In the Past Month (August 2016)
Sorry my posts have been a bit sporadic lately! I'm trying to read ahead as much as I can so I can review and schedule. I have some posts already scheduled, but hopefully I'll get things figured out soon! Thanks for being patient and for continuing to visit and/or comment! I do appreciate it.
Anyway, I thought it might be fun to share a bit about my past month, though, and what I've been up to! If you do one of these End of the Month posts, please let me know and I'll come and stop by!
Read in August:
Party of One: A Memoir in 21 Songs by Dave Holmes: review
Boyfriend Material by K.A. Mitchell: review
Connection Error by Annabeth Albert (review to come)
The Talented Mr. Rivers by HelenKay Dimon (review to come)
Labyrinth Lost by Zoraida Cordova (review to come)
Say It Right by A.M. Arthur (review to come)
Real World by B.A. Tortuga: review
I feel like a lot of the LGBT+ books that I read in August are actually ARCs for September. You can sort of see this above, since four of the books I read still have reviews to come. I'm one book away from reading everything on Netgalley, which is where most of my LGBT+ books to review come from, so hopefully I can get some books I already own read next month. I'm hoping to read Out of Frame by Megan Erickson, which I bought recently so I'm ready to go for Overexposed which comes out on September 20th. I also need to read the second book between Megan Erickson and Santino Hassell, called Fast Connection.
Any LGBT+ books you're hoping to read in the month of September? Are you interested in any of the books I've mentioned in this post so far?
On My September Wish List:
In Vogue by Lucia Laurent - Goodreads
Do-Gooder by J. Leigh Bailey - Goodreads
Steady Stroke by A.M. Arthur- Goodreads
It Looks Like This by Rafi Mittlefehldt- Goodreads
Do you have any other September LGBT+ books I should add to my list? Obviously I'm only including ones I haven't read yet (and I don't own a copy of any of these yet!)
I'm going to be away in London, England for the beginning of September. When I get back, I'll be starting a new job. So my time on my blogs might be limited a bit for the first half of the month until I get a better schedule figured out. However, I will have my computer with me on vacation so I'm hoping to find a couple nights where I can write people back and check up on things! Besides that, I'm just excited to get away for a bit. I'm going with my mom, sister, and one of my aunts. My aunt and sister have both been, but this is all new for my mom and me, and I've never left the U.S. so the plane ride is one part that makes me a bit nervous. I'm not big on planes in general (though I've been on them) but being in one for so many hours? I HOPE I can fall asleep, but I've yet to sleep on a plane. I'm not good at that sort of thing, but I know I need to catch some shut-eye or it will be awful my first day in London (not that we plan on doing much that day).
Two of the things I'll be doing with my sister is the Harry Potter Studio tour and seeing the Harry Potter and the Cursed Child plays. I'm very excited!
If you have any last minute tips or things I should see/do, leave them in the comments and I'll do my best if I'm interested!
