    A big thank you to the author Matthew who reached out and gave me a free copy of his book for a review. All my opinions are my own and are not influenced in anyway.

However he soon starts having a spark of feelings for a guy who he's never met at all which soon leads him to question his sexuality.

Land on Me is a coming of age story about Landon Griffin who has it all a girlfriend, popular and is on the brink of a football scholarship. However he soon starts having a spark of feelings for a guy who he's never met at all which soon leads him to question his sexuality. I found the writing style of this book really well done and i felt like i was going through all the emotions of the main character during the course of the story which made the book go extremely fast. I did however find some of the pacing a little choppy in some parts and it was a small inconvenience that really didn't bother me to much but i'm glad for the most part it the book flew rather well. I loved the interactions with Landon and the mystery guy throughout the book and it was good to see Landon going through his thought processes during these meetings and to see them change over the course of the book. The exchanges between the two really left me wanting to know more and see this relationship expanded even more. Building on this i feel like watching Landon's journey of self discovery was such a beautiful thing to watch because he goes through so many stages with his friends questioning him and himself questioning his sexaulity to allowing his heart to open up and become more open to himself. Matthew also tackled some good topics during the course of the book including Homophobia, toxic masculinity and suicide. The topics were all tackled incredibly well and were done in such a way that it wasn't over the top. I am glad that more and more YA books are writing more openly about these issues because there still relevant to society today. All the side characters as well i really loved however i would have loved to gotten to know some of them more as there personalities really shown through in the little amount of time they got but i still loved them all nonetheless. Matthew has written a fantastic debut YA novel that focuses on queer-to-queer relationships and the issues surrounding coming out and the effects that is has on teenagers today. He has written it in a way that was real and honest with a lot of people who are apart of the LGTBQ+ community can really relate. I also once again would like to thank Matthew for giving me the opportunity in reviewing his book and with how good this book was i cannot wait to see what he comes out with next! he is definitely an author to watch for!

    4,5 stars. First of all: I have to say I love this cover! It just has something that pulls me in, that makes me curious about the story that's behind it. And I'm just so happy it intrigued me, because this book was one of the most beautiful, genuine coming of age books I have read. From the first pages I was hooked. I immediately felt a connection with Landon, the mc's whose pov we are reading. He's 18 years old, attending high school. Lost his mother 6 months ago and is left with his father, who 4,5 stars.

