A Book Lover’s Guide to Celebrating Pride Month

It’s almost that time of the year again! The time where gorgeous pictures of rainbow book stacks take over the bookstagram community, booktubers recommend all their favourite queer novels, and bloggers participate in epic reading challenges. That’s right! It’s almost Pride Month! And gosh, I could not be more excited.

But to celebrate Pride Month, there are a few bookish things in particular that I always love doing! Hold onto your Pride capes and get ready to throw some glitter, folks, because things are about to get real queer over here!

Read some queer new releases!

There are always too many books to read and too little time, right?! These are just a few of the new and upcoming queer releases I’m looking forward to reading this Pride Month! They all sound spectacular, and I hope my little list helps you add some more LGBTQIAP+ to your to-read shelf.Read More »

Podcasts for Book Lovers

I am a MASSIVE FAN of podcasts. Seriously, I can’t get enough of them. I’m that weird person who doesn’t mind walking to the train station and commuting to uni because that’s my quality podcast time. Our lives are always so busy that it’s nice to just sit down for twenty minutes, listen to a great pod, and watch the world fly past.

I know some people are really into thriller podcasts, or history podcasts, but I just love all of them. A fictional sci-fi / horror podcast about a whacky town in the middle of nowhere? YES PLEASE. A true crime podcast about two women’s favourite murders? SIGN ME THE HECK UP. Seriously, I’m not fussy. I just love podcasts.

So today I’m going to be recommending EIGHT INCREDIBLE PODCASTS YOU HAVE TO LISTEN TO. And they’re perfect for book lovers as well! Whether you’re looking for a podcast with a gripping story, or one that will help you hone your own craft, I gotcha, babe.

Welcome to Night Vale

THIS IS THE FIRST PODCAST I EVER LISTENED TO! Holy crap, it’s been a ride! I started listening to Welcome to Night Vale back when I was in 9th grade, and I can still remember my friend recommending it to me (I say still remember like it was 20 years ago instead of six). It’s a fictional sci-fi / horror podcast about this strange town called Night Vale, narrated by a radio host named Cecil. And seriously, it’s weird. There’s a sentient glowing cloud with the ability to control minds, a faceless old woman who secretly lives in your home, a forbidden dog park, and hooded figures that must not be approached under any circumstances. Oh, and there’s a gay romance subplot, which I always love! Welcome to Night Vale is such an iconic podcast in pop culture, and you should definitely check it out if you haven’t already.Read More »
