Thoughtful Thursday – The Importance of LGBTQI+ Own Voices novels

When I was compiling my top five for this month I noticed that those of the books on my list weren't actually written by LGBTQI+ authors. This is especially strange to me as barely any of my texts set on my gender and sexuality module at university were either. This got me thinking, although I… Continue reading Thoughtful Thursday – The Importance of LGBTQI+ Own Voices novels

Although, traditionally, summer… Continue reading Thoughtful Thursday – Seasonal Reading Patterns
