Reading list: 12 books I NEED to read in 2019

I already talked about this on twitter, so you might have some idea of what books you’re about to see, if you follow me there. But yeah, basically I was inspired by Melanie and her list of 12 books she wanted to & did manage to finally read in 2018. I’m definitely not as good with reading lists as she is, but she encouraged me, so here we are!

I’m pretty sure all of those books were sitting on my TBR since 2017 or even earlier, with maybe one or two exceptions.

What do read during the Pride month

Like I said before, this month I’m only talking about LGBT books!! So of course it’s natural I put together a reading list of some kind, specifically for the occasion. I have no doubt in my mind that I won’t read all those books this month. I’ll be lucky if I read like half! But it’s important to set goals for yourself, right? And anyway, the idea is that in June I will read books only from this list! We’ll see how that goes…

There’s also a little bit of everything on here, to keep things interesting. We have poetry, we have nonfiction, we have young adult contemporaries, fantasy, science-fiction, we have adult fiction… I tried to put some diversity here as well, so it’s not all just books by white American authors about m/m ships.

Some other points about the list before we actually start it:

  1. all the books listed here have lgbt leads
  2. all the books are written by lgbt authors
  3. (though they’re not always ownvoices for the specific rep)
  4. I haven’t read any of those books myself yet
  5. the books are in no particular order

Okay, I think we can do this now.
