My Pride Month TBR

My Pride Month TBR

Hi friends! 👋🏻 I haven’t made a dedicated TBR for Pride Month in a couple of years and I want to get back into the habit of making one every year.

This time I didn’t want to do a Bingo card style of thing where I get Brownie points for including books or authors who identify one way or are from a specific group of people. I just chose books that I’m very interested and want to read, and if it turns out that the author isn’t cis or white, then that’s a good thing too.

I am going to be going on holiday very soon and I don’t want to jump into something too heavy so this one sounds perfect for the end of spring. And even though it looks a little thicker than books I normally read, I have a good feeling I’ll be able to breeze through this one.

Am I a little miffed that the Kindle edition of this book cost pretty much the same as a paperback? Yes, but I’m trying to not dwell on it too much because at least a Kindle edition means that I can read it sooner rather than later. And I would rather read it sooner because I’ve wanted to read this book for ages.

I am a little difficult to please when it comes to werewolf books because I like my werewolves to be big and scary like The Wolf-Man rather than literal wolves like Twilight. From the sounds of it, this one sounds like it has actual scary werewolves which does please me, and it’s by a non-binary author, which I believe is something new to me.

Book cover for Aristotle and Dante Dive into the Waters of the World by Benjamin Alire Sáenz

It feels like it’s been a hundred years since I read the first Artistotle and Dante book so hopefully going into the sequel won’t be too much of a struggle. One of the other libraries I’m a member of does have a copy and my fingers are crossed that it doesn’t get snatched up by someone else before I’m able to go.

Book cover for Plain Bad Heroines by Emily M. Danforth

I didn’t want this TBR to be entirely YA books and while my library does have a dedicated LGBT+ collection, it is comprised mostly of contemporary fiction, which is fine but it’s not what I want to read all the time. We’ve had plenty of stories about tragedy and oppression, and while I don’t know exactly what happens in this book, I am happy to find a modern queer Gothic book.


talk to me!

Do you have a Pride TBR? If you do, what are you planning to read?

    I love this TBR and best of luck with getting through it! I watched the film for The Miseducation of Cameron Post (not the same as the book I know) but it was quite different to what I was expecting. I hope you enjoy it.
    I need to read the Ari and Dante sequel and Plain Bad Heroines (I am very excited for this one).
    I have read Cemetery Boys though and you’ve probably heard this but it was such a fun read!
    Happy reading and happy Pride! 💚💛💜💗

    I actively seek out lesbian fiction, being a lesbian myself. There isn’t a lot of good lesbian fiction out there (or I just struggle to find it). 😅
