June 🌈Pride Progress

Hello everyone! I’m just checking in as the month is about halfway over now. I have seen so many supportive and loving posts about the LGBTQIA+ community and it has been so great to share in this with everyone! I didn’t get around to posting an original list of goals for the month but I’m going to put up some have’s and will’s in this entry because I want to get my opinions out there too!

The have’s…

These Witches Don’t Burn is about real (fictional) Salem witches trying to sleuth out the new Blood Witch in town. I loved the YA cozy mystery vibes of the story, and the hype of witchcraft in Salem!

Hot Dog Girl was a book that actually had a lot more to it than I expected. I love a book with a good message to it. And hey, tell me that cover isn’t adorable!

And finally–my new favorite book of 2019–Red, White & Royal Blue. I listened to the audiobook of this one and people, THIS. IS. EVERYTHING. I truly enjoyed every minute of this book. If you haven’t read it, go do it. There is humor, there is love, and just everything.

The will’s…


The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue — Yes, believe it or not, I haven’t read this book. I have heard so many people say it is a great read so I am taking it on vacation with me and I am so excited to read it!

Fence has been on my TBR for a long time and I just haven’t found a copy to pick up. I books vs hard copies are one thing, but I just can’t do e-graphic novels. These I have to find the real things, and my library has a terrible graphic novel section.

So that’s where I’m at. I may stray from my little “TBR” or I may stick to it. One never knows with me. Plus I have at least 1-2 more audiobooks to pick from and read this month. Could be anything!

Are you reading any LGBTQIA+ books this month? Do you have any recommendations to share?

  1. I wanted to read Hot Dog Girl just for the cover, it looks so cute! but the whole ‘girl going after a boy who’s in a relationship’ thing made me feel a bit uncomfortable? :/


    1. Yes!! And it is definitely central (and centrally awkward) in the book. But–not to be spoilery but its probably obvious–the resolution is also handled very well, I felt. I wouldn’t have enjoyed the book so much if it hadn’t been. So there’s my two cents worth! 😉

      Liked by 1 person

  2. Great list! I didn’t know Hot Dog Girl had queer representation and I have heard a lot of good things about the book too, will add to my TBR!!
    Also, I just finished A gentleman’s guide to vice and virtue and really enjoyed it!!


  3. I can’t believe that I haven’t read any this month but there’s still time! I might still re-read Magnus Chase by Rick Riordan. My favorite lgbtq+ book is Carry On by Rainbow Rowell.


    1. I’ve heard good things about Magnus Chase! Re: Carry On….I listened to the audiobook a couple of years ago and actually wasn’t a fan! 😦 However, I actually just bought a hard copy and since Wayward Son is coming out soon, I’m going to try to read it with my eyeballs and see if its different. We’ll see how it goes!


  4. It’s funny I’ve really just been focused on knocking out books for blog tour, so they may have some Pride reads, they may not depending on which tours I have this month (I should probably know but I’ve had to look everyday to see what I was doing lol) but the last 3/4 reads have all had some great LGBTQ diversity and it’s made me so happy, especially as a good few of those were actually adult novels and there’s just not enough diversity in them if you ask me. Definitely have Magnus Chase though for my soon to read tar list


  5. ahh, congrats – more read than on your tbr left !!
    So you enjoyed hotdog girl? I’ve been wanting to read it too for that cover – but i’ve stumbled over a negative review and eerrh.. idk xD it’s nice to hear different POV on books to see where you might stand.

    also, psst, I haven’t read the genleman’s guide of vice and virtue aswell ..Though i’ve only read 3books so far and dnfed one, ithink only the one dnf had queer rep in it (but it’s late- I can’t think rn xD I however don’t recall noticing any) “please send help” that I got from Netgalley – DNFed because I was just wanting to read something MH related, nothing wrong with the book itself.
