*I was kindly gifted a copy of this book by the publisher.
This is one of the middle-grade books i’ve had my eye on for quite some time. I remember back in Feburary almost picking this up in a train station book shop (remember those things?!) and then immediately regretting not doing. It slipped out from my mind for a while until we announced our Crime readthon, hosted with Lois, and the lovely Charlie at Little Tiger offered to send us a copy to review.Continue reading “Agent Zaiba Investigates The Missing Diamonds by Annabelle Sami”
I don’t think i’ve ever done a mini review post before, bringing together some smaller reviews from books i’ve read recently.

The fetishisation of MLM (men loving men) has long been an issue – particularly in fandoms – and there has been a lot of discourse around this and the inappropriate sexualisation of teenagers in the YA and bookish community recently. This is a huge topic, and way more than we could ever cover in one post, but it’s something that must continue to be discussed. Content warning: fetishisation, hypersexualisation, homophobia.Continue reading “The Issue of Fetishising Queer Characters in YA”
Today’s post is a little different but I am very excited about it! We here at The Little Contemporary Corner have partnered with Women X – created by Rianne Pictures with the aim of uplifting women and non-binary filmmakers. I work at Rianne Pictures, which is a volunteer and women led production company – I’ve been there for over three years now, I absolutely love it and I’m super glad my two worlds of films and books have collided!
