Introducing Queer Lit Book Club and Our First BOTM

I have been actively participating in a group chat about in making a Queer Book Club where we can actively talk about queer books and help promote the books. The cohosts besides me is Jayati @ It’s Just A Coffee Addicted Bibliophile and Charlotte @ Wonderfully Bookish.

Queer Lit Book Club is on Instagram, Twitter and Discord so make sure to follow and join to join in the fun and discussions!

Anyways, our first book of the month is….

Amazon.com: The Gravity of Us (9781547600144): Stamper, Phil: Books

Synopsis: As a successful social media journalist with half a million followers, seventeen-year-old Cal is used to sharing his life online. But when his pilot father is selected for a highly publicized NASA mission to Mars, Cal and his family relocate from Brooklyn to Houston and are thrust into a media circus.

Amidst the chaos, Cal meets sensitive and mysterious Leon, another “Astrokid,” and finds himself falling head over heels—fast. As the frenzy around the mission grows, so does their connection. But when secrets about the program are uncovered, Cal must find a way to reveal the truth without hurting the people who have become most important to him.

Expertly capturing the thrill of first love and the self-doubt all teens feel, debut author Phil Stamper is a new talent to watch.

  1. I’m so excited for this book club Lori: it’s a really great idea! I haven’t read The Gravity of Us, but it’s been on my TBR for a while. If I can get a copy, I’ll definitely participate!
