Diverse Reads & To Be Reads of the Week #20

The title says “of the week”, but I keep making one post like this a month… God, I’m pretty sure all I do on this blog is complaining about how little I read these days… It’s just really tragic, okay? Last week I had to trick myself with some trashy new adult romance books, just so I would finally finish a book. ://

This week was better, though. I actually read some great stuff! And two books that I had on my TBR for basically years. 😮 So that’s gotta count for something, right?

Just please keep your fingers crossed for me that I won’t forget how to read again next week…

Waiting for: March 2019

I watched How to Train Your Dragon 3 today and I cried so much, I deserve something easier to deal with now. Which made writing this post a perfect idea. Very relaxing, not gonna lie. The only downside is, it reminded me how many books I’m excited about in March!

Ugh, I hate waiting…

One of the books listed here today I already mentioned in my post about January-June 2019 diverse releases, but oh boy, I had so many more to talk about!

As always, I also want to remind you guys that Charlotte & I have a blog called Reads Rainbow that is dedicated solely to LGBT media. So check out this March releases post over there as well – it’s only for books coming in the first week, because there are just Too Many to fit in one post!!

Diverse Reads & To Be Reads of the Week #19

Okay, yes, I haven’t written one of those posts in a while because I actually haven’t read much this year yet. The first week was great – actually, maybe even less than a week… And then I kind of went into another reading slump. New year, new me? Not in this house apparently.

So yeah, I’m gonna list all the gay shit I’ve read this year so far, not just this past week. There is not going to be a lot going on in this list, guys… But! On the plus side! (Well, a plus side for me personally, at least.) There are going to be two (2) Polish books!

I should mention, I suppose, that I’ve been digging into polish history and trying to find gay authors from my own country. It’s a slow process but I did find some good stuff already and even managed to buy a few for myself! It’s especially cool to me because those are all books and authors from the last century!

Anyway, I will one day make a post about this, either here or on Reads Rainbow, but for now, let’s focus on what I read recently.

So you’re in the mood for lgbt books with the found family trope

Found family is one of my favourite tropes and I’m definitely not alone in that. I mean, I actually know for sure because I was running a poll on twitter to figure out what my theme should be today – and most of y’all voted for found families.

And so here we are. But of course I had to make it harder for myself and decided to only rec books with gay characters. Which, depending how you look at it, might have been my best idea yet. I was pretty close to just reccing Les Mis otherwise and being done with it…

Let’s dive in!
