June 18: Most Anticipated Releases of the Second Half of 2019

There are so many amazing sounding books still to come out this year which I just can’t wait to read. These are just a few that jumped out at me. How am I going to fit them all in?!

Which book are you most looking forward to coming out from now until the end of the year?


50+ LGBT+ Retellings

If you’ve followed this blog for any length of time, you’ll know that retellings are one of my absolute favourite things to read. Since it’s LGBT+ Pride Month, I thought I’d put together a list of queer retellings to share with you all. Hopefully you’ll find something for your TBR or any future readathon prompts.

I’ve been as thourogh as I could be, but if there’s any I’ve missed or anything you don’t think belongs here, please let me know down in the comments.

Note: I’ve read a lot of these, but not all, so I can’t make promises about the representation. If you want details on any, let me know and I’ll do my best to help you out. 


Galavant! Book Tag


Susy at Susy’s Cozy World posted this tag as part of the Wyrd and Wonder event and when I saw it I just had to have a go. I was such a sucker for this show. It’s got everything I love in it: unlikeable but strong female characters, medieval-esque fantasy that includes diversity, musical numbers and lots of humour, snark and campiness.

I’m gutted this never really took off and I desperately wish it had gotten a third season. But, since that never happened, I’ll enjoy this tag instead.

Opening Line:

The day was unseasonably warm for autumn, in just the type of way that made me regret wearing my cranberry-colored merino wool sweater.
