Queerly Reads is a cozy corner of the internet dedicated to word-based queer stories. This definition leaves room for stories catered to all ages, about all types of identities, sweeping across all genres.
Hannah (that's me) started this site after leaving Brooklyn, New York and her favorite neighborhood bookstore, Greenlight Books. At Greenlight, fiction books are lumped together regardless of genre, and the average reader can find scifi and classics sitting right beside each other.
Queerly Reads embraces that kind of nondiscriminatory celebration of books—but here, everything we review is queer.
Hannah lives in Japan and is currently working on a contemporary queer romance. She has neither a cat nor a librarian wife, but she remains optimistic.

Hannah has her MLIS and works at a library in Florida. Yes, she does normally wear glasses, oversized cardigans, has two cats, and is always in middle of at least five books. She is aware of the cliché. Hannah is ace, rarely romantic, and, if off her coping game, has crippling social anxiety.
