LGBTQ+ Book Club – Heartstopper: Volume Two

LGBTQ+ Book Club HeaderLast Thursday we met up for our monthly LGBTQ+ Book Club gathering! In July, we read Heartstopper: Volume One by Alice Oseman and had such a great response we decided to carry on with Volume Two. She created these graphic novels based off her webcomics which are available for free online. We will be mainly focusing on thoughts on Volume Two but some Volume One comments will be in this post too – it can be hard to separate for those who read it online and more people could attend Book Club this month so it was really nice to talk about both! People who made it and people who couldn’t but wanted to share their thoughts joined the conversation on our Google form too.

LGBTQ+ Book Club – The Perks of Being a Wallflower

LGBTQ+ Book Club HeaderThis month we read The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky. It’s one of mine and Sarah’s favourite books and I feel like a lot of our friendship has ties to it. We have both read it more than once before we chose it for Book Club but had never read it to focus on the aspects of sexuality specifically.

LGBTQ+ Book Club – Girls of Paper and Fire

LGBTQ+ Book Club HeaderHello all! In case you didn’t hear, this month’s book club read was Girls of Paper and Fire by Natasha Ngan.
