You might have noticed that I’ve been uploading a bunch of videos on my new BookTube channel Peter Likes Books! Tonight I uploaded a video My Favorite LGBT/Gay Books A-Z. It’s not a complete list, but if you like LGBT books you’re bound to find something there you like. I’ve also linked two of my favorite Booktubers below the video so you can check out their lists as well. Check out my video HERE and tell me what some of your favorite LGBT books are in the comment section under the video!
This week has been super exciting for me! I finally started my Booktube channel Peter Likes Books and actually posted my very first book haul video EVER! Please go check it out and if you like it, subscribe to my channel! Love you guys!
I’ve kind of gone a little bit crazy lately buying books, but now that I have a book blog and a bookstagram, I have a reason to buy books. I mean, I’ve always been addicted to buying books, but now I really have a reason! Today I went to Half Price Books and found about twenty books to buy, but settled on the eight below!
Sundays are perfect reading days. I love to sleep in late(really late!), make some strong coffee in my percolator or drive through Starbucks for a Venti Iced Coffee with two shots of espresso and two equal(in case you wondered or wanted to buy me a coffee) and then I drive over to Barnes and Noble or Half Price Books, if not both. The entire time I’m either jamming out to my favorite DJ on Soundcloud or listening to an audio book on Audible. Right now I’m listening to Songs for the Missing by Stewart O’Nan, but it’s much better listened to at night because it’s a little bit spooky.
Spending Sundays in bookstores makes me truly happy. I don’t have to rush home and I know later I can fall asleep on the couch or in bed while reading a book. Sundays are good days for junk food and thunderstorms, naps and intriguing books. Sundays are the perfect reading day!
Today I’m reading The List by Siobhan Vivian, a scandalous little book that reminds me a little bit of Mean Girls, but who doesn’t like that? The book is almost too predictable in the first few chapters that I just know Vivian is going to spin the story and whip up some true scandal. It’s a quick read and I’m already finding myself flipping through the pages. It’s the perfect Sunday read because you can finish it in just a few hours!
I picked up my copy at Meijer, but you can find it anywhere including Target and all local bookstores! Stay tuned for my review later in the week and my review of Dumplin’ by Julie Murphy later today!
Hey there! Just wanted to send out a quick welcome not to everyone and thank you following me on this new journey. If you know me, or follow any of my other blogs or adventures, you’re probably thinking, “Here we go again. Peter’s starting something new.”
Yep, it’s true. I am starting a new adventure in my life and one that I’ve thought long and hard about over the past few weeks. Being that I have always loved to read, am in fact, obsessed with everything to do with books and reading, it only makes sense that I enter the world of book blogging. So…here I am. And it feels good.
I plan on doing book reviews, of course, but I also plan on doing lists and giveaways and challenges and all kinds of crazy stuff. Anyone who has followed me in the past knows I don’t do anything in a conventional manner so you can rest assured that this will be a more crazy, eccentric, obsessive, yet always rigorously honest, view of books and all things bookish.
In June, once I have completed my next novel, I am planning on starting a sister BookTube channel on YouTube. (I can already see you guys laughing and shaking your heads. Another YouTube channel??? Yes! So get over it!)
I LOVE BOOKS…and this new world is where I want to be. So, come along with me…if you dare!
