An incredible book! While it started lighter, with Bridget Jones-esque dry wit about (lesbian) dating life in London, the tone went darker as it explored Julia's first relationship with a woman. This girlfriend turns out to be controlling and emotionally abusive. It's painful to watch, which is a testament to Davies' writing. I also loved the friends, family, and job portions of the book. It had me laughing out loud throughout. Highly recommended!

Reading this book on my covered back porch since it is somehow raining and sunny at the same time. Also, this book is going somewhere dark, the woman Julia is dating is showing classic signs of an emotionally abusive partner. #QueerBooks

Reading and lunch! I laughed out loud at this:

"Nevertheless, [Leon and I] stayed together, right up until he dumped me just after graduation because he wanted to 'travel the world' and be 'free of ties'. He moved to Peckham three months later and started a graduate training scheme in management consultancy."

I thought I would love this book, but I guess not! It's just not pulling me in. #QueerBooks

Branwen I bailed on this one too! Just couldn't connect to any of the characters or the story. 😖 2w

This was a powerful collection of short stories. A definite content warning for sexual assault for people considering reading this one! Gay has woven such a variety of different narratives that centre Haiti or Haitian people, from the mystical to the mundane. Well worth the read! #queerbooks

Well ultimately this #sciencefiction novel was disappointing. I appreciate the very unique world-building and the fact that casually all the characters are (queer) women, but in the end I just didn't enjoy this very much? You're kept in the dark for 9/10ths of the book with this character who lost her memory and by the time you find out the twist, it was too late for me to care. I also never connected with any of the characters. #QueerBooks

Steampunk, queer, witty, and fantastical homage to Sherlock Holmes. This book is wacky and original and creative and a mind-bending blast. #queerbooks #holmes
