David Levithan…not a book goes by when i do not love your writing more and more. One of my favourite authors, i cannot help put pick up absolutely everything that David has published. More so, when he co-authors. I admittedly have never read a Jennifer Niven, and i think Take Me With You When You Go has pursuaded me to pick up her previous books.
We’re back again with a round up of our latest LGBTQ+ Book Club! For our February book, we decided to read the YA verse novel, The Black Flamingo by Dean Atta. This was a really popularly liked book by everyone who attended. Read on to find out our thoughts as well as what we are reading for our March book club – anyone is welcome to join!
Our LGBTQ+ Book Club is back and raring to go! We hadn’t stopped but we had a period where we intermittently did them rather than once a month. However, we have planned and organised and we are ready and very excited to be back in the swing of things. Last month we read Carol by Patricia Highsmith – keep reading to find out what we spoke about as well as what we are reading for our February meeting! Anyone is welcome to join us.
I’ve been in a mega reading slump over the last couple of months that I’m only just coming out of. It’s been very hard to kick and I find it really difficult to get back into reading, and also blogging, when this happens. I’m here to share a few ideas though on how to get out of one!
I know, I know. It’s the 28th January. We are almost a whole month into 2021. This is late. But hear me out – time is a social construct so yes I am posting a New Year Book Tag when it’s almost February and you can’t stop me! Just wait til I post my 2020 stats in a couple of weeks (not even joking…). I saw this on my pal Lois’ blog and really wanted to do it!
For the past couple of years, I’ve made reading resolutions in January about the kinds of books I want to read that year. It’s included things like finish a specific series, read more non-fiction, and finally finish Anna Karenina (which I actually did do last year!). 2021 is different however and I wanted to write about my slightly different approach to reading this year…
Ourselves and the lovely Lois of LoisReadsBooks announced a readathon we set up which begins this month, from the 25th October until 8th November 2020. It’s a Crime Readathon as we want to expand our reading of the crime genre and it’s various subgenres. We have created a little spreadsheet of some recommendations and suggestions where you could find some books for your readathon TBR!
