June 2021 TBR

It’s time for summer reading!

June is going to be… interesting. Historically, it’s one my slowest reading months of the year. But this year I accidentally acquired eighteen ARCs… big oops.

It’s also Pride Month so I’m trying to read as many queer books as I can possibly fit onto this tbr (it’s a lot) as well as #QueerLitReadathon and Whatever You Want-athon.

But I’m not making separate TBRs for either readathon – I simply added some of the challenges to my TBR jar and pulled some alongside some of standard prompts.

All that to say, this TBR is LONG. So I kept this brief and simply linked the Goodreads page and mentioned what prompts and that it fills. Follow the link for a full synopsis!

As always this is broken into sections: TBR Challenges, ARCs, Buddy Reads/Book Clubs/etc.

TBR Challenges

I accidentally chose 10 prompts this month because I don’t know how to count…. And this included prompts I created, Queer Lit Readathon, and Whateverathon prompts.

I also listed any additional relation prompts it works for!
