So in June TBR & Beyond is holding a Pride event called Love is Love is Love. If you want to join us over at TBR and Beyond you can join the group HERE! We also have some awesome live talks with authors in June and the coming months!!
This challenge is based on a word search. So the idea is that you find the LGBT+ related words in the word search and create your TBR based on those words. The words aren’t specific things that you have to read, it is more just a book that reminds you of that word. For example, Melanie, one of the awesome admins at TBR and Beyond just put up some examples of how you can take this challenge. Here is one of those:
Pink = The cover or something on the cover is pink. Maybe you love the book and it makes you think of love – therefor PINK! Maybe the book has lesbians and it makes you think of the Lesbian flag – PINK AGAIN!
Here is the word search.
Now I am not going to try and choose books based on the words. What I will do is read some LGBT books throughout June and then figure out which words fit them best. I like going into books knowing very little. So for most of these books, I don’t even know what type of LGBTQIAP+ characters I will find, so I can’t really choose a word for them. So I will just match the words at the end. Is that cheating? Since when do I care?
These are the books that I 100% plan on reading in June. Leah on the Offbeat & Ramona Blue is both on my TBR for a ReadAThon happening in June. Heart of Iron is the June BOTM for the Facebook Group I run, The YA Book Nerds.
