Good morning, good afternoon, or good evening, friends! I hope you are all reading some awesome books. And if you aren’t, well, I hope that I can recommend you some great books in today’s Book Recommendations post!
On the third Monday of every month, I share some Book Recommendations that pertain to a theme! I’ll tell you all a little bit about the book, what I liked about them (because I always only recommend books I have read and liked!), and give you all the links so you can add them to your list of books to read.
Just a quick reminder: I’m currently on hiatus from Twitter and don’t have access to my account (just so I don’t procrastinate)! If you need to contact me, contact me via email or my Instagram.
In my last recap post, I mentioned how I was going to share with you ‘books for your discoursing heart’ and ‘books that will make you laugh’. And whilst I’ll be posting them in September and October respectively, I really wanted to share some historical fiction books that I really liked, but, with a twist. Read More »
Hello friends! How are you all today?
It’s so good to be able to write a book recommendations post; I really missed writing these. Unfortunately I was on hiatus during all of Pride Month, so I want to make up for that today. Although Pride Month is a time to celebrate our identities and highlight the struggles that LGBTQIA+ individuals experience, it can also be a very difficult month. And that’s why, I think, books with characters that have LGBTQIA+ identities are so important. It’s so important for us to read these stories, and to open ourselves, to listen, to learn, to understand, and to share these stories too. In today’s Book Recs post, I wanted to share four books with all of you.

Before this year, I never read middle grade books. Being in my mid-20’s, I knew I was well beyond the target audience for YA; I felt way too old for middle grade books, felt like it would be too juvenile, felt like it wouldn’t be something I’d like. I was a massive skeptic. And then I read Flying Lessons and Other Stories.

Hello friends! I hope all of you are well. ❤
Originally, I was going to do a whole book recommendation post on amazing and well-developed romances. But then, while creating the post, I realized that I don’t actually like that many romance books. As someone who falls under the ace (asexual)-spectrum, it was like the stars aligned in my mind: I only like romances that have a close friendship or strong emotional connection preceding the romance – it had never occurred to me before that.

Every March is Women’s History Month; a time for us to remember, celebrate, and commemorate the contributions and achievements women have made in history and in modern society.
I chose this month’s Book Recs theme to center around feminist reads not only because it’s Women’s History Month, but also because I understand that, for those who want to learn about feminism, it can feel like a daunting and overwhelming task. Where do I start? What’s a good start for an individual interested in feminism? Who do I listen to? Though I cannot answer those questions – as feminism can look different to different groups of people and cultures – my advice is to, a) begin with history, b) read widely, c) listen to a diversity of authors/activists/academics, and d) ensure your feminism is intersectional.
