Thanks to @Bibliogeekery for bringing this delightfully weird and surprisingly funny short novel to my attention. I‘ve loved going through it and can only wish the above mentioned book existed. But if you‘re looking for an #ownvoices #trans experimental story full of heart and strangeness, this is the book for you. I‘m only up to letter D and can‘t wait to see what the rest of the alphabet brings. Also, shoutout to my library for having this!

Bibliogeekery Oh, lovely! So glad you're reading and enjoying this little gem! #transbooks #queerbooks 1d

Okay, this was lovely. Romance/erotica technically, I think, but what a plot! Felt a bit like an Agatha Christie, actually, but more ghosts, more racial, gender, and sexual diversity, and way more kissing. I was invested in both leads, the side characters were nicely fleshed out, and if the mysteries weren't always particularly surprising, I still had fun getting there. And a good length as well! Pretty excellently paced! I'll have to read more!

ssleif #queerbooks #transbooks This was a solid A, I think. if a few things had been more exciting or less predictable then maybe it would have gotten an a+, but I really had nothing more I wanted or could ask for from this book. It had me engaged the whole time. 👌👍 2w

It was lovely. Not particularly long or complex, but a nice period romance/erotica with distinct and compelling leads. B+ If you think it's up your alley, it probs is. #queerbooks #transbooks

This was a gorgeous read! A queer trans woman is grieving the death of her best friend and unrequited love. She compiles an encyclopedia of the characters of her friend's favourite TV show to process her grief. Each entry weaves reflections on her friend into descriptions of the characters. Hazel Jane Plante created a complex fictional television show just to write this book! So smart, so tender, so nerdy. #transbooks #queerbooks

Lindy Hey! I must read this! This must be the Hazel that Onjana writes about in 3w
Bibliogeekery @Lindy oh! Oh I don't know that one! I'll add it to my list! Thanks 3w

This was a lovely collection of poetry by a two-spirited Indigenous trans woman. It's powerful and gritty and sweet and all other unnameable things that make up meaningful poetry. #transbooks #2spiritbooks #poetry

My niece told me to read this and so I did. It is a cute graphic novel that delves into the lives of a bunch of people playing in a soccer league. There are diverse characters - including trans and queer kids - and lovely themes of friendship. I would have read a separate book on each kid - it felt like it jumped around a bit more than I would have liked. I did quite enjoy it! #middlereaders #queerbooks #transbooks

Nute I love when we get entertainment recommendations from the younger people in our lives. My niece recommends books on occasion and my nephew enjoys advising me on keeping current with music!😃 2mo

What a treat: a new Ivan Coyote book! It's a collection of personal essays, anecdotes, and other memoir-ish stuff, with an often elegiac tone. Ivan writes about talking to schools about anti-bullying, being in the world as a queer non-binary person, queer elders, travel, family, and random human connections. Although they write about tough stuff and do not suffer oppressive bullshit, this collection leaves me feeling like I can face the world.

My weekends are Sunday and Monday, so I am enjoying my "Sunday" morning on my porch with tea, granola, and a new #QueerBook of fantasy short stories by trans femme writers. #TransBooks
