Book Recs: 5 Popular Gay Space Books Worth the Hype

Book Recs: 5 Popular Gay Space Books Worth the Hype

As much as I love lesser-known hidden gem kinda books, I do read popular books too, and sometimes hyped books are in fact worth the hype. So I am very glad I read these! They're all fantastic, and some of them are among my absolute favorites. So if you haven't read them yet, but you like queer books and books set in outer space, consider giving these a...
 
Book Recs: 10 Lesser-Known Gay Space Books to Check Out

Book Recs: 10 Lesser-Known Gay Space Books to Check Out

Outer space is, well, scary, if I'm being honest. But also cool! In fiction, at least. So I have compiled a list of books that are set in space and on other planets and also gay. (A term I am using broadly, since these are mostly m/m, but there is one about a nonbinary character.) About half are romance-centric, the other half have some romance but it's small or not the only focus. But I enjoyed...
 
Bookish Musings: The Cozy Potential of the Apocalypse + Recommendations!

Bookish Musings: The Cozy Potential of the Apocalypse + Recommendations!

I wasn't sure how to explain this in the title. Cozy, chill, intimate, even lonely in a thought-provoking sort of way---this sort of feeling is something I've noticed about and something that really draws me to apocalypse and post-apocalyptic books, games, etc. But I feel like that's sort of not what people associate with the genre? So that's what I wanted to talk about, plus give some...
 
Book Recs: 10 Sci-Fi/Fantasy Western Books

Book Recs: 10 Sci-Fi/Fantasy Western Books

Weird West (sci-fi and fantasy books set in the Old West or worlds inspired by it) is a genre I never expected to like, considering I've never had interest in westerns when it comes to movies or shows. But I do like feeling immersed in historical settings, and I like paranormals and magic, so here we are! These are more fantasy and paranormal than sci-fi, but I tried to get some variety in...
 
Book Recs: 10 Queer Christmas-Themed Sci-Fi/Fantasy Books

Book Recs: 10 Queer Christmas-Themed Sci-Fi/Fantasy Books

I'm back with more SFF Christmas book recommendations! Earlier this time, in case people need them for readathons or are already feeling the holiday spirit. Also queerer! My other posts, which I'll link to below, have lots of queer books too, so check those out if you're looking for more, but I decided this time I wanted them all to be queer. They're all m/m, but I went with a broader title so...
 
Book Recs: 10 Gay Ghost Books to Check Out

Book Recs: 10 Gay Ghost Books to Check Out

Gay ghost books! Well, the books are gay, not necessarily the ghosts, though there are quite a few of those too. These are mostly m/m romance, some are not necessarily romance but are about mlm characters. One has a ghost love interest, most have ghosts who are a problem, and the rest have ghosts that have some other role in the story. (Sorry if you're disappointed by only one ghost love...
 
Book Recs: 10 Lesser-Known M/M Urban Fantasy Series

Book Recs: 10 Lesser-Known M/M Urban Fantasy Series

I love paranormal and urban fantasy! I could give tons of recommendations, depending on how loosely you define "urban fantasy." For this, I tried to stick to what most people probably think of---our world (though maybe with known existence of magic), modern times, not too slow or rural, at least some action/battles---though I did slip a few in that don't fit the criteria perfectly. I could give...
 
Book Recs: 10 Sci-Fi/Fantasy Books to Make You Laugh

Book Recs: 10 Sci-Fi/Fantasy Books to Make You Laugh

It feels like everyone could use a bit more joy and laughter right now, so I've put this post together in the hopes of helping some people find that! I'm not promising there's nothing sad or serious in these books. Just that these books have made me laugh or are fun and silly enough to be a nice distraction from real life. I'll try to give some info as to the mood of each book, to the best of...
 
Book Recs: 10 Books about Dragons… Kinda

Book Recs: 10 Books about Dragons… Kinda

As a fantasy lover who leans more to the paranormal/urban fantasy side of the genre, and who usually sticks to smaller or romance-focused stories when reading high fantasy, I don't tend to read a lot about your average scary, large, fire-breathing kind of dragon. I have, however, read some books about dragon shifters, humanoid dragons, half-dragon beings, and dragons who are otherwise somewhat...