And I'm just so happy it intrigued me, because this book was one of the most beautiful, genuine coming of age books I have read. From the first pages I was hooked. I immediately felt a connection with Landon, the mc's whose pov we are reading. He's 18 years old, attending high school. Lost his mother 6 months ago and is left with his father, who is running for mayor in the small Texas town they live in. He has a girlfriend, plays football on a decent level, has a best friend since childhood. Everything is looking good for him on the outside. But he doesn't have real conversations with his dad. Landon is still grieving for the loss of his mother, but he doesn't talk with his father about how he feels. He doesn't understand that his father doesn't seem to share the same feelings of loss and missing. "My dad likes to say grief is just love with nowhere to go," I said. "So I understand feeling stuck. I've felt stuck for the last six months. The same goes for the schools he applies to. His father hopes he'll be offered a scholarship, Landon wants to go to NYC to become a writer. And then, one day, he sees a shirtless guy cleaning graffiti off a wall at school, and he can't stop thinking about him. It throws everything he thought he knew about himself, out of the window. It confuses him. Why can't he stop thinking about the guy? Why is he suddenly curious to find out how it would feel to touch a guy, to kiss him while he has the best and sweetest girlfriend he could wish for? I loved the genuine highschool vibe this story has. The confused teenager we all can relate to. The real life worries, the teenage conversations and behavior - like a messy room, where clothes are lingering that make the room smell. I also loved how the mystery surrounding Caleb was done. Just like Landon, we as a reader, are given bits and pieces of information to form a picture. Caleb's life has been all but an easy ride. I felt for him, wanted to make things better for him. Not that he truly needed that - he was well capable of taking care of himself and the only family member he cares about, Parker, but still...at times I really wanted to hug him. "I loved kissing you," I said before turning around. Caleb's hand was on the doorknob but hadn't pulled it open. He just stood there with his back to me. "I've never felt happier kissing anyone in my life. I don't know what it's supposed to feel like, but I know that when I'm with you, I finally feel free." While Landon's confusion consumes him, we also feel the longing for Caleb, and at the same time his fear for hurting Lauren, his girlfriend, which leaves him making decisions that are not for his best interest, but very understandable. His grief for his mother, his sadness was palpable. It made me tear up when he was in his dad's room and looking at her picture, remembering and missing her. A very emotional, touching scene! It made me feel all the emotions. The secondary characters are really interesting; all of them are just as dimensional as Landon and Caleb. Genuine, real life teenagers, with typical teenager thoughts and problems. One of them is Steven, a guy who Landon used to be friends with. I felt for him, the way he was bullied for being gay. And still he tried to be himself, brave enough to not hide who he was. "Look at you. We're very different, Landon," Steven said with a small chuckle. "You're a jock, you blend in with the crowd. I'm a fem boy who practically sweats glitter, it's obvious. No one suspects you because you have a deep voice and the clothes you wear are normal." There is so much more to this story than Landon finding out his sexuality. Trigger warnings should be read and taken seriously. There's bullying, use of drugs, (internalized) homophobia, loss of a parent, mention of suicide, domestic violence. All of that brings so many layers to this story that it makes it a lot more than just a young adult, coming of age novel. It perfectly unravels the complications that is the teenagers world. "What do you want me to say?" "You tell me," he said flatly. I closed my eyes, sitting there thinking. All I could see behind my eyelids was Caleb's face. I felt a collection of butterflies fill my stomach and took a deep breath. "I'm..." I hesitated. "...gay," I whispered. "I'm sorry, what was that?" "...I'm gay," I said a little louder with my eyes still closed. "I couldn't hear you, speak up, please." "I'm gay," I said, with a raised voice. I could feel the butterflies building as they pushed their way up to my chest. "One more time for the people in the back!" The butterflies forced their way to my throat, and I squeezed my eyes and let them escape. "I'M GAY!" I screamed toward the roof of the car, releasing the butterflies into the air with my words of affirmation. My chest felt like I lifted an anvil off of it. It's hard to believe this is a debut novel. The writing is so good. Flawless. And the dialogues are perfect (and I'm a sucker for those). I think everyone should read this book, though I can also understand that not everyone wants to be reminded of one of the most complicated periods in human life - the misunderstandings, the insecurity's, the confusion about who you are and who you want to be, where you want to go with your life. The search for answers to questions that are not always so easy to answer. In the end the basics for who you turn out to become, for which course your life will take, is set in those complicated teenage years, and I think the author did an extremely good job to make you, as a reader, relive and relate again. This book is not perfect, hence the 4,5 stars. I had a bit of an issue with the things that happened after the prom. I got that Dan was changing. I also think I understood where he was coming from. His internalized homophobia was like this growing tumor that he could not overcome. Assuming it was his internalized homophobia, because even though the author points in that direction, we never really get Dan's confirmation. But I think it's quite a long way from bullying by calling names and punching, to what Dan did in the end. But that might be me. I highly recommend this book and truly feel like you are missing out on something beautiful if you let this one pass. I kindly received an ARC and this is my honest, unbiased review

Landon is a complex main character who is struggling with many emotions during his senior year of high school. Throughout his senior year, you witness many moments and relationships drastically change due to his acknowledging and realizing his deeply hidden true feelings regarding his sexuality. Another wonderfully crafted aspect of this story besides the sexual discovery is the slow-burn friendship to romance between Caleb and Landon. What initially was just an infatuation and crush builds into a meaningful connection that cannot be denied. Caleb and Landon are perfect for one another, but due to complications, their relationship encounters many obstacles that result in a shocking conclusion. I loved reading this story and cannot wait for the next installment in Landon and Caleb's story. So thrilled to have read this wonderful story of self-acceptance and personal growth.

