Just finished the novel “Boy Robot” by Simon Curtis.


It’s full of queer characters that I’ve been searching for. Since I started questioning my sexuality, I desperately looked for books that had relatable characters. Not necessarily a story about coming out, but one where being queer is normalized. It just is. This is the book I needed 3 years ago. A book that made me feel like a normal person. It’s not focused on romance and sex like so many other queer books are. It comes up, but it’s not the focus.

That aside, it’s amazing! Action, character development, suspense, mystery, the feels! The first half of each chapter is about the main character, Isaak, and the second half is somebody else’s story and hardships. The emotions it will make you feel! Please, read this book! Or pass it on to someone you know that may need it.

“Master …”

Obi-wan is not a fan of selfies so Anakin had to take him by surprise to capture all of his favourite people on one photo.


Favorite excerpts from Elliot’s notebook:

1. So now here comes a real freak idea. The bible’s kinda good. I mean, for a sci-fi tale. There’s some mad vengeance God takes out on people. Dude doesn’t like to get betrayed, and I’m down with that. The plagues and locust shit and that heathen woman Lot’s wife turning to salt - pretty fucking funny. Can’t deny he’s got a sense of humor. And a real flare for the drama. Gonna go to sleep now.

[Mr. Robot writes] Sleep tight while you get your lesson of the day from yours truly: How to draw a cat!

2. Obama is really hot

3. I’ve never had latkes before but decided to go out on a limb. Leon was impressed at my adventurous side. I’ll say it once and I’ll say it again. I’m a dude who likes a potato - serve it up any way.

4. I just have to say one thing - I’m [happy?] to have Leon [with a box drawn around his name]. Wherever he comes from, he’s helping me keep sane.

5. [section about Leon telling Elliot about the show Mad About You]
