June Wrap-Up #PrideLibrary19 🌈

So let’s see what kind of pride posts & books we’ve had this month –

Yay! Considering how hella busy June has been for me, I’m really happy with the amount of posts I made. I mean – I finished my last exams and packed everything for moving at the same time. That I started out the month writing a lot of posts saved me.

I also made a bi-weekly update talking briefly about how I came out as bisexual to mom as the first in my family this month, which I’m really proud that I went throught with. I didn’t feel relieved as much as I felt that the life I live now and the one I want to have is one step closer together, which is comforting. As for right now I’m visiting extended family and that’s always — sigh. Let’s not go there.

The Cybernetic Tea Shop by Meredith Katz: read & review coming, five out of five stars!

The Love & Lies of Rukhsana Ali by Sabina Khan: still to be read, but I’ve finally gotten it in the mail at least.

Running With Lions by Julian Winters: read & review coming, I loved how different it is from what I normally would pick up with its sports. four out of five stars!

When the Moon Was Ours by Anna-Marie McLemore: currently reading, I’m 15% in and it’s promising.

Karamo Brown’s Memoir: still not read, I started it and then realized I wasn’t in the headspace of anything too heavy emotionally, so I’m going to save it for a time I am

The Lady’s Guide to Petticoats and Piracy by Mackenzi Lee: still to be read, it’s probably going to be a while before I get around to it tbh

These Witches Don’t Burn by Isabel Sterling: read & reviewed, 3.5 out of five stars

Exciting New Book Releases Summer 2019

I wrote an exciting new releases list for May to July so it’s time for a new one from July to September. There just had to be some overlap as some release dates were pushed back, we’re just going to ignore that detail.

Wilder Girls by Rory Power

Release date: 9. July

Why I want to read it: a queer horror YA where people die of from a mysterious infection?! And Savannah Brown recommended it?! How could I not be intrigued.

Heartstopper vol. 2 by Alice Oseman

Release date: 11. July

Why I want to read it: I already have through the free web comic! I just also want to hold the precious thing in my arms and hug it tight.

Jade War by Fonda Lee (Green Bone Saga #2)

Release date: 23. July

Why I want to read it: I liked the first book Jade City

Spin the Dawn by Elizabeth Lim

Release date: 30. July

Why I want to read it: the gorgeous cover helped, but mostly because it’s a YA novel with “mulan” mentioned in the synopsis and good ratings!

How To Be Remy Cameron

Release date: 10. September

Why I want to read it: I really liked Julian Winter’s “Running with lions” and how he portrayed gay & bi guys and a friendgroup bonding, I think that guy is talented enough that this book will be just as good.
