#BookishBloggersUnite – Pride Month TBR

Hi everyone, welcome to the latest #booksihbloggersunite post. Bookish Bloggers Unite was a tag created by a group of bookish friends who wanted to talk about books together.

This month is Pride month in the US (I’m not sure if there’s a specific Pride month here in Australia? In my home town of Brisbane there’s a Pride Festival in September, and the Sydney Mardi Gras tends to happen in February or March? Year round queer celebrations suit me just fine).

This week we’re going to talk about our LGBTQIA+ (or QUILTBAG – I’ve seen this starting to appear around the place) TBRs for the month of June.

So far I have nailed

I’m not sure if I can put into words why I love Kameron Hurley’s writing so much. Nothing is off limits, she wants to push all the boundaries and she’s happy to write characters who aren’t great people but who you end up liking anyway.

I’m currently listening to

I’m enjoying it TBR looks like this:

Revenant Gun is the final in the Machineries of Empire series by Yoon Ha Lee. I desperately love the first two books, and I’m waiting impatiently for my copy of this to turn up.

Foz Meadows’ name has been on my list for a little while, but I realised in the last week that not only is she queer, but she is a Brissie local! (She also just won the Nora K Hemming award for short fiction for her story Coral Bones!)

This one I picked up at my local library – it’s a story set in the US about a gay son born to conservative Nigerian parents, which looks totally heartbreaking.

I recently read Brown Girl in the Ring so Nalo Hopkinson is on my list of people I need to red immediately. This one I’ve picked up on audio (only option from the Aussie audible site – come on guys!)

What’s on your list for this month? Do you have any recommendations?

Also remember you can join in at any time! Just pop your link in the linky thing 🙂
