    platypire/j-hooligan/1I have been looking forward to the release of this book since I discovered it was going to be published, a couple months ago. I've been stalking the author's page, waiting to hear for the release. The moment I saw it was out, I one-clicked it. I needed to read it!I've read other stories by the author before, so I knew she was good at telling a captivating story. But I didn't expect was how much I would become caught up in this one. I had to fight myself to put it down when [...]

    celebrityreaders.wordpressIt’s the first book I ever read that had a transgender person in it. This story is about a woman who was born in a man’s body and decided to fix it. The obstacles of trying to gain acceptance from others, especially family, and one of the most important people in a girl’s life, her mom. Her mother has a specific anonymity toward her. Mom barely acknowledges her and when she does only uses her birth name. She feels abandoned by her mom and also feels like she is th [...]

    Once again, I have learned my lesson about not downloading "samples" before buying a book. I figured for $1.99 it couldn't be too disappointing, and with numerous positive reviews.First of all, Ridener should get rid of her beta, because he/she is not doing his/her job correctly. A few typos are acceptable. Constant instances of improperly used dialogue tags are not. Speech tags are used thusly:"Hey!" he said."Nice to see you," she replied.No capital letters in speech tags. No periods within quo [...]

    I was gifted a copy of this book by the author, and this in NO WAY influences my review.Lydia didn't want to go home, but she had to, to attend her Gran's funeral. She was only supposed to stay for a few days, but Gran put conditions on her inheritance: 180 days in Prairie Town. It didn't take Callum long to notice his best friend's 'cousin' from out of town. It certainly did not take him 180 days to fall in love with Lydia. But some people were not pleased with Lydia's return home.This is, in s [...]

    3 1/2 Platypires for 180 Days by T.E. RidenerI won a free copy from a giveaway hosted by the blog Celebrity Readers.“Love doesn’t know gender. Love doesn’t understand what used to be or what is; it only understands what could be and what should be.” This is my first full length trans-romance novel but not my first read with a transgender person. I heard good things about 180 days from friends of mine and was pretty excited that I won a copy.I thought the story was really nice and well wr [...]

    I was excited to read this fictional story about Lydia and how she overcomes the stigma attached to transgender people in today's society. Lydia comes back to hometown after her grandmother's death and must face the reality of how hurtful life can be, especially when it's her own mother that will not accept her for who she is. The rest of her family accepts her and loves her, but her mother is hurtful and downright mean. In order to get her inheritance from her grandmother, she must stay in her [...]

    2.5*I really wanted to love this book, the synopsis sounded great and I loved the whole idea but just didn't cut it for me. I didn't feel a connection with the characters, there were quite a few jumps in the story where things weren't explained and it just seemed a bit meh. Other people might well love this one but it just wasn't for me.

    This is a wonderfully written story of transgender girl's journey to find love, acceptance, and home. When I heard this book was coming out, I was so excited (and impatient) to read it. I got it the minute I saw it went live and could not put it down. It had all the feels and some great laughs. I loved these characters. I want friends like these! And Callum? <3!MORE PLEASE! :)

    I received a free copy via Inked Rainbow in exchange for an honest review.I chose this book because I liked the premise and I love reading good stories about trans characters. I'm really torn on how I feel about this one.On the one hand, I really liked the characters. Lydia was sweet and funny, and I loved Callum. With the exception of Lydia's mother, I thought her family was great. There were a number of supporting characters I really liked as well.On the other hand, I found so many little thin [...]

    *4.5 stars. Warning: possible spoilers*When Lydia McIntosh is back home in small Prairie Town, North Carolina for her grandmother's funeral. The stipulation of the will: she has to stay in Prairie Town for a minimum of 6 months to "give it a chance" before leaving for good. Sounds easy, right? Sure, except that she left as Jonathan and returns as the transgender Lydia. Almost everyone is perfectly fine with it, except Lydia's mother. And then there's Lydia's crush, Callum who she still needs to [...]

    My Review as it appears on Avid Reader Amy's Reviews180 Days is one of those brave books that have to be written. It is a fictional story but the premise behind is very real. The author writes about the subject of transgender. This is something that is in the forefront of our society. It talks about the pain that comes from not being accepted and the emotions that arise from finding yourself. The character of Lydia has taken the steps needed to be who she is truly supposed to be. Her journey now [...]

    This book is on my 2015 reading challenge as part of books I don't normally read. I'm not into M/M and LGBT romance. Not because of anything but just because they are not for me specially when it tends to be too graphic. Reading 180 Days made me think that transromance are not so bad. I've read a couple of M/M before but this is my first time reading a trans novel. I can honestly say that I enjoyed the book as a whole. It's quite informative too when it comes to the trans process - physically an [...]

    This is a BEAUTIFUL story about a transgender girl, the main theme for the book is love, acceptance and forgiveness. I promise this is a book you are definitely going to fall in love with!!! It will make you laugh, it will make you cry, it will make you angry and most important of all it will make you LOVE. This story will rip your heart to pieces but it will definitely put it back together and I promise you by the end of the book your heart or you will not be the same. I truly feel with all my [...]

