Monthly Wrap Up: Queer in August 2022

As a way to track my efforts and reflect on my work, I’ve decided to bring back my monthly wrap-ups. I wrote those a few years ago, but when I didn’t have time and energy to blog, I stopped, because it was rather frustrating.

Queer Book Reviews in August 2022

If you missed a review of mine this month, this is your chance to read it. Maybe your next favourite queer book is hidden among them? Although I do admit, I really disliked one of those books…

  • Review: How to Tame a Dragon by Lila Mina
    I love Lila Mina’s Temper Series featuring older POC characters. My review tells you how queer paranormal romance How to Tame a Dragon holds up to it.
  • Review: Give and Go by F.A. Ray
    Queer Contemporary Sports Romance with a touch of BDSM Give and Go by F.A. Ray didn’t exactly work for me. Let the ranting review start!
  • Review: Out of the Ashes by Jenn Burke
    How does book three of queer paranormal romance series Ashes & Dust compare to book two?
  • Review: Stone Wings by Jenn Burke
    This queer paranormal romance features the fake dating trope and is full of banter and interesting lore.

Bookish Reflections for August 2022

So far, I’m quite happy with the work I’ve done on The Queer Bookish this month and I’m 99 % sure my book blogging Bujo has been a huge part of my success. There are a few things I want to tweak, but I am already excited to set it up for 2023. As well as to start planning how to introduce you to the way I’m doing Bullet Journaling for my blog.

I enjoyed most of the books I’ve reviewed this month, but I’m not that surprised since those are written by my beloved authors Lila Mina and Jenn Burke.

I’m especially glad I decided to take part in Aria’s Let’s Talk Bookish meme which she hosts @Book Nook Bits because of that I got the inspiration to write my thoughts about Balancing Blogging and Life (and Working).

I’ve also replied to every email that sat in my inbox. There are still some comments I have to reply to though and quite some posts from fellow bloggers I want to read. I should probably block some time for that this weekend.

What’s your favourite piece you’ve published and/or read this month? Let me know and link to it in the comments!
