Reading Rec: It Takes Two to Tumble

June is LGBT+ Pride Month! That means LGBT+ book reviews, which means books I probably would have read on my own, but now, I’m making myself review them consistently. *drops voice* You don’t know how little follow-through I have while my house is a construction zone. Anywho, I am a LGBT+ romance fan, so today’sContinue reading “Reading Rec: It Takes Two to Tumble”

Reading Rec: The Prince and the Dressmaker

It’s June, which means it’s LGBT+ Pride Month. I decided that my June reviews will focus on LGBT+ fiction I’ve read lately. This really isn’t a stretch for me since 75% of what I read has queer characters and was probably written by a queer author. My first recommendation is a wonderful graphic novel IContinue reading “Reading Rec: The Prince and the Dressmaker”
