So my plan of reading only queer books in June kind of really failed. This is what happens when you have a million library holds and ONLY books you weren’t planning on reading were fulfilled.
I would say I had a pretty good reading month in terms of quality and probably low/average in terms of quantity. I’ve been slacking on my audiobook game and that is 100% the reason that I read a couple books less than normal this month.
I would probably recommend most if not all of the below books. ENJOY!