    LAND ON ME by Matthew Corr is a queer coming-of-age story that has quite a bit packed inside. I instantly felt connected to the main character and a lot of his pressures/struggles.

I instantly felt connected to the main character and a lot of his pressures/struggles. While I may have graduated high school almost 20 years ago, you can't help but recall certain feelings and emotions when you read about someone going through similar situations with a lot of the same outside elements at play. Corr totally captures the internal struggle of our main character, Landon, as he tries to understand who he is, what he wants, and how things and people in the world around him might be holding him back. It also plays on the opposite: those things and people that can propel you forward and help you on your journey. And Landon's journey is not always easy or comfortable as you read along. There's a lot of what you might expect to encounter: bullying, homophobia, hate speech, etc. This book broke my heart at times and also made me hopeful. Something I am most hopeful for is that there are authors out here like Corr telling these stories that I never had the chance to read when I was going through the same things. LAND ON ME is truly something special. Also, how am I just now realizing that the main character's name, Landon, is comprised of the first two words of the title of the book? Is this a coincidence or planned?! Either way, Land On Me is a great debut and I am looking forward to the sequel already!

If you’re looking for a compelling and beautiful roller coaster ride of emotions, then this book is for you. I can’t wait to read the sequel!

So why does he feel so confused when he spots a mysterious boy that he’s never seen before on school grounds?

So why does he feel so confused when he spots a mysterious boy that he’s never seen before on school grounds? Caleb is the town’s newest bad boy, sent to do community service at the high school and the rumors about him start flying, but are any of them true? The two boys find themselves drawn to each other, but is Landon willing to risk everything?? Pros: -I love a good story centered around a first gay panic and figuring yourself out, I think a lot of YA readers will be able to relate to Landon in that regard -it also felt very much reminiscent of early 2000’s CW teen drama shows like Friday Night Lights, One Tree Hill, etc. Which are all shows I love! It totally fit that vibe. -I like how the author wasn’t afraid to tackle big and heavy topics, like losing your parents or being bullied. Cons: -The main character seemed so naive and just kinda let things happen to/around him, and it got old after a while. -the pacing felt a little off, like some scenes would drag on with a lot of unneeded detail and then there’s be a choppy flashback or two tossed in randomly, and the ending got very intense very fast. -I also felt like there were just too many different side plot lines going, like there was too much going on for one book. Overall thoughts: I like where the author was going with this, and while some things weren’t my favorite, I’m looking forward to seeing what he writes in the future! This was a quick read that I’d recommend to anyone who wants to read an intense indie lgbtq fiction book! TW: homophobia and bullying, homophobic slurs, suicide, a school shooting drill, loss of a loved one, drug abuse, cheating, child abuse, gun violence

When Caleb, the new, hot janitor arrives at his school, Landon develops an obsession that leaves him no choice but to face the truth about himself, a truth he can’t even say out loud - he’s gay. The first half was very enjoyable, it even made me laugh out loud at some parts. Corr sure knows how to write funny (may I say slapstick) scenes and Landon׳s voice, with all of his flaws and clumsiness, was relatable and fun to read. In the second half of the book, Landon turned from relatable and funny to annoying with the choices and the mistakes he made. While I know how hard it must be to live in a toxic and homophobic environment, and to feel the pressure from society's expectations, it still doesn’t give you the right to be a douche. Another problem I had with the second half was the overload of events, some of them felt a bit random and all over the place and when they happened they got solved too fast so that the book could move on to the next event. I feel like Corr tried to go with so many directions and it was just a lot for one book. Still, this book kept me entertained and interested the whole time and I am curious to read the sequel!

