My Pride Month TBR | (In a Dream World Where I Can Read Infinite Books)

My Pride Month TBR

There are so many queer books that I want to read and I know I won’t be able to get through them all in one month. (Unfortunately, I have a job, which means less reading time. Booo.) But, I thought I would put some of my top picks into a list – a sort of ideal TBR, if I lived in a dream world where I could just read all day every day. Because let’s be honest, that’s the real dream.

I’ve read quite a few LGBTQ+ books, especially since joining Goodreads. But, every single one of those has only had M/M rep. It’s time I changed that, and I think Pride month is the perfect time to do it. This year, my goal is to branch out and read more books featuring different aspects of the community – so that’s what this list is about!

My Pride Month TBR

Let’s Talk About Love by Claire Kann

It’s a source of personal shame that I haven’t read any books with asexual rep, and Let’s Talk About Love is definitely the first one I want to get to! The synopsis promises food, TV marathons, best friends, and a library – what’s not to love? I think the reason I’m so attached to the idea of reading this is that it was the first book I ever saw that actually mentioned asexuality in the blurb. It made me super excited that books like this can exist.

The Summer of Jordi Perez (And the Best Burger in Los Angeles) by Amy Spalding

I’m actually currently reading this one, so at least that’s one that’ll get ticked off this list! This book is so much fun, and the characters are adorable. Coming out stories are super important, but it’s nice to just read a book where the main character is already out and their sexuality isn’t part of the struggle.

I’ve seen this book around loads – accompanied by reviews that promise tears. Now, I am a glutton for book-based emotional punishment, so that appeals to me. Also, cute boys and love and writing. All sounds good to me!

Not Your Villain by C.B. Lee

This book sounds fun and cute and I am here for some superhero action. I haven’t read the first one in the series yet but I think these will be a nice simple read when I do. Also, haven’t read anything else with a trans protagonist, so I thought this was a perfect fit for my theme this month.

Strange Grace by Tessa Gratton

I’ve had this book on my TBR every since I read Melanie’s glowing review. It features a poly relationship – also new to me – and a non-binary character (or so I’ve heard). I’m here for magic and witches and deals with the devil, especially with a side of powerful romance.

I Wish You All the Best by Mason Deaver

A book about a non-binary character, written by a non-binary author had to make it onto this list. The cover is absolutely gorgeous (someone pointed out it’s in the NB flag colours!) and I’ve been told the story is just as beautiful. It sounds sweet and heartfelt and I’m super excited to borrow it.


So, that’s what I’d love to read this month. What’s on your TBR for Pride? And I’m still asking – what’s your favourite queer book?

  1. AHHH this looks like such a great tbr! 😀 I love The Summer of Jordi Perez and Let’s Talk About Love – and I’m actually reading I Wish You All the Best right now! It’s breaking my heart in all the right ways.
    Also, if you’re looking for more books with asexual rep, I recommend Tash Hearts Tolstoy by Kathryn Ormsbee – one of my faves!

  2. I really want to get to The Summer of Jordi Perez and I Wish You All the Best this month!! My favorite LGBT+ book is The Miseducation of Cameron Post, but Red, White & Royal Blue is for sure my second.
