I hope everyone has had a good disability pride month! It's been hard for me for many reasons, but I wanted to bring you a small collab of 70+ disabled, neurodivergent, and chronically ill writers to go and support! Many people on the list are smaller indie writers and some do not yet have a book out but have one coming. One thing I have learned since realising I am also disabled is that people do not listen to disabled people, let alone multiply marginalised disabled people.
It has been a while, but what better post to pop back on than a collaborative post of trans books by trans authors? My post will be recommending 11 books about trans and nonbinary characters written by trans and nonbinary writers, luckily I have read most of these listed and can direct you to more in-depth reviews I have already written or recorded for more info! I hope you enjoy the post of recommended books and stick around until the end where there is important information about Trans Lives in the UK.
I've been on a partial book buying ban since 2020 ended, mainly because I don't have much money and I have many books! But I've been keeping an eye out on second hand selling sites (mainly on facebook) for books in series I want to read or have started and liked enough I would like to own and continue (as I talk through these in my Book Series I want to Finish in 2021 video! If you want to buy any of the books series I'm reading, check out this list) so those were my main second hand purchases! I also had £40 worth of gift cards I can't really use online (they are annoying with how they work...) and I don't need anything I can buy with them or the shops are closed because of Lockdowns. So when I pop into town occasionally, I check out the only shop open right now that also has books and takes these gift cards!
I've talked about the books I'm excited to read on my TBR, I've talked about the books I find intimidating, so here are the books I don't think I'm gonna care about that much. You might think, "hey why are you still planning on reading them if you don't think you'll be that bothered?" Well, just in case I actually end up really enjoying any of them. I liked some of them once already, so I'm hopeful they will at least be entertaining.
