The Fifth Season | N. K. Jemisin

Unsurprisingly, I've only read 3% of the books The New York Times claims to be the top 100 books of the century. I usually don't enjoy the sorts of books that end up on lists of this nature (partly because they almost never include fantasy or graphic novels, which are two of my go-to reading experiences). Also, is splayed open really the only image of Fun Home they had available to them?

mandarchy 🤣 I saw that splayed open book and my eye twitched. I call that using a table for a book mark. It's not right! 5d

This book is what happens when someone comes up with a spicy smut idea, dresses it up in weak character and story development, and then gets shy and pulls back from their spicy smut idea and only half executes it. I didn‘t expect this to be very good, and it wasn‘t. I didn‘t bother to add it to any of my ongoing reading challenges. The art is pretty, though. #manga #lgbtqia

This one has a seemingly interesting premise with characters reborn into modern times searching for each other after recovering their past life memories. However, it was not pulled off well. It felt weak, more like someone sprinkled glitter on a story when they could have used gold. Overall, pretty cute and I liked the characters. #LGBTQIA #MagicalRealism #reincarnation #Manga

A bit of a surprisingly pleasant read. Kouki takes a bit of an overdone premise (roommates becoming unattached friends with benefits) and does great emotional exploration with the characters. I definitely enjoyed this one. I also read Ryouma as more on the ace spectrum like me based on some of the things he says and thinks. There were a few spots that were a bit more on the problematic side for both characters. #Manga #LGBTQIA

Such a silly, fluffy romance full of nonsense and beautiful food illustrations (which are my favorite 🤩)! I loved seeing Ben stumble into this restaurant position and discovering a passion for cooking that he didn‘t explore while getting his degree in English. This exploration of future potential was a lot of fun. I wasn‘t a huge fan of the chef‘s emotional abuse but otherwise a great cast of characters. #LGBTQIA #Comics #Food

This was a lovely introduction to kitchen witchery (though the author seems to take liberties with history and prehistory). I am surprised by how much of this magic resonates with me. The author has a lot of fun explaining the essence of kitchen magic and lays out excellent examples of rituals and recipes. I made a few recipes while I had this from the library and they were really tasty. #magic #Cooking

This was just the level of sugar-saturated fluff I was looking for. While grieving the end of yet another short-lived relationship, Riku manages to fall into what seems like a quick rebound with none other than the man who owns the cafe he works at. An appallingly adorable read. The author does a good job of allowing Riku the space he needs to grow and explore his own insecurities as he navigates this new relationship.

Two siblings are forced into hiding when a relative stages a coup to usurp their noble house. They take on new identities within a magical order of women and plan their next move. I absolutely loved this book. The characters have a lot of room to explore themselves and grow, and the art is stunning. I read this back in March for #TransRightsReadathon.

Yamilet doesn't feel comfortable at her catholic school for many reasons, from being low-income to navigating her queerness. An excellent, complex read that really delves into the characters' feelings and explores a lot of issues that intersect in people's lives.

I read this back in March for #TransRightsReadathon and really enjoyed it. Naturally, I didn't read the description before diving into what I thought would be a fluffy book, so I was blindsided by the intense portrayal of childhood grief. I loved the exploration of identity and friendship, as well as exploring social life on the autism spectrum. I didn't realize it was a novel in verse because I listened to the audiobook. #LGBTQIA

Nigel has reached the age where he has to go up against other teens from around their region in a high-stakes competition. The losers lose their magic. This was just alright, but it was still a fun read. I loved how goofy it was, and am always a sucker for magic boosted by love. I‘m not the target audience, so quite a lot felt a little heavy-handed to me. #LGBTQIA

Not a bad read so far, but I have to say I‘m unimpressed with this author‘s needless proliferation of sexist, ableist, and anti-asexual notions. For no reason, he took the time to repeat that a female geologist who had shown no romantic interests left this world with her cold, petrified heart in her collection. The sexuality of the men somehow hasn‘t come up. He also said of Smith‘s wife that she was a burden due to her ill health and…

Kenyazero … somehow didn‘t feel it was important to note (granted, I didn‘t look this woman up) that her other diagnosis of being ill with hyper-sexuality may have reflected more on the times and their view of women with interest in non-child-making sex than on her actual mental health. 2mo

Strange alliances definitely characterizes a lot of what happens in this book, as each brother is joined (mostly begrudgingly) by a host of unexpected characters. The story does go a bit off the rails, but I think it's meant to because it is modeled after epics, which also tend to go off on random character-adding tangents. The watercolor art style is such a treat, and I look forward to the next book. #Comic #Chinese

Another enjoyable entry in this series. I was delighted to meet Ross and Violet and get to know Maud and Hawthorn more in this volume.

An LGBTQIA+ read involving a book store and a mysterious power struggle over secret information sounded like a perfect pick for me. Unfortunately, I didn't love this. The writing style didn't quite work for me, and I didn't much enjoy the character relationship. The pacing also felt a bit off, and it's obvious the author doesn't know what PTSD is like. #LGBTQIA

This seems like it should absolutely be on my list of beloved books, but I just am not enjoying it. Maybe it's the hyper focus on the sexual that's just not meshing well this week with my demisexual self. I am also just not quite following on the whole magical girl dominating softball thing. It's not quite as interesting as I expected, but it is still pretty fun. #LGBTQIA #Sports #Comic

Élodie doesn't shy away from showing her struggles to be a supportive parent when her late teens early20s child comes out as trans. Opening the book with information about gender, identity, and sexuality does a lot to show how far she has come since then. This is a meaningful read, and I highly recommend it for anyone who is having cognitive dissonance in supporting trans folks in their own lives. #LGBTQ #Transgender #Comic #NonfictionComic

Breaking out of assigned gender norms and just being yourself is extremely freeing❤️ even for cis folks. As a teen and early 20s young woman, I hated the idea of doing girl things simply because I was female, and sometimes went out of my way to not do them. Eventually I stopped gendering things I was doing and just let myself do what I wanted to, and stopped avoiding experiences I wanted to have.

Bailing on a second #Roll100 pick this morning! I know before I started that I probably wouldn't finish this book. I don't enjoy this style of surreal, dark, pain and anger-stuffed books. I figured I would give it a try, though.
