She expected to hand off the translation and wash her hands of the project—instead, she is intrigued by the young woman who turns up at her door, begging to be allowed to do the work, and she agrees to let Lucy stay.

Hello friends!

I’m here today with a list of my 36 most anticipated releases. I could have sworn I had way more, but then when I went to put the post together, I found out I didn’t. I’m pretty sure that the main reason is that I forget to add books to my goodreads TBR and end up forgetting about them altogether. As usual these are mostly YA but there’s also some Adult romance thrown in their, because I couldn’t help myself as the romance trash I am. Continue reading

Writing a book is difficult. Try adding in pieces of yourself and the process gets even more complicated.

            I’ve wanted to include a piece of myself in every story. Up until I tackled my first book, it was usually depression or anxiety rep. These were two things I had become so intimately tied to that putting them on the page seemed natural. Continue reading

Nadia

Representation of the LGBTQ+ community in YA has come a long way since the dark ages. Or since the 2000s, when all we got was J. K. Rowling’s retconning of Dumbledore’s character and a couple of David Levithan’s books hidden away in the teen fiction section of the book store. But sometimes it feels like even when we’re making strides towards better representation of queer individuals, a large part of the community is being left out. Continue reading
