Book Tour: Alliana, Girl of Dragons by Julie Abe | Spotlight

Welcome to my stop on the TBR and Beyond Tours Book Tour for Alliana, Girl of Dragons by Julie Abe.

Then found out it was also inspired by the Japanese version of Cinderalla, which just further sold it to me.

Welcome to my stop on the TBR and Beyond Tours Book Tour for Nura and the Immortal Palace by M. T. Khan. This sounds like a really good middle grade, one I think would be perfect for September.

Recommendations: Nine 2022 LGBTQIA+ Reads

I find myself wanting to make recommendations lists from time to time, but don’t always have a specific post or reason in mind. With that thought in mind, I’d thought from time to time I’d do random recommendations. These recommendations could fit a theme of the month or genre’s I’ve been gravitating towards. This is only my second one, first one was Five Adult RomComs all the way back in February (but I think I have another one coming a lot sooner!).

I’ve read so many amazing LGBTQIA+ books this year already that I wanted to share some. I decided to be super specific this time a pick only 2022 releases! I may have to do a Part 2 near the end of the year the way things are going because I had originally planned only 5 but couldn’t cute enough lol! So without further adieu, let’s get into it!

Goodreads Synopsis:

The city of Elendhaven sulks on the edge of the ocean. Wracked by plague, abandoned by the South, stripped of industry and left to die. But not everything dies so easily. A thing without a name stalks the city, a thing shaped like a man, with a dark heart and long pale fingers yearning to wrap around throats. A monster who cannot die. His frail master sends him out on errands, twisting him with magic, crafting a plan too cruel to name, while the monster’s heart grows fonder and colder and more cunning.

These monsters of Elendhaven will have their revenge on everyone who wronged the city, even if they have to burn the world to do it.
