Dear reader,

June is Pride Month, so it made sense that I would have to write a little bookish blog post related to it!

Though I do not identify as part of the LGBTQIA+ community (I am demisexual/asexual and though there are a lot of thoughts on our place in the community I never felt as if I belonged to it) I still believe it’s important to talk about it, especially during June.

Last year I let people from the community talks for themselves and recommend some books to which they identify. This year I decided to share with you all five books I loved which has a character from the LGBTQIA+ community.

My 5 last 5 stars reads of 2019

Dear reader,

I haven’t found many new all time favourites this year so far, but I did read some amazing books to which I still gave 5 stars on Goodreads! I used to be the type of person who would give 5 stars to pretty much all the books but I’m now more picky when it comes to it. I guess growing makes me being more judgmental while reading (that, and my literary studies).

That’s why I thought it’ll be fun to present to you all the last 5 books I gave 5 stars to!

Five reasons why you should read Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell

Dear reader,

If you don’t know,Β FangirlΒ by Rainbow Rowell is one of my favourite books in the whole wide world. I have been re-reading it over and over again and apparently I still can’t get enough of it. There’s something about this book that makes me feel better – I even keep it on my desk to make sure that I see it every day and so it will work its magic on me.

The thing is that this book is a win or loose deal: You either adore it or hate it. Indeed,Β Fangirl is a characters driven novel and there’s no real story within it. That’s why today I wanted to present you five reasons why you should read Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell.

My favourite books set at university

Dear reader,

If you don’t know by now I am obsessed with books that are set at university or at school in general. To be honest I have always been obsessed with school – I was the kind of kids who felt at home there, even though I got bullied afterwards for a part of my life. Still I always loved studying and even begged my parents to put me in a boarding school as I loved the idea to live in a community and to study at all time, but we didn’t have the money for it. Becoming a teacher is probably the best thing that could ever happen to me by now. (And if you want to know something funny my family and I moved into my mother’s school as her job comes with an appartment and I feel so good there, mostly because it is in a school and it calms me down.)

Anyway, it’s no surprise now that I do love books that are set at university or at school. They make me feel better, they calm me down and make me relax. There’s something about school that helps me breathe, maybe because of all the rules you have to obey and how everything makes sense. Well, reading about it makes me feel the same way and that’s why today I decided to present you four of my favourite books set at university.
