Book Recs: Books By and About QPOC

Today, I have for you a massive rec list of books by and about QPOC (and Latinx authors/characters). There are fifty books on here – though that isn’t the sum total of those I know, so if your favourite isn’t here, it’s simply because I couldn’t fit it.

It’s gonna go like this: I’ve split this post into contemporary, historical, science fiction or dystopia, and fantasy sections. In each section, half the books have been released, half are upcoming (barring sci fi, where I could only find 4 upcoming releases).

So, enjoy!

Book Recs: Poetry Collections (II)

I said I want to make this a series of poetry recommendations, but the first and only post so far is from July last year… But I am here with ten more poetry collections and better late than never, right?

Like last time, I changed our traditional “Why Should I Read It?” section into a place to share my favourite quotes from a book. Or at least one of many favourites…

Let’s go then!

Book Club: The Princess Trap

After both of us spectacularly failing to read December’s book, we were both back on the horse last month with The Princess Trap, chosen, we have to admit, mostly because we’d both enjoyed Talia Hibbert’s books in the past, and were hoping for another great read with this one.

So, how did we feel about it? Read on!

Wrap-up: January

As always and to no one’s surprise, Charlotte read more last month than me & I watched more than she. But surprisingly, I read quite a few fantasy novels! So really, if you think about it, it was a month of surprises…

Anyway, we both read some amazing books, so take a look at our lists!

(Also I realised I’ve been watching a lot of movies lately, so if any of you wants a specific rec list from me, please don’t hesitate to say so in the comments & I’ll do my best!)

Author Interview: Kat Dunn

It’s the second day of #FFFeb, a sapphic readathon hosted by Charlotte over on twitter (you can find more info here), which seemed like the perfect opportunity to share our interview with Kat for a number of reasons. 1) her books would be perfect to read right now, if you’re lucky enough to have an arc & 2) all the books Kat recommended us are sapphic, as well!

Also, we’re just really excited about it!

Anyway, remember you can follow Kat on twitter for more content, and enjoy!

ARC Review: Moontangled

48411939._SY475_

Take one ambitious politician and one determined magician with wildly different aims for their next meeting.

Add a secret betrothal, a family scandal, and a heaping of dangerous fey magic in an enchanted wood…and watch the sparks fly!

For just one moonlit, memorable night, Thornfell College of Magic has flung open its doors, inviting guests from around the nation to an outdoor ball intended to introduce the first-ever class of women magicians to society…but one magician and one invited guest have far more pressing goals of their own for the night.

Quietly brilliant Juliana Banks is determined to win back the affections of her secret fiancée, rising politician Caroline Fennell, who has become inexplicably distant. If Juliana needs to use magic to get her stubborn fiancée to pay her attention…well, then, as the top student in her class, she is more than ready to take on that challenge!

Unbeknownst to Juliana, though, Caroline plans to nobly sacrifice their betrothal for Juliana’s own sake – and no one has ever accused iron-willed Caroline Fennell of being easy to deter from any goal.

Their path to mutual happiness may seem tangled beyond repair…but when they enter the fey-ruled woods that border Thornfell College, these two determined women will find all of their plans upended in a night of unexpected and magical possibilities.
