My December TBR plus #currentlyreading The Deep by Rivers Solomon and Tarnished Are The Stars by @rosieethor The Deep is about the decedents of the people captured on slave ships that jumped overboard, a society that can't bear to remember their past and gives all of the memories to one merperson a generation. Tarnished Are The Stars is set in a future where technology is banned, least humanity fall into the trap of destroying the planet- but our main queers use it to help people with medical problems. #amreading #bookstagram #ilovebooks #lgbt
THE SEMESTER IS FINALLY OVER I’M FREEEE I also have some good personal news; since I did well at JC this semester I can go to state in January. There’s been a lot of setbacks, but it looks like I’ve cleared them. I won’t entirely believe it until I have my own apartment and am going to class. If you want to help, I’d appropriate any $3 or more Ko-fi donations here
On to the good gay content!
Tarnished Are The Stars by Rosiee Thor, Rep: F/F, AroAce
The girls don’t meet until halfway through, but you can see how they’d complement and clash. Anna would do anything to help people with Tarnish- a heart disease that requires illegal tech to stay alive. She’s the Technician, an outlaw that tends to mechanical hearts called TICCERS. Her grandfather’s the town’s doctor, and she would’ve been one too, if she hadn’t accidentally amputated a limb, scarring her for life.
Nathaniel, the Commissioner’s son, is determined to prove himself to his father by catching the Technician. He’s convinced that his father must love him deep down if he broke his own law to provide him a TICCER. But what if the Technician has answers to the things he’s been too ashamed to ask?
Eliza is a spy for the queen, determined to win the Queen’s favour and be made heir. She’s been engaged to Nathaniel, the queen’s grandson, as a ruse to spy on the Commissioner and speed op Earth Adjacent’s terraforming process.
This is an #Ownvoices book, and @RosieeThor is a great place to go for queer advocacy. Her book is probably the first book I’ve read because of following them on twitter.
