Happy Top 5 Tuesday, book friends! Top 5 Tuesday is a weekly meme created by Bionic Bookworm, now hosted by Meeghan Reads. If you’re interested in participating, check out their blog to get the details and the prompts for each week.
This week, the topic is top 5 pride books from our TBRs! I don’t set monthly TBRs anymore because I found I never stuck to them and then felt bad about it. That means I didn’t do a specific pride month TBR, but I do try to read diversely year round. So, for this week’s post I’m going to highlight books from my neverending general TBR that include LGBTQIA+ characters, authors, etc!
That Summer Feeling by Bridget Morrissey
This is an adult summer camp book, which I love. A recently divorced woman attends a summer camp where she encounters a man from her past… and falls for his sister.
Bookshops and Bonedust by Travis Baldree
The prequel to the popular cozy fantasy, Legends & Lattes, tells the story of Viv’s past, the one that eventually leads her to her coffee shop owner dreams and the romance she finds there.
Back in a Spell by Lana Harper
The third book in the Witches of Thistle Grove series, which tells the story of nonbinary barkeep Morty and Nineve of the infamous Blackmoore family. This series has become an annual Witchtober tradition for me, so I’m saving the third installment for then.
Pageboy by Elliot Page
The highly anticipated memoir from Elliot Page, which I will 100% be reading on audio because I love a good celebrity memoir on audio. It just came out today, so a very happy book birthday to Pageboy!
Mooncakes by Suzanne Walker, Illustrated by Wendy Xu
This adorable-looking graphic novel has been on my TBR for ages, and I really need to grab a copy so I can read it!
There we have it, five LGBTQIA+ books from my TBR! Do you set a monthly TBR and, if so, does your June TBR incorporate some Pride-themed reads? Let me know!
