Summer Break

I can’t believe the summer is almost over here in the northern hemisphere. I’m actually a bit giddy with excitement over it. I very much do not like summer, and I’m so ready for autumn to arrive. Plus, the cooler weather means it’s getting closer to when I’m traveling out to California to meet one…

More Men MCs in Fantasy

Disclaimer: I’m mostly talking about YA here. I can probably count on one hand how many adult fantasies I’ve read in the last decade, although none of those few had men for their MCs, either. I truly don’t think that if I had to put together a top ten fantasy books that feature men MCs,…

The Great TBR Challenge

Okay, here’s the deal. At the end of May, I talked about why I occasionally do book buying bans and how they’re actually really helpful for me. At the beginning of this year, I threw away my handwritten TBR list that was organized chronologically by when I’d bought something. It was bringing me a lot…

Queer Books I Want to Read

I recognize that this may kind of feel like a cop-out or a TTT that’s hiding beneath a Wednesday discussion, but there was only so much salt that I could serve this month without exhausting myself, and I thought it might be nice to just take a step back and talk about the queer books…

HAPPY PRIDE!

Happy 2021 Pride! I am so hyped to be alive and thriving for another Pride, and I cannot wait to bring you the queerest month on the blog yet! Last year was pretty amazing, not gonna lie, but I didn’t really make the whole month about Pride. I did a few posts: Favorite LGBTQIAP+ Books…

Weekend Readathon

Wow, I truly cannot remember the last time that I did one of these posts. Like, at minimum, 2019. I used to do weekend readathons all the damn time. They were a lot of fun, and while last year should have been a good time for it, I worked from home a lot, so I…

Pride TBR

Look, did I start drafting this at the end of January? DON’T EVEN LOOK AT ME. We also started watching movies for Pride in February, it’s whatever. 2021 is going to be hella gay, fellas. What happened was that I decided to stay up really late one night deciding on my Pride TBR pretty much…