He is good at sports as well as in studies, his father is running for mayor of Madison, Texas and he has a stable girlfriend, Lauren. All is going good for him until one day when he saw a mysterious boy in his school premises. The waves of feelings sparked in him for that boy made him do all the crazy and unbelievable things he had never done before. His known world seems unknown for him and the new boy is taking a huge part in his life. Living in a conservative town, he is unable to express his feelings to anyone and simultaneously he was trying to figure out his position within the span of sexuality. Though he finds out about his 'Mystery Boy', Caleb and they are having a pretty good friendship, what is going to be the future of this relationship? . Read the book to get to the climax. 📖 📖 My Views - The book is what we call as warm, cozy , feel-good book. The story starts with a 'love at first sight' kind of situation (though only the back) but it was exciting to read how Landon was head over heels for this unknown boy and would do anything to know his "Mystery Boy's" identity. The author portrayed different emotions of a teenager going through a confused phase about his life, career, sexuality , which is very relatable. The author has also portrayed other deep emotions as well like love, loss, anger, depression, rage and all of them were portrayed beautifully leaving you emotional. . The narration is to the point and the language is also easy. All the characters are presented beautifully. . Overall it's definitely a heart-warming, emotional yet cozy read. Congratulations to the author for such an amazing debut book.

The story follows Landon Griffin, a high school senior living his life as he awaits an impending football scholarship to college, his father’s election as Mayor of their largely conservative small town of Madison, Texas, and the continued bliss with his girlfriend, Lauren. However, Landon’s life and feelings of self shift when a guy he’s never met, codenamed ‘Mystery Boy,’ shows up at his high school as the new janitor. Prompted by the physical allure and overall mystery of ‘Mystery Boy,’ Landon finds himself questioning who he is and what direction his unearthed desires are pointing him towards. With his anxiety mounting and the questioning from his friends, Landon attempts to arrive at his own reckoning with identity and sexuality while pursuing the one his heart is so strongly pining for. Things I loved: •The coming-of-age aspect is so accurately and consistently portrayed throughout the novel! I found myself relating to Landon’s questioning, his stumbles and his follies when I was his age in high school. •Landon and ‘Mystery Boy’s’ interactions. Packed full of intrigue, desire, zest, all that good stuff! •I loved having Steven as a character to mirror the simultaneous anxiety and carefree nature that Landon could also have as an emerging queer person. •PARKER. Sweet, innocent, I-just-want-to-squish-him little Parker! •Incredible balance of heavy subjects like addiction, toxic masculinity, homophobia, and suicide. All of these subjects were a part of the story at some point, but were all handled carefully and respectfully. •The fact that the last third of the book is so engrossing and heart-pounding that I couldn’t put it down at all! The only real thing I wish I had gotten more from out of this book is getting to deeply know some of the side characters like Tasha, Miguel, and the other queer characters from the club. You get a sense of their personalities, but they are all more or less in and out of the scene and I found myself wanting to know more about them! Altogether, Matthew Corr has written an incredible tour de force of a debut novel. It blends a coming-of-age tale with the harsh realities of the world and the personal struggles and traumas that queer and queer-questioning teens face constantly. Huge thank you to Matt for giving me this opportunity; I definitely need to grab a physical copy which comes out on August 26th! I can’t wait to see more from Matt!

