The Quest for Z: The True Story of Explorer Percy Fawcett and a Lost City in the AmazonThe Quest for Z: The True Story of Explorer Percy Fawcett and a Lost City in the Amazon by Greg Pizzoli
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Super fascinating read about an explorer determined to find a fabled city. It was kind of exhilarating to read how people went about adventuring back in the day without all the technology available to us, how big the world seemed, how determined some people were to discover all its marvels. (Although, I would argue, there are still so much world to see and experience.)

Queer There and Everywhere: 22 People Who Changed the WorldQueer There and Everywhere: 22 People Who Changed the World by Sarah Prager
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A Young Adult nonfiction book about Queer people throughout time from the creator of the Quist app which shares LGBTQ moments in history.

I appreciated the very conversational tone which always helps when dealing with lots of information. Some parts definitely seemed more opinion than fact but readers can usually tell when they get to those sections.

Lots of information and source guides are found for each person at the back of the book because some of them, you’d definitely want to read more about- or even check if what you read was true. Includes a glossary as well.

    These are so new, and I’m so glad to know about them, Earl! Both sound wonderful.
