It’s June which means it’s PRIDE month. If you have been following my blog for a while, you probably know that every June, I post and read strictly queer books. This year is no different! I can’t wait to get back to both the reading+blogging groove.
Although I will be reading all queer books this month, I thought I would participate in 2 readathons that happen kind of during the same week! I have a long ass TBR this month but I hope to get through these books in the first week!
Read Your Gays (Hosted by Boston Reads Books) JUNE 3-10
- Red: Read a Lesbian book
- Orange: Read a Gay book
- Yellow: Read a Bisexual book
- Green: Read a Trans+ (Trans, Pansexual, Asexual, Etc.) book
- Blue: Any book you want
- Purple: read the group book – I wish you all the best
For Queer Lit, I will be getting BINGO from the first row so yay! There are some other books on my mind I’m thinking of so this list is not completely strict.

I really plan on reading a lot this month and I have some exciting post in the works. I would say I’m sorry for the long hiatus but I always disappear so let’s just say I’m back! And no more school until September so expect a lot of me this summer season!
What are you reading in the month of June? They’re a lot of queer releases (INCLUDING A NEW CLAIRE KLANN BOOK) so hopefully, this will be an amazing reading month!
