Pride Month Readathon

Happy Pride Month! I had a lot of fun with the Asian Readathon in May, and I really love the idea of celebrating Pride Month by reading stories about or written by members of the LGBTQ+ community!

This is an extremely unofficial readathon, and I did consider joining one of the dozens of Pride readathons already happening, but I enjoy being able to read with a theme and very few parameters (it’s why I’m so awful at book clubs). I tried to pick books from different genres, because last month I read mostly YA fantasy (and loved them all, don’t get me wrong), but the thing about being a mood reader is that you don’t really get a choice in what looks good.

Our Wives Under the Sea – Julia Armfield (horror)
In the Dream House – Carmen Maria Machado (nonfiction, memoir)
History Is All You Left Me – Adam Silvera (young adult, contemporary)
A Magic Steeped in Poison – Judy I. Lin (fantasy, young adult)
Sawkill Girls – Claire Legrand (horror, young adult)
Summer Sons – Lee Mandelo (horror)
