We read Heartstopper: Volume Two for our August LGBTQ+ Book Club read and I absolutely adored it! I’ve not actually written my own review of either volume and I figured I should because I will shout from the rooftops about how pure and cute and wholesome they are! Continue reading
The wonderful Layla at Readable Life created a tag all about Alice Oseman. She’s named it OsemanVerse and honestly as soon as i found out that this was happening i jumped on the chance to be tagged in it. So i want to say a huge thank you to Layla who tagged us in the first post of The OsemanVerse.
Last Thursday we met up for our monthly LGBTQ+ Book Club gathering! In July, we read Heartstopper: Volume One by Alice Oseman and had such a great response we decided to carry on with Volume Two.

People who made it and people who couldn’t but wanted to share their thoughts joined the conversation on our Google form too.

You may have noticed that we had a read-along running across our social medias between the 11th and the 22nd of March. This was all in aid of celebrating the wonderful release of Proud, a new LGBTQ+ anthology from Stripes, which was curated by Juno Dawson and includes a whole host of great YA authors and some wonderful illustrators.
