LGBTQ+ Book Club Update – Two Boys Kissing by David Levithan

LGBTQ+ Book Club HeaderOur LGBTQ+ book club has been running for quite some time now, and we’re on our fourth book of the club! We’re all so happy with how well received all these books have been and how many people are getting involved. More so, me and Sophie have been managing to read the same books every month, which never happens and was the ultimate goal of this whole book club.

BEDM: Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist by David Levithan and Rachel Cohn – Review

Book Review Header

I don’t know why it took me so long to read Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist because it’s been one of my favourite movies for a long time, and David Levithan is one of my favourite authors. Everything about it screamed ‘read me now,’ however it’s been sat on my shelf for a few years. I picked it up on whim, figuring i could use a refresher of the story i love so much.

April 2017 Wrap-Up

Wrap Up Header

I seem to keep having very sporadic reading months. Some months have been great this year, my January was outstanding, and some not so good. I’ve dipped again a little in April due to a lot of things going on, and have only read a few of the books i was aiming for. All in all it wasn’t an awful month, but i definitely am hoping it gets a little better. Here’s what i read in April and what i thought…

Dash and Lily’s Book Of Dares by David Levithan & Rachel Cohn

Book Review Header

I grabbed a copy of Dash And Lily a few years back to add to my ever growing collection of David Levithan. It never really appealed to me until i saw the release of the Christmas sequel this year, realising i should probably get it read (considering i picked up the Christmas version). It pleasantly surprised me.

Christmas Read-Along Update 2

Readalong Header

I hope the readalong is going really well for everyone! We are now halfway through and today is number 7 of 12 stories! You can still join, we are halfway through which just means if you read two short stories a day you can catch up in no time. Or you can read them out of order (the joy of books of short stories!) Sarah gave her thoughts on the first two stories a few days ago and I will briefly review what I think of stories 3 to 6! Continue reading “Christmas Read-Along Update 2”

Authors I’m Excited For At YALC

YALC Header

YALC is approaching quickly and that means our excitement is building by the day. We are looking forward to meeting so many incredible authors and finding out more about how they write and the fantastic books that are on our shelves at home. There are a whole host of great authors going to YALC this year (and we’re a little in awe about how many we actually get to be in the same room as at once), so many of them we cannot wait to hear talk. Here’s a list of the authors that we are most excited about seeing.

The Most Realistic LGBTQ+ Books (Happy Pride!)

LGBTQ+ Header

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.
