I am reading and absolutely loving #mglit fantasy TILLY AND THE BOOKWANDERERS by Anna James. It is such a deliciously magical bookish novel about Tilly, a girl who loves to read who lives with her grandparents in a bookshop and starts to see and then be able to talk with her favorite characters from books including Anne of Green Gables. (I love Anne of Green Gables and I think the author captured her perfectly). She also spots her grandparents talking to their favorite authors.

I love the idea of characters from books coming to life, and it reminds me a bit of INKHEART by Cornelia Funke (another of my favourites). I love books about books, especially when they are magical. It also deals with loss of a parent, being left out, and discovering new friends.

I am finding this such a comforting, fun, delightful, satisfying read that I think it will become one of my favorites that I want to re-read over and over. And I am excited to see that it is the first in a series (Pages & Co)

Reading a good book and cuddling with Petal – two of my favourite things to do.

Reading a good book and cuddling with Petal – two of my favourite things to do.

I am reading #mglit THE EMERALD ATLAS by John Stephens and loving it. I love that the two sisters are strong girl-characters and heroes as well as their brother. Love that they stick together as family, through hardships and strife. Love that there are many helper characters.

Books and cuddles – perfect for a cold winter day (or any day). #theemeraldatlas #johnstephens #mgbooks #mgfantasy

Can you tell I love rainbows and butterflies? (Grinning). And books!

Can you tell I love rainbows and butterflies? (Grinning). And books! To me rainbows not only celebrate being queer and our #lgbtqia community, but also make me think of magic and possibilities. Butterflies, especially Monarch butterflies, have always felt to me like a source of magic, strength, and inspiration. And books, of course, are pure magic all on their own. They transport us into worlds and other people’s lives, taking us from the stress in our own, and giving us so much comfort, insight, and healing.

These stained-glass rainbow butterflies fittingly hang in front of my YA and MG fantasy lit bookshelf, with some of my favourite, repeatedly read books. (I have so many more favorites, but I’ve been buying more ebooks lately than hardcopy because they are cheaper. But I hope to get paper copies of my favorites in the near future.) #rainbows #stainedglass #rainbow #LGBTQ #lgbtqiapride #butterflies
