Top Ten Tuesday: Upcoming LGBQIA+ Releases!

Queer books to have on your radar for the rest of the year.

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018.

Today’s actual Top 10 Tuesday prompt is to share books on your wishlist. And all of these books are definitely on mine!

But I wanted to twist the prompt slightly to fit into Pride Month because I’m just not done recommending all the queer books.