    180 Days by T.E. Ridener is honestly one of the best books of 2015. This story is about Lydia, a transgender female who has to move back home for six months. Lydia McIntosh is adjusting to life in her hometown and dealing with the rejection of loved ones and running into the ones who tormented her growing up. This story is beautifully written and should be read by everyone because it teaches about tolerance. 180 Days is the type of story that makes you stop and think of what transgendered people [...]

    We meet Lydia standing on the porch of her childhood home. Memories flash through her mind of what she left behind 14 years before. She has returned for her beloved Gran's funeral. Gran took the child away with her saying: "Come with me, baby. There's nothing for you in this town. A beautiful bird must never be caged. It's time for you to fly."We are quickly introduced to Harold, Lydia's father, as well as her sister Laney, brother Jebson and his best friend Callum. Mrs. McIntosh enters the room [...]

    Received a copy for an honest review i loved this book and the characters in it normally i don't read transgender books but thanks to T.E i am going to start reading more i think it is wonderful that she once again wrote about something that many consider taboo and although it was written like a fairy tale that is perfect and happy in almost every way i love how it reminds you that we are all the same inside we all share the same fears and doubts and that we can affect those around us with our a [...]

    I've not read a book about transgender before so this is new to me. It is a truly heart warming story. The author has given these characters life & it's wonderfully written with love & lots of emotions. It certainly hit all of my emotions. it's a beautiful story. I would love to meet them if they were real. I'm not going to go into it but for a romance story this is one you so need to read. It's funny & sad & it pulls you every which way. One thing I can say is everybody deserves [...]

    Bordered on excessively moralizing for most of the book, but didn't cross the line and the story was good enough to overlook it for the most part. It's an important topic for the author, but I think it could have been just as effective without spelling everything out and hammering their points repeatedly. There were a few instances where I think it would have been better to "show, not tell".Beyond that, there were lots of small town stereotypes and cliches, and the plot was pretty formulaic, but [...]

    I'm happy that this book wound up being my first romance with a transgender lead character in it. Through reading it, I was able to diversify my reading even more. And it's not just a box for me to check off. It was a way to expand my understanding and knowledge of the real world where such a variety of people live. Along with that, I was able to discover a series that might make it on my favorites list as I read more of the Prairie Town books.There was so much in this book that I loved. I could [...]

    This was another book I wanted to read but couldn't find the time. I'm so happy the book blogger group I'm a part of decided on this for our book of the month. I didn't even know what I was missing in my life until I picked it up. I'm not even exaggerating. My husband would walk around the corner to our living room and I would have to cover my face because I was ugly crying so hard. I've had a few books that made me cry, but I haven't had an ugly cry book in a LONG time. I'm talking, my husband [...]

    I picked this book up because I want to read more books with trans main characters and this is the first story I've read with a mtf heroine.What I liked • It's sweet, positive and enchanting.• The writing is confident and engaging.• Whilst the majority of characters accept Lydia as Lydia, she faces some prejudice from her mother. I don't 'like' this per se but I appreciate that the effort was made to portray it.• Agatha! Lydia's larger than life, gender fluid bestie is probably my favour [...]

    180 Days is the first novel in the Prairie Town series. It tells the story of Lydia, who only goes back home for her grandmother's funeral. There she reunited with her family - father, brother and sister with delight, but her mother is none too pleased to see her. Her mother's prejudice runs throughout the story. The love story between Callum and Lydia is warm and loving, with some steam but not too much. Their relationship is more than 'just' sex. The relationships that Lydia has with others is [...]

    I gave this author a chance, I never herd of this book before I read an article with it in it. I must say I am so happy I did. Be warned I had to put my kindle down to get the tissues! YES I cried. I must say as I was reading I could totally see this as a movie of Lifetime. This may be a fictional story but it feels so real reading it. And well it is not your typical love story. Lydia was an really good character. She feels like she could be your best friend. Reading you can't help but feel the [...]

    A gifted copy was given in exchange for an honest review.Another great story from this talented author.Lydia returns to her hometown after several years away from it. She knows she has her father and siblings’ support, but the one she always wanted to have is her mother’s. She can accept that her son is now her daughter and that hurts Lydia a lot. She doesn’t understand how her father loves her unconditionally, and her mother is unable to do it.Lydia is also afraid of not finding someone t [...]

    I enjoy reading books with good plots, but I love reading books with amazing characters. Those are the books that I visit again and again, the ones that present characters as well-rounded people with flaws and fears as well as strengths. Ridener delivers a book with a good plot, but more importantly, she's created characters with whom I can identify, even if I've never gone through the same circumstances. What could have been a book full of political rhetoric is instead the touching, and sometim [...]

    This book was recommended through a book blog, and I wish I could remember which one, because I'd drop them a note of thanks. 180 Days was a terrific book. Lots of character building, as well as people of character. The story revolves around transgender issues, so it won't be for everyone-- which is a shame, as Callum is the perfect example of the acceptance and tolerance we should show to everyone, regardless of skin color, race, and a host of other biases besides sexual identity.

    Wonderfully well doneI have readable of this authors books, but I've come to find that the ones I've reasserted her earlier books. She has grown leaps and bounds as a writer and tackles the hard issues with such grace and aplomb. I can't wait to read the sequel and for this series. I highly recommend it to anyone even remotely curious about the LGBTQ umbrella. It is an eye opener and powerfully put together. Thank you for this gem.
