And we are onto part 3 of this series which will be longer when the other books on my TBR finally get a cover so stay tuned! But for now, I have another 20 books featuring LGBTQ+ characters released in 2020. I am still on the lookout for more and if you know of any, drop a comment below! Last thing is my usual disclaimer saying that these books obviously haven’t been released yet so if I have added any incorrect information, then please let me know! Anyway, enjoy… Continue reading “2020 LGBTQ+ RELEASES PART III”

2020 LGBTQ+ RELEASES PART II

So. The first part of this did really well and as well as being thankful for all the support, it also makes me so happy seeing all the excitement for books featuring diverse characters. Not only that but the fact that I can write a second part to this post (and perhaps a third) just goes to show how much more diverse books are becoming. There was a time where you would struggle to find books featuring characters with different identities and sexualities. Now look! Of course there’s still a way to go but I’m so happy we’re on the right track. For now, here are another twenty books being released in 2020 featuring LGBTQ+ characters in order of release!  Continue reading “2020 LGBTQ+ RELEASES PART II”

2020 LGBTQ+ Releases Part I

If there’s one thing already making me excited for 2020, it’s all the incredible looking/sounding books featuring LGBTQ+ characters. I am apologising in advance to my bank account and TBR pile but I am willing to suffer. As all of these books (obviously) aren’t released yet and only a few lucky people have received early copies, I can’t say all of my information in terms of representation is 100% and of course I will edit as more information comes out. However, from the research I have done, these are 20 books released next year featuring LGBTQ+ characters. (In order of release!) Continue reading “2020 LGBTQ+ Releases Part I”

Girls of Storm and Shadow by Natasha Ngan: Blog Tour

Girls of Storm and Shadow by Natasha Ngan: Blog Tour

Lei, the naive country girl who became a royal courtesan, is now known as the Moonchosen, the commoner who managed to do what no one else could. But slaying the cruel Demon King wasn’t the end of the plan—it’s just the beginning. Now Lei and her warrior love Wren must travel the kingdom to gain support from the far-flung rebel clans. The journey is made even more treacherous thanks to a heavy bounty on Lei’s head, as well as insidious doubts that threaten to tear Lei and Wren apart from within.

Meanwhile, an evil plot to eliminate the rebel uprising is taking shape, fueled by dark magic and vengeance. Will Lei succeed in her quest to overthrow the monarchy and protect her love for Wren, or will she fall victim to the sinister magic that seeks to destroy her?

Thanks to Hodderscape for sending me a proof copy of Girls of Storm and Shadow as part of the blog tour! This review will be spoiler free for Girls of Storm and Shadow, but may contain slight spoilers for Girls of Paper and Fire.

Top 5 Thursday // Found Family Trope

Untitled_Panorama1.jpg

So. It’s 1am and I have been staring at my ceiling for the past twenty minutes trying to think of some blog posts I can write in November. I have just finished a reread of a favourite series of mine (will be mentioned below) and I thought to myself. Hey, you know what I love in books? The found family trope. And that is how this post began and hopefully, it will become a thing most Thursdays with different topics/tropes etc. So without further ado, here are some of my favourite books with the found family trope.

When we talk about found family, we mean people who are not blood family, but who a person forges deep and meaningful bonds with based on things like shared values, mutual care and support, understanding, unconditional love, and positive regard.
