Please note: this blog will soon be closed. It will remain online, but I will stop contributing to the blog after I have completed my classics club reading challenge in October 2022.

thebookcorpslauraHi there!

My name is Laura. I have a Master of Publishing and Communications, and a Bachelor of Arts with a major in English and Theatre Studies.

This blog is dedicated to (mainly) queer fiction, but I’m an eclectic reader, and will read anything that interests me.

I once read The Da Vinci Code in four Health classes in high school, which is my greatest achievement to date.
