This book started off pretty slow for me. I just couldn't get into it right off the bat, even though it starts off with some pretty serious action. I felt like it took too long to really get to know the characters, and also maybe took too long to feel like there was going to be any hope of them resolving the problem they are up against. Once I got to know the characters, I did love them. And I really enjoyed the world created by the author. ⬇️

rjsthumbelina I read this for the #queerlitreadathon, bc the author is non-binary and the main character is bisexual. I thought the bisexuality rep was pretty well done, without really being any kind of focus for the story. The plot was pretty well done, too. The pacing just felt funny for me, which made it ⭐⭐⭐💫 1w

I loved this book. Listened to the #audiobook via #scribd for the #queerlitreadathon. Ben is non-binary, and when they come out to their parents in their senior year of high school, their parents kick them out. They then have to navigate their path to graduation as well as becoming comfortable in their own skin. Written by a non-binary author. Great writing, compulsive story, and I learned a lot
⭐⭐⭐⭐💫

Physical TBR for #queerlitreadathon. Starts June 2. I'm including The Disasters, which I am already reading, bc the main character mentions that he has dated males and females in the past. I might try to save Red, White, and Royal Blue for #romanceathon in the middle of the month. As stated before, I don't intend to get through all books pictured. It just allows me some variety and choice without buying more books!

Anyone else joining?

My digital TBR for #queerlitreadathon - June 2-8. These are books I already owned copies of on my #nook account
As stated in my other post, I don't intend to try to read everything on my TBR. It's just a list for me to choose from with books I already had access to 😊
I think I'm using readathons this month specifically to try to read books I already own

#Scribd #audiobook TBR for the #queerlitreadathon #queerlit

I am not sure that I will be completing a bingo on the board, but am just using this readathon to read more queer lit, since it's not a subgenre I read often.especially since it coincides with the start of pride month!

I will also be posting a digital TBR and physical TBR. *I'm not going to be able to read all of these - just giving myself options between what I own/library loans/scribd
