Hellooooo my lovely lemons! How are you doing? Read anything good recently? I’ve been trying to branch out what I’m reading lately, which has resulted in my reading list growing more in the past month than it has in the whole last year combined! So instead of just sitting under this growing pile of books having an existential crisis about how I’m never going to read them all, I thought I’d make some fun content and share them with you all!
As the title alludes to, I’ve been focusing on adding more sapphic books and books by authors of colour to my TBR recently. It’s something I realised I was sorely lacking and I’m determined to do my absolute best to change that. As a blogger (even a small one) I have influence over what people read, and I think we all have a responsibility to make sure we’re reading and recommending a diverse range of books.
In a small snippet of personal news, me and Olly just celebrated our 2 year anniversary! We went back to the spot they took me to on our first date. This time we have a little tag-along in the form of Pip – he had a good run around as you can see above!
Now my original idea for this post was to just show you all the books I’ve added recently, from backlist titles to anticipated releases. Then I scrolled through my Goodreads and saw just how many books that is. I completely balked at that idea and decided to save upcoming releases for another post.
Also, I’ve figured that making this list will be a lot less painful for me if I just include the covers of all these book and trust that you can read them, rather than writing heading and descriptions and links for each title. Realising I could do that was a serious relief. So I hope you’ll forgive me for not including the Goodreads links, but according to my stats page no one ever clicks on them anyway. If you see anything you like the look of, I’m sure you can search it yourself!
Oh my word, now I’ve actually uploaded all the covers I am SO GLAD I didn’t try to do them individually because it may actually have killed me. If this page kills your browser and refuses to load, I’m very sorry. If it does you can take comfort in knowing what it did to my browser as I tried to download and upload them all.
So, that was all the (released) books I’ve added to my TBR recently! See anything you like the look of? Have you read anything I’ve added? I’ll try to do an anticipated releases post soon as well if you liked this one! As for the diversity of the books I read, I’m trying my best to do better but there’s always going to be room for improvement. If you’ve got any recommendations for me, feel free to drop them in the comments!
