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”
As I write the sixth part of this series, I am already seeing even more books being released this year with LBGTQ+ characters. It just continues to blow my mind that after struggling over the years to find books with this much representation, we are now being blessed by them from all angles. It makes me feel optimistic for the future in publishing and reading and I hope when I do this again in 2021, the list is even longer! I also want to thank all the people helping me over on Twitter by linking some of these books. You are all appreciated! Of course as we are already into the second month of 2020, some of these books have already been released so make sure to check out the release date in bold!
In a post-apocalyptic America, a community survives in a national park, surrounded by water that keeps the Dead at bay. But when winter comes, there’s nothing to stop them from crossing the ice.
Then homebody Peter puts the camp in danger by naively allowing a stranger to come ashore and he’s forced to leave the community of Wranglestone. Now he must help rancher Cooper, the boy he’s always watched from afar, herd the Dead from their shores before the lake freezes over.
But as love blossoms, a dark discovery reveals the sanctuary’s secret past. One that forces the pair to question everything they’ve ever known.
Thank you to Stripes Publishing for sending me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. Continue reading “Wranglestone by Darren Charlton Spoiler-Free Review”
In light of recent events with a certain author who will not be named, it’s important that as a book blogger, I shout about some books written by trans and non-binary authors. As I have a long list, I’ve decided to split each post into nine books. Here is a mix of YA, fantasy, sci-fi and contemporary (all released) and I hope you find something you like. Make sure to head over to the author’s social medias and show them some love and support! Continue reading “Books Written by Trans & Non-Binary Authors Part I”
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”
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”
This week from the 20th to the 26th of October, we are celebrating Ace Awareness Week which is a week dedicated for all those who identify as asexual, aromantic, demisexual, aroace and so on to come together, support each other, help each other and also spread awareness. Being demisexual myself, I knew I had to post this week and I have chosen some books with asexual and aspec characters in! I won’t be giving full descriptions of the books but rather that identities are represented in each!
One thing we like to feature on our blog is upcoming diverse books and fortunately, 2018 is packed full of them. These are some that have been announced and that we are looking forward to – including a few sequels of our favourites. We have researched the diverse aspects as much as possible but if we have any information incorrect, please let us know. Overall, we hope you have an amazing reading year in 2018 and remember with all these amazing titles, there’s no reason to not read diversely and support own voices authors. The first section titled ‘standalones’ doesn’t mean they won’t have sequels, but rather that they are debuts/first in the series. Continue reading “Diverse 2018 Releases”
