Oh, looks like you found my blog!
My name is Izzi and this is where I review the books I read! I’m a proud Ravenclaw with the occasional Slytherin and Hufflepuff moments (just not Gryffindor please), and while I read pretty much everything, I particularly love LGBT+ fiction and non-fiction, diverse texts and feminist writing in general, epic/high fantasy stories, and books set in Nigeria. I even read German books every now and then. I write monthly wrap-ups and I also review books separately when I have a lot to say (which is more often than not), so you will definitely find lots and lots of bookish recommendations.
Besides books I’m also really interested in LGBT+ themed movies, which is why I started a weekly (ish) series called Queer Movie Friday. In September of 2016 I moved to Norwich to study English Literature at the University of East Anglia, so I am now officially a book blogger from the UK!
Before you venture deeper into my blog, I want to warn you: I have a terrible sense of humour, and I love being snarky. Now, if you’ve come this far, I hope you’ll stick around and enjoy what is to come!
How I rate books
★★★★★ ~ I really loved it
★★★★☆ ~ I liked it but wasn’t blown away
★★★☆☆ ~ It was okay
★★☆☆☆ ~ It was terrible
★☆☆☆☆ ~ It was the worst
About my theme
I recently completely redesigned my blog, and I like to give credit where credit is due, so here are the sources for the images (and other things) I used. Keep in mind that I do not own any of these!
The feather you can see in my header and most of my posts was originally found on Open Clipart, and then edited by me.
