    1. Look, I read this book in a single day (a working day) and cried like a baby at the end of it, what more do you want?This is a lovely book. Genuinely lovely, as in found-family, people being good to one another, screwing up and forgiveness and love and reaching out. Community. Things being how they ought to. People not being okay really, but being loved anyway. This stuff goes straight to my tear ducts. Excuse me, I need a hanky. It's got a central key romance theme--gay couple Singer and Jake i [...]

    2. 4.5 starsLovely, lovely, lovely!! I swear, Kris Ripper just gets better and better with every book ze writes. Kith and Kin is all about family, whether we be related by blood or circumstance, and how having people at your back - who accept you no matter what - is so damn important. I don't know much about large families, having never come from one or married into one, but I want to be an honorary Derrie so fucking much. I love them all with their pushy, invasive, gossipy ways and would love to f [...]

    3. One of the most absorbing books I've read this year. Briefly: the story feels both real and familiar. It's about family , found family and what's it's like to be an adult child.(7/11/17) More complete review: If I had to sum this book up in one word, I’d choose: real.Kith and Kin deserves many more words. The book is a near perfect family saga. The only thing that would have made it more perfect would have been another seven hundred pages including the relationship between Singer’s parents a [...]

    4. I read this solely because K.J. Charles mentioned it on her blog and wow am I glad I did. What a wonderful book this was! It's the story of a gay couple who are trying to adopt a kid and it's about them and both their families and friends. I told my coworker today I couldn't wait to continue hanging out with all these characters, and that probably best sums up my feelings. It's funny and heartwarming and genuine and just such a pleasure to read.K.J. Charles recommended it right after also recomm [...]

    5. I have never read any single book this beautifully complex. There are six mayor plots and subplots, and so much subtext on family, relationships, parenting, therapy, autonomy, kink, communication, and adoption, just to name the ones that immediately come to mind, that I took my time reading, trying not to miss anything. Read the Author's Acknowledgments! :)This is in the 'Scientific Method' universe, like off to one side. I think it kind of helped to have read those, but I think they aren't nece [...]
