Happy Pride! I know it’s been a hot minute since I posted on this blog, but to be honest I’ve been feeling pretty drained, physically, spiritually, emotionally, etc. But it’s Pride Month, and I’ve been burying my feelings by watching Heartstopper on repeat, alternating with re-reading the comics… you know, normal coping strategies! In all seriousness, I have come to this humble blog to offer you, out of the goodness of my heart, a 7ish recommendations of queer books you might want to read this month. (Why 7? Because it’s my favorite number, and everyone always makes lists of either 5 or 10 and that’s basic. Do you want me to be basic during Pride Month??)
The Space Between Worlds takes place on an Earth utterly unlike our own and yet so eerily similar that I can conceptualize it with crystal clarity. That said, the world(s) our protagonist — who I will call Cara — walk through are ones that I would shudder to find myself within, and I count myself […]
The thing I love most about Doctor Who novels is the chance they give to explore in depth the characters which aren’t always given enough of a chance to shine in the series itself.
Seeing as how February is Black History Month, I thought that reviewing N.K. Jemisin’s fantastic collection of short stories How Long ‘til Black Future Month? would be an excellent way to start off this month’s reviews and posts. I loved all of these stories, each of them engaging and thrilling, so much so that I […]
One thing that I’ve always loved about Doctor Who is the way that people unfamiliar with the Doctor and how they operate react to them, and so I loved that The Good Doctor starts off from the perspective of someone utterly bewildered about what is going on.
I can safely say that I’ve never read a book that caught me and drew me in quite like This Is How You Lose the Time War. Short though it is, this novella lasted both forever and only an instant, packing depth and intrigue into its pressed pages, with not a word wasted and no corners cut.
Given that there’s no new episodes of Doctor Who until 2020, I decided to read some books that cover the adventures of The Doctor, Yaz, Ryan, and Graham. I started with Combat Magicks because the book is about witchcraft and battles between Attila the Hun and the Roman Empire. How could I possibly resist?
I have mixed feelings about The Municipalists by Seth Fried. On the one hand, the book was a brilliant balance of comedy and philosophy. On the other hand, it fell into some very problematic tropes that caused me to not think the comedy so funny and tainted the nuance of the philosophy. The main premise […]
As someone who is historically not the biggest fan of the apocalypse genre of novels I was astonished over how much I enjoyed Severance by Ling Ma. This incredibly engaging novel managed to grasp and hold my attention enough that I read it in a single sitting, as I found myself captivated by its protagonist, […]
This past Tuesday marked the release of one of my most favorite books that I have read this year — An Absolutely Remarkable Thing by Hank Green. I’ve been looking forward to reading this book for months (I preordered it in February, before they even released the cover!) and I have been following its promotion […]
Considering the fact that Sense8 as a series has already been completed, I am a little late to the game in writing a review of it. That said, I binge watched season one in lieu of reading a book this week, so this is what you get. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ I suppose that it would be disingenuous […]
