i MEAN, hello.
so as you can probably tell, this post will follow the current theme I’ve adopted of all posts being a mess. Don’t get your hopes up, ladies and gents.
We all know we like a little bit of the gay around here, and I don’t blame you. PRIDE month for me hasn’t really been that GAY for me yet, so here I am, making it MUCH. GAYER.
GOAL OF THE POST: share some of the gay books I would literally give my soul up for, and also mention some new~~~ purchases that I couldn’t stop myself from buying the other week/ as well as a couple days ago. so. let’s… go do that.
WHAT IVE LEARNT: I should 1000% not write blurbs to books. Or, I 1000% should.
(that sounds very dramatic)
ARISTOTLE AND DANTE DISCOVER THE SECRETS OF THE UNIVERSE.
It’s so worth the long title, I promise you. It’s worth it a million percent.
one of my favourite things about it? it’s not set NOW. It’s set in the 80’s? late 80’s? and it’s not just tragic white-boys either, they’ve both got Mexican parents and it’s SO MUCH DEEPER than just gay boys, bi boys in America in the 80s. It’s TRULY beautiful and i cannot even properly joke about this book BECAUSE IT MAKES ME SO EMOTIONAL I CAN ONLY SCREAM, OK?
i cry so much at this book you have no idea.
full on snot.
OG disaster gays? I mean?
I’m going to reiterate what I always say: dry, witty, english humour and scones. what more could you need?
oh, fantasy? check?
a sequel coming out in a few months? CHECK OH MY GOSH.
REVIEW HERE: or, turns out i never published one? disaster gay blogger? check.
SIX OF CROWS / CROOKED KINGDOM.

RED, WHITE, ROYAL BLUE.
This is a newbie but IT’S MINE, JUST YOU TRY AND TAKE IT FROM ME, ALRIGHT?
so so so so funny and witty. so so so in love with this book. alternate reality where Trump doesn’t exist? even better. I mean, it’s a perfect AU, honestly. I’d live there anytime. Seriously. Someone take me there any time… any…. time? anyone? okay. guess not then.
THE ETERNALS PART TWO
jesus take the wheel i’m emotional again.
I can’t remember how many times I’ve read this book. Like ARI + DANTE this book is SO SO SO important. It’s so much more than what meets the eye and just… breaks my heart and will continue to do so for eternity. it’s just plain cruel.
WOULD THIS EVEN BE MY BLOG IF I DIDN’T MENTION IT?
thxxxxx may for reccing me this book about a billion years ago.
QUEENS OF GEEK.
This is one of those, happy-gay books that you can just breeze through. it’s not a heavy book, but it tackles a lot of things like anxiety, bi-phobia/erasure and has an asian bi character and a ‘fat’ character as well. It focusses on so many things, like what I mentioned above, but also things like friendship that make it less ROMANCE!!! based, which I love.
REVIEW HOPEFULLY HERE. (MINI REVIEW)
