So you might’ve noticed that I’m not doing my usual reviews anymore and I do have a reason for that: it’s that it takes so much freaking time! I have to stop reading and takes notes and I’m just not okay with that, I can’t stop myself from reading just to take notes, so I thought when I’d read 3-4 books, I’d do a recently read, or do a weekly wrap-up and just tell you what I read about, so I honestly hope you guys are okay with this. Or maybe you just don’t care.
Anyway, I’ve managed to finish three amazing books! These are all continuations of series! Who am I?! I’m actually continuing with series and just starting them. I’m truly someone. Okay, I’ll stop, let’s just get to what I’ve read.
So I’ve done this before, I already have a post like this one which you can access by clicking here but actually I wanted to make a new one and I do think that I’m gonna make new, updated ones, just because I think that it is super super important to promote underrated books, I’ll be bringing underrated books in many genres but right now it’s gonna be LGBTQ+ books. So what I consider to be an underrated book is if it has 1000 or less ratings on Goodreads and right now all of these books have less than 1k so I thought I’d share them with you guys if you’d wanna read them, I’m definitely interested in them!
Well. Let’s see!
OMG! Hi everyone! I can’t believe I have to write this so soon! This month is oooover! WHY?? It’s too soon!
Anyway, I’m here to do my October wrap-up, which, if you didn’t know, means that I’m telling you about the books I’ve managed to read this month! And…I’m not complaining, okay?? I’ve read so freaking many books this month! Plus I’ve also read A storm of swords which is over 1,000 pages, thus making it my longest book I’ve ever read, but I did it! It’s crazy! Anyway, let’s get to it!
Under Fire (Fairbridge #1) series Rowdy Parrot Limited Published June 3rd 2019 Paperback 252 pages Goodreads
The quirky little city of Fairbridge is about to explode at the intersection of sex, religion and politics.
Nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains, Fairbridge is home to a sizeable LGBT community; as well as American Evangelical Christianity’s brightest rising star.
The people have embraced the contrasts and paradoxes as part of life in the New South. Students, hillbillies, snake handling tent revivalists, a new police chief, a feminist lesbian bar owner, rich out-of-staters… they all call Fairbridge home.
So far, the uneasy peace has held. Paul Draker – a gay, former Combat Rescue Officer – returns to the city to live out his days peacefully in the woods of Western North Carolina. But as the edges of the peace begin to unravel, and the culture wars reignite, he is on a collision c
Helllooooo people! In this post I’ll be writing about books I read in the summer that I hated with passion.
Now, keep in mind that I did read these books this year, but it doesn’t mean that they were also published this year, just saying.
Oh, and also, something else. If these are you favorite books ever ever and forever, please do not take offense, I’m not trying to offend you, human, I’m just bored and I wanna rant about books I hated as one does.
Now, with that out of the way, let’s get to the books I hated this summer!… Continue Reading
Carry On (Simon Snow #1) YA FANTASY Published May 9th 2017 Paperback 522 pages
Simon Snow is the worst Chosen One who’s ever been chosen.
That’s what his roommate, Baz, says. And Baz might be evil and a vampire and a complete git, but he’s probably right.
Half the time, Simon can’t even make his wand work, and the other half, he starts something on fire. His mentor’s avoiding him, his girlfriend broke up with him, and there’s a magic-eating monster running around, wearing Simon’s face. Baz would be having a field day with all this, if he were here — it’s their last year at the Watford School of Magicks, and Simon’s infuriating nemesis didn’t even bother to show up.
Carry On – The Rise and Fall of Simon Snow is a ghost story, a love story and a mystery. It has just as much kissing and talking as you’d expect from a Rainb
Silence of Winter (Cromwell Chronicles #1) LGBT fantasy/paranormal Published December 12th 2018 Kindle format 290 pages
Normal is overrated. At least that’s what Oliver Cromwell tells himself when he’s being bullied for being different. He’s a lover of all things paranormal, and when his nose isn’t shoved into his sketchpad, drawing haunted houses and monsters, he and his best friend Bailey hang out in abandoned buildings and take long—very non-romantic—walks through graveyards looking for ghosts.
Everything changes when they actually find one.
Freaked out because he seems to be a sudden ghost magnet, Oliver befriends Mrs. Glass, a psychic who lives in the Victorian manor at the end of his street. With her help, he discovers his special bloodline and uncovers abilities that allow him to begin helping the ghosts move on. As if being sixteen wasn’t al
So I’ve been seeing these five star predictions videos/posts and I love love watching/reading them, I think they’re super interesting, especially when they make updates if they actually rated the books five stars.
So, to me a five stars has to really do IT! Like, actual everything.
I don’t want there one scene, one line that rubs me the wrong way, a five star book is usually a favorite forever, which I’ll wanna reread, lately I’ve really been into rereading, so yeah.
Anyway, I have five books here, I’ll show them to you guys, some of them haven’t been released just yet, but I’m totally sure that I’m gonna be giving these books five stars…well, we’ll see!

Writing to her lawyer from prison, she struggles to explain the unravelling events that led to her incarceration. It wasn’t just the constant surveillance from the cameras installed around the house, or the malfunctioning technology that woke the househol
