New Episode: We discuss Crimson (also known as Last Night in Nuuk) by Niviaq Korneliussen (translated by Anna Halager)
Absolutely stunning and masterful narrative of coming of age in a world you don‘t quite understand. Vuong uses this intimate work as a way to bridge many gaps; the distance between his immigrant mother‘s and his own world, the ever growing space felt between different racial and socioeconomic experiences in modern America, and the human experience of growing into your sexuality in one‘s adolescence. #queerlit #qpocauthors
My haul from Malaprop‘s in Asheville, NC!! I spent so much money they gave me a free ARC. My blind date with a book turned out to be Blood Child by Octavia E. Butler and HOLY SHIT DID I CHOOSE WELL! I‘ve never read anything by her before and now I want them all. I can‘t wait to start on the rest of the stack #bookhaul #ncbookspt1 #queerlit #lgbt+
Have any fellow Littens been as obsessed with this #Netflix show as I have been? I‘m crazy about it! I‘m done with season one but I want to read, watch, listen to ANYTHING with a similar vibe- 80s, Ball Culture, LGBT, etc. Any recommendations? 💗 #LGBT #Pose #Queer #QueerLit #LGBTQ
This book started off pretty slow for me. I just couldn't get into it right off the bat, even though it starts off with some pretty serious action. I felt like it took too long to really get to know the characters, and also maybe took too long to feel like there was going to be any hope of them resolving the problem they are up against. Once I got to know the characters, I did love them. And I really enjoyed the world created by the author. ⬇️
Physical TBR for #queerlitreadathon. Starts June 2. I'm including The Disasters, which I am already reading, bc the main character mentions that he has dated males and females in the past. I might try to save Red, White, and Royal Blue for #romanceathon in the middle of the month. As stated before, I don't intend to get through all books pictured. It just allows me some variety and choice without buying more books!
Anyone else joining?
My digital TBR for #queerlitreadathon - June 2-8. These are books I already owned copies of on my #nook account
As stated in my other post, I don't intend to try to read everything on my TBR. It's just a list for me to choose from with books I already had access to 😊
I think I'm using readathons this month specifically to try to read books I already own
#Scribd #audiobook TBR for the #queerlitreadathon #queerlit
I am not sure that I will be completing a bingo on the board, but am just using this readathon to read more queer lit, since it's not a subgenre I read often.especially since it coincides with the start of pride month!
I will also be posting a digital TBR and physical TBR. *I'm not going to be able to read all of these - just giving myself options between what I own/library loans/scribd
So...I might be doing 5 readathons, 3 Litsy buddy reads, and running the #BandNYAbookclub at my store in the month of June...with a full time job and 2 part time jobs. Pray for me, I guess? Lol. I'm not taking any of the readathons too seriously, so I guess we'll see what happens
