1. Saint‘s Song by Garrett Leigh. Somewhere in England I‘ve never heard of and frankly didn‘t really pay much attention to. For broody, angsty, steamy reasons 🤣🤣🤣. 2. The last 5 ⭐️ read was actually the tagged kid‘s book. 3. I‘m excited for Alexis Hall‘s Husband Material.

Skins: The Series | Garrett Leigh

@rachelsbrittain 1. I‘m currently reading the third book in the tagged series. 2. I think the first LGBTQ book was Annie on my Mind in the 90‘s but I didn‘t read any others until Aristotle and Dante discover the Secrets of the Universe in 2010 or something. And it‘s been easier and easier to find LGBTQIA+ books ever since! 3. The last book I finished was The Times That I Knew I Was Gay, a graphic autobiography by Eleanor Crewes. 🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈

Great text, chunked into small parts. The audio is the author, and I enjoyed hearing her voice. The real winner here is the illustration. Well done, Nikkolas Smith!!

What do Radiohead, Black Lives Matter, and quarks have in common?? The Disordered Cosmos. This book is deep. It is poetic. It is particle physics at the intersection of gender and Critical Race Theory. I recommend EVERYONE read it.

GingerAntics Critical race theory? It‘s a legal book? 3w
Nutmegnc @GingerAntics It is. And the CRT is my interpretation of the myriad ways that laws and systems support whites and exclude Blacks. Even down to our scientific community and research, not necessarily mentioned specifically in the book. Or it wouldn‘t be legal 🙄. (edited) 3w
WaterVixxen I would recommend the Isis Papers as well. Confused by the CRT comment. CRT is not illegal on a federal level it is banned in only a handful of states at present. 3w
See All 7 Comments
GingerAntics @Nutmegnc unless you‘re reading it to students in a school, in a state that has banned supposed CRT (because CRT is taught in law school, not elementary/jr high/hs), so I‘m confused on that as well. 3w
Nutmegnc @GingerAntics @watervixen I was actually trying to be sarcastic. Sorry the joke didn‘t land. Also I misunderstood the legal comment. No, it‘s a scientific book not a legal book. 3w
GingerAntics @Nutmegnc oh whoops. Sorry. I‘ve gotten this book from library, so I look forward to being able to discuss it with you. 🤷🏼‍♀️ I have been inspired by your social rule breaking. 😂 3w

Out of the Blue | Jason June
post image

Entertaining take on the Little Mermaid. Three ⭐️. I enjoyed the characters, their take on the gender binary, and some mer pop-culture references. Audiobook was great (5⭐️) with André Santana and Neo Cihi. I found the ending kind of abrupt but it would make sense more if there is a sequel planned…?‍♀️? Further comment with spoilers below.

Nutmegnc Also the sex scene? It was okay but kind of random? Seemed kind of uneven to me. And who is the purple fin? Also there were some great threads about body positivity that got kind of lost? (edited) 3w

#gaymay Lots of queer rep that is just integrated into the story. Parts were funny and it had a good ending but mostly I found it boring. I listened to the audio and read ebook. I liked the author‘s pirate story and I really wanted to like this one more than I actually did. 😢

I LOVED THIS swoony, spicy read with just the perfect kind of angst. Single dads, best friends to lovers, bi awakening. #gaymay This is by the same author as the tagged book, since this one isn‘t in the database.

#gaymay I‘m really glad to see a queer BIPOC author and a book with two Black men on the cover. It had some holes but it was a decent story of second/third?chances and fake dating.

GondorGirl This book was cute enough, but I think it needed a heavier hand with editing. 2mo
Nutmegnc @gondorgirl I agree! I thought it was just me. 2mo
GondorGirl @Nutmegnc For example... WHY DID THEY BREAK UP?! And why did he know how much all that expensive stuff cost? 2mo
Nutmegnc @GondorGirl yeah, the whole second chance thing, and third, was a stretch for me. Never even considered the cost thing 🤣. The whole second chance thing is not my fav trope, so I thought I was being too harsh. 🤣 Had to amend my blurb. (edited) 2mo

Starts out with sweet vibes as we learn nonverbal Skylar has started a new school in North Carolina. Add amazing new adoptive parents, supportive new friends, hot Jacob the love interest, and a legal fight over the dress code. Kind of angsty and some parts seem a bit rushed, but overall good queer YA romance. #gaymay 3 swoonies😍😍😍and 1/2 spice.

TheBookHippie Oh I liked this one I read it with a mentee. 2mo
