Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by thatartsyreadergirl with a new topic every week.
June 1: Freebie (choose any past topic, or come up with you own)
Oh Gosh, I can’t believe it June already! Where did the time go? Anyway, with June comes pride, so I think it’s about time to talk about LGBT+ books released this year. Unlike other years, I’m up to date on what came out this year, so it’s a chance to do a bit of book shopping for me. Also, I found a list from Oprah that I want to check out.
The first book that caught my eye is a graphic novel by Alison Bechdel. The author of Fun Home, which I haven’t read but heard good things about it.
Since I have seen it on most if not all the book blogs, I feel I’m the only one left to read it, even if it released just last month.
Anything that deals with the topic of Aids and HIV gets me to my core, so I know it won’t be an easy read, at least for me.
I think the author took an exciting point of view here, but I have to read it to tell you more.
I have a gut feeling that this book will make me cry. However, I haven’t found it to read for free.
The title She’s Too Pretty to Burn draws me in.
What’s wrong with me? I’m super happy every time I see there a bi character in a novel.
Not everyone knows this about me, but I love true crime.
The emotion on the cover got to me
I think the title Black Girl, Call Home speaks for itself with the need for me to say anything else.
Did any book on this list hit your radar? If yes, tell me which in the comments.
