Before I really start in on this review, I have to say that I cannot wait for the next book in the series. The epilogue of this book has me so on edge and worried that I need to know what happens next. I NEED to know, Rita. Like. Medically need to know. I am worried and I have feelings and I have questions! I HAVE SO MANY QUESTIONS!
Have you ever gone into reading a book expecting one thing but then the book is nothing like your expectations but in the best possible way? Silver-Lined Secrets, by Aleksander Petit was exactly that for me. From reading the synopsis I thought it was going to be an action packed young adult book about learning to be a spy; what the reader gets from this beautiful story is more of a comfort spy young adult novel. Oh, and did I mention it is queer AF?
Age gap? Women in the gaming industry? Betrayal in the form of intellectual property theft? And it’s Sapphic? Sign me up please and thank you! When I first read the synopsis for Leveling Up, by Jazzy Mitchell, I cannot overstate just how interested I was in the premise of this book, but was ultimately a little disappointed.
Have you ever read a book where you’re about a quarter of the way through and you’ve already determined that it is now one of your all-time favorite books and that you’re going to recommend it to absolutely every single one of your friends and anyone who is looking for book recommendations? Well, if you haven’t had that experience then I cannot wait until you read Bloody Spade!
I’ve missed all of you in the time I’ve been away from The Queerblr. And lord was 2021 A Y E A R. But you all know that. What you don’t know is: Effective January 19th, The Queerblr will officially be back from hiatus!
If you’re new here, you might not know that I am a sucker for fairy tales, especially when they are LGBTQ+ retellings of the fabled classics. If you’re an avid reader of The Queerblr, then you absolutely know how much of a sucker I am for fairy tale retellings!
There’s nothing quite as comforting as dipping back into the cozy fictional town of Swanley, Massachusetts in Valentine Wheeler’s second installment in their Swanley Signs series, Give Way. The familiar setting and characters make falling into Kevin and Awais’ story effortless and enjoyable.
Buckle up, readers, because SJ Whitby is going to take you on an emotional, queer, action packed ride in the second installment of their Cute Mutants series, Cute Mutants Vol 2: Young, Gifted & Queer.
For all my nerdery that I ascribe to, the X-Men franchise has never been one that I’ve ever considered myself at all interested in. Until now. But they’re not really x-men, are they? No. They’re better. Who am I referring to? The new formed vigilante superheroes of Cute Mutants, Vol 1: Mutant Pride, by SJ Whitby, that’s who! Cause they’re not just new, quite literally new to their powers, they’re definitely cute, and queer, and diverse af.
