The Queer’s Review

I was so hyped for this book.

I remember how I sat on the balcony, enjoying the sun and thinking I was in for a great treat.

Well, I wasn’t. Now don’t get me wrong. It was interesting enough – at times. At other times I felt it was rather elitist and overall… it’s just so rushed!

The book rushes through time, through culture, through continents… It’s really sad, because I really enjoyed the queer eye used in Queer Magic. But I wasn’t able to get into a thing because there always was the next and the next and the next. I feel stressed just thinking back to it.

If one is looking for a starting point it may be the right book. It may not as well.

Bookish Thoughts

An one time read.
