OKAY, GUYS, WE NEED TO TALK. I mentioned this before, but I accidentally blew a day off doing nothing but reading like twenty volumes of BL manga. And quite frankly, I love all y'all, but I do not have time to review twenty volumes of anything for one post. So, here's what we're doing: for the next month or so, posts are going to keep going until we end up with either eight books or 3000-3500 words, whichever comes second. Does this sound fair?

(This does mean that I'm now running enough books to have a five-post lead on myself, in theory, so hopefully things are gonna be a little more regular from here on out!)

Also, just for the purposes of the Accidental Month of BL, ANYTHING IN THE LIST WITH AN ASTERISK NEXT TO IT COMES WITH A TRIGGER WARNING FOR ATTEMPTED OR ACTUAL NON-CONSENSUAL/DUBIOUSLY CONSENSUAL SEX. I'm sticking navigation links in as well so you can just read the ones that interest you. Let me know if that works for people so I've got a chance to change it up for next time?

Books, graphic novels and manga read:
  1. Hate to Love You by Makoto Tateno * [Jump]

  2. Love Round!! by Hinako Takanaga [Jump]

  3. Liberty Liberty by Hinako Takanaga [Jump]

  4. We Go Around In The Night And Are Consumed By Fire by Jules Grant [Jump]

Reading Goals


Books read so far: 77/150 (8 new this post -- also it's really weird coming back to this number, because my GR count is like 113 now.)
New-to-me female creators: 38/100 (8 new this post)
#unofficialqueerasfuckbookclub count: 8! YES! THIS IS WHAT I AM AFTER! *does a dance*

(For those wondering, the word count came to about 3700. Apparently I have thoughts on yaoi.)

What's with your subtitle?


It's a riff off an extremely obscure meme only Tom Hardy and Myspace fans will appreciate.
