Hello, everyone! Pride month is drawing to a close, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t a ton of awesome LGBT books being released during the rest of the year. So, for my last Pride-themed post this month, I’m going to be highlighting the 10 LGBT books I’m most excited about that will be published during the second half of 2022.Read More »
Hello, everyone! I have seen this challenge floating around and have been wanting to participate for a while. So, I decided to jump in and do it this month. I’m not a huge fan of the theme for this month because I don’t really read classic books all that often. Instead of doing the theme (favorite classics), I’ve decided to spell the month using books from my TBR that have LGBT+ main characters, in honor of Pride month. The challenge and linkup are hosted by Jana at Reviews From the Stacks.Read More »
Hello, everyone! Happy Pride month! Last year for Pride I only read and reviewed books with queer main characters or authors. Most of the books I read this month will follow suit. However, I’m also going to have a few reads that don’t fit that trend due to ARC obligations. Luckily, most of what I read is very queer anyway, and I’m a huge supporter (and reader) of queer books year round. So, I don’t feel super obligated this year to stick to as rigid of a structure as I did last year when I was fairly new to blogging and also relatively new to reading books with queer characters. The last year and a half of exploring a lot of queer characters and their stories has been a wonderful way for me to engage with that aspect of my identity and learn about myself in a new way. I’m looking forward to continuing to read amazing queer stories, this month and all the months to come.
I started this month with the intention to mostly mood read. The last several months I’ve done a ton of readathons, and I’m a bit burned out on having such a strictly set reading list. I have a few ARCs I need to get to, but beyond that my intention was to just read stuff from my shelves that caught my eye at whatever pace felt right. The library had other plans. lol. I had three holds become available yesterday. So, I’ll be reading those books first followed by the ARCs. Then I plan to switch into full on mood reading mode with the time that is left.
Other Potential Reads
These are some of the books that I’ve been dying to get to but haven’t had the chance to read yet. If the mood is right, I’m hoping to get to them this month. This is the no pressure section, though. So, don’t be too surprised if I don’t get to them. They’re just the most likely mood reading picks.
Are any of these books on your TBR? Have you already read them? If so, what did you think? Do you have a favorite book with LGBT characters that I need to add to my TBR? Let me know down in the comments!
Hello, everyone! This has been a really great month. I met my TBR goals and reviewed quite a few awesome LGBT books, which you’ll see below. At the beginning of the month, I decided to read only LGBT books to celebrate Pride month, and I enjoyed being able to celebrate the month in a way that was special to me. I did slow down my reading and review pace a bit this month, but I still managed to post content here daily by doing some new types of posts I’ve never done before. Overall, I’ve enjoyed my progress this month and am looking forward to seeing what July has in store!Read More »
Happy Pride Month! As the month draws to a close, I wanted to round it out with a special post…my first book tag. I went on the hunt for a book tag that was Pride themed and found this one originally created by Common Spence on Youtube! I’ll be picking books that I think embody the meanings of each of the colors in the Pride flag.Read More »
I did okay with the pace I set for last month, and I actually finished my TBR before the end of the month. So, I plan to keep the same total of expected reads for this month. Given that it is Pride month, I plan to read and review only books with LGBT authors or characters in June. If you follow my blog at all, you know I regularly read a ton of these stories anyway, but I want to do something special to commemorate the month.
In total, I plan to read 10 books in June 2021. I may end up reading more than this, but I don’t think I will because I don’t want to get burned out.
My list for this month includes the following books:Read More »
