WWW Wednesday 55

Hello, and happy Wednesday! Since my last WWW post, I’ve: started high school, had way too much homework, and somehow, read more in the last seven days than I have in any given week in a very long time. Most of this is thanks to my school library which I’ve gone to a bunch of times. It’s really amazing, and there’s a fantastic selection of books. Anyways, lets get into this little reading update!!

WWW Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Sam @ Taking On a World of Words, and how it works is each week I answer three questions about my the books I’ve read, finished reading and want to read next.

LGBTQ+ books I read this summer

Hi!! Today I have a list of all of the LGBTQ+ books I read this summer! There are 11 in total, and I’m so excited to share my thoughts on them all with you! Two are rereads, but the rest are new, and I think that I’ve done a good job this summer in trying to read lots of books with LGBTQ+ rep!!

Also, these all have queer main characters, and those are the ones I wanted to include. I have read lots of other books with LGBTQ+ side characters, and I do want to point that out too.

Anyways, I read a ton of amazing books this summer, and I do recommend all of these, so you can take this as a wrap up and as a queer books recommendations post. I did prefer some of the books more than others though, so you can read about all of my thoughts on them below! So, let’s get into the post!

Let’s Talk Bookish: Keeping books safe

Hello, and happy Friday!! It’s only been two days since my last post, but a lot has happened: I started high school! My orientation and walk through of classes was on Thursday, and today was my first full day. I didn’t do much, mostly just getting to know teachers, and getting a syllabus for each class, but I think it went pretty well!

The school is so much bigger than my middle school though, and it’s very easy to get lost. I think that I’m sort of getting the hang of everything though (I hope!!).

Let’s Talk Bookish is a weekly discussion post created by Rukky @ Eternity Books and is hosted by Rukky and Dani @ A Literary Lion! This week’s topic is PETS/CHILDREN & BOOKS, (suggested by Dani!)

I just went for more generally how I take care of physical books, so that’s what this post is going to be about!!

WWW Wednesday 54

Hello, and happy Wednesday! This is my first WWW Wednesday post in a very long time (somehow it’s been 8 months since I last did one of these) but I’m so excited to be writing this one! While putting it together, I realized how much I missed making these each Wednesday, so you can expect to see a lot more reading updates from now on!!

My first day of ninth grade is also tomorrow: I’m starting high school in less than 12 hours, which is exciting but also kind of terrifying. I’m really happy with my schedule though, and I even got journalism as one of my electives!! Thats not until second trimester though, so I have a few more months until I get to take the class. I’m so happy I got it though!!

The Bronzed Beasts, by Roshani Chokshi | a fanastic conclusion to an amazing series

Hello, and welcome to the review of my most anticipated releast of 2021! The Bronzed Beasts is the conclusion to The Gilded Wolves trilogy, a historical fantasy series that I’ve been following for a very long time. I first read The Gilded Wolves at the beginning of 2020, then eagerly awaited The Silvered Serpents, and painfully waited for The Bronzed Beasts. I ended up miraculously winning a goodreads giveaway for The Bronzed Beasts, which is how I ended up with the advance copy I’m going to be reviewing today!

This review, like all of mine, will be fully spoiler free for all the books in the trilogy, so without further ado, let’s get into the review!

Anticipated releases: September 2021

Hello! I feel like it was just yesterday that I was making my August releases post, and I can’t beleive that it’s already time for this one. I’ve had an amazing time with this post, especially because my most anticipated book for all of 2021 is coming out this month!

It’s the Bronzed Beasts, by Roshani Chokshi and is the third and final book in the Gilded Wolves Trilogy. I won an arc, and am actually reading it right now, and am absolutely loving it. I still can’t believe that it’s going to be officially published, and I’m a bit sad because I’ve been following the series for so long.

And there are so many other amazing books coming out this month that I am so excited to read, so I’m going to get into the list of books!
