Tori is determined to prove the existence of the murderous mermaids that killed the crew of the mockumentary ship her sister worked on. She may have bit off more than she could chew.

I enjoyed this just as much the 2nd time round! Beautifully diverse cast, lots of science, a typically benign folktale creature turned on its head, & moments of character between the action. I was a little more disappointed with the abrupt ending though. 🌕🌕🌕🌕🌑

peanutnine I don't usually do horror but a couple of these sound really good 9mo
AbigailJaneBlog @peanutnine I tried to go for more "spooky" than outright horror as I'm not a fan either! 9mo

Gosh I cannot seem to keep on top of anything over the summer - as soon as my routine is messed up, I'm gone! So due to that, this next pick will be for September!

Discussions will be around the 24th and I can't find any content warnings so go forth with care! As always, this discussion is open to anyone who wishes to join.

Super duper cute graphic novel! This was funny and punny and lovely 😍 I came for the cheese puns and stayed for the amazing found family. I loved the exploration of societal norms and gender expression. And the fashion!! Gorgeous outfits and images in general. Cannot recommend this more!

This was an action packed sci-fi adventure full of great queer characters and interesting world-building. While the stakes were high, I did have some trouble staying invested in the story - it took me a while to get through because it wasn't a book I would hurry to pick back up. But by the end I was fully committed to the characters' mission and will most likely continue the series

This was such a fun read. Over the top, with manga inspired art, anachronisms out the wazoo, and full of cheesy puns. It was the perfect read for a stressful day. What a great pick for #LGBTbookclub !

Perfect lunch/reading combo for this #LGBTbookclub pick. I‘m enjoying the story so far. It‘s the first book club pick I‘ve been able to get to in any sort of timely way so I‘m pleased with myself today. @AbigailJaneBlog