Corr’s writing was immediately able to draw me into the story about Landon, a high school senior who is just trying to make the most of his last year of high school. We quickly come to realize that Landon has a huge secret he is trying to hide from the people he loves most and Corr gives us a wonderful, yet terrifying front row seat to the raging war going on inside Landon’s head as he tries to come to terms with who he is. The story is a coming of age gay YA novel, but Corr was able to add so much more depth to it. Growing up and finding a side of yourself that doesn’t fit society’s “norm”, the natural reaction is to stuff it away and try to ignore it and avoid any potential “social pain” it may cause. I love that term,by the way, it is most definitely a thing! But we know it is just a matter of time until that side is just screaming to surface, and ignoring it usually just causes hurt and tremendous anxiety. Landon’s journey is a prime example. There are some truly terrifying scenes in this one as Corr reminds us how far as a society we still have to go in acceptance and tolerance of people who are different. This story gives us a couple of heroes that feel so real, genuine and just easy to cheer for. This story also reminds us that it takes true courage to be ourselves and not what society tells us to be. When we do use that courage and can be ourselves authentically, it is the most beautiful thing. I would recommend this book to anyone and everyone, but most importantly, I am so glad this story will be available for young teens who may be struggling with their own identity. Thank you so much Matthew Corr for putting your important story out into the world and thank you for honoring me with an advanced copy! Land on Me comes out on August 26th! Do yourself a favor and pick up a copy, you won’t regret it:)

    This book is AMAZING! The first few chapters I was like “good book, glad I’m reading this”. By the end I was like “omg everyone needs to read this!” I went through every emotion when reading this, happy, excited, funny, sad, worried, scared, elated. I could not read this in one sitting because of all of the emotions. I had to sit down and think about many chapters. There were so very many eye opening moments in this book.

    Landon Griffin is eighteen and a senior at Madison High in Texas. He lives right across the street from school and it makes life easy for that last exciting year. He has the ability to gain a football scholarship that will help him immensely. Peer pressure, long time friends and changes in Landon himself, have him face the reality that his world is changing. He has a girlfriend, Lauren, who he cares about. A long time friend, Dan who he notices changes-in and not sure what to do about them. Tash Landon Griffin is eighteen and a senior at Madison High in Texas. He lives right across the street from school and it makes life easy for that last exciting year. He has the ability to gain a football scholarship that will help him immensely. Peer pressure, long time friends and changes in Landon himself, have him face the reality that his world is changing. He has a girlfriend, Lauren, who he cares about. A long time friend, Dan who he notices changes-in and not sure what to do about them. Tasha, who oversees the school paper and always encourages Landon to write entertaining stories. There’s also Steve who he made an effort to make friends with until a tragic incident. Curtis Griffin, Landons father, is the superintendent at Madison High, also campaigning to be mayor. He not only has plans for himself but for his sons continuing education. Landon and his father still suffer, in their own way, a great loss of only six months. To make his senior year complicated, Mystery Boy, appears at school. Landon finds himself mesmerized by this individual. He can’t seem to stop thinking about Mystery Boy and becomes persistent about finding out more about him. Mystery Boy seems to be a couple years older than Landon and Landons been warned by his father, to stay away from this person. Of course, the rumors start flying all over school about the stranger. The more Landon finds out, he’s eager to start a friendship with Mystery Boy, and life takes him on a roller coaster ride. “Land on Me” is a debut novel by Matthew R. Corr and it wasn’t what I expected. It’s an easy read, with many emotional moments and brings out a coming-of-age struggle. Landon Griffin has come to the realization how his friends have changed and the changes that have come to the forefront about himself. Landon is actually a good kid, he’s still naive about many things in life and he never want’s to hurt anyones feelings. He’s still caught between being a teenager and adulthood and it clouds his decision making, which sometimes causes more issues than solving them. Corr brings out a many issues concerning young adults. His dream sequence that Landon has involving the church and his father, expresses so much fear. He also makes a clear point, as eighteen year olds, on the cusp of becoming adults, you can’t always live in your parents shadow or ideals. He also addresses conservative issues of parents that arise and are passed on to their children. Also, the support and understanding that teachers showed toward Landon as he expresses his issues. I’ll admit, I haven’t read too many YA books but I do have two favorite authors that I follow. “Land On Me” is a very entertaining, coming-of-age story, that has the beginning of an interesting mystery. Matthew Corr has high potential to continue with Landon Griffin’s story. I read the sneak peak for the next upcoming story and I’m interested to see what develops with the mystery that arises.

    This was an intriguing coming-of-age story and a gay awakening triggered by a mysterious bad boy.

