It’s Pride Month Bitches🌈// June TBR

Helloo, happy Monday :))

So I more or less had a TBR planned and ready and then I realised it was June, meaning it was pride month.

I’m not saying I only read LGBTQ+ books in July for pride, but I do try and give extra focus to books with LGBTQ+ representation, especially this year because usually I’m swamped with school but I have more time on my hands then normal now.

Anyways, remembering what month we were about to be in, I took a look at my planned TBR and … it turns out more or less all the books I wanted to read were LGBTQ+ book so literally nothing needed changing😂


The first book on my TBR was going to be I Was Born for This by Alice Oseman but … I finished reading that before writing this so we’re going to have to wait till July to find out my thoughts and feelings … or until I write a review. IDK yet.


Hearstopper Volumes 1-4 by Alice Oseman – Yes they’re the first books mentioned but I actually plan on reading these closer to the middle/end of the month simply because I’ve just re-read a series last month and want to get a few new reads in before re-reading another one.

I’m looking forward to re-reading the first 3 volumes of this series and then, of course, checking out the 4th which I ordered the other day. Everything about reading these makes me smile, from the art to the characters. Also this 4th cover is so cute 😪


One Last Stop by Casey McQuiston – I’m crossing all my fingers and toes that this book arrives quickly because I’ve been waiting to read this since 2019 after finishing my ARC of Red, White & Royal Blue.

I haven’t seen one negative review of this book and I am so ready for more from McQuiston. I remember her writing being so witty and addictive and I’m sure this isn’t going to dissapoint.


The Black Flamingo by Dean Atta – This is literally the prettiest cover ever and I’m kind of bummed I have an e-book of this instead of the beautiful hardback sitting on my shelf. I don’t know much about this besides the fact that it follows a guy getting into drag, I think, and finding himself. I also think it’s set in England which I always like to read. I’ll find out more when I read it this month!



Not My Problem by Ciara Smyth – Talking about another author I can’t wait to read from, Ciara Smyths sophomore novel was released just a couple of days ago and I am so excited to read it. I’m thinking this is going to be my next read so by the time this post goes live I might be reading it or already finished.

This book follows a girl who become a sort of unwilling problem solver at school. I don’t know more than that but I enjoyed The Falling in Love Montage so much that I don’t need to know much more.


In Other Lands by Sarah Rees Brennan – Mermaids. That’s it. That’s all I know, that’s all I want to know.



Eat Your Heart Out by Kelly Devos – While I don’t think this has any main LGBTQ+ representation, I do need to read this in June because I’m part of the blog tour. I feel like now more then ever I can relate to a zombie apocalypse story so I’m interested to see how I’m going to like this after a year of our own personal apocalypse.


If This Get’s Out by Sophie Gonzales & Cale Dietrich – I have high hopes for this one and I don’t know why. It’s not like I’ve seen an influx of amazing reviews or anything. It’s just a feeling I’m getting.

I haven’t read anything from Sophie Gonzales, but I did read The Love Interest by Cale Dietrich … and really didn’t like it (another reason I don’t understand why I’m so hyped for this)😂.

I was going to have this be one of my first reads but both this book and I Was Born for This follows a boyband and I don’t want to read them too close together in case I start comparing them or anything. I want to give this new release a fair chance.


Flash Fire by T.J Klune – Another ARC, this time of the sequel to a book I read last year, The Extraordinaries, which is all about superheroes! I personally didn’t think The Extraordinaries needed or was going to get a sequel but I’m intrigued by what this has to offer.

So there’s my June TBR filled with Mermaids, Zombies and Superheroes! I’m excited. There’s actually a few others sitting on my TBR that I haven’t mentioned because this post would be ten miles long but I’m hoping for a fantastic reading month.

I’d love to know your thoughts on any of these books, as well as what you plan on reading this month.

Thanks for reading :))

    1. Heartstopper is well worth the read! You can read it for free on Tapas, Webtoon and I think maybe the authors Tumblr as well. I hope you enjoy it whenever you get around to reading it!!

    1. So jealous you’ve already read One Last Stop lol My copy probably won’t be here til the end of the month because the universe is evil and always makes me wait ages for my anticipated releases.

  1. I just finished reading one last stop and 😭😭😭 i was kinda disappointed. 😞 It wasn’t for me I guess. I absolutely loved red, white, and royal blue. But this book …I just couldn’t call connect with all the characters. The side characters were super cool but the love interest. 🙁 Not as much. And happy pride month to you!!! And 😂 I love your tagline ❤️ that subtle flex when u say sleep deprived reviewer 🤣❤️ great post!
