Spotlight on: Never Contented Things | Written by Gail

Never Contended Things SpotlightHappy pride! I hope yโ€™all are having a nice pride month so far! Today is also the last day of my semester, so shitโ€™s been crazy. That said, Iโ€™ve read a lot of queer books recently. Recently, as in over the past couple of months, or as in over the past year, either works. I made a post summarizing my recs for this month on tumblr, and you can view it here. In whatever posts I manage to write this month, I want to spotlight a couple of LGBTQA+ books that I love and simply aren’t getting the love they deserve.

Browsing Bloggers Bookshelves | Heather @ The Frozen Library

bbsBrowsing Bloggers Bookhselves | Heather
I’m very excited to bring this series back again as it seems to be a reader favourite. Today I have the opportunity to browse Heather’s bookshelves. She blogs at The Frozen Library.

Her shelves are possbily some of the tidiest I’ve got to browse AND its all in one bookcase which makes my life easier. You can read her post browsing my shelves here.

Want to know how to take part?

We’ll share photographs of our (main) bookshelves with each other so the other person can “browse” them and pick out books they’d recommend, books they suggest to avoid, or books they’d love to read.

I’ve loved doing this and can’t wait to do more but please contact via Twitter DMs or emails. I do have a list of these ready so do anticipate it being a post to schedule for the future if you reach out. Unfortunately if you only reply to a tweet I’m more likely to lose it in the notifications, which I know has happened and I’m trying my best to go and find them…

Her hopes are that it’ll create a discussion space that could explore a normal topic for different areas of the world.

If you’re wanting to take part let Cam know. At the moment the Discussion Chain is taking part every two months so there is plenty of time for you to hop in!

Kathryn TroyGuest Post | Kathryn Troy
Curse of the Amber by Kathryn Troy ccame out yesterday! I was offered the chance to read and review it but I’m so behind with my current stack I had to do the smart thing and say no even though I’m really interested in the synopsis. (Full book and author information within the post)

But I also don’t know how to say no completely, so instead I have a wonderful guest post for you from Kathryn herself.

Keep reading to find out why bad books made Kathryn a better writer! Continue reading “How Bad Books Make Me a Better Writer | Guest Post from author Kathryn Troy”

I’ve known Della for a good while now thanks to Books and Tea and she blogs at BookishDella! I also know we have a very similar taste in books and I’ve been a bad influence on her recent purchases. I’m looking forward to seeing what her bookshelves are like.

I can’t wait to see her browse my shelves. You can read her post browsing my shelves here.
