Book Recs: 10 LGBT+ Sci-Fi/Fantasy Books by LGBT+ Authors

I think we can all agree that inclusivity and diversity in books is great. And what better way to support diversity in gender and sexuality in books than by supporting the LGBT+ authors who write them? So here are some amazing books that I've really enjoyed and definitely recommend if they sound like your kinda...
 

Bookish Tag Post: You’re Not Good Enough Tag

This sounds like it's going to be a really sad or mean kinda tag, right? But don't you fret, it's actually really fun. The way it works is, you take 30 characters from books you've read, you choose two to use for each question, then you decide which is the better of the two for the answer. I tried to keep this as random as possible, so I chose the books mostly randomly by using my Goodreads...

Bookish Musings: Top Ten Characters from Books I Read in 2017

This post was harder than I thought it would be. Not because I didn't read about any great characters but because---and this sounds weird to say---I don't know what I should consider my "favorite" anymore. Characters who are complex and superbly well-written? Characters who are likeable people? Characters who make me feel for them? Characters I want to date or be friends with? So I decided to...
 

Cover Characteristics: Best Book Covers from Books I Read in 2017

Gah, you all know how much I love book covers, so I literally look forward to this post all year. I didn't go quite as crazy as I did last year, but I suppose I went crazy enough. But hey, it's the end of the year! And covers are pretty to look at! And people worked hard to make these! So the more, the merrier, I say. But, though I love all of these, I did pick ten to discuss and managed to...
 

The Weekly Update: 9/3/17

Whew! It has been over a month since I have done a Weekly Update, and I have so much stuff to share all in one post now that it's a little overwhelming. I'm still not sure I'll be doing these every week though. I might switch to every other week or monthly. I'll figure something out eventually....
 

Book Review: The Heart of the Lost Star (Tales of the High Court Book 3) by Megan Derr

Kamir has been interested in High Commander Jader for years, but it's a fantasy he knows will never come true, not when he's the family disgrace---married at 16, pregnant at 19, now divorced with two children, about to be disowned by his parents, and still dealing with an ex he thought he'd never have to see again. Jader grew up an Islander after washing ashore there with no memory at the age of...
 

Book Review: The Pirate of Fathoms Deep (Tales of the High Court Book 2) by Megan Derr

A year and a half ago, Lesto was punched in the imperial pavilion by Shemal, a pirate criminal; but unable to deny the chemistry between them, they snuck away to an empty room later that day where they did far more inappropriate things before Shemal immediately ran off, and neither has been able to forget the other since. When Lesto gets kidnapped and dropped on Shemal's doorstep, both men are...
