This tag never fails to make me very very happy to write.
Even though… it’s currently three and a half thousand words and it’s still going. I feel like it deserves it though – where did 2020 even go?? It’s just insane that we are six months through 2020.. which has been an interesting year to say the least. At the same time, a lot has happened!
The Mid-Year Book Freakout Tag is actually the best tag in the blogosphere, and I’m excited to get into it today!! I did this last year and I can’t wait to actually be prepared and have this post in advance in 2020!! It’s very long… who knows how long my yearly recap will be… I don’t want to think about that. Also! Last year I wrote it like an hour before publishing…. this has been half started in my drafts/scheduled since the END OF MAY. how’s that for a glow up ;))
I also love two things about this tag: a) how literally so many people come together and do this tag every year WITHOUT FAIL, and b) how it improves my mood? I’ve been working on it for a while and it’s SO LONG OMG (3.8k…..) but I loved every second of it!! (Even the formatting which is my favourite thing about blogging and also my worst nightmare.)
Thank you to Olivia for the nomination! (I was planning on doing this anyway…. but it’s nice to know someone thought of me!!)
It makes me REALLY happy to look at my bookshelf.. is that weird? Anyway, I do, and I also happen to own a lot of queer books.
I wish I owned more/a better ratio but if I did this post couldn’t happen so maybe it’s a good thing? I’m clutching at straws here. Anyway, there’s enough to make one (originally two part but i made it one really long one!! – 2.2k wOW) massive post where I rank them all – from favourite to least favourite. I haven’t seen anyone else do this at the time of writing, but if you have, link it below!!
I mention this book so much so I thought that, of course, the obvious thing to do is to write a review on it.
And shove it in your faces to read even more. That’s an excellent plan!! (It sounded better in my head I promise). (and to that ONE PERSON who reads this… sorry.)
No, but in all serious, (which, tbh, is very hard for me on my blog) today I thought for Pride month, I’d review a backlist book which I completely adore and that I don’t think I’ve talked enough about – Ari and Dante. I hope that if you haven’t picked it up that you get a chance to try it soon, since I know it means so much to me and many others.
**book cover taken from goodreads as always, photo of book was taken by me :))
(and yes, I only did one post NOT queer-related but hey!! i needed something to start this post!!)
Today I have a post that I’ve been wanting to do for a while… the Pride Flag book tag!! And yes, the fact that it rhymes makes me extraordinarily happy 😉
I saw this around a lot last year and I cannot WAIT to get into it now. And yes, my colour-coded loving heart has matched book covers with the respective colour prompt. You’re welcome 😉 These are mostly books I didn’t talk about here so enjoy!! Some new-but-not-really-they’re-still-the-same books!!!
