#1 There’s a movie I got Hidden Figures and still need to read it! It follows the recently deceased mathematician that wasn’t taken seriously at NASA because racism. I did see the problematic clip of the “white savior” breaking down the segregated sign in the bathroom, so i’m not too thrilled. I do want to read it, but I wish these women could be seens as strong on their own without needing that kind of white ally.
#2 The (Old) Hype There used to be a lot of well-deserved hype for With The Fire On High but it never seemed like my kind of book until quarantine happened and they’re all my kind of book.
#3 It’s A Classic I haven’t read that many classics since high school, about three 1/2 years ago. I tried to get back in with 100 Years Of Solitude, and while I see it’s merits and it’s surprisingly readable, I don’t vibe with it right now.
#4 I Loved It In High School I went through an intense Ray Bradbury phase in those years.
#5 A Friend Rec’d It I was on the fence about Reading Lolita In Tehran until someone pointed it out. I do love books about books.
#6 Won A Giveaway Sophie Cameron hosted a twitter giveaway for Out Of The Blue and The last Bus To Everland. I love taking a chance on gay books! Especially since Out Of The Blue is about a fallen angel and I love Supernatural, R.I.P.
#7 Ace rep I’m always dying for more ace rep! I hate being so underrep’d, as it leads to misconceptions and a sheer lack of knowledge. Summer Bird Blue is about a grieving girl coming to terms with her asexuality.
#8 It’s Recommended By Jesse @ Bowties And Books I have yet to go wrong with their recommendations. Patsy is an f/f and nonbinary book that they love, the dual story of Patsy leaving her child for New York and her child Tru.
#9 Mega Gay Author I read Once And Future a while ago and keep hearing about Amy rose’s other books., one of them set on the lost coast of my beloved California, but I could only find Echo After Echo, about murder on a stage.
#10 Was looking For Another Book To Buy When I bought once And Future, I was in the bookshop looking for I Wish You All The Best. They unfortunately didn’t have IWYATB so I found the next gay thing.
