readathon TBRs

My TBR for the Queer Lit Readathon // my unrealistic reading expectations are SHOWING

Hey everyone!! I’m currently rewatching the 3 last episodes of Crash Landing On You even though I finished the series (and cried my eyes out) last night (guess who stayed up til’ 4:30am??) because my mom got hooked and hadn’t watched them yet. Either way I’M NOT READY FOR THAT PAIN AGAIN hence why I’m writing this post now. as a distraction.

But no kidding I’m super excited for this readathon!!! The hosts, @shan_no_nosays & @kathytrithardt and the guest co-hosts, @TeaHagSarah & @TeaHag_Rebecca, are amazing and I can’t wait to participate!! It’s my first time in YEARS joining a readathon.

I have to be honest I planned on choosing like 5 books but then I really wanted to fill all the prompts (even if I know some of the books I chose work for more prompts than I gave them… oops). Either way I have 16 books for a week which is absolutely insane but some of these are graphic novels that I’ll (hopefully) read faster. I still have no hope but here we are.

But first things first: here are the awesome challenges!!

*Baby disclaimer: some (a lot) of the books I chose are also host recs*


Backlist Title

Click on the pic to see the book on Goodreads!

Group Read

Queer Friends

???

(I chose a book with a transgender MC!)

Female Over 40

I actually have two books for this one!! I chose the one but then saw The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo, a book I’ve wanted to read FOREVER, so I had to add it

^^Also fits the disabled MC challenge!!

Summer Vibes

This one was one of the hardest to find for me so I’m grateful for the rec!!

^^also fits the graphic novel challenge!

Queer Sports

^^also fits the graphic novel challenge

Poetry

Let’s be real I’m not a fan of poetry and very rarely read it, but hey I thought this was a good opportunity to read something out of my comfort zone. Hopefully I’ll like it!!

Non-Coming Out

I just have to mention how much I LOVE this prompt. Usually LGBTQ+ stories are about coming out or are a big part of the story and I can’t wait to read one where it’s not the case!

^^hehe i keep being like “also fits the graphic novel challenge!” as if it wasn’t OBVIOUS

Graphic Novel / 5 Star Prediction

I honestly had no idea what to choose for the 5 star prediction so I went with this one because I’ve heard so many amazing things about it!! But tbh I think a few of these books will be 5 star reads…

💀💀 also fits the you know what

Rainbow Cover

I struggled so much with this one so yay for recs!!

Also you guys have no idea HOW EXCITED I am to read this!! Walking North’s (Ari North) drawing style is amazing and I’m so excited that she did a webtoon. I knew her from some Throne of Glass fanart she did that I looooove 😍

BTW, here’s the link to the webtoon

Host Rec

Let’s pretend half of these aren’t host recs already, yeah?

and it’s a novella which thank god 😭

Bi / Pan MC

I hesitated a lot with this one, I was thinking of rereading Red, White & Royal Blue (I want to reread it so bad RIP) but I chose to read something new instead!

Disabled MC

Besides Eight Kinky Nights that also fits this challenge…

aLsO FiTs ThE GrApHiC NoVeL ChAllEnGe

Non-Fiction

aLsO FiTs ThE GrApHiC NoVeL ChAllEnGe

I was gonna say AND THAT’S ALL FOLKS but hey “that’s all” oh my god me and my 16 books are SO STUPID T-T. I’m never gonna make it but you know what I’ll try!!! We’ll see who knows maybe I can do it 😂

Are you participating in this fifth round of the Queer Lit Readathon? If yes what are some books on your TBR you’re excited about? Tell me all about it in the comments!


Lots of love!!❤️
