Super autora Jodi Picoult, do alto de seus 172.5 k seguidores, pôs BOYFRIEND MATERIAL, de Alexis Hall, uma história gay muito fofa, engraçadíssima e despretensiosa, que acabou de sair pela Sourcebooks e do qual já falamos nessa coluna LÁ FORA, no topo de sua lista de leituras de verão, compartilhando no Twiter. Aliás, o romanção de Hall está dando show online e de crítica e já se conta que será traduzido para holandês e hebraico.


“This is a triumph.” –Publishers Weekly STARRED review

“Downright hilarious.”–Booklist STARRED Review

“This is a deeply funny book, especially for fans of situational and British humor, but it’s also a love story so endearing and believable that readers will alternate among laughing, grimacing at Luc’s self-sabotage and sighing happily.” —Shelf Awareness

“Hall (How To Bang a ­Billionaire) delivers a comedic romance with a not-very-sympathetic hero who tries to be better, a sexy barrister, and a gaggle of oddball secondary characters. Fans of Casey McQuiston’s Red, White & Royal Blue may enjoy.” —Library Journal

“How? How was this book written? My vote is witchcraft. What a study in character development. It’s a how-to without even trying. I’m going to treat this novel like I do my favorite cardigan and buy 5 copies for when one wears out. Everyone needs to read this. Brilliance on every single page. Hilarious, witty, tender, and stunning. I LOVE THIS BOOK.” — Christina Lauren, New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author

“FAKE DATING, REAL FEELINGS, BEST JOKES.” —Olivia Waite, author of The Lady’s Guide to Celestial Mechanics

“Every once in a while you read a book that you want to SCREAM FROM ROOFTOPS about. I’m screaming, people! This book made me shriek-hyena-laugh AND roll up in a ball AND want so badly to go to dinner with Luc and Oliver, and y’know BE them. It’s brilliant.” —Sonali Dev, USA Today Bestselling Author

“Alexis Hall is the undisputed master of romantic comedy.” —Jenny Holiday, USA Today Bestselling Author

“Alexis Hall’s Boyfriend Material perfectly balances laugh-out-loud-while-reading-alone-in-an-empty-room with those-aren’t-tears-in-my-eyes-just-allergies.” —Kris Ripper, author of the Scientific Method Universe

“Boyfriend Material is the joyfully queer British romcom escape book I didn’t know I needed. It’s absurdly funny and swoonily romantic, with a sharp edge of wit and observation that keeps the story bounding along. An unbridled ‘one-more-chapter-oh-no-it’s-3am’ delight.” —KJ Charles
