This post was meant to go up in February but kept getting shuffled along, so hello April! Despite how much I have challenged myself this year, with my 12 Tropes of 2020 Challenge, Hopeful Reads of 2020, and other various things I want to get done in 2020, I still keep finding more books I want to read 😅
My trouble is not only that I see a book and want to read it but I do this and then forget about the book 😱 So the below are some of the books that I have either recently remembered that I want to read or they are ones I keep promising myself that I’ll get around to one day.
I borrowed this book from the library when it had just been released and never got around to reading it. I am quite ashamed of this as it looks like a book that I would love! Fantasy and humour are books that I absolutely adore.
I did it! It’s done. All 25 of these beautiful little squares have been marked off and read 🥰I’ve found this years Book bingo really challenging and enjoyed a lot of what I read for these squares.
While the traditional bingo card won’t be returning next year, keep an eye out in the coming week for my new reading challenge for 2020. Until then, enjoy my final books that finish off this years challenge!
A Matter of Disagreement is a really cute story about two academics from opposing areas of study who as much as they want to hate each other, really enjoy the hell our of each others company.
I really enjoyed the story of these two characters as they tried to wrangle their professional feelings and work towards being friends. It was great seeing that romantic spark from the start and watching as the two tried so hard to at different times hate and like each other.

My Thoughts: A Quick and Easy Guide to Queer and Trans Identities is a great introduction for people wanting to know more about gender, orientation, and self expression. The book provides definitions of words, histories, and encourages people to treat others with respect.
Blurb: Gender is at the forefront of our cultural landscape today. From pronouns to politics to pop culture, people are finally finding a new freedom in the fluidity of identity. Now more than ever, it’s important to understand, embrace, and intelligently discuss the many sides of gender.
She/He/They/Me is a unique and engagingly creative take on an increasingly complex concept. A nontraditional, nonlinear structure allows readers to choose their own path, from a patriarchal culture to a scenario where sex doesn’t even exist, and beyond.
This method of individual exploration will help readers gain the understanding and confidence they need to engage in meaningful conversations about gender.

My Thoughts: Think of She/He/They/Me as a ‘Choose Your Own Gender Adventure’ book. You start the book off making decisions about your sex, gender, identity, and where you are within human history – from here you explore the world around you and what your life would be like with these factors.
