I can’t quite believe that I published my first post one year ago! Thanks for sticking around, new and old readers. I sadly haven’t had much time to read and write since I’ve started a full-time ESL teaching job a couple months ago (those pesky money-making things sure get in the way of my very important unpaid work!). But I do currently have a few things on the go: I am slowly but surely making my way through the second issue of Plenitude, Victoria’s new queer literary journal; I’ve also started Marion Douglas’s thick novel Dance Hall Road (still waiting for the lesbians to show up though). And, I received a review copy of Emilia Nielsen’s debut poetry collection, Surge Narrows, in the mail last week and am planning to read it soon. I have had a few reviews up on the lesbrary since I’ve been MIA from this blog: I highly recommend historical young adult novel Silhouette of a Sparrow by Molly Beth Griffin and food memoir Licking the Spoon by Candace Walsh. I liked, but didn’t love Jane Eagland’s Wildthorn. That’s all for now folks, but stay tuned for reviews soon!
