TBR….PRIDE MONTH!!!!

🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈 ITS PRIIIIDEEEEEEEE…..for like countries other than Australia where I currently reside.

But as I am Scottish, I am celebrating pride this month with a TBR filled with fierce, queer novels and I cannot wait to get into this list!! Because whilst I try to read awesome queer books all year round, June is a month where I plan on reading nothing but awesome queer books!

There are a wonderful 15 books I am trying to get through this month – which is a pretty big ask for me, but there’s a public holiday in June + a few of these have a low-ish page extent so I’m hopeful this is achievable. And for once I am going to be optimistic and so I’ve also made a back up TBR in case I get through all of these.

The list

I Wish You All the Best – Mason Deaver

Featuring non-binary teen who’s parents kick them out

Red, White & Royal Blue – Casey McQuiston

Featuring a romance between The Prince of Wales and the First Son of the United States

Her Royal Highness – Rachel Hawkins

Featuring another gay royal – this time a Scottish princess

Vicky Romeo Plus Joolz – Ely Percy

Featuring a butch lesbian and 2001 Glasgow!

Shatter the Sky – Rebecca Kim Wells

Featuring Dragons and a sapphic romance

Missing, Presumed Dead – Emma Berquist

Featuring a sapphic relationship with a ghost

The Love and Lies of Rukhsana Ali – Sabina Khan

Featuring a queer Muslim girl who’s parents are trying to arrange a marriage for her

Girls of Paper and Fire – Natasha Ngan

Featuring more sapphic girls

Keep This To Yourself – Tom Ryan

Featuring a boy coming to terms with his feelings for his murdered best friend

Deposing Nathan – Zack Smedley

Featuring a raised-Christian queer boy and the boy who stabbed him

We Are Okay – Nina Lacour

Featuring sadness and lonliness but knowing it will be okay

You Asked For Perfect – Laura Silverman

Featuring the character I will probably most relate to of any book ever – the most Virgo of all Virgos, a boy who needs to be perfect but fails a test

They Both Die At The End – Adam Silvera

At least I know how’ll it end right?

Birthday – Meredith Russo

Visits to best friends each year on their birthday as one comes to terms that they are living as the wrong gender

The Wicker King – K. Ancrum

Mental illness + queer boys = good book

My back up list

My back up list consists of a few reads I’ve had sitting on my shelf for a while now and just never seem to get a chance to read! Pride month seems like the perfect time to hit some of these!

The Luminous Dead – Caitlin Starling

More queer women

Reign of the Fallen – Sarah Glenn Marsh

I think this is the only book with a bi character on my list – which is so terrible?!

Call Me By Your Name – AndrΓ© Aciman

Definitely an icon in the queer lit field that I still haven’t read

And that’s my TBR for Pride month! Let me know what you’re planning to read this month 🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈

Paws out,
Rach + Draco
