I finally got round to reading Queenie and I truly loved it. I got through it pretty quickly as I found it to be such a page turner. I’ve been meaning to read it for so long and it truly did not disappoint. If you want to hear some of my thoughts on the book, check it out below. There will be some spoilers in this review!
We wanted to write a post highlighting some books by Black authors that both/one of us have read, ones that we own and want to read, and ones we are currently reading. It’s so important to support Black creators not just now but always. Both Sarah and I want to do better and are taking meaningful action to do so. At the start of this list we have linked some articles and blog posts by Black people recommending books by Black authors as well as some lists of films to watch to educate yourself. We will also share in this list some resources for the Black Lives Matter movement, including links to donations and petitions, educational resources and info for protestors. We stand in complete solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement and we vow to do better to help the Black community in any way we can.

We have all had to learn to adapt many aspects of our lives, some more than others. Though my life hasn’t changed too drastically, I have struggled a little more recently with self care and just generally spending time to myself. Logically, it seems this would be easier since I can’t go out and see people, however I have found it harder. It helps to get my thoughts down in words often so here’s a little chat about how I have changed and adapted my self care routines. Continue reading “How my Self Care Routines have Changed”
The two of us at The Little Contemporary Corner have recently watched a BBC Two series called Trigonometry and we absolutely adore it. It’s a fantastic show focusing on three people who develop a deep connection and fall in love with each other, depicting a positive and diverse representation of polyamory. We don’t normally write about TV shows but we both love it so much we had to write about it! Continue reading “Trigonometry BBC Two Review”
