🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈 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.
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 – André 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 🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈

I loved Girls of Paper and Fire!
[…] of reviews and TBRs. Which I guess makes this a lot easier. I’m actually going to go with my Pride month TBR post because it showcases such incredible queer books and it took me SO long to actually narrow it […]
