Hello everyone! Welcome to my tbr for a very fun readathon called Prideathon! As you may be able to guess, it is all about lgbt+ reads!!! It starts today, September 25, and goes until next Sunday. There are seven challenges and a group book.
Challenge 1: Book with a trans/ nonbinary mc
I’m reading If I Was Your Girl by Meredith Russo, which follows a young trans girl, and won a Stonewall honor.
Challenge 2: Book with an orientation you’ve never read about before
I chose Every Heart a Doorway by Seanan McGuire, which has an ace main character.
Challenge 3: Non ya book with queer mc
I chose Drama by Raina Telgmeier because I really enjoyed her other books, Smile and Sisters.
Challenge 4: Fairytale retelling with queer mc
I picked Girls Made of Snow and Glass by Melissa Basherdoust simply because it sounds really good and really interesting!
Challenge 5: Book about a queer disabled mc by an author who is also disabled
I chose The Last Leaves Falling by Fox Benwell just because it was available at my library and I didn’t know what else to read. Even still, it sounds really good and I’m exited to read it!
Challenge 6: An OwnVoices queer graphic novel
I chose Fun Home: A Family Tragicomic by Allison Bechdel because there is a musical based off of it that a bunch of my friends like. I’m afraid it will be sad though. 😦
Challenge 7: A bisexual mc m/f romance
I chose Love in the Time of Global Warming by Francesca Lia Block because I like futuristic sci-fi stuff (I think that’s what this is?) and this book looks interesting. Also my school library had it available.
Group Book: They Both Die at the End by Adam Silvera
I put this on hold at the library but tbh I’m hoping it won’t come in on time because I cannot deal with that much sadness. I’m a happy camper.
I don’t know if you can tell (probably) but I put this tbr together kind of quickly because I didn’t know the readathon was going on until a few days ago. I really wanted to participate once I heard, though, and now I’m really exited!!
