Queer-A-Thon announcement and TBR

Hi all!

For June, I’m hosting a queer readathon, in honour of Pride Month! I would love if if you’d join me in reading queer books this June! Check out the bingo board below:

Rules

  1. Just get a bingo, in whichever way you can!
  2. You can double up, triple up, quadruple up on books. If you can manage one book for five prompts, go for it.
  3. The book has to be queer!

There’s a couple of prompts that are a bit confusing, so I’m explaining them a bit more here:

  • Winter themed: a book with winter (snowflake, snow) on the cover, or the cover is blue or white, or winter in the title, etc.
  • A book with a colour from the queer flag: a book with a red, orange, yellow, green, blue or purple cover
  • A book on TikTok: a book you saw on BookTok

Blurb:

Multiverse travel is finally possible, but there’s just one catch: No one can visit a world where their counterpart is still alive. Enter Cara, whose parallel selves happen to be exceptionally good at dying—from disease, turf wars, or vendettas they couldn’t outrun. Cara’s life has been cut short on 372 worlds in total.

On this Earth, however, Cara has survived. Identified as an outlier and therefore a perfect candidate for multiverse travel, Cara is plucked from the dirt of the wastelands. Now she has a nice apartment on the lower levels of the wealthy and walled-off Wiley City. She works—and shamelessly flirts—with her enticing yet aloof handler, Dell, as the two women collect off-world data for the Eldridge Institute. She even occasionally leaves the city to visit her family in the wastes, though she struggles to feel at home in either place. So long as she can keep her head down and avoid trouble, Cara is on a sure path to citizenship and security.

But trouble finds Cara when one of her eight remaining doppelgängers dies under mysterious circumstances, plunging her into a new world with an old secret. What she discovers will connect her past and her future in ways she could have never imagined—and reveal her own role in a plot that endangers not just her world, but the entire multiverse.

Note: if you’ve already read this book or aren’t interested, you can use the middle square as a free book space

My TBR

I’m going to be attempting the middle column down!

A book with a bi main character:

34605974. sy475

I mean to read this book last year and haven’t had the chance! I’m even 100 pages in and just can’t be bothered picking it back up, but I’m making it my mission to finish it next month. The main character, Magnus, is bi.

A queer retelling:

53438195

I had no idea this remake of Norse mythology, about Loki’s wife, is queer but apparently it is! Very excited to read this, even more now that I know it’s sapphic too.

Group book:

52987369. sy475

This book has been on my TBR almost every month since it came out, I NEED to finally read it!

A book on TikTok:

53341666

I’ve heard really good things about this book, I’m so keen for it! It has a f/f romance and an m/m romance. I also heard there’s bi rep and disability rep too.

A classic queer book:

38462. sy475

This is one of the most famous queer classic books, and I’m excited to finally get the chance to read it.
