Reading, Writing and Being Generally Awesome

I have no idea what I'm doing.
Who We Are - T.J. Klune Who We Are was a nice novel, but definitely not as good as the first. I don't have a whole lot to say about this book. It didn't make a huge impact on my life. I can't say exactly why I didn't enjoy it as much as the first, but I didn't. Though the beginning sure did draw my attention. It was so strange, but a very funny and unexpected way to begin the novel.The writing was similar to the first book. There was a lot of rambling on Bear's part. I had trouble getting past all the details that he gave the reader. He explained every single little thing. It got obnoxious very quickly. His sarcasm was still as fun to read as it was in the first one. He made me laugh often and loudly. My family probably thought I was crazy. There were some parts where I really teared up and my heart ached. The author really knows how to tug at the heart strings. He's a skilled writer. Only skilled writers can evoke many emotions in a realistic way with a novel. It's a hard thing to make it believable, Mr. Klune really pulls it off.There were some grammatical issues. More often than not, I got annoyed with Bear's perspective. He whined a lot and his internal monologue was in the book an overwhelming amount of times. There were some things that were left unanswered and I want those things answered desperately. They are really bothering me. Maybe if Mr. Klune continues with a spin-off series, those things will be answered.I loved Otter and Ty just as much as I did in the first book. Bear, Otter and Ty are such a sweet family. And I enjoyed reading about the new characters presented in this book as much as I enjoyed reading about the characters that were introduced in the first book. Mr. Klune writes his characters very well and in a way that you can't help but to fall in love with them.I enjoyed the way the epilogue left off. I would love a book based around Ty and Dominic. They are such cute friends and I would love to see how their story progresses. The cast of this story is phenomenal. They provide a great, heart-warming story that all fans of gay romances should enjoy.
