4 LGBT+ Books I Need to Read ASAP

There are so many books I haven’t read yet but need to read! One thing that always makes me want to read a book is LGBT+ representation or diversity in general, and I’ve read a lot of those already, but I always want more! So here are 4 books that are on my TBR that are queer and I really want to read. There are of course more on my TBR than only these ones so let me know if you’d like a part 2 of this post!

Somehow this post turned into a bi-rep post but hey, I like that!

Insta-Loving Books | In which I talk about books I fell head-over-heels in love with from page 1

Do you ever read one of those books that when you’re only a few pages in you already know you are going to love it? Because I do. Sometimes I start a book and I just insta-crush on it. SO BAD.

This post was inspired by my current read, which is The Exact Opposite of Okay by Laura Steven. I just started reading it today and I’ve just started it and couldn’t stop. I love it so much (as I’m writing this, I’ve actually put it down, but I’ve read a third of it in about half an afternoon.) Anyway, I wanted to talk about what made me fall in love with these books (and authors) instantly and why!

My Most Anticipated Books of 2018

I realize this is not exactly the most original topic to write about, I’ve seen about a hundred post like this one but you guys told me on twitter to write it so here I am! My list of most anticipated releases consists mainly of V.E. Schwab books (which sadly do not all come out this year :P) but I have plenty of others too! Most of these are from authors I’ve read before, that is because I tend to wait a little until there are more reviews so I can make up my mind about others. Anyway, let’s get into it!

10 Books that Surprised me in 2017 | The Best of 2017

Since the year is almost over, it’s time to recap all the books I’ve read in 2017. I’ve read so many amazing books this year it’s hard to create a top 10, but I’m going to try anyway. These books are not only books that surprised me (in a good way) but also books I loved so much I’d reread them right this second if I had all the time in the world (which I don’t).

All of these I’ve rated at least 4 stars and I have loved them to pieces! These books will count down to my favourite book of this year (why am I doing this to myself???). So before I start rambling too much about how much I love these books, let’s go on to the list!

10 Books that Disappointed me in 2017

I’ve read a lot of books this year, some of them really hyped by the bookish community and others not so much. A lot of the hyped books I really enjoyed but others really disappointed me and didn’t live up to the hype. So in this post, I’m going to give you my top 10 books that disappointed me in 2017!

Just a note, none of these books are bad (well… except one), they were usually not how I expected them to be or I couldn’t connect to the story. I rated most of them 3 stars, which is mediocre, but not bad. So if you love these books, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that! I’m happy you do!

Predicting my Rating for 5 Books on my TBR | How Well am I at Estimating?

I had this fun idea to predict my rating for a book before I read it, so that’s what I’m going to try to do today. I’m going to pick 5 books on my TBR that I want to read really soon, and I’m going to try to estimate what my rating will be based on the synopsis. And then, hopefully, after a month or so, I’ll do another post comparing my estimated rating to my final rating! I’m really curious to see how well I know my own reading tastes and how well I can predict what I will love and what I don’t. So let’s get started!
