An Unkindness of Ghosts | Rivers Solomon

I enjoyed this book, but it's more dystopian than I typically enjoy. The world-ship & society are vividly portrayed, & characters are interesting. It's not an easy read, set in a space society where black slavery is alive and well. I enjoyed having a neuro-atypical protagonist & LGBTQ+ characters. Warnings for suicide, rape, abuse, mental illness, and others. #lgbtqauthors #lgbtq #scifi #queerbook #pocauthors #bipoc

Under the Udala Trees | Chinelo Okparanta

A bittersweet look at coming of age as a lesbian woman in a country where homosexuals face the risk of imprisonment or being murdered by mob violence. Okparanta does a good job of showing the inner lives and communal relationships of those who shape Ijeoma‘s life.

Ava and Jules just broke up. So of course they get paired up on a quest to retrieve a shopper who‘s entered a portal to an alternate dimension. Short, fun, adventurous, sad, and hopeful all at once. A short read, though sometimes it feels longer. Another book gently mocking IKEA and offering sharp eyed commentary on capitalism, retail, accountability, and love.

The ABC's of LGBT+ | Ashley Mardell

I picked this up in a book store a while back and thought it looked like an interesting resource for someone like me who has no easy descriptors for her sexuality. It's given me some ideas, and some things to think about. I'm still working on it, but I've learned a lot about other sexualities and identieis in the meantime! The writing was highly accessible. #lgbt #lgbtq #lgbtbook #queerbook 🖤🤍💜

I suspect this book will have some hard ups and downs, so I‘ll probably read the whole thing now instead of later. Made it to their discussion of gendered language and how it‘s meant to be more freeing, so one person‘s use of language for themselves won‘t match someone else‘s like how they identify as transgender and they, and have been told by some trans people that they aren‘t trans because they‘re they. #lgbtq #nonfiction #queerbook

On Swift Horses | Shannon Pufahl
Pickpick

Between a pick and a so-so for me, ultimately a pick because it's beautifully written and I cared deeply about the characters. Melancholy bordering on a bit morose, I found Muriel's and Julius' stories sweetly sad and slightly tragic. This book is slow- paced and full of secrets and backstory. A little bit like a cross between Steinbeck and Obrecht in style. Interesting read and also a #queerbook.

This is the most exciting news! I Iove this book and am absolutely delighted that it's heading for a film adaptation! #lgbt #lgbtq #queerbook #queercomic #genderqueer (screenshot of an article from The Advicate)
