Book Releases: 2020 Sapphic Releases (July to December)

It’s August which means it’s time for PART TWO of 2020’s sapphic releases (part one here). These are all the sapphic releases that I know about from July to December this year (so, usual disclaimer of it not being on here generally means I don’t know about it. Sometimes means I completely forgot even if I did know).

As ever, 🌈 means the author identifies as LGBT. Apologies if I have screwed up a date somewhere β€” they’ve changed so often I know I haven’t kept track of them all.

For clarification: I have included in this list books where the sapphic character is either the main character/protagonist, has a POV, or is a major character who affects the plot.

So let’s go!

Music Recs: Fav songs of July 2020

First week of August is over so that’s a high time for me to let you guys know what songs released last month by LGBT artists did I love the most. Hold on tight, because the whole mix is basically 50 songs long (it’s available at the end of the post), even if I only included the 10 absolute faves in the post itself!

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

Book(s) of the Month: Legendborn, Master of Poisons, and Every Body Looking

This month’s feature is a little different, in that, both me and Anna looked at our releases list, and couldn’t decide which book to pick, since there were three books we thought, hey we’ve not seen that talked about very much. And we definitely hadn’t seen them being talked about as being gay.

Hence why this post contains not one but three books.

Wrap-up: July

Is it just me or has July passed by so fast? I can’t quite believe we’re already in August. In the last month, well… you can see what happened to the pair of us reading-wise (every time I think to myself, I’ll start this post earlier so it’s not so much work adding links/images all at once. I never do). And watching-wise (but that’s nothing new for me, is it…).

But anyway. Check out what we did manage to read and watch.

Also, thank you so much to everyone who nominated us in the 2020 Book Blogger Awards! We are truly so thankful! And, obviously, congratulations to everyone in there as well! If you haven’t already, be sure to check out the full list of bloggers nominated.

Book Releases: August 2020

The summer is halfway through, but that doesn’t mean the good times are ending! The days might be shorter and shorter now (in this hemisphere), but that only means your evenings are longer and longer, so you will have more time to read! And oh boy, is there a lot to read in August… Almost 100 books.

Like always, a rainbow emoji is there to tell you a book is ownvoices, in terms of LGBT rep. And if you need some more books, you can find all our previous releases posts here.

Book Reviews: Backlist Releases You May Have Missed

Something a bit different for you today, with a series of reviews of books that have been published recently (and a little less recently) that you might have missed out on. A little disclaimer first up, though: copies of these books were kindly provided us by the authors, but these are my unbiased reviews.

So dive in! And I hope you find something here that interests you.

Film & TV Recs: LGBT Anime

I wasn’t sure what kind of movies or shows should I compile a rec list of for you guys, so I asked on twitter & that is why today, I’m here with 10 LGBT anime. There will be both shows and movies here, so hopefully everyone can find something for themselves.

But before we start, for the love of god… It’s ah-ni-meh, not ah-ni-may. You’re pronouncing a Japanese word. Speaking of, that’s also why I’m not marking Japanese mcs in rep, since it’s true for all the titles here.

Most Anticipated 2020 Releases: July to December

Ignoring the fact that this post is a little delayed and a couple of the books may have been published (we did at least pick them earlier than this!), but today we have for you, our most anticipated releases of the second half of this year.

Not that either of us really read any that we selected for the first half.

But anyway. Check out what we picked, and let us know what you’re looking forward to most!
