Hey guys! So I have slowly been getting back into blogging. I have posted two reviews after being gone for a couple of months. I was originally thinking maybe I would do indiviual wrap-ups for those months. Then I saw Dora @Berries and Books do just a quick wrap-up of the books she has read since she’s been gone. I thought that would be fun. Thank you so much for the idea! Anyway, the last couple of months my reading has been very up and down. I finally have gotten back into reading which I’m super happy about. So July will have it’s own wrap-up at the end of the month. So let’s dive in and see what I read in the last couple of months!

Waiting on Wednesday: The Devouring Gray By Christine
The Devouring Gray By Christine Lynn Herman
Genre: Fantasy, Young Adult, Lgbt
Pages: 368 pages
Release Date: April 2nd 2019
Plot: Branches and stones, daggers and bones,
They locked the Beast away.
After the death of her sister, seventeen-year-old Violet Saunders finds herself dragged to Four Paths, New York. Violet may be a newcomer, but she soon learns her mother isn’t: They belong to one of the revered founding families of the town, where stone bells hang above every doorway and danger lurks in the depths of the woods.
Justin Hawthorne’s bloodline has protected Four Paths for generations from the Gray—a lifeless dimension that imprisons a brutal monster. After Justin fails to inherit his family’s powers, his mother is determined to keep this humiliation a secret. But Justin can’t let go of the future he was promised and the town he swore to protect.
Ever since Harper Carlisle lost her hand to an accident that left her stranded in the Gray for days, she has vowed revenge on the person who abandoned her: Justin Hawthorne. There are ripples of dissent in Four Paths, and Harper seizes an opportunity to take down the Hawthornes and change her destiny-to what extent, even she doesn’t yet know.
The Gray is growing stronger every day, and its victims are piling up. When Violet accidentally unleashes the monster, all three must band together with the other Founders to unearth the dark truths behind their families’ abilities—before the Gray devours them all.

Top 5 Wednesday: Favorite LGBTQ+ Reads
Okay so I have to admit that I haven’t read too many LGBTQ+ books. I have read a couple but none that have really blown me away. So I decided instead of writing about my favorites, I decided I would write about ones I look forward to reading. All of these are books I’ve recently found out about and how to get my hands on soon.
The Love Interest By Cale Dietrich
Release Date: May 16th 2017
Reason: This book kinda reminds me of the movie This Means War. Those are the vibes I am getting from it. I enjoyed that movie so I have high hopes for this story. I do love that this story is about two guys fighting for the affection of this girl and they end up falling for each other. I can picture this being a fun read. I can’t wait for it to come out.
Of Fire and Stars By Audrey Coulthrust
Reason: I’ve been hearing a lot about this book lately. It’s about how this princess is promised to marry the prince but she ends up falling in love with his sister. I think this is a lovely take on fairy tales. I also really am drawn to the cover. I can’t wait to check this one out.
More Happy Than Not By Adam Silveria
Reason: I’ve heard nothing but amazing things about Adam’s writing. I really would love to read all his books. This is his first book so I thought this would be a great place to start. I am ready to bring on the tears.
The Five Stages of Andrew Brawley by Shaun David Hutchinson
Reason: I’ve heard nothing but great things about Shaun’s books as well. I read Violent Ends and enjoyed it. I really want to check out his other books. I know We Are the Ants is very loved. This is his second most loved book so I really would like to check out both of these books.
Aristotle and Dante Discover Secrets of the World By Benjamin Alire Sáenz
Reason: This is the one book on the list I don’t really know much about. I’ve heard a lot of people mention how they really love this book and the characters. I am extremely curious about it especially since I don’t know much about it.
What are some of your LGBTQ+ books that you liked that you would recommend? I always am open to recommendations.
