An Interview with Lisa Williamson

I’ve been a fan of Lisa for quite some time now. The author of the stunning The Art Of Being Normal and All About Mia, Lisa has now joined the seven authors involved in Floored (I’m apart of the blog tour for the promotion of this book, i can guarantee it will be incredible!) Lisa champions diversity and LGBTQ+ in all her work, and us being a very LGBTQ+ focused blog and having the LGBTQ+ Book Club, i figured who better to ask some questions about writing than Lisa.

Is Reading A Competition?

I have been thinking a lot about this sentiment for a little while now. I’ve been a little overwhelmed with life in general (social media, a lot of things happening in my personal life etc) for some time, and it comes with the territory that reading is becoming a little overwhelming for me.

Bookish Happiness

A few months ago i started a little series entitled ‘Bookish Happiness’. This is where i talked about all the things in the past few weeks/month that made me particularly happy that were book related. I really loved doing the first one and showcasing all the positivity that is happening around the book community at the moment. Here is the next installment of all the bookish things that have made me very happy recently.

Book Club Night 4 – Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe

BOOWe chose to read Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe (AADDTSOTU) by Benjamin Alire Sáenz for our fourth LGBTQ+ book club read. Both me and Sarah love this book and (I’ll be honest) with YALC coming up we wanted a familiar one to read so it was easier for our massive TBR piles. Also, many of the people who attend hadn’t read it and since it is one of my all time favourite books, I wanted to spread the brilliance of it. Sarah couldn’t make this month’s meet up as she was away with her partner so I led this one solo which I was kind of nervous about and missed Sarah a lot but it went really well!  Continue reading

Reading Before YALC

chatI know Sarah has posted/tweeted a fair bit about YALC and the books she is reading in preparation but I haven’t really gotten as involved. I’ve been having a break from social media lately and I’ve barely been using it (my replies are shockingly late and I’m sorry!) so I haven’t really posted my YALC TBR or anything much to do with it. I have however been reading a lot to try and get the ones I’m most excited about read. Continue reading

The Taste Of Blue Light by Lydia Ruffles

The Taste of Blue Light was recommended to me by so many people it was hard not to pick it up. When Lydia got announced for YALC i knew that i should probably start this book sooner rather than later, and i’m really glad i didn’t leave it sitting on my TBR pile for long.

Eve Of Man by Giovanna & Tom Fletcher

*A big thanks to a pal Kimi for letting me read her advanced copy of this book!*

For any of you who are new around here, i absolutely adore the entire Fletcher family. Every single one of them. Having read every book that Tom and Giovanna have released separately now, i thought that Eve Of Man would be my absolute dream book. I wish i hadn’t have found it so ‘meh’.
