LGBTQ+ Book Club Header

You may have noticed that we had a read-along running across our social medias between the 11th and the 22nd of March. This was all in aid of celebrating the wonderful release of Proud, a new LGBTQ+ anthology from Stripes, which was curated by Juno Dawson and includes a whole host of great YA authors and some wonderful illustrators.

Reading Dates

Chat Header

I really love reading, and i really love dates. Very rarely do these things overlap, for a start it’s finding the right person that’s willing, on a date, to sit in silence and read. I’ve always been interested in how two people can sit together in an unawkward silence whilst getting some productive reading done. Well, it’s finally happened.

Two Boys Kissing by David Levithan – Review

Book Review Header

Our LGBTQ+ book club pick of the month has been David Levithan’s Two Boys Kissing, a novel in which i picked up a number of years ago and couldn’t really get my head around enough to be invested in reading it. I knew choosing it as a book club pick meant that i’d have to read it, which was great for my progress in reading everything David Levithan has ever written.

We Are Okay by Nina LaCour Review (Sophie)

I know Sarah has reviewed We Are Okay already (stick with me) but the point of our LGBTQ+ Book Club is for us both to review the book separately! Sarah reviewed it about a month ago so it has probably been a nice break for everyone to now read another take on it. Nina LaCour’s latest release was our first choice because we both love her past books and honestly we couldn’t bear to leave We Are Okay waiting for months on our bookshelves! On with the details and review…

We Are Okay by Nina LaCour

Book Review Header

As some of you may know, book club started a few weeks ago. The first book that we decided to share with everyone is We Are Okay by Nina LaCour. Both me and Sophie have enjoyed LaCour’s previous works, and could not wait to get around to reading her latest release…meaning it’s book club pick of the month! As an added book club bonus, it made sense that we both wrote reviews of the books we are reading, giving each of our views on the same book. Considering book clubs are about talking about books, why not? I finished We Are Okay before Sophie so my review will come first. I hope you’re enjoying book club and enjoying the first read!
