Hello and welcome back to our newest program, Abi Remembers This Blog Exists! That's a lie, it's actually a rebranding of our extremely old program, Abi Feels Guilty About Never Using This Blog. Whatever. Guilt isn't productive. You know what is? Sharing my favorite queer reads of this year so far!
This is the second post in a new series I'm doing, as I explained in my last post, called Stamp of Approval. In this series I share books I've enjoyed recently alongside stamps I've carved based off them. This series might take over my blog entirely for a little bit, as stamp carving is the creative outlet I've been using recently, so I hope you're ready to see a whole lot of ink.
In which I combine my new stamp carving hobby with my old book reviewing hobby.
Little reviews of the book boxes I'm recently subscribed to! Complete spoiler warning for June & July Illumicrate and July Fairyloot if you're waiting on receiving those.
This blog turned a year old a little while ago. It felt sad at the time. I'd wanted to really put effort into this blog and fill it with cool stuff, and then it turned out that living out a pandemic is exhausting and I often didn't have the motivation in the past few months.
I can't believe I'm saying this, but I read a lot in March. Ignored my responsibilities to do so, but hey! Reading! We like reading! Lots of reviews in this very late wrap up.
I finished four books in February, two of them anthologies and all of them fantasy. Not a huge amount, but standard for when I'm at school. It's been a stressful few weeks.
The director of Fake Famous seems to think his documentary is about revealing the fakeness of social media. I think it's really a simulation of being rich to begin with.
This month I read six books, one of which was a graphic novel and a reread. The rest were split between fantasy and nonfiction. No mind-blowing books this month, unfortunately. Most of them were uniformly good but not 5 star material, which makes it hard to order them from worst to best.
We return once more to the terrifying world of my terrifyingly long TBR shelf.
