short/engaging/attention capturing queer books that i read in one day!

A lot of people in my offline-life often tell me that they don't know how I manage to read so much. That they don't have time to read, or they can just never get into books, or struggle to find the motivation to finish them once they do start reading. My answer to the first is normally along the lines of - then make time. Instead of sitting down and watching TV in the evenings I will nearly always stick my nose in a book; and on the days when I do watch something I normally always spend at least half an hour reading in bed before going to sleep.

And I do read quickly. I can finish most books in a few hours so finishing them in a day is really dependant on how early in the day I start reading rather than anything to do with the book. But, saying that, there are definitely some books which I started late and finished the same day because they were either shorter or just grabbed my attention from the very first page and for today's post I thought I'd share the queer ones with you!

Reading It Queer: The Sequel | Readathon Announcement


It's nearly Pride Month and I am SO excited because for the second year running I am going to be hosting a month long readathon that is all about queer books!


April Wrap-up: OWL's, Easter Readathon and Romance Books

April was an incredibly good reading month for me, I took part in two different readathons (OWL's by G at BookRoast & the Easter Readathon by Kate at Reading Through Infinity) and then had an entire week where I only read F/F romance books! In total I read 17 books - 11 physical and 6 e-books, one of which I read twice because it was so good.

Sapphic Shelves: an introduction

hello hello and welcome to my new blog series: sapphic shelves! if you've been around my blog for any length of time (or follow me elsewhere online) then it will be no surprise to you that i'm a Big fan of sapphic literature.

it's my favourite pairing to read and a good 70% of my TBR is just gay girls falling for each other in a hundred different ways. i do spend some of my time shouting about queer lit (most often on my bookstagram) but i've decided to shout about it a little more because why not!


guess who's back? (i'll give you a clue - it's me!)

hello, nice to see you again! it's been the longest time since my last post and even before then i wasn't exactly what you might call a 'frequent blogger' so i figured before i launch a whole heap of New Content at you, i should probably re-introduce myself first.

Queer 2020 Releases I Can't Wait For (Part 1)

This is in no way an exhaustive list of queer titles that are being released in the first half of this year because we are being spoiled! There's honestly at least ten coming out (ha) each month which is unbelievably awesome and makes me so, so happy! But the same books don't appeal to everyone and therefore I decided to make a list purely of the releases that I am most excited about. There are some I've left off because of the genre (you'll notice that this list is 99% contemporary YA) or it's a series I haven't yet started or even because I am looking forward to it coming out but am just unlikely to actually read it this year.
