Hello lovelies and Happy Pride month!! 🌈
I am soo happy that we’re in June and that so many queer books are getting the attention they deserve!
I finished my school year on June 2nd, (which explains my absence) but I am back and I now have a lot of free time on my hands and I want to read as much as I can this month!
I identify as a panromantic demisexual but I’m also fine with the bisexual label. And here are my flags!
I’m trying to diversify my shelves as much as I can and I have found a great bingo on instagram to do so (@onceandfutuebooknerd and @bookstorevibe).
So here are my June Hopefuls:
Trans/ genderfluid/non-binary mc: Cemetery Boys by Aiden Thomas Ace/Aro mc: Bloody Spade by Brittany M. Willows (ARC) Queer rep in a non-wetsern setting: Sweethand by N.G Peltier Queer book by a BIPOC author: Ace of Spades by Faridah Àbíké-Íyímídé Queer x neurodiverse/ disabled mc: Something to Talk about by Meryl Wilsner Fat x queer mc: Off the record by Camryn Garrett A book celebrating queer joy: Cool for The Summer by Dahlia Adler and One Last Stop by Casey McQuiston Non-fiction queer book (I really struggle with non-fiction so I'm skipping this one). Queer historical fiction: Lying With Lions by Annabel Fielding
And I’m also going to co-host a book club on Instagram (let me know if you want to join) and we’re reading Hani and Ishu’s Guide to Fake Dating by Adiba Jaigirdar!! I can’t wait to receive my copy and read this one . I have also loved Birthday Girl by Penelope Douglas so I cannot wait to read Tryst Six Venom which is sapphic and got published on June 3rd!
What are some books on your June TBR? Let me know in the comments!
