16 Pride Month Book Recommendations! My Favorite Queer Books with Intersectional Representation

If you didn’t hear, it’s Pride month and I have LOTS OF BOOKS TO REC.

I’ve read almost 100 books with queer rep, and I have SO many books that I could recommend you read for Pride month, but today, I thought I’d narrow it down to 16 books with intersectional queer rep!

Intersectional rep is very important to me, as a queer POC mentally ill teen, so I wanted to highlight books I love that featured it. Too often we see white gay books dominating LGBTQIAP+ book lists, and I wanted to show some love to some other, equally deserving books.

And yes, I’ve pretty much screamed at you about all of these books already. Is that going to stop me from screaming about them even more? No. (But I did try to include SOME “quieter” books that definitely deserve more hype!!)

May’s Moments of the Month: May // I Escaped Hell (School) and Read a Lot of Good Asian Books!!

May, the month of me, is officially over!!! 

And with it, so is hell!!!!! (School.)

I am very excited for summer vacation, and I’m sorry to those who are not yet on it (but I have to return to school earlier than a lot of people so it’s fair). Already I feel so much lighter and more free, and I’ve been able to do so many things that I couldn’t do while I was suffering!!

Unfortunately, I really didn’t read or write or blog as much as I hoped or expected to, but now I have all this time to catch up. (And also, IT’S PRIDE MONTH!!!)

It’s Pride Month and Unsurprisingly I Have an All-Queer Book TBR to Celebrate!!!

Pride month is upon us!!

I mean, I’m pretty much just sticking to only queer books this month to celebrate, but it’s not like I’m doing anything different for it, seeing as I read a huge amount of queer books already. But might as well make it official with a post and all!!

For once in my life I actually made a realistic TBR for myself and I am genuinely excited to read all the books I have on here! (Especially one in particular…)

Beyond the official 7 books in my TBR, I know I’m also probably going to read some queer webcomics because I love them so much. I also expect that I’m still going to have more time to read so I have a small list of books at the end that I might get around to as well, depending on time/mood/accessibility!!

(Also props to me for including a MG, NA, and adult book each in my TBR?? YA who.)

My (Mostly New) Recommended Ownvoices Books for Asian Pacific American Heritage Month!!

You might say… Asian books are a part of my brand.

I don’t think it’s THAT obvious though, it’s really not like I talk about them and boost them and shove them in your face all the time. Maybe only on Tuesdays or some other odd day of the week.

So in 100% true un-me fashion, today I’m giving you a few (mostly new) ownvoices Asian book recommendations that you should read for Asian Pacific American Heritage Month!! And because you all can see that I don’t talk about Asian books often, you know that this is a very big deal!!!!

May’s Moments of the Month: April // Failed at Blogging and Writing… But At Least I Read a Lot of Books!!

April was a bit of a wild month, to say the least.

Also, can you believe this is only the second official monthly recap I’ve done this year?? (Taking a hiatus messed me up!)

There were a lot of things I fell short in, but I did succeed in one thing, which is one more thing than I usually succeed in!! I never remember April actually exists (just kidding, I’m dumb but not that dumb!) and this one was no exception. Did anything actually happen? Not really.
