I (almost) read the rainbow๐ŸŒˆ// 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.

Reading My Rainbow ๐ŸŒˆ// May TBR

Hello ๐Ÿ™‚ I should be doing anything but writing this post right now because I have a bunch of school assignments due in tomorrow and I haven’t even started but talking about what I’m going to be reading this month is way more fun.

I’m feeling very motivated right now (as long as it’s not school related). I’m ready to make May my bitch.ย 

I’m allowed outside the house for an hour or two a day now without getting arrested which is nice. My baby brother turns 14 this month which is also nice but lowkey terrifying. And I have a great TBR planned out.

Last month I read a fair few duds and so for May I’m trying to spice things up a bit and bring a bit of fun back to my reading and so I’m going to be reading my rainbow ๐ŸŒˆ.
