Queer Recommendations

Hello! Happy Wednesday!

In honor of pride month, I’ve decided to recommend books that have queer characters! I have decided to list books I have read, and tell you about some I haven’t read but heard wonderful things about and would like to read in the future. There are so many books that are coming out that include queer characters this year and it warms my heart because it needs to happen.

I don’t particularly talk about my sexuality very much, not because I’m not open about it but just because it never really comes up. I identify as demisexual. For those who don’t know what that means, demisexual is where I am not sexually attracted to anyone unless I have an emotional connection with someone.

**Let me know down in the comments what your favorite queer book is, or share if you’re comfortable enough, what your sexual identity is!**

My Favorite BookTubers

Hello! Happy Tuesday!

I haven’t really talked about what influenced me to start a book blog. Besides the obvious love for books, and wanting to talk about them, I watch BookTube videos. It’s essentially the same thing as blogging, but with videos. I knew I didn’t have enough confidence or determination to make videos but I knew that I was capable of having a blog. I definitely don’t regret starting my blog. It’s still a whole learning process for me, but I’m still enjoying my time writing blog posts about books but also writing and art as well.

In today’s post, I wanted to share with you all some of the BookTubers that I love to watch, and that inspires me to read and start this blog.

Let me know down in the comments what inspired you to make your blog, and if you watch BookTube, who are your favorites! ***


**Links to their YouTube channels are in their name**

InsaneReader: Although he doesn’t post many videos as of recent, I still enjoy watching his videos. Caleb is very passionate about the books he reads, and he has this energy that is totally relatable. He’s also pretty energetic in his videos which makes it more entertaining to watch.

Paperbackdreams: This channel is run by Kat. She’s very awkward and random but very funny and passionate. When she has thoughts about a book, she puts a lot of thought into it, and if she doesn’t like a book, she gives examples of why she doesn’t but also gives credit to the side that might enjoy it.

Emmabooks: This channel is made by Emma. She reads a lot of different types of books, and a lot every month, and has thorough thoughts about each on that she reads. She has a lot of recommendation videos, especially pertaining to mental health.

Kate Pfeil: Kate reads a lot of different books, and usually, it’s books that most of booktube doesn’t talk about or read. It’s refreshing to watch her videos because she reads all different kinds of books, and to get new book ideas.

BooksandLala: Kayla or Lala is a very popular booktuber, and she mostly reads newer books, but she is very honest in her responses to the books she reads. She gives both sides of the book, and the reasons whether she likes books or not. She also does interesting challenges, some to push herself to read the books on her TBR shelf and try new things
