A lovely bi-for-bi romance about two oddballs with social anxiety finding each other and making a little found family for themselves, their queer (ace and gay, respectively) best friends, a couple dogs, and a quirky little French kid. Just so lovely, there's no other way to describe it. #QueerBooks #LGBTQBooks #LGBTQ #BisexualBooks #Romantsy

Finished this while my baby played w/ her blocks! There's a lot of set up in this 1st volume about a dystopian high school on the moon for delinquent students; the plot doesn't get going until near the end. But aesthetically & artistically I loved this so much I didn't care. It feels simultaneously futuristic yet retro, punk and outer space influenced. The dialogue is sharp and funny. I can't wait to see where the three girls go in the next book!

Bathtime reading much deserved and needed after a day with a grumpy teething baby and my partner spending time with a friend who came from out of town. So far the first story in this collection has made me laugh out loud twice, so that's a good sign. #QueerBooks #LGBTQBooks

A gorgeous character-driven collection of interconnected graphic short stories about four Black women in the Bronx, focusing on their hair routines as a starting point for aspects of their lives: dating, mental health, work, friendship, and family relationships. The art is beautiful w/ colouring to depict the mood. The details of the hair routines were impeccable, clearly love and intimate knowledge went into them. This book has queer rep too!

Hmm, I am considering DNFing this one, even though it's the January pick for #lgbtbookclub. I am not emotionally connecting with the story or characters at all. I liked the writing at first, but I guess something about it is not drawing me in. Almost 12 hours more is a lot when you're already feeling meh! Thoughts anyone? #QueerBooks

TracyReadsBooks Honestly, I enjoyed it but it didn‘t knock my socks off. Entertaining enough but not a book I dwelled on when I was done reading. 1mo
CaseyTheCanadianLesbrarian @TracyReadsBooks Hmm that is helpful thanks! I think I'd finish it if I was 75% in, as you say it's entertaining enough but not for how long it is! 1mo
Lucy_Anywhere I didn‘t so much DNF this one, more just put it down and never picked it up again - and then it went back to the library. It clearly didn‘t really grab me either! 1mo

Clare-Dragonfly I loved this one but if you‘re not connecting with the characters by 10 or 20% in, I don‘t think it‘s going to get any better for you. Unless the promise of a trans character later on draws you? 😆 She‘s awesome but a fairly minor character. 1mo
CaseyTheCanadianLesbrarian @Lucy_Anywhere glad it's not just me! 1mo
CaseyTheCanadianLesbrarian @Clare-Dragonfly ooh is it the secretary from the women's association who ends up being trans? I thought there was a clue at one point when she knew some "boy's" magic 1mo
Clare-Dragonfly @CaseyTheCanadianLesbrarian Yesssss! That‘s her! ❤️ 1mo
CaseyTheCanadianLesbrarian @Clare-Dragonfly okay now I can rest! 1mo

I'm starting the January pick for #LGBTbookclub a bit early since my hold on the library audiobook came in much quicker than I expected. I really like it so far, it has a dreamy fairy tale vibe but like the old school Brothers Grimm kind, dark and witchy. The #audiobook voice actor is very good. #QueerBooks #LGBTQBooks @AbigailJaneBlog

readswellwithothers I listened to this early in the year and I thought it was incredible! The narration was so, so good. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did! 1mo

I‘m so glad I finally got around to reading this. This is an excellent book! I devoured it! Bonus points for being non-binary & queer friendly. Loved this one! Highly recommended!! #LGBTQIA #queerbooks

This fun, bittersweet novella is a smart genre mashup: a bit noir 1940s mystery, a magical fantasy, angels and demons, and a doomed (?) sapphic romance. It feels like an unfair critique to say you wanted more from a novella, but I would have liked a bit more room to get to know the characters and for the mystery to unfold. Polk does a great job creating a moody period piece appropriate atmosphere. I liked the Chicago details and the 40s slang.
