Summer Colours on my TBR

This post is part of Six for Sunday run by Steph from A Little but a Lot.

I like to spend the summer months, when the temperatures rise and the days are so much brighter, with a summery-hued book. Think blue for the sea (or a cloudless sky), and yellow sunshine and you’re exactly where I am.

If you know any book with these coloured covers please send it my way. But, these are the books I already have and that live on my TBR in the hope of being picked up soon.

Books I Want to Read in Summer 2021

This post is part of Top Ten Tuesday run by Jana from That Artsy Reader Girl.

Summer is the perfect time for reading happy, sunshiny books. I even love to find books with happy, yellow-hued covers.

So, I’ve got my eye on some happy books to get me to beach, even when I can’t really go there. Seven books to read, three months to get to them. Which should I start with?

LGBT Book Recommendations

This post is part of Six For Sunday run by Steph from A Little But a Lot.

I admit, my queer reading has been a little lax recently. There are a few books I’ve read recently with characters across the LGBT+ sphere, but I definitely do need to up my game.

These are just some of the books I’ve loved from which feature LGBT+ characters, either as the main character or one of the side characters. If you have read any of these, I would love to hear your thoughts.

I’m also more than open to suggestions, I would love to find more LGBT stories from right across the spectrum. What recommendations do you have for me?

Books I Want To See More Books Like

This post is part of Top Ten Tuesday run by Jana from That Artsy Reader Girl.

When you find The Book, it’s always on your mind to find something else like it. I’ve had so many times recently where I’ve read a book and loved it so much, then struggled to find something similar to it.

So, I’ve put together below a list of the books I’ve really loved recently. If there’s anything you’ve read that’s somewhat like them, I’d really appreciate some recommendations.

My name in books TBR

This is a challenge I’ve seen around the Internet a couple of times. The basis of it is pretty simple – just name out some books that start with each of the letters of your name. Sounds simple right?

No. For this, I’m going to list a book that I haven’t read, and it’s then my TBR of sorts. Once I’ve read it, I can come back here and talk about it. All of these books are already on my physical TBR shelf or on my Kindle, so hopefully this will be what spurs me on to actually tick them off.
