Top Ten Backlist Queer Books I Want to Read in 2023

March 21: TTT Rewind (Pick a previous topic that you missed or would like to re-do/update.): Backlist Queer Books I Want to Read in 2023

Top Ten Contemporary Romance

February 28: Genre Freebie (Pick a genre and build a list around it. It could a list of favorites, a to-read list, recommendations for people interested in reading books in that genre, “if you like this, try this”, etc.) : Contemporary Romance

Until relatively recently, I’d have said that if there was one genre I really didn’t lean towards, it was contemporary romance. However, in the past couple of years I’ve read so many good stories in the genre, it’s one I’ll actively seek out. And there’s so much variety! So for this weeks topic, I’m sharing some some contemporary romances I’ve loved, and some I’m really excited to pick up.

Let me know what you think!

Top Ten Favorite Heroines

February 21: Favorite Heroines

This was a tough topic, because my memory for this sort of thing is so bad! And partly because I really love a lot of ‘non-hero’ type protagonists? I’m sure I’m going to spend all of today reading other peoples lists and thinking — Duh! How’d I forget her? — but these are the ten books with the most memorable, most enjoyable heroines I can think of.
