Are you looking for a quick Sapphic graphic novel? Do you like witches? What about a snakes with golden retriever energy? Well, if any of that sounds like a good time to you, then you’re definitely going to want to pick up Doughnuts and Doom, by Balazs Lorinczi!
This week we’re doing something a little different! Instead of telling you my thoughts on one book, I’m going to promote eight books in one post! That’s right–The Queerblr has partnered with I Heart SapphFIC to promote eight wonderful books for Pride 2022.
Today is the Queerblr’s stop on the Odder Still book tour! And I am so glad to be here! When the author reached out to me to see if I’d be interested in participating, I knew I was going to be hooked on this book from the moment I read the back of it!
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?
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!
I have enjoyed every second of reading Mage & Demon Queen! This manga is beautifully drawn, side splittingly funny, and has a fairly in depth story hidden within its panels.
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.
Mooncakes, by Suzanne Walker & Wendy Xu is a magical graphic novel that will cast a spell over your heart. This self-contained story follows a diverse cast of characters and pulls the reader right into the magical setting. Walker & Xu have crafted a touching story that weaves magic into the modern realm through the tale of a capable hard of hearing witch, a non-binary werewolf learning their own innate magics, a science minded best friend, and delightfully supportive and queer grandmas.
