In the time since posting my first and second Anticipated Arrival Rundowns, I finally have access to and gotten around to two things on my list. Check out the below two items I’ve been waiting for and finally experienced ❤
Fence by P.S. Pacat
Post: Anticipated Arrival: C.S. Pacat’s Fence Vol.1
It has been pretty much a year since this Anticipated Arrival post and I can update that I have finally gotten around to reading this gem. I am a big fan of P.S. Pacat and her Captive Prince series (I totally have signed copies 😱😍) so anything new by her was a must read. And Fence really is a must read!
I finished the first volume of Fence in one sitting and fell in love. I was lucky enough to have Volume 2 sitting next to me and have just recently received my preorder of Volume 3 😄 For such small volumes they pack in a lot of story. I found all the characters very compelling, the art beautiful, and I really just want more so I can see where the rest of the story leads.
I would really recommend picking up Fence if you see it!

It’s that time of year again! It’s June and it is Pride Month 🌈
Every year in June the history, politics, culture, and people of the Queer community are celebrated. Marking the occasion of the Stonewall riots, the month long celebration is one that looks to empower and educate people, to embolden those to feel pride in themselves and their sexuality. 2019 is extra special because it is 50 years since the Stonewall riots.
To mark this month long occasion, I will once again be dedicating a whole month to queer, LGBTQ, and QUILTBAG pieces of popular culture. Keep an eye out for some book reviews, a blog tour, a comic, a smut lovers reading group post, and a post about one of my all time favourite books.
So no matter who you are, I hope you enjoy Pride Month and have a lovely June!

The videos are fun.Taken from book blurb
But it’s the host who has him coming back for more…
When Seattle-based blind YouTuber Dovid Rosenstein finds Sam Doyle’s Let’s Play channel, playitagainsam, he’s instantly captivated by the Irish gamer. Everything about Sam is adorable, from his accent to his personality, and Dovid can’t get enough of his content.
Dovid’s glowing shout-out on Don’t Look Now, his own successful channel, sends Sam’s subscriber numbers skyrocketing overnight. He has more comments than he can read. And while the sudden surge in popularity is anxiety inducing, Sam decides it’s only right to dedicate his next episode to Dovid…which soon leads to a heart-pounding exchange of DMs.
They may have never met in person, but Dovid’s never felt this close to anyone before. What they have feels worth exploring—no matter the distance. But is it possible to already be in love with someone who’s half a world away?
One-click with confidence. This title is part of the Carina Press Romance Promise: all the romance you’re looking for with an HEA/HFN. It’s a promise!

Hey everybody, it’s June!
Those of you in the know, will know that it is Pride Month! And those of you who didn’t know, now know 😀
Every year in June the history, politics, culture, and people of the LGBTI community are celebrated. Marking the occasion of the Stonewall riots, the month long celebration is one that looks to empower and educate people, to embolden those to feel pride in themselves and their sexuality.
To mark this month long occasion, I will be focusing my posts on LGBTI popular culture. Keep an eye out for posts about how I feel about the term LGBTI, what I’m currently interacting with, what I’m looking forward to, some of my queer favourites and other general recommendations.
So no matter who you are, I hope you enjoy your Pride Month and have a lovely June!
