Authors Recommend Their Favourite LGBTQIA+ Reads | Part I – Diana Pinguicha


As I was writing up my LGBTQIA+ release series, I found myself wondering what inspiration was behind these books and if the authors of our favourites could recommend any other books, what would they be? So, I went ahead and contacted some authors and I was lucky enough to hear back from them. First off, we have Diana Pinguicha who is the author of A Curse of Roses, a Portuguese historical fantasy that will be released in December of this year! As this book features a f/f romance, I asked Diana to recommend some of her favourite books also featuring an sapphic romance and some reasons why. So without further ado, here are Diana’s recommendations –

All the Stars and Teeth by Adalyn Grace // Spoiler-free Review

Thank you to Titan Books for sending me a copy in exchange for an honest review.


As princess of the island kingdom Visidia, Amora Montara has spent her entire life training to be High Animancer – the master of souls. The rest of the realm can choose their magic, but for Amora, it’s never been a choice. To secure her place as heir to the throne, she must prove her mastery of the monarchy’s dangerous soul magic.
When her demonstration goes awry, Amora is forced to flee. She strikes a deal with Bastian, a mysterious pirate: he’ll help her prove she’s fit to rule, if she’ll help him reclaim his stolen magic.
But sailing the kingdom holds more wonder – and more peril – than Amora anticipated. A destructive new magic is on the rise, and if Amora is to conquer it, she’ll need to face legendary monsters, cross paths with vengeful mermaids, and deal with a stow-away she never expected… or risk the fate of Visidia and lose the crown forever.

Feathertide by Beth Cartwright // Spoiler-free Review

Untitled_Panorama1

Thank you to Penguin Books UK for sending me a copy in exchange for an honest review.

Born covered in the feathers of a bird, and kept hidden in a crumbling house full of secrets, Marea has always known she was different, but never known why. And so to find answers, she goes in search of the father she has never met.

The hunt leads her to the City of Murmurs, a place of mermaids and mystery, where jars of swirling mist are carried through the streets by the broken-hearted.

And Marea will never forget what she learns there.

Recommended Books by Black Authors Part 1 (and books on my tbr)

Untitled-2

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.

My Mini ‘Wayward Children’ by Seanan McGuire Series Reviews

Untitled_Panorama1

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!
