This week’s theme is…

February 7th: Favorite M/M Couples
–Who are your favorite dudes loving other dudes? (Note: this isn’t specifically cis gay couples, but also applies to couples that include bi men, trans men, pan men, ace men, etc.)

While scrolling through the books I’ve read over the years on Goodreads, it became pretty obvious that books that feature M/M couples were scarce.   This is something I have been aware of, and thankfully have been working on rectifying over the past few months.  I was happy when I realized that all of the couples on my list feature at least one of the main characters in the book, instead of secondary characters that do not get as much attention.

I would like to preface this T5W with the knowledge that listing these couples *MAY* be considered mild spoilers.  It is not always stated in the synopsis that the character is gay, nor does it always state who their love interest is.  If you consider this a spoiler, then this list possibly contains mild spoilers for The Heart’s Invisible Furies, Simon Vs. the Homo Sapien Agenda, Six of Crows/ Crooked Kingdom,The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue & A Gathering of Shadows / A Conjuring of Light

I will do my best to make this as non-spoilery as possible 🙂

–Discuss your preferred fancasts for some of your favorite characters. (Fancasts means actors you’d like to play your favorite characters or imagine your favorite characters as)

Instead of doing my favorite fancasts, I decided I would come up with fancasts for some of my recent reads.   Coming up with this list was so much fun!

Let’s see who I would cast to play characters in a few of my recent reads…

September 13th: Books to Read without the Synopsis
–We all know that some synopsis writers spoil events that happen halfway through the book or have heard reviewers say “its best to go into this one blind.” Discuss those books.

April 19th: Favorite LGBTQ+ Reads
–Talk about your favorite books that feature LGBTQ+ characters or are by LGBTQ+ authors.

I decided for this topic, I would be featuring books with LGBTQ+ main characters, as opposed to secondary & supporting characters.  I will admit that books that feature LGBTQ+ main characters has been a big gap in my reading.  I have made a conscious effort to change this over the past year.

Here are a few books with LGBTQ+ main characters that I would recommend…
