🏳️🌈Hello and happy Pride Month!🏳️🌈
I decided to join The Royal Bookshelf‘s Pride Month Readathon. I never did one before, and what better way to start than this? If you want to participate, the link will redirect you to the introduction post!
I’ll endeavour to read all of the book in my TBR and review them as I go, but reviews might trickle into the next month as well since my mental health has been kinda wobbly the past few days. I hope y’all won’t mind.
If you want to rec some more great LGBTQ+ reads, do so in the comments or by replying to this twitter thread I started.
That said, I hope you are ready for some rainbows and sparkles, because your timeline will be flooded with them🌈✨

I’ve set up a ko-fi account to support my book expenses, as finances are a bit uncertain due to covid. No worries if you can’t donate right now! Take care of yourself💗
