My Favourite LGBT Couples

This post is part of Six for Sunday run by Steph from A Little but a Lot.

June is all about celebrating some of our favourite LGBT romances, and I have definitely got a few of those.

Quite a few of my favourite LGBT couples come from YA fiction, which is a really important place to see them. Teenagers seeing people like them in the books they read is of huge importance, and we need to ensure it’s widespread. These books are great places to start.

Favourite Characters from Series

This post is part of Six for Sunday run by Steph from A Little but a Lot.

One of my favourite things about book series is how well you get to know the characters in it. As you spend so much time with them, you get to know their personalities and their lives in a way you just don’t get with standalones.

When you have so much time with these characters, there are naturally some you gravitate to more than others. Here are some of the characters from my favourite series, that I still think about now and then.

Tag Thursday: The Gilmore Girls Book Tag

The world seems to be having a bit of a moment right now, and I’ve been coming back to some of my comforts regularly to calm me. One of my greatest comforts is Gilmore Girls, and I’m midway through a re-watch of the main series. (I probably won’t watch the revival though, we don’t talk about the revival in this house.)

I wanted to tie in my (and Rory’s) love of books with the show, so this tag I found on Read by Zoe┬áis the perfect way to do so.

Characters I Aspire To

This post is part of Six for Sunday, run by Steph from A Little but a Lot.

I’m a hugely character-driven reader. The plot can leave me wanting more without problem, but if the characters in a book are weak it’s a downside for me.

When I read a great character, I often find myself wanting to be them. There are some characters from throughout my reading life I’ve definitely wanted to trade places with.

Characters I Want to be Stranded With

This post is part of Six for Sunday, run by Steph from A Little but a Lot.

Being stranded on a desert island would be wonderful for our TBRs, but of course it would get a little lonesome after a while. Hence, we need a couple of people to drop by every now and then to make it a bit more exciting. Of course, I don’t mean they should stay for good.

If any of these lovely characters could pop in every now and then while I tackled my TBR, they’d be more than welcome. I hope they bring a Chinese with them.