It was also a story dealing with heavy topics such as the loss of a parent, bullying and homophobia, as well as the struggle to find yourself, which was powerful and gripping. And I certainly do have a thing for bad boys with a good heart… Landon Griffin is a star football player in a small town Texas high school, with a dad running for mayor and the perfect girlfriend. But his simple life shatters when feelings spark for a new mysterious guy, Caleb, who has been sent to do community service at the high school. Afraid to risk everything, Landon struggles to hide his new obsession while trying to figure out who this boy is and where he himself fits within the spectrum of sexuality. There was a lot going on in this story, with Landon’s struggle and journey to self-discovery, but also the side characters’ stories now and in the past, and all the drama, lies, bullying and violence happening. My favorite character was definitely Steve and I would have loved to get even more of his story included in this book. I rooted so for Steve and how brave he was for being true to himself despite the bullying and how mean his former friends treated him, Chris especially, but also Landon for taking the cowardly way out and never standing up for Steve. I also adored Steve’s amazing queer friends from the club and would have loved for them to be a bigger part of the story. But hopefully we’ll see more of them in the next book! Landon on the other hand was a main character that it wasn’t easy to root for at times. He wanted to do what was right, but felt so naïve and quite selfish, that he ended up doing just the opposite. He sure made a lot of bad decisions and even though I could understand his motivation, some of these decisions (like cheating) were just not acceptable. But all in all, this was an enjoyable read that kept me entertained and interested the whole time and I can’t wait to read the sequel! I also want to give some extra love to the gorgeous cover, which drew my attention from the very first moment and which also was perfect for the story! 3.5 stars rounding up to 4. Thank you to Gay Book Promotion for the ARC and blog tour invitation! All opinions are my own and I am leaving my honest review voluntarily.

His main character, Landon Griffin, is incredibly affable but has all the idiocy one might expect from an eighteen year old kid who doesn't really know up from down. Our other MC is a complete mystery to him at the beginning and he fills in the blanks with little things he learns, rumors he hears, and his own judgements that he creates in his mind just watching him in the hallways of their school. Watching him reconcile the person that he believes his Mystery Boy to be with who he actually is was simply adorable. The characters in this book, both our main characters and the side characters, are all deeply interesting. Landon and Caleb hold my attention and there are so many times when I want to just reach into the book and give Landon a hug or a smack on the head. Landon's girlfriend, Lauren, and friends, Tasha and Steven, are well rounded and dynamic characters who pop off of the page. His best friend, Dan, feels a little cliche, but having grown up in a small conservative town, I recognize that some things are cliche for a reason. I knew at least three people like Dan growing up. Corr makes good use of dreams and flashbacks to show us a little more of what is going on beneath Landon's surface. The vivid dreams and daydreams appear frequently on the page, showing us more of Landon's overactive imagination mingling with his personal anxieties about everything he is going through at the moment. This book is low steam due to the young adult genre and has a fair amount of angst. However, this angst is well balanced by the fluff and by scenes that had me literally laughing out loud - especially when Landon attempts to go on a well known dating app. This book has a lot of heart and I cannot wait to read the sequel. ** ARC RECIEVED FOR FAIR AND HONEST REVIEW **

He's got the perfect girlfriend and everything going for him...so why can't he stop thinking about the mystery guy he's seen cleaning up around school? I'll start this review with some content warnings, as this book is dark. I didn't expect it going in, but it deals with (CW's:) homophobia and bullying with multiple uses of the F slur throughout the book, death of a parent, suicide, parental neglect/abuse, drug use, and gun violence. There's also one brief mention of HP, for those who try to avoid it. The darkness doesn't take over the message of the book though. There's plenty of light as well. Corr writes humor well, slipping it into the pages between the bits of hiding and anxiety to give us a breather. Landon's journey isn't an easy one. He's used to being one thing and figuring out that that thing has been a lie this whole time is scary and world flipping. I loved the emotion in this book. The relationships Landon has are all full of it, from the strained tension with his republican politician father to the changing tides of his friendship with Dan, his best friend since childhood. The scenes between Landon and Caleb (his Mystery Guy) are incredibly heartfelt. Seeing them slowly open up to each other and feeling the emotion between Landon finally feeling something settle in his skin is something special to read. There are just a few things in this book I'd change - the pacing and some of the story elements that felt a bit off for high school. But overall, I think it's a well-done story and I will absolutely be reading the sequel!

