Please keep giving me all the f/f romances 💕

Hi, and howdy. Welcome to my blog 🤠😊

I took my mum for her Covid Vaccine today and I have never been so jealous watching a person be stabbed in the arm before. I want it!

Besides from being jealous, today I come to you to talk about some F/F romances I’ve added to my TBR recently and am super hyped for!

We’ve come leaps and bounds when it comes to LGBTQ+ fiction but I feel like sometimes f/f stories are overshadowed by popular m/m books. I in no way want to take away from the importance of those stories, I just want to show a little love to the Sapphic books too, which I’m happy to see are slowly becoming just as hyped!!


The Lost Girls by Sonia Hartl

After the vampire craze of the early 2010’s which left us all burnt out and fed up with books and shows about blood-suckers, I’m happy to say I’m back on board. This is evident by the fact that I read the entire Vampire Academy series last month and can be found scrolling the Twilight Renaisance tag in the early hours of the morning.

What I’m really loving at the minute though is fresh and fun takes on vampire stories and The Lost Girls seems like it’s going to be just that.

Right from the bat we have the tag line of “it’s John Tucker Must Die with a feminist girl gang of vampires” which has me hooked. I’m getting really good vibes from this book already, and I’m excited to read it a soon as!

ARC Review: Yesterday is History by Kosoko Jackson

*ARC courtesy of NetGalley*

Publication Date: February 2nd 2021


Weeks ago, Andre Cobb received a much-needed liver transplant.

He’s ready for his life to finally begin, until one night, when he passes out and wakes up somewhere totally unexpected…in 1969, where he connects with a magnetic boy named Michael.

And then, just as suddenly as he arrived, he slips back to present-day Boston, where the family of his donor is waiting to explain that his new liver came with a side effect—the ability to time travel. And they’ve tasked their youngest son, Blake, with teaching Andre how to use his unexpected new gift. Read More.

Saoirse doesn’t believe in love at first sight or happy endings. If they were real, her mother would still be able to remember her name and not in a care home with early onset dementia. A condition that Saoirse may one day turn out to have inherited. So she’s not looking for a relationship. She doesn’t see the point in igniting any romantic sparks if she’s bound to burn out.

But after a chance encounter at an end-of-term house party, Saoirse is about to break her own rules. For a girl with one blue freckle, an irresistible sense of mischief, and a passion for rom-coms. Read More.

July Wrap Up!

Howdy and happy August!!

This is usually the part where I say “omg how is it August already?” or “wow time sure does fly when the world is on fireee” but I don’t have time for that because I read fifteen books in July! Fifteen!!!! I have never read this many books in one month in my life.

wowza

I’m shocked, shooketh and downright gobsmacked. 

I was truly on a roll this month when it came to reading and I loved it but now it’s time to wrap all these bad boys up!black-and-white-flowers-tumblr-transparent-12 Continue reading “July Wrap Up!”

I exceeded my own expectations! // Reading Rush Wrap Up

Hellooo and welcome to my blog.

After a week of nonstop reading, the Reading Rush has ended and not to toot my own thorn or anything but I did great.RR-full-deeplilac

In the last week I have completed 5 book and a sum total of 1779 pages. I’m pretty impressed with that. *pats self on back*.


Monday

I normally start Readathon’s bang on midnight and that was my original plan but instead I finished work and started drinking pints. I didn’t get in till 2am so reading even just a chapter was out the window. So was reading when I woke up like I wanted because I’m gonna admit I was slightly hungover and decided to sleep another hour.

Later that day though I did ended up completing Darkling by Brooklyn Ray for the challenge: Read the first book you touch.darkling

This might be cheating, I don’t know, but I had hoped to read and finish this before the Reading Rush even began but that didn’t happen. I’d only read the first chapter before Monday so I decided this could fill the prompt of “first book you touch” as it technically was the first e-book I clicked on that day.

I was in a reading mood on Monday because I also started The Fixer by Jennifer Lynn Barnes and read 201 pages. I considered just finishing this in it’s entirety because I could not put it down but it was late, I was really tired and I was also loving it so much that I kind of wanted to stretch it out another day.

Pages Read: 350 (ish)

June Wrap Up

We’ve made it through another month people. Round of applause for us👏. I feel like we should all get a prize at the end of every month this year. A participation trophy at the very least. We deserve it.

Truthfully. I don’t remember much of what happened this month. Before checking my Goodreads and my handy-dandy notebook I didn’t think I’d read that much this month but I’ve actually read 7 books and 1 little novella.

At first I was like “oh is that it?” because the past couple of months I’ve been reaching that 10 book a month goal so 7 seems like a let down but no. 7 books is great. Me from a couple of months ago would be thrilled with 7 books in one month and the final month of school no less!

5 LGBT+ books on my TBR that I really want to read.

Hey :))) I’m a bit late today. I’ve been procrastinating. Clearly my plans for a productive summer are going well.

Today I am going to be talking about 5 lgbt+ books that I currently have on my TBR. Hopefully this time next year I’ll be recommending these books instead of just telling myself I’ll to get them eventually.

I’ve kept this list down to just the books I own in some format or other because if not then this list would be incredibly long and nobody has time for that.

The LGBTQ+ Rep Book Tag

Hellooo :)) I have had a traumatic night 😂. So I went out earlier with a friend to walk his dog and we were chatting, minding our own business when a seagull swoops down and tries to get a cat on the opposite side of the road. Ten seconds later this same seagull flies back around and dives at us!!! We ducked. We screamed. I am scarred.

Apparently this isn’t the first “seagulls gone wild” incident either and, according to my friend, police were called earlier today because seagulls were just diving at people.

So yeah … I am never leaving my house again. The seagulls are rising up.

Anyways, focusing on something not bird related, I am here today with a tag created by the amazing Virginia @ The Sassy Library in celebration of it being pride month. Thank you so much for the tag! If you go over to her post she has really cute graphics to go with the questions.
