Wrap-up: October 2019

October was not very good to us when it came to reading. Personally I was in a lowkey reading slump (yet again), but I don’t know what is Charlotte’s excuse for reading barely ten books… (edit: that’s a lie, I read only 10 LGBT books not 10 books total)

To be fair Charlotte made me watch 9-1-1 and we’ve both been thinking about little else since.

In any case! Here are the LGBT titles we consumed last month! And once again, the fire emoji indicates a reread/rewatch,
