No hi ha cap discussió a Converses sobre aquesta obra.
Heartstopper meets A Knight's Tale in this queer medieval rom com about love, friendship, and being brave enough to change the course of history. It's been hundreds of years since King Arthur's reign. His descendant, Arthur, a future Lord and general gadabout, has been betrothed to Gwendoline, the quick-witted, short-tempered princess of England, since birth. The only thing they can agree on is that they despise each other. They're forced to spend the summer together at Camelot in the run up to their nuptials, and within 24 hours, Gwen has discovered Arthur kissing a boy and Arthur has gone digging for Gwen's childhood diary and found confessions about her crush on the kingdom's only lady knight, Bridget Leclair. Realizing they might make better allies than enemies, they make a reluctant pact to cover for each other, and as things heat up at the annual royal tournament, Gwen is swept off her feet by her knight and Arthur takes an interest in Gwen's royal brother. Lex Croucher's Gwen and Art Are Not in Love is chock full of sword-fighting, found family, and romantic shenanigans destined to make readers fall in love. "Fun and genuinely funny, with lovely friendships and first-rate dialogue. Gwen and Art may not be in love, but I fell for both of them." - Rainbow Rowell, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Simon Snow trilogy "Gwen & Art Are Not in Love was exactly what I needed right now--a delightful, heart-warming, hilarious historical romp, overflowing with queer panic and terrible jokes. I loved it." - Alice Oseman, New York Times bestselling author of the Heartstopper series

REVIEW: I received a free copy of this book from NetGalley and St. Martin’s Press and am voluntarily writing an honest review.
Gwen & Art Are not in Love is a story of two royal teenagers in the Middle Ages who are being forced into a marriage that neither of them want – mainly because she is into girls, and he is into guys. They decide to pretend to be falling in love as a cover to their real feelings.
I really wanted to like this book. I love the idea of it. Unfortunately, it didn’t really live up to what I wanted. First of all, this book really has absolutely nothing to do with King Arthur. There are brief mentions of him throughout the book, but nothing that is really important to the story. Secondly, nothing really ~happens and for most of the book it’s actually pretty boring. Thirdly, there’s really not a single likable character in the book, which made it really difficult for me to connect.
The three stars I’m giving this book are for the following thing: LGBTQIA+ representation! There need to be more books like this, in that way. The writing – although little happened, the writing was solid and easy to read. And the fact that this book is pretty short – quite a few of the last books I’ve read were way over-long and I appreciate that this one wasn’t. ( )
