As someone who works in a library and is a huge mood reader, I often forget what books I already own and how many I still need to read. I was reminded of this especially when my family and I initially moved, and I had to go through the process of packing and unpacking all of my books. It made me notice books that I’d forgotten about and wanted to read, or realize that I owned a lot of books that I no longer cared to read anymore. So, to rectify this issue, I decided that I wanted to challenge myself a little.
So I’d like to introduce the Alphabet Backlist Challenge (ABCs!).
If y’all have been following me for a bit, you might have noticed my absence from the book blogging community. This blog, and my bookish social media accounts on Twitter and Instagram, have been more or less dead for the past few years.
Well, if you didn’t know, I’ve been going to college! And I just graduated in December! So as I work to get this blog back up and running, I wanted to compile a short list of books published during the time I was in college that I want to read ASAP now that I have some freetime.
Hi all! I realize you haven’t heard from me that much recently, but I’m trying to keep this blog as active as I can as I go through my second year of college. Thankfully, the people at Penguin Young Readers were able to offer me this amazing opportunity, and I was gifted a surprise package in the form of a diverse and spooky upcoming YA release.
Below, you won’t find my review (not just yet!), but you’ll find something just as amazing. I very loosely based a short horror quiz off this story. While I didn’t want to spoil much with the options, I thought that I took it in a fairly neutral, but fun, direction. I hope y’all enjoy!
I’ve been struggling with what to write for my blog for a while, so I figured I’d write something that I actually want to write about: queer books.
Below you’ll find a few books that I’m looking forward to releasing. This list isn’t comprehensive, and definitely doesn’t have all the books I’m looking forward to. It’s just the ones that are on the forefront of my mind 😉
This is hard for me to write, mainly because I don’t want to admit to myself that I fell victim to this. But a few nights ago, when I sat down to write a few other posts and loaded up a video game instead, I realized that this was an actual problem.
The Book Deviant has been active since early-mid 2016, with a few breaks here and there due to schooling conflicts and the like. However, recently I’ve found that writing posts is a struggle.
