Blog Tour Review: These Witches Don’t Burn by Isabel Sterling // The Ultimate Gay Witches Book

Gay witches book.

That’s what this book, These Witches Don’t Burn, has been dubbed, and honestly, what better way to promote it?

Today, I’m very excited to bring you a review and aesthetic of These Witches Don’t Burn as part of the Penguin Summer Lovin’ blogger Campaign! This campaign features three different LGBTQIAP+ books that have recently been published, and I’m honored to be the first stop for this book!

16 Pride Month Book Recommendations! My Favorite Queer Books with Intersectional Representation

If you didn’t hear, it’s Pride month and I have LOTS OF BOOKS TO REC.

I’ve read almost 100 books with queer rep, and I have SO many books that I could recommend you read for Pride month, but today, I thought I’d narrow it down to 16 books with intersectional queer rep!

Intersectional rep is very important to me, as a queer POC mentally ill teen, so I wanted to highlight books I love that featured it. Too often we see white gay books dominating LGBTQIAP+ book lists, and I wanted to show some love to some other, equally deserving books.

And yes, I’ve pretty much screamed at you about all of these books already. Is that going to stop me from screaming about them even more? No. (But I did try to include SOME “quieter” books that definitely deserve more hype!!)

It’s Pride Month and Unsurprisingly I Have an All-Queer Book TBR to Celebrate!!!

Pride month is upon us!!

I mean, I’m pretty much just sticking to only queer books this month to celebrate, but it’s not like I’m doing anything different for it, seeing as I read a huge amount of queer books already. But might as well make it official with a post and all!!

For once in my life I actually made a realistic TBR for myself and I am genuinely excited to read all the books I have on here! (Especially one in particular…)

Beyond the official 7 books in my TBR, I know I’m also probably going to read some queer webcomics because I love them so much. I also expect that I’m still going to have more time to read so I have a small list of books at the end that I might get around to as well, depending on time/mood/accessibility!!

(Also props to me for including a MG, NA, and adult book each in my TBR?? YA who.)

ARC Review: The Weight of the Stars by K Ancrum // The Beautifully Written Gays in Space Book that Made Me Cry!!!

Gays in space.

That’s it. That’s my review. That’s pretty much all you need to know to pick this book up. That, and also the fact that it’s written with some of the most gorgeous prose ever and it made me cry and has an absolutely stunning cover.

I don’t think I’d ever read a YA gays in space book until now, and I have to say… it was everything I was looking for. Sure, most of the book took place on Earth, and sure, the gay was very slowburn, but did I adore it completely despite that?? (Yes.)

I’m a little late in posting my book review (prioritizing school and my health!!) and the book published two weeks ago, but I hope I manage to convince you all to pick up a copy whenever you can, because it is absolutely worth it!!

The Year of the Asian Reading Challenge 2019: Sign-Up/Update Post + Tentative TBR!

My brand? Asian books.

I mean, I’m Asian so of course you would find me hyping up all the Asian books ever, and I know people who’ve followed my blog can confirm that I never shut up about them.

So obviously, when four of my favorite bloggers, LilyVicky, Shealea, and CW announced a year-long reading challenge for 2019 to read as many books by Asian authors as possible, I naturally got started on my official sign-up/update post immediately!!

(Click on the hosts’ names to find out more about the challenge! You can sign up here.)

Recently I collaborated with Cait @ Paper Fury to predict “trends” for 2019’s YA, and one of my predictions was that there would be a LOT of Asian books/fantasies. This was backed up by my last post, featuring 12/30 upcoming books by Asian authors. So I love that the hosts decided to create this challenge for 2019, because it truly is the Year of the Asian and I could not be more excited!
