Here I am. Again. With only two titles for this post. And one of them is a short story, too. One of them is Polish though & I am so very excited about it!!! I also just now realised both stories feature trans characters, so we’re having a little bit of a theme here, my dudes.

This is a pretty short story which you can read for free here. But the length doesn’t matter because it still manages to be one of the softest & most lovely stories I read! The two main boys are adorable and I love hem dearly. And we get magical elements too, with demons & curses & stuff! It’s great fun.

You can read my full review (in Polish) here but let me just say: an lgbt novel!! Here!! In this country!! One that is honestly good!! I’m not gonna lie, I’ve been yelling about this ever since I started the book yesterday.
Like I said, the main character is trans. That’s still not very common in US but in Poland??? I literally cannot think of a single novel like that! It’s a huge fuc*ing deal, my guys!!! I’m so so so happy a book like this was published in my country & I hope it will get as popular as it deserves to be! Because honestly? It’s so good? Like it took me a while to get used to the writing, given how it’s in Polish and I just…. don’t really read in Polish anymore. But once I got? Amazing. I lowkey wanna reread it already. :>>>
I’m also running a giveaway for this book on twitter!!
I’m slowly getting out of my reading slump. Very slowly. How was your week re: reading??
