Mini Review! LGBTQIA+ Graphic Novels

GN (3)

I’m going to be doing mini reviews on four graphics novels with some great LGBTQIA+ rep today.  I normally don’t do full reviews on graphic novels, just because they are shorter reads, and I’m always scared I’ll give too much of the story away.  I still like to give them some love and spotlight them though because I adore reading them so much.  Graphic novels are also a fantastic way to help you catch up on any Goodreads or reading challenges goals you have.

Large Physical & E-Arc Haul!

 

Melanie

I’ve stayed most on top of my arcs, but a few have gotten away with me but I’ll have them read very soon.  I have quite a pile right now but I know there are people with MASSIVE arc back hauls and that stresses me out just thinking about it.  I’m pretty picky with what I choose, which is hard because I want to request like 90% of what I see but I know I’ll never get to it in time.   Continue reading “Large Physical & E-Arc Haul!”
