WWW Wednesday | 4th September 2019

WWW Wednesday is hosted by Sam @ Taking on a World of Words! All you have to do is answers the following three questions:

What are you currently reading/playing?
What did you recently finish reading/playing?
What do you think you’ll read/play next?

I’m having quite a bad day today and have been having a run of pretty rough days over the past week. I’ve been feeling really stressed out about my dissertation as I’m not having a good time with it which has had a knock-on effect to my depression & anxiety which has then had a knock-on effect to my sleep hygiene and everything has kind of collapsed. I’m hoping to be able to submit my dissertation for the deadline next Monday so then I can have a couple of weeks break before starting my PhD at the end of September and be able to catch up with some reading and gaming!

Wrap Up | June

Hey friends!

It’s the end of June, the end of Pride, and the second half of the year is almost upon us already. 2018 has been a blur so far, June was no different and July definitely is going to be the same! I read some super great diverse books and participated in some cool reading themes including the Ramadan Readathon, World Ocean Day, and Pride.

Pride | Queer Comics

Pride | Queer Comics

For Pride month this year, I really wanted to shine the light on some of the amazing, amazing queer comics that I have come across and which deserve so much more love! Often when there is talk of queer comics there is a main name which always crops up and usually dominates the discussion; Lumberjanes (and/or Nimona).

Many of these are even free to read online, with creators earning money through tips rather than being paid on a regular basis. So, I want to share with you all some of my favourite queer comics as well as some which I can’t wait to read!
