I (almost) read the rainbow🌈// June Wrap Up

My June TBR was ambitious. Very, overly ambitious. I set out in June to read my rainbow – reading one LGBTQ+ book from each colour, but I did hope to double up and read numerous books for each colour. And I accomplished this challenge. More or less …


Red – The Girls I’ve Been by Tess Sharpe

Me loving a book I knew I was going to love but put off reading for ages anyways? Wow what a surprise! On the one hand I’m very proud of myself for having read this (finally), on the other hand I’m pissed I didn’t read it sooner because it was so good!

The Girl’s I’ve Been was a recipe for a good time what with the compelling characters and dynamics, edge of your seat worthy action and an interwinning plotline that melded Nora’s life of living the con during her childhood to her using those “skills” to get her and her friends out of bank robbery turned hostage situation.


Orange – Perfect on Paper by Sophie Gonzales

I think of all the books I read this month, Perfect on Paper was probably my favourite and I’m very happy about this fact. Sophie Gonzales is officially on my “must read all her books” list.

I really liked the writing style, Darcy’s personality really shone through. I also loved the relationship between her and Broughman (whose name I’m still not sure how to pronounce properly) even outside of any romantic sense. In terms of the romance, this actually kept me guessing a fair bit as to who the endgame love interest was, or if there was even going to be a main focus romance.

Besides from Darcy being Broughman’s love coach and dealing with her crush on her best friend and the fallout from secrets she’s kept, this book also touched on bi-phobia, internalised and unintentional, which I thought was and important part too.

Busy month with lot’s of books // June Wrap Up

Hi and howdy :))

It’s too hot. It’s been too hot for a couple of weeks now and I am melting 🥵. You’d think after 8 summers I’d be used to it but nope. I forget just how bad it get’s every year.

Anyways, to distract me from the heat, today I am going to be talking about the books I read in June.

June was a weird month for me. I had a lot going on: my drivers test, an exam that was literally going to decide my future, and then just a lot of everyday boring life stuff I had to help with. All that being said though, I’m really happy with the 11 books I read!

Of course, it was Pride Month so I tried my best to get to a wide range of LGBTQ+ books. Normally at this point in the year I’m super busy with end of year exams so I don’t get to participate as much as I’d like so I’m glad I had that chance this year.

June Wrap Up

We’ve made it through another month people. Round of applause for us👏. I feel like we should all get a prize at the end of every month this year. A participation trophy at the very least. We deserve it.

Truthfully. I don’t remember much of what happened this month. Before checking my Goodreads and my handy-dandy notebook I didn’t think I’d read that much this month but I’ve actually read 7 books and 1 little novella.

At first I was like “oh is that it?” because the past couple of months I’ve been reaching that 10 book a month goal so 7 seems like a let down but no. 7 books is great. Me from a couple of months ago would be thrilled with 7 books in one month and the final month of school no less!
