Question of the Day: You're gonna keep reading queer books even though June is over, right? #QotD

We don't just exist one month a year, so include us in your TBRs year round.⁣

This is the same for reading BIPOC books, disability books, mental health books, et cetera - educate yourself all the time, not just when a certain minority is hyped.⁣

Only 29 pages in, very different from Homegoing but I am glad the author can write in such different ways. I am starting this while I wait for a library copy of Homegoing to come back in; then I will continue with that one and see which book holds my attention the most! 😝 I'll probably still finish them both. I look forward to whatever Gyasi publishes. Good night!!

Audiobook: Interesting and unique POV as the author is a direct descendant of Wells. Draws correlations between civil rights movement of Wells day and today‘s BLM etc. Relatively short but does the job. Somewhat disjointed in logical flow, but I think all in all a good read. #audiobook #diversereads #history #africanamericanhistory #americanhistory #nonfiction

Queenie | Candice Carty-Williams

Pickpick

I enjoyed the setting and realistic characterization of a young woman grappling with self-destructive behaviors and unresolved trauma. For me, MC is not likeable but uncomfortably relatable. The raw nature of Queenie‘s decisions and circumstances are realistic and resonate with me and I imagine many readers of similar age of MC or older. A good read that‘s quick but packs a punch. #DiverseReads #ContemporaryFiction

kspenmoll Great review ! I found the book to be raw & unsettling but beauty in there as well. 1y

...she is in awe of him, for he is the most beautiful man that she has ever seen, with skin so dark and creamy that looking at it could very well be the same thing as tasting it.

Ness's skin was no longer skin really, more like the ghost of her past made seeable, physical. She didn't mind the reminder.

TimTam laughed, a sound that rumbled like thunder built from the cloud of his gut and expelled through the sky of his mouth.

DISCLAIMER: THE LANGUAGE IN THIS BOOK IS UTTERLY BEAUTIFUL. YOU WILL FALL INTO IT 🥰

...she would always miss the gray rock of her mother's heart. She would always associate real love with a hardness of spirit.
