YA Books with Queer Characters that You Should all be Scrambling to Read Right Now!! // My Pride Month Recs + TBR

IT’S PRIDE MONTH!!!!

I know that this month is full of people gatekeeping and policing what can be defined as “queer” or not, but I just want to do something to keep me and this month as happy as we can be.

So today, I’ll be recommending queer books and talking about my Pride Month TBR of all queer books. I’m super super excited to be reading these books; I’ve been planning my TBR for months and I get to finally read these beautiful queer books AAAAHHHH.

Also, I’ve tried to mention all the marginalized identities represented in all the books mentioned, but I might have forgotten some and/or didn’t know the specific identity!  And please ask me for any content/trigger warnings, because I am happy to provide them!

**THESE AREN’T IN ANY PARTICULAR ORDER DON’T MAKE ME PICK FAVORITES.**

9 Things in Books that Make Me Run Towards Them with Open Arms aka What Compels Me to Read Certain Books

So, to the surprise of many, I actually, you know, LIKE books.

I’m getting more and more critical of the books I read, and you’ll see me handing out more 3-star ratings than 5-star (I HAVEN’T READ ANY 5-STAR BOOKS THIS YEAR YET HELP).

But?? All is not completely lost yet???? There are still MANY things in books that I absolutely love to read, and so today, I decided to talk about them! Aka me screaming about my favorite things and then demanding recommendations.

(Also! All the book covers link to the book’s page on Goodreads!!)

Kicking off “Goodbye 2017”: My Favorite (and Least Favorite) Moments of 2017 ft. Me Being Sentimental & Regretful

So if you know me, I like to do things BIG.

I like to scream about things and make a really big deal about stuff that really isn’t that important and also go out with a BANG. So of course, I’ve decided to make a little mini-series for the last two weeks of December (and a bit of January) called Goodbye 2017!!

Yes, I’m very original.

Basically, it’s going to be a mini-series of posts where I wrap up the year of 2017 & get ready for 2018!!

But today, I’m going to be reviewing my favorite (and least favorite) “moments” of 2017. Which will basically consist of me tearing my hair out for two days trying to remember what happened this year, because I remember NOTHING.

THANKFULLY the favorites outnumber the least favorites. (But I probably forgot a lot of things because I have the memory of a vegetable, which is none, because vegetables have no memories.)

9 Reasons Why I Absolutely Love Being a Blogger (aka Me Fangirling Over How Supremely Cool Blogging Is????)

There are obviously many things I love about blogging.

Obviously??? Otherwise I wouldn’t be doing it still. Unless I find pleasure in doing things I hate, which I don’t. (WHO WOULD.)

I was feeling a little bit down about blogging the other day—not really motivated to write posts, not really motivated to read any, so I decided to write this post to help me fall in love again with blogging!!!

OKAY JUST KIDDING. The real reason I wanted to do this post is that I’ve already complained about some things I hate/am annoyed by blogging, but I am most definitely NOT a negative person* so I decided to talk about the things I love about blogging too!!

(But like. If this post helps reignite your love for blogging, THAT’S GREAT. I feel much more motivated to blog after writing this post wowowowow I’m so powerful honestly.)

*Just so you know that I hate everyone and everything and I hate myself and I think death is a really cool concept and I think mangoes are the WORST THING EVER.

Favorite Foods (Obviously Mangoes)

Obviously, I like food.

If you can’t tell. I mean, who doesn’t like food???

And obviously, mangoes are included in the list of my favorite foods.

Also obviously, this post was inspired by my Favorite Authors post from long ago. Do you remember this lovely post? It was the post I was too lazy to think of another favorite author for, therefore resulting in my top NINE favorite authors, instead of my top ten. And do you know what this caused? THIS CAUSED ME TO HAVE A THEME OF “TOP NINE” ALL OVER MY BLOG, INSTEAD OF “TOP TEN” LIKE A SANE PERSON.

And it also caused me to start this little “tradition” of favorites posts. Of course you’re fine with me telling you all about my favorite things, right?

*I will be keeping these glorious flower graphics until further notice. The lovely Sarah pointed out that they are a BIT too similar to Cait‘s wonderful flower graphics, which I totally agree with, so I’m tryna see if there’s another graphic thing I could make with flowers because flowers are #pretty.
