Pride Month TBR

Hi all!

It’s Pride Month and there’s a lot of queer books I plan to read this month. I generally read mainly queer books anyway, but the books on my TBR for June are ones I’ve been meaning to read for ages 😅.

Obviously this is a very ambitious TBR and I’m sure I’m not going to be able to read every book, but I’m definitely going to try!
