S4S – LGBTQ+ TBR

Hellooooo…

Today is the last #SixforSunday celebrating all things Pride. But let’s be honest, my life is all about celebrating pride, so expect to see some more things about it in the future! 

A quick thank you from me to say thank you to everyone who has suggested books for me to read, or characters for me to discover, in the past month or so. I’m all about diversifying my reading pile, so please keep suggesting me books! 

Today’s #SixforSunday is:

What’s still on my LGBTQ+ TBR pile!?

So these are either newly recommended books to me, or books I own that I still haven’t got round to reading!

I already own 2 of these, I need to get to buying/borrowing the others! 

See you next week for March’s #SixforSunday theme of  ‘An ode to…’, starting with your favorite author.

S4S – Characters I’d Go On A Date With…

Evening #SixforSunday pals,

How are we all on this fair Sunday? It’s been very sunny (but chilly) in Newcastle today. I’ve been for my breakfast, cried at my book on the bus home (standard Elliott craic really) and have scheduled all of next week’s blog posts… I know, productive OR WHAT?!

Today’s #SixforSunday post was one which took me some time to think of because I had TOO MANY ANSWERS and then was brutal and had NO answers… so bear with me! 

Today we’re talking:

Six characters I’d like to go on a date with

Now I’m listing characters, regardless of their sexuality (because let’s be frank, they’re fictional so it won’t happen anyway!)

  1. Izzy O’Neill from The Opposite of Okay.
    Yes, she’d frighten the life out of little old me, but she’s HILARIOUS and I have such a weakness for people who make me laugh.
  2. Kaz bloody Brekker from Six of Crows and Crooked Kingdom.
    Do I even need to explain this one?!
  3. Luvian Fen from State of Sorrow.
    I love this sarcastic, charming, witty twat man 
  4. Jin from Rebel of the Sands trilogy.
    JIN THO. I mean, I can’t NOT want to go on a date with him. I think he is one of my biggest fictional crushes in the world.
  5. Amani from Rebel of the Sands trilogy.
    She’s badass, she’s brilliant, she’s funny – what more could I possibly want?!
  6. Emery from The Paper Magician trilogy
    I adore this man. I miss him so much. I may have to read The Paper Magician again soon. 

What about you? Who are some of your fictional crushes? I have ALL KINDS of other people on my list… but those, I think, are my final 6. Ask me again in a few months and I’m sure it would look VERY different!

S4S – Fave LGBTQ+ characters

Good afternoon friends! 

How are we all this fine (but chilly) Sunday?! I hope you are all well. I was in London yesterday for the Scholastic Book Feast blogger event (see my post coming next week for more details!) and today I’m just chilling. 

You’re not here to hear how my weekend has been though, you’re here for #SixforSunday I know your priorities! 

Today’s #SixforSunday prompt is:

Favourite LGBTQ+ characters

Surprisingly, all of my fave LGBT+ characters are all male characters! 

  1. Jack from Jack of Hearts and Other Parts by L.C.Rosen
    He just made me laugh SO much. I loved him. I MAY have to reread this book sometime soon. 
  2. Simon AND Blue from Simon vs the Homosapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli
    I couldn’t choose between them, so I get to choose them both. 
  3. Aaron from More Happy than Not by Adam Silvera
    I just wanna hug him. I’ve BEEN there. Poor Aaron
  4. A from Someday/Every Day/Another Day by David Levithan
    Tbh, I could have chosen ANY of David Levithan’s characters, but A is one of those characters who has stuck with me for a few years now. I really love the character of A.
  5. Aled from Radio Silence by Alice Oseman
    I remember reading this book and LOVING Aled so much. This is another book I need to reread sometime soon. Would DEFINITELY recommend.
  6. Jimmy from I Was Born for This by Alice Oseman
    I loved Jimmy. In fact, I loved MOST of the characters in this book and Alice Oseman does SUCH GOOD diverse characters. 

So… since the men are repping here… can you all shout your fave LGBTQ+ characters at me? I need more of them in my life!
