Thin time and gay unicorns

Bücher mit Aufnahmegerät und Kopfhörern

In the 4th episode of the Engineered Unicorns diversity is key. Books recommended include the genres romance, non-fiction physics, fantasy, contemporary, shifter romance, gay romance, alternate history and science fiction, the authors are trans, gay, Italian, PoC or plain old cis gender, but mostly female. The book list is looooong. The Fantasy book recommendation of this month is Gail Carrigers „Defy or Defend“, stylish Vampires and the power of a well chosen wall paper.The Non-Fiction book recommendation is Carlo Rovellis „The Order of Time“, a small but mindbending physics and poetic book.

The recommendations come not only from SandyJ but also from LisaL. This episode celebrates the magic of books and different voices. Black, female and LGBTQ+ voices matter (!!!!) and they provide fun and enlightening reading material, too.
