Review: Straight by Chuck Tingle

Have you read Chuck Tingle yet?!  Straight by Chuck Tingle  Released February 2021 Dark Fiction   |   Goodreads   |   Amazon   |  Bookshop When a strange tear in the cosmos appears within Earth's annual path, the consequences are disastrous. For one night a year, the vast majority of humans now undergo a frightening mental change, transforming into hateful, rage-fueled zombies who will stop at nothing to satiate their desire for brutality. While not much is understood about this horrific mass hysteria, the demographic it effects is very specific: cisgender straight people. A few years after the first of these tragic events, four friends from across the queer spectrum look for safety in solitude, hunkering down in a remote desert cabin for what is now known as Saturation Day. With a vaccine available for straight people to curb their violent episodes, some predict the worst is over. Others aren't so sure. As night falls, it becomes clear that survival isn't guarant

What I Read In August

Hi everyone! I realize September is nearly over and it's a little late for an August wrap-up but I wouldn't be me if I wasn't chronically late! This is what August looked like. Not too shabby all considering and also considering the fact that I probably read way too much fanfic but I would like to do better because these books aren't going to read themselves and I hope to some day open up to review subs again. I'll eventually get all of the reviews up over here but for now I linked up the rating to the Goodreads review. If you want to learn more about any of the books just give the stars a click.  DNF  (oh noooo!) ⭐⭐⭐⭐ ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ ⭐⭐⭐ ⭐⭐⭐⭐ ⭐⭐⭐⭐ I hope you're reading some fabulous books!
