This month I'm going to be recommending some LGBT+ reads for PRIDE Month. I thought it would be fun to break down each letter and give you two awesome recommendations for that "letter" category. In case you don't know what "LGBT+" stands for, I'm here to break it down for you: The "L" stands for Lesbian The "G" stands for Gay The "B" stands for Bisexual The "T" stands for Transgender The "+" stands for all the other groups, such as asexual, intersex, questioning, etc. I wanted to break it down in case there was a specific category that you...Read more...

tea and poetry books laid out on a table
The month of April is known as National Poetry Month. To be honest I haven't read a lot of poetry books, or books written in short verse. It was just recently that I discovered a book called The Sky Between You and Me by Catherine Alene.

colorful hands raised in unison

Dimple is 100% against this arranged marriage. She just wants to be a normal American girl studying and moving away to college, but her parents only see college as an opportunity to find "the perfect Indian husband." Reading this book I completely fell in LOVE with the cultural diversity through out the novel, and the main character Dimple was just so relatable! Anyway this book really got me thinking,...Read more...
