Hogwarts House Recs: Slytherin – Blogtober

I wanted to start this as a series ages ago and have had the ideas drafted for months but I never got round to it or was feeling it. Now however, I’ve had a resurgence of passion for it. I often associate books or songs with Hogwarts houses – it’s a fairly common thing to do. There’s sometimes just a vibe in a book’s style or theme, a character with specific house traits or just the feeling you get when reading it that makes me sometimes instantly associate a book with a house.

A-Z Book Tag – Blogtober

tags

I love doing a tag and I haven’t done one in a good while. I saw Lois from LoisReadsBooks post this one a few months ago and have been meaning to do it ever since. It’s a bit of a longer one but it was a lot of fun (especially since I love making lists and that’s what this felt like!). If you fancy doing this book tag yourself, go for it! Continue reading

World Mental Health Day – Blogtober

chatToday is Mental Health Awareness Day which you have probably seen a bit about online – I think it’s really picked up profile in the past couple of years which is amazing!

Of course, this is going to be a bit subjective and some may disagree but these are books which resonated with me in some way.

Heartstopper Review – Blogtober

32327972682_0c6dc7959d_bWe 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

Raindance Film Festival: Queer Love Stories – Blogtober

Slightly different post here but I sat in on an industry talk at Raindance Film Festival called Queer Love Stories on Screen and it was really interesting and adaptations came up a few times so this isn’t just a purely film based post for those who aren’t interested in my passionate love for films! Continue reading

LGBTQ+ Book Club – Summer Bird Blue – Blogtober

image1

A little later than usual but here is our Book Club update post! Over September, we read Summer Bird Blue by Akemi Dawn Bowman, an author me and Sarah both love the work of. It’s probably the saddest book we will have read to date (though not in terms of the sexuality representation!) which we did warn everyone about prior to starting it. It’s also the first book we have read with asexual and aromantic representation, something which we will of course be reading more of within coming months.  Continue reading
