May 2019: The Month Of Exhaustion, TV That Didn’t Live Up To Expectations and Books That Exceeded Expectations {Monthly Wrap-Up}

May 2019

Hi everybody, and welcome to my (belated) May wrap up!

Today’s topic is all about book-to-screen adaptations and I particularly want to talk about LGBTQIA+ representation on the screen. Though we still have a looong way to go to get great representation on on our screens and not everybody handles it correctly (looking at you, J.K Rowling, Disney and Marvel), there is also some progress.

Some of my favorite LGBTQIA+ books have already received the screen adaptation (Love, Simon) and others are on their way (What If It’s Us, They Both Die At The End).

But there’s still plenty of room for more. So big tv and movie execs, if you happen to be reading this (and why wouldn’t you? haha), I highly recommend all of these stories to be adapted for the screen!

After having spent all my free time for the past 6 or so months on our home renovations and moving, I am happy to say I have finally moved and am settled in, and though not everything is done yet, I do really hope to be able to get back to a regular blogging routine now.
