Valentine’s Day is on its way and I saw a video that is this title with book boyfriends and my rainbow fire is so lit right now. I’m sick of like, not seeing inclusion. So let’s go with a few quotes from some bookish girlfriends today. Not necessarily queer lit. Just stuff referring to some of my bookish crushes.

Queer bookish girls exist. Queer bookish girls exist. Queer bookish girls exist. I hope you enjoy your Valentine’s. I love you, no hetero if you’re a boy, and if you’re a woman or of a different gender, I hope someone’s told you that they loved you and that you’re gorgeous. THANKS FOR STOPPING BY AND ENTERTAINING MY UNASHAMED RAINBOWNESS.
