Love, Simon – Film Chat

I feel like i’m the last person to have seen this movie. Every blogger i know and friend i have has already been to an early screening of Love, Simon – and to be honest, i have been gutted that i’ve had to wait so long.

Simon vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda Book and Film Chat

adaptation29473246_1700014890046096_7895038312623112192_o.jpgI’ve heard about this book by Becky Albertelli for a long, long time and I always meant to pick it up. I finally did buy it in February (mainly because the film was approaching and I needed to get a read on before I saw it!). My girlfriend managed to get us free tickets to an early screening of the adaptation, Love, Simon, at the Vue cinema in Manchester so I was able to see it on the 19th February! I sped read the book the weekend before and had only a few pages left before I sat down ready for the movie. I just want to have a little chat about the book and the film and what I thought about them!  Continue reading

It’s Top 5 Wednesday day again! I don’t know where the weeks go because i’m always shocked when it’s time to put up my Wednesday post again! Well this weeks topic is top t non-canon ships. For those of you that don’t spend all your time on the internet, this means the couples that you ‘ship’ that are not actually together in the book. So it could be the main character and their best friend, instead of the main character and their boyfriend/girlfriend. You could even let your heart run wild and ship people from two different worlds or series. I usually stick to what’s written with the pairings that i like in novels, so i’ve had to rack my brains for this one!

As it is the last day in June, we are celebrating the fact that June has been pride month! This means there are plenty of celebrations for the LGBTQ+ community and everyone around them to show that they are proud of who they are. Being a part of the LGBTQ+ community is important to us on the blog, not just because some of our creators are themselves LGBT, but because it is generally such an accepting and loving group of people to be apart of, we think everyone should have that mind set.
