Link Round Up: June 22 – 28

fingersmith-bookcoverFingersmith by Sarah Waters is one of my favourite books of all time (tied only with Waters’s Tipping the Velvet), so I’m feeling pretty spoiled by the news this week: Fingersmith is being adapted both as a play and as a Korean movie! And if that wasn’t cool enough, you can also take a Fingersmith-themed tour of London!


prairieostrichqueer book club does a lot of cool things, and one that I’ve been especially appreciating is their post diversify your queer reads: 2014 books featuring queer people of color. I’ve been reading pretty much all authors of colour this year, and I’ve been enjoying discovering new queer authors of colour! (Casey the Canadian Lesbrarian has also been prioritizing queer authors of colour this year, if you’re looking for more recommendations.) queer book club’s post is a great way to get started if you’re thinking of diversifying your reading, too!
