There is no way I’d let pride month pass without doing a post so here’s the first in a series of blog posts for pride 2017! In the past, I’ve done a few guest posts and personal essays but I wanted to take it a bit easy this year and focus on reading. With BookExpo books, review copies, and my own personal collection, I have a lot to read.
I’ve always stated that I read for escapism, and I love celebrating Pride by reading books that allow me to escape and find joy, especially in today’s tough environment. My posts will try to emphasize happy books, because that’s just the way I read. But of course, I can’t resist sneaking in some awesome adventure stories and fantasy books that may rip my heart out. I know not everyone shares my reading taste so I totally understand if some TBR piles will look wildly different.
If you’re attempting to read queer books for this year’s pride, I hope you find yourself and/or your peers reflected in the stories you read. You deserve to find yourself in the books you read, and I hope that you do. <3
Without further ado, here’s my proposed TBR! As always, it’s way too ambitious.
Not Your Sidekick by C.B. Lee
Perfect Ten by L. Philips
Anything Could Happen by Will Walton
Tattoo Atlas by Tim Floreen
And I Darken by Kiersten White
The Sorcerer of the Wildeeps by Kai Ashante Wilson
These are all books I bought but haven’t read yet! I honestly had a hard time finding bought and unread LGBT books which makes me pleased but also worried because I clearly need to buy more books now.
This list is a bit ambitious but I am cautiously optimistic.
What’s on your TBR for the month? Anything I need to read ASAP? Let’s chat in the comments!
