I fell in love with Dean Atta’s work when he released a poem called How To Be Gay in the Proud anthology by Stripes. I found it to be the story that i connected with the most in the anthology and the way it was written was right up my street. When i found out that Dean would be releasing a verse novel called The Black Flamingo, i jumped at the chance to get hold of the book ASAP.

Myself and my very good best pal Charlotte from Wonderfully Bookish found ourselves co-reading Toffee by Sarah Crossan recently. We love a blog hop so decided to review it for each other! That means you can head over to her blog to read my review of Toffee! We really want to make more of an effort with co-blogging, because it’s a lot of fun to take over someone else’s page for a little while, let us know if you like it or have any ideas. Make sure to keep reading for Charlotte’s review!

I’m a huge fan of Juno’s work, and she’s an author that i think i will constantly support for a very very long time to come. Not only is she an incredible woman, her books are ridiculously well written and funny. So all that being said, i had high hopes for Meat Market.

I did a lot of travelling and working in May, which means i assumed my reading month would be pretty poor. Considering how busy i was, my reading month was quite average. It was also my first full reading month of my YALC TBR after our announcements for YALC authors in April. I have my semi-strict YALC TBR set until YALC weekend (YALC YALC YALC) which is slowly going down book by book.

*The book discussed in this post was gifted from the publisher*

As we have an LGBTQ+ Book Club, we’re always looking for more LGBTQ+ reads, especially from own voices authors.

I had to get my hands on Birthday at some point to see how it compared, and to read something else from this wonderful own voices author.
