For Pride month this year, I really wanted to shine the light on some of the amazing, amazing queer comics that I have come across and which deserve so much more love! Often when there is talk of queer comics there is a main name which always crops up and usually dominates the discussion; Lumberjanes (and/or Nimona). Whilst I do love both of these comics, there are a lot of fantastic queer comics out there which are doing beautiful things with art, narrative, and diverse representation. Many of these are even free to read online, with creators earning money through tips rather than being paid on a regular basis. So, I want to share with you all some of my favourite queer comics as well as some which I can’t wait to read!
Top 10 Tuesday is a weekly book tag that was run by The Broke and the Bookish but has now moved to That Artsy Reader Girl. Each week she provides a different bookish theme those deep-seated desires to list! Anyone is welcome to join in on their blog, in the comments or any other way.
– Top 10 Rainbow Recommendations –
Yesterday I posted up part 1 of this week’s Top 10 Tuesday’s prompt, Beautiful Blue Books, but as I mentioned I had so many ideas for the prompt (none to do with my favourite colour…) that I had to split the posts into 2. Today’s post will focus on my Rainbow Recommendations as I have so many lovely book covers to share with you all that I just couldn’t help myself ❤
April is the best month of all because it’s my birthday and it’s right in the middle of the month so I always try to get away with not doing things “because it’s my birthday”. I’ve had a few people ask me about buying me gifts for my birthday – if you would like to buy me anything then you can check out my amazon wishlist! My birthday is April 15th 🙂 That’s right – I am the most irritating combination of a Gryffindor AND being an Aries.
April is also awesome because its Autism Awareness Month! Sadly, I don’t usually see as many people talking about Autism Awareness Month as they do about other awareness months so I want to try to do some Autism themed posts to celebrate the month!