Corr Grief is just love with nowhere to go. Landon Griffin is a senior at Madison High in Madison, Texas, or “Mad High” as it’s called. He was the running back and co-captain of the school’s football team. He has had a girlfriend, who he has dated for over a year, and things were looking good for him to get a football scholarship. His dad is the superintendent of the high school and in his first year of campaigning to become Mayor of Madison, which packed on the pressure of being the golden boy. One day he notices the back of someone in school. He is left wondering what he looks like from the front. And why does he even care? Giving the stranger the codename Mystery Boy, his simple life shatters when feelings spark for a guy he’s never met. Why is fate playing a cat and mouse game with his obsession with Mystery Boy? So, while trying to figure out where all this fits into the spectrum of his sexuality, his worries are compounded by what if people found out, everyone would treat him differently. It could even ruin his dad’s chances of getting the votes he needed for mayor. It’s a beautiful coming of age story with a little confusion of sexuality mixed in. It’s respectfully and sweetly done. The gay stress the story invoked felt real. It filled me with a sense of dread, and sadness, though story does have some lighter notes from the 1980’s movie nostalgia the author throws in. I didn’t want to stop reading because I didn’t want the book to be over, so I was stuck. I would put the book down knowing it was going to end soon but pick it back up again because I wanted to know how it ended. The next book can’t come soon enough! LGBTQ+ Coming of Age Romance

Land on Me reveals a lot of character depth through flashbacks that give a deeper Insight into character relations and feelings. There’s also the use of dream sequences, which occasionally add another layer to Landon’s character but the sheer amount of them felt unnecessary. Landon is a flawed character that makes you want to scream but also is really in need of a hug. I was battling if I liked him or not the entire book but ended up finding him to be both redeemed and deeply relatable. For being almost 700 pages, Land on me is a very quick read. Some over descriptions of non important scenes seemed kind of unnecessary like ideally you could probably cut 50-100 pages and it wouldn’t impact the story at all. I cannot stand when there’s a Harry Potter reference in a queer book, it just leaves a bad taste in my mouth. Besides that this book had a lot of triggers so I listed them in the warning below. TRIGGER WARNINGS: Harry Potter, Suicide, Death of a Family Member, Bullying, Gun Violence, Car Accident, Homophobic Violence The ending felt a little rushed to me, but I was so happy when I saw that a sequel is coming out! I can’t wait to see how Landons journey continues.

Both feature a character coming to terms with his sexuality while trying to figure out the identity of a mystery love interest and dealing with the complications of coming out to everyone you know. I will say that it took me a while to get into this book. The beginning parts felt very awkwardly written - too many linking/helping verbs and a lot of what I felt was over explanation from the main character. Over time, this problem alleviated, but it did detract from my reading experience, as I found myself skimming a lot. I also felt like some of the plot beats were just slightly off - nothing too major - but like some parts could have been tightened up and happen earlier rather than hashing out too many plot points by the end. All in all, this wasn't a bad read - it just wasn't for me. I wish Matthew R. Corr the best of luck with the release, and check this book out if you think it's up your alley.

And we can be sure that this is just the beginning for Corr’s career (though I won’t say too much—you’ll have to read it yourself to find out why!). “Land On Me” is the exciting debut of a new author who clearly has a lot to say—and I, for one, can’t wait to hear more!

    I had a good time with this book. It did what I needed it to do. It was funny at times, sweet, shocking, sexy, and had the emotional depth that allowed me to feel connected to the characters.
