I’m Latitude, or Lat for short, and this is my book blog! I publish a post every day, mostly book reviews, and I mostly read queer YA/MG and cozy mysteries. I’m an early reader for my local bookshop, Booksweet, and I am also a young adult and children’s literature student. I’m chronic, iconic, yonic, and I would accept a tonic.

  • Can’t Wait Wednesday | November 30th
    Can’t Wait Wednesday is a book blogging meme hosted over at Wishful Endings. It’s to discuss and spotlight books that you’re excited about but that you haven’t read yet, to get you more excited about your TBR pile! It’s based on Waiting on Wednesday, which is hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine. I […]
  • Book Review: 12 to 22
    Love this book about social media and the effects it has on middle graders; both the bad sides and the good sides! I found this a charming, quick read; it involves some wish fulfillment for middle-graders and also how sometimes that wish fulfillment isn’t all you thought it would be. Also, major plot hole: kids […]
  • Book Review: The Two Wrong Halves of Ruby Taylor
    This fantastic book for middle-graders examines traditions and how they are important and also important to break, Being Jewish and Also Not Jewish Enough, and how difficult family can be. I loved this book; it’s a good addition to any middle-grade library. Five stars.

  • Book Review: My Government Means to Kill Me
    You cannot read this as an ebook. You need to get a physical copy, because this book is stuffed with footnotes; footnotes about the time that it’s set in, footnotes to help you better understand the book. Instead of a historical fiction novel that takes place fully in the past, the author acknowledges that people […]
  • Modern Asian Baking At Home
    There is SUCH a wide variety of recipes in here, and I really appreciated all the different uses for matcha especially, and the wide variety of cheesecakes. The instructions are easy to follow and the book is formatted very well, so that ingredients and instructions don’t co-mingle on the page. I love the asides by […]

  • Book Review: In the Event of Love
    Look. This is the perfect holiday Hallmark queer love story your heart wants. It’s like AS SEEN ON TV but infinitely better because it’s two girls kissing and one of them is a lumberjack. Lumberjane? It’s heartwarming, sappy-sweet, and why did this come out in August? It’s because you need to buy it ahead of […]
  • Book Review: Booked on a Feeling
    The thing about requesting romance novels on NetGalley is that later you have to review them. Most of the time I feel so stupidly neutral about a straight romance that I feel like a zombie walking around going “I had fun! It wasn’t great, but it wasn’t bad!” I read this as an audiobook egalley […]
  • Book Review: Prayer for the Crown-Shy
    Hey. Hey, you. Did you know that “cozy” as a genre descriptor no longer applies to Just Mysteries? That’s right, we’ve got cozy romances now, we’ve got cozy fantasy, and even, incredibly, cozy sci-fi by the incredible and inimitable Becky Chambers. The only flaw about this book is that it’s so short, and also I […]
