Welcome friends to my little corner of the internet!
I’m Avery, a 27-year-old diverse book blogger who lives in South London with my partner and my dog. I am a transmasculine/genderqueer person who uses he/him and/or they/them pronouns, please and thanks! In addition to being a diverse book blogger, I am a PhD candidate whose research focuses on video games, AI, personhood and the body.
RedRocketPanda was born one afternoon as I found myself rapidly hurtling towards the end of my degree with one major question still hanging over my head – what on earth will I do once I graduate? I decided to start blogging about one of the things I love the most, BOOKS! Since then, this blog has continued to flourish in completely unexpected ways, launched me into a loving community, and opened doors to all kinds of new worlds both fictional and real!
Favourite books include:
I primarily read young adult and adult fiction across science fiction, fantasy, historical fiction and contemporary as well as non-fiction.
What I do:
🌻 Read and review books honestly. If you would like to read my reviews then head on over to my review section, or if you are an author and would like me to review your book then click here to find out more about working with me!
🌻 Write articles on a range of issues including trans representation, inclusion and accessibility at events, my thoughts on the latest games/books/films plus a whole load of other things. Got a topic you’d like me to write about? Then contact me via this page!
🌻 Promote interesting and positive discussions about bookish things, as well as continually provide a platform to boost and celebrate diversity.
🌻 Speak and moderate at geeky conventions like Nine Worlds, WorldCon and EasterCon to large rooms of people and have the time of my life doing so. Some of the sessions I have run in the past include Queer Coding in Disney, Animal Rights & Conservation in Jurassic Park, Sexuality in Bioware, Women in Star Wars, #ownvoice representation, video games, and class representation in YA.

Come and say hey!
