June TBR

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!!

To Read…

All the Bright PlacesAll the Bright Places – Jennifer Niven

Goodreads | Amazon | Barnes & Noble

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 RightsMy Body My Choice: The Fight for Abortion Rights – Robin Stevenson

Goodreads | Amazon | Barnes & Noble

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 TimesI 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)Oh. My. Gods. (Oh. My. Gods. #1) – Tera Lynn Childs

Goodreads | Amazon | Barnes & Noble

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 UsAll the Worlds Between Us – Morgan Lee Miller

Goodreads | Amazon | Barnes & Noble

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.

AutoboyographyAutoboyography – Christina Lauren

Goodreads | Amazon | Barnes & Noble

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 SilenceRadio Silence – Alice Oseman

Goodreads | Amazon | Barnes & Noble

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 GirlIf I Was Your Girl – Meredith Russo

Goodreads | Amazon | Barnes & Noble

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.

 

Possible Reads…

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.

What are you reading this month? Talk to me (:

  1. I’m looking forward to your thoughts on If I Was Your Girl! I’m planning to read a lot of queer sci-fi this month. I’m scheduled to be on the road for 15 whole days for my job so I figured I would be a little more indulgent with my TBR and maybe neglect the ARCs I should be reading.

    1. I went ahead and bought it for my Kindle & I’m waiting on my Scribd titles to be available, so it’ll probably be one I read here soon! I’m excited about it. I’ve only read one book (that I can remember) that has trans rep in it and I definitely need to add to that and do better, so I’m really glad that Pride Month reminded me of all the reps I’ve been unconsciously neglecting! And oh wow, 15 days on the road sounds… interesting! I guess it can be good or bad depending on whether you enjoy that or not 😅 But it’s definitely OK to neglect some ARCs and hit that TBR and get some backlists done! Even though I shouldn’t, I tend to neglect ARCs all the time. That’s a big reason I decided this year to request a lot less!

      1. Haha, that’s what I’m telling myself at least. Without dipping into the backlist every now and then things can get a little dull. 🙂
