So because I’m a mad woman, I’ve decided to start another series where I choose my top nine anticipated novels for each month. To make it easier for myself, I’ve chosen YA only and I’ve not included books I’ve mentioned in my 2020 LGBTQ+ Releases series. So without further ado, here are my most anticipated and I hope they’re all amazing as they sound! Continue reading “Most Anticipated January 2020 YA Releases”
In a shocking turn of events, I am already able to compile a list of another 20 books released in 2020 with LGBTQ+ characters! I didn’t expect to be able to find another bunch in such a short amount of time but authors and publishers are pulling it out of the bag for the new year. A huge thank you to @hrngrystrs over on Twitter for letting me know of a few more books to add! This list has a nice mixture of middle-grade, graphic novels, anthologies, YA and adult so something for everyone! Continue reading “2020 LGBTQ+ RELEASES PART IV”
Before we begin, the Two Book Thieves are now the Two and a Half Book Thieves as my wonderful co-blogger, Becky welcomed little Maisie into the world! (x) So whilst Becky is enjoying her mini-me, I’ve decided to write up a little post featuring some books with the wintery, Christmassey vibes. This was actually harder than expected however, I hope you find something you like the look of! Continue reading “9 Books For the Winter/Christmas Season”
At the end of one world, there always lies another.
Safire, a soldier, knows her role in this world is to serve the King of Firgaard-helping to maintain the peace in her oft-troubled nation.
Eris, a deadly pirate, has no such conviction. Known as The Death Dancer for her ability to evade even the most determined of pursuers, she possesses a superhuman ability to move between worlds.
When one can roam from dimension to dimension, can one ever be home? Can love and loyalty truly exist?
Then Safire and Eris – sworn enemies – find themselves on a common mission: to find Asha, the last Namsara.
From the port city of Darmoor to the fabled faraway Sky Isles, their search and their stories become threaded ever more tightly together as they discover the uncertain fate they’re hurtling towards may just be a shared one. In this world, and the next.
Thanks to Gollancz for sending me an early copy of The Sky Weaver as part of the blog tour!

If there’s one post I always enjoy doing, it’s book tags and I thought it was the perfect time to do the End of the Year Book Tag. I’m not sure who the original creator of this tag is so please let me know if you know! I’ve also tagged some other bloggers I nominate to take part. Continue reading “End of the Year Book Tag // 2019”
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”
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”
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”
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?

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.
