My monthly TBR lists have been going really well lately, and I don’t want to mess that up… but, June is such a fun reading month that it’s hard not to overshoot.
In case you live under a rock and are completely unaware, June is Pride Month! For many of us bibliophiles, that means an abundance of LGBTQ+ rep reads! I’m super excited about that but I also have a couple of other non LGBTQ+ books to read, so I feel like I’m putting a lot on my plate. I read 25 books in April so I’ll probably spend the next few months barely reading at all, but I’m gonna try to finish this TBR!
Note: When I get to the LGBTQ+ reads, I’ll state the rep, but if I happen to miss something, it’s because I haven’t yet read the book and am just going off out what I’ve heard or read about it! If you’ve read it and want to add some representation that I wasn’t aware of, please do!!
All the Bright Places – Jennifer Niven
I actually started reading this at the end of May and have unfortunately drug it out. For some reason I’m just not enjoying this quite as much as I thought I would, but I’m going to try to wrap it up ASAP so I can get to some reads I’ll enjoy more.
My Body My Choice: The Fight for Abortion Rights – Robin Stevenson
I received a free copy of this from the publisher (Orca Book Publishers) and am currently about half way through. It reads a lot like a text book and is very factual and inclusive.
I Am a Feminist: Claiming the F-Word in Turbulent Times – Monique Polak
I also received this read from Orca Book Publishers and am very excited to get to it sometime this month. It looks to be relatively short (176 pages according to its Goodreads page) so I think it’ll be an easy and (hopefully) insightful read.
Oh. My. Gods. (Oh. My. Gods. #1) – Tera Lynn Childs
To be entirely honest, I’m not particularly interested in reading this at the moment, but I need a mythology read for my 2019 Genre Challenge. This particular book may be changed if I find something better to fulfill the requirement. If anyone knows of a good mythology read with LGBTQ+ rep, please let me know!!
All the Worlds Between Us – Morgan Lee Miller
At last, we’ve gotten to the LGBTQ+ reads! I actually received a copy of this as an ARC before it was published but because I suck at prioritizing, I still haven’t read it (and it’s already been published, if that tells you how far behind I am). I believe this is a f/f book, though there may be other representations as well.
Autoboyography – Christina Lauren
I’m so excited to finally read this!!! I’m so glad that I discovered Scribd because it has this book on audio, though I’ll admit that I’m sad I don’t have to buy the physical copy because it’s SO gorgeous. My understanding is that this is a m/m book.
Radio Silence – Alice Oseman
I feel like this has been talked about everywhere lately and most reviews I’ve read or watched have been very positive. I’m thinking of listening to the audio version, but we shall see. From what I’ve read, there is a lot of rep in this: gay (m/m), bi, and ace. I think (and hope) that’s right!!
If I Was Your Girl – Meredith Russo
This book is written by a trans woman, about a trans woman, and has a trans woman on the cover!! I’ve seen pretty mixed reviews on this but I’m excited to read it nonetheless.
- The Miseducation of Cameron Post – Emily M. Danforth (f/f, m/m)
- Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe – Benjamin Alire Sáenz (m/m)
- Annie on My Mind – Nancy Garden (f/f)
- Tash Hearts Tolstoy – Kathryn Ormsbee (ace rep, I believe)
- Fans of the Impossible Life – Kate Scelsa (m/m, I think??)
- The Rest of Us Just Live Here – Patrick Ness (also m/m…. I think????)
I have no idea how well I’ll do with this extensive TBR this month, but I truly hope to get as much in as possible. June is such an inclusive and fun time for bibliophiles and I’m so excited to get started.
