Pride Month TBRs

As a special Pride Month celebration, me and Anna decided that this year we were going to pick each other’s TBRs. Now, both of us are notoriously bad at actually keeping to TBRs, so this could go absolutely terribly, who knows!

We each picked 5 fiction (or poetry) books and one nonfiction book that we thought the other might like (or hoped). So check back in July to see how we got on!

(Oh, and keep following, because we have some exciting things for you this month!)

ARC Review: The Four Profound Weaves

49245102

Wind: To match one’s body with one’s heart
Sand: To take the bearer where they wish
Song: In praise of the goddess Bird
Bone: To move unheard in the night

The Surun’ do not speak of the master weaver, Benesret, who creates the cloth of bone for assassins in the Great Burri Desert. But Uiziya now seeks her aunt Benesret in order to learn the final weave, although the price for knowledge may be far too dear to pay.

Among the Khana, women travel in caravans to trade, while men remain in the inner quarter as scholars. A nameless man struggles to embody Khana masculinity, after many years of performing the life of a woman, trader, wife, and grandmother.

As the past catches up to the nameless man, he must choose between the life he dreamed of and Uiziya, and Uiziya must discover how to challenge a tyrant, and weave from deaths that matter.

Set in R. B. Lemberg’s beloved Birdverse,ย The Four Profound Weavesย hearkens to Ursula Le Guin’sย The Left Hand of Darkness. In this breathtaking debut, Lemberg offers a timeless chronicle of claiming one’s identity in a hostile world.

Book Releases: June 2020

It’s almost Pride!! Personally I can’t believe it’s already time for the best month in a year…

A lot of great books is coming out during Pride, but also it’s actually really amazing that Pride isn’t even the busiest month for LGBT releases this year. There are only around 80 and take it from me, guys, that’s number is far from being a record high.

So, without further ado, browse away!

(As always, the rainbow emoji indicates that the rep is ownvoices.)

Film & TV Recs: LGBT Teen Shows

Even when you’re an adult, sometimes what you really wanna do is watch teens being dramatic. There’s something very soothing about it. And it’s great to see them finally figure their life out and be at peace, so you can feel like a proud parent for a moment.

With that in mind, I compiled a list of ten TV shows about teenagers. There are quite a few genres here, so you should be able to choose something for yourself. Have fun!

Author Interview: Meryl Wilsner

Today’s interview is a very exciting one! Meryl Wilsner’s debut novel releases in just a few days (still time to preorder!) and promises an excellent slowburn sapphic romance featuring fake dating and everything that entails.

We spoke with them about their inspirations, how they work, and more! And you can listen to the character playlists they prepared for their book.

You can also follow them on twitter.

Misc Media Recs: Podcasts, Webseries & Webcomics (I)

At the beginning of the month, I got really into podcasts, because they gave me something to listen to while I was playing Fire Emblem: Three Houses. Or rather, one podcast. Because this list was initially supposed to be only podcasts, with a few webseries thrown in.

Instead… Well, you can see what it is instead.

But anyway. Sometimes you just need an easily and rapidly consumable shot of LGBT media, hence why on this post you can find recs for podcasts, webseries and webcomics. And this will be an ongoing series too.

If you enjoyed any of these recs, please do support the creators however you can (Patreon, Tapas, etc โ€” there should be links on websites, hopefully, or at least links to the creators’ pages).

So, pick your content and let’s go!

Book Recs: Twitter’s Favourite Trans Books

The other day I asked people on Twitter to give me their 5 favourite trans books. Now, I’m using trans here as an umbrella term to include all non-cis identities, so you will find recs with nonbinary characters, genderqueer characters and more.

And let me just say, the responses were great and I managed to compile a list of so many gems! And a lot of them seem to be rather overlooked, which is just another bonus & very good news to people starved for rep, who have already read all the popular titles.

Of course, as always on this blog, ownvoices books (in regard to gender identity) are marked with a ๐ŸŒˆ emoji. Please let me know if I got something wrong, so I can correct it!

Music Recs: Fav songs of February 2020

February’s mix is probably one of my favourite ones I made so far. So many of absolute bops! We were being blessed just before the whole world went to shit…

Anyway, as always, the post features ten of the songs I’m obsessed with and the rest of them you can find on the playlist, at the end. Have fun listening!

And perhaps you need more? Check out all my previous posts right here!
