Can you believe it is that time of the year already? I’ve seen this tag floating around again recently and I had to double check the calendar to make sure I was seeing it right. I haven’t had the most successful book year but I thought I’d grab Becky so we can take part in the annual Mid Year Freak Out book tag for you!

This was a series I was planning on starting later on in the year but due to recent events, I’ve boosted it up to now. Despite making it my mission to read more diversely this year, I have still fallen short on reading too many books by Black authors but I am determined for that to change. Below I have chosen some books by Black authors that I have read and loved and also some that I want to read fairly soon. This series will become a regular feature on the blog and I hope you all make it your mission also to read and support these authors.

So my recent and newfound love has been the Wayward Children series by Seanan McGuire. These books have been on my radar for a while but I’ve always wanted them in hardback form (I mean, have you seen the covers?!) and thanks to some lovely human beans, I have been able to finally start the series. I was toying with how to review these but eventually decided on writing mini-reviews for each book in the series thus far (my thoughts rather than a synopsis) so without further ado, here are some of my thoughts!

So with Pride fast approaching, I have been wracking my brain on how I can celebrate the month and I thought what better than to find even more of an excuse to read some diverse books. I asked around on Twitter if other people would like me to post this so they can maybe take part so I’ll let you know the way I’m planning the readathon! Continue reading “Pride Readathon 2020”
Although we are pretty much halfway through May now, I still wanted to shout about some of my most anticipated releases for this month. A lot of books that were originally on this list have now been pushed back but hopefully all the dates for these are still correct! I hope you’re all keeping safe and without further ado, here are my May 2020 anticipated YA releases. As always, make sure to check out my separate series with 100+ 2020 releases with LGBTQ+ characters here! Continue reading “MOST ANTICIPATED May 2020 YA RELEASES”
So during the end of March and throughout April, I went through a bit of a reading slump which ultimately meant a blog slump so I missed the April edition of this series. I thought about maybe skipping over it but then remembered, there were still releases I was excited for and still want to feature so here we go! Remember I have a separate series featuring 2020 releases with LGBTQ+ characters, so check it out here so I don’t repeat books!

Due to Animal Crossing coming out and the whole pandemic thing, I have not been in the mood for reading and for once, I didn’t feel too guilty about it. However, as I was sat out in my garden in the sunshine the other day twiddling my thumbs, I thought I’d pick up a book and another three closely followed. Here are some mini reviews of the books in question! Continue reading “Mini Reviews // End of Book Slump Edition”
So as you may or may not know, Becky and I have fallen into the Animal Crossing New Horizons hole like many many people in the world. Because of that our reading has taken a bit of a back seat so what better way to combine our two loves than by creating a little tag you can all join in on! If you do want to take part, please tag us in the post or on Twitter etc so we can see your answers too! Continue reading “Animal Crossing New Horizons Book Tag // Original”
First and foremost, I’m going to apologise for my absence from the blog lately. With everything going on in the world, I wasn’t in the right mind space to produce posts I was proud of and that readers would enjoy. However, if there is one thing we can do now, it’s reading, especially some diverse books and authors. This series has got so much love and support and I am still astonished that I can now give you a seventh part! As always, these are in order of release (some already released of course), are all standalones or start-of-series and if I have got any information incorrect, please let me know in the comments! But most importantly, I hope you find a new favourite and stay safe. Continue reading “2020 LGBTQ+ RELEASES PART VII”
So it is that time of the year again – a day dedicated to all the women in our lives, past, present and future. I always like to do something on the blog to celebrate so Becky and I thought we’d talk about some of our favourite female authors! We have decided to pick four each (a lot harder than it sounds) and share the reason why they, and their work, has impacted us so much.
