Queer Movie Friday: The 10 Year Plan | Review

The 10 Year Plan is a gay rom-com by director J. C. Calciano, starring Jack Turner and Michael Adam Hamilton. I watched it with a friend because we wanted something fun, light, and gay, and I am not exaggerating when I say that we needed recovery time after all the cuteness. This movie is literally the most adorable shit ever.

Book review: The Journey Out by Rachel Pollack and Cheryl Schwartz | A backlist guide for gay teens

The Journey Out is a guide for gay and lesbian teens – how to come out, how to be safe, where to meet fellow LGBT+ teens, and all the other aspects of surviving. But it was published in 1995, and I definitely felt it. The information is limited and often outdated. For that reason, I have decided to change up my review style a little bit, and write a list of ‘the good’ and ‘the bad’.

Traveling Lanzarote | Castles, caves, pirates & beaches

If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you might know that I lived on the Canary Islands, more specifically on Lanzarote, before I moved to England. My family still lives there now, so I visit multiple times a year and I’m officially still a resident. When I tell people I live there, the most common reaction I get is surprise – it’s not really a place people associate with ‘living’. In fact, we have more tourists than actual residents, as crazy as that sounds.

I want to be completely honest: I don’t like living there. It’s nice for the holidays if you like lying on the beach or you’re interested in rural tourism and fresh aloe vera products, but for living it kind of sucks. It’s a tiny island, and that comes with limitations. It’s also not a very reader-friendly place. Most of the people I met in the 6 years I lived there loved sports and being outside and weren’t really interested in books. I mean, it makes sense – it has a really warm climate, so people go outside a lot. Unfortunately, I hate dry weather. I like forests and I take a lot of walks now that I live in England, but on Lanzarote I mostly do nothing all day because I just hate how dry the place is.

BUT I’m not writing this post to drag the place, I actually want to show you guys some cool stuff you can do and places you can visit if you happen to travel there. A friend from my university visited me in January and I decided to show her around the island because she had never been. I took a lot of pictures of literally everything, so I thought why not share them! Here we gooooo ~

Hauls

Zine fair haul | Poetry, short stories & graphic novels

If you know me, you know I love short books, especially if they’re published by small, independent presses. There was a zine & print fair in Norwich a while back, and I couldn’t resist picking up some things – poetry collections, short stories, and even a graphic novel!

Monthly favourites | March 2017

It’s almost midnight over here, which is a ridiculous time to be blogging, but I really wanted to get this done today. I bought Dragon Age: Inquisition for the PS3 yesterday, and I am officially obsessed, so that has been taking up all of my time. Hence, no blogging has happened! But today I am bringing to you my favourite things I discovered in March, so let’s get straight into it.
