Bookstagram Loves ‘This Is Kind of an Epic Love Story’ Almost as Much as We Do

Bookstagram Loves 'This Is Kind of an Epic Love Story' Almost as Much as We Do

We know we fell head over heels for Nathan Bird, Oliver James Hernández, and everyone else in This Is Kind of an Epic Love Story—including the fabulous author Kheryn Callender who made it all happen. But what makes us even more excited than the story of two incredibly compelling and adorable QPOC characters falling in love? The equally passionate fan love of bookstagrammers everywhere!

In case you’ve been living under a rock, This Is Kind of an Epic Love Story centers around sixteen-year-old Nathan Bird and his quest to survive high school, figure out if he loves his ex-girlfriend-turned-best friend or if he’s still in love with her, maybe turn his aspiring screenwriter dreams into a reality, and rekindle a friendship into, he doesn’t know, maybe something more with his childhood best friend. And that’s just the beginning of this epic story!

You guys need to read this book so we can all share the love (what’s that saying—love is like a candle, it doesn’t diminish with sharing, only grows?). Yeah, you know the sentiment. We need to share the candle flame of love burning inside of us for this book, with all of you, and with all our fellow book nerds on the ‘Gram! So scroll down to check out some of our faves, and don’t forget to upload your own #bookstagram and tag us @epicreads for a chance to be featured!

🍂 You know when you have to buy a book because it has a great title? Just like you have to buy the book with the gorgeous cover? Or the one that has glittery fonts? That book you saw people loving and you don't want to feel excluded? Or the one that you just HAVE to buy because it's a book? Of course I'm going to buy you, little book, I'm not a monster. Come to mama. • • That's a poem I called "No self-control aka you woman just like to spend money you should save but noooo and now you have 208 unread books SHAME" • • Books are LOVE so I'm going to ask you >>> what's the most romantic book you've ever read? The one that made you swoon and hearts appeared all around you? I don't want to know the most romantic scene because I don't want to spoil myself. Tell me tell me tell me!! • • • • • • • #flatlay #bookstagramfeature #bookfeaturepage #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #booksofinstagram #booksofig #bookishfeatures #bookish #booklr #bookster #booknerdigans #bibliophile #bookphotography #igreads #readersofinstagram #bookstafeatures #bookworm #bookphoto #instabook #book #lgbtqiabooks #lgbtqreads #lgbtqia #lgbtqya #thisiskindofanepiclovestory #kheryncallender #autumn
