Diversity Spotlight Thursday – Bisexual MCs

diverse-spotlight1

Diversity Spotlight Thursday is a weekly book meme that was started by my amazing, lovely friend Aimal over at Bookshelves and Paperbacks! The We Need Diverse Books movement is something that is incredibly close to my heart, so I hope to share some new books with you each week so you can diversify your reading. Each week will feature a specific theme, and I look forward to seeing recs from y’all as well!

Diversity Spotlight will take place every Thursday, and it will be featuring three books in any given week:

  1. A diverse book you have read and enjoyed
  2. A diverse book that has already been released but you have not read
  3. A diverse book that has not yet been released

This week’s theme is BISEXUAL MAIN CHARACTERS!

On Bisexuality

bisexual

I want to talk a bit about bisexuality/biromanticism, because every time I think the biphobia is finally dying down and we can have a moment of piece, something new rears its head and ruins my day.

To start, here is the definition of bisexuality according BiNet USA, a non-profit that advocates for the bisexual community.

ARC Reviews

ARC REVIEW: Heels Over Head by Elyse Springer

SUMMARY

33976926

Publisher: Riptide Publishing
Release Date: May 29th, 2017
Received From: NetGalley

Jeremy Reeve is one of the best divers in the world, and he’s worked hard to get where he is. He intends to keep pushing himself with one very clear goal in mind: winning gold at the summer Olympics in two years. That medal might be the only way to earn his father’s respect as an athlete.

Brandon Evans is everything Jeremy isn’t: carefree, outgoing, and openly gay. With his bright-blue eyes and dramatic tattoos, he’s a temptation that Jeremy refuses to acknowledge. But Jeremy can’t ignore how talented Brandon is—or that Brandon has no interest in using his diving skills to compete.

They’re opposites who are forced to work together as teammates, but Jeremy’s fear of his own sexuality and Brandon’s disinterest in anything “not fun” may end their partnership before it begins. Until a single moment changes everything, and they help each other discover that “team” can also mean family and love.

Intro Post!

Hey, y’all!

I’m Leah, your resident demi-bi demigirl reviewer (blogger? sorry, I’m new to this, so we’ll still with reviewer for now, I guess). I’m in my mid-twenties and decided now would be a good time to start a blog so I could gush about books across even more media platforms.

My goal is to post reviews for a variety of books. Together we’ll cross genres, time, and reading levels. I will primarily focus on queer books, but occasionally I’ll review non-queer books. At the moment, I mainly read Young Adult and Adult, but I’m wading into the warm waters of New Adult and Middle Grade.

Other than reviews, I’ll post about the goings-on in the book world and my thoughts on those. Hopefully I’ll be able to get some author spotlights/interviews up as well, but that’s something to work on once I’m a little bit more established, I think.

But anyway, as the blog title indicates, I’m here and I’m queer and I’ve got opinions on pretty much everything.
