Today, I will be telling you what books I plan to read for the Queer Lit Readathon. I have eight books on this list. I will tell you the book, then what categories they fit. Most of these books actually fit several categories. I will tell you just the ones that I specifically “assigned” to that book.
It may be helpful to mention when this is happening! December 1-7. That’s soon, two weeks from now. So if you haven’t set your TBR, get on it soon! Let’s get into what books I will be reading!
First, of course, Orpheus Girl which is the Group Read.
Cantoras, which means singers, will meet three: Author of Color, #ownvoices, and Historical Fiction.
Amateur: A True Story About What Makes a Man. It will meet three: Choose Your Own Category – Memoir, Trans or Nonbinary MC, and Non-fiction.
Gender Queer will meet two: Ace/aro MC and Graphic Novel.
The Hidden Witch, this is the second book in a series, will meet Middle Grade.
Unbroken: 13 Stories Starring Disabled Teens. Obviously, it’ll meet Disability Rep, the second is New Genre. I have to explain this. I personally will read anything, so I decided New Genre for me will mean a genre that I tend to not read often. Short story collections, poetry, etc. So this is a short story collection.
Full Disclosure will meet three: Bi/Pan MC, Rainbow Cover, and New Author.
Last, but not least, Blue Is the Warmest Color will meet Translated.
That’s the eight books I hope to read during this week. A lot of these will depend on if it’s available at the library or not. One for example, Full Disclosure. It’s a new book, recently released on October 29th, I believe. So my library has it on order, but will it arrive in time for the readathon? Who knows? I hope it will, but if not, I have backup plans, if I need them. Oh, and if you couldn’t tell, I was going for a full blackout! Kathy and I tend to try to do that, just for fun. If we don’t achieve it, we’re not mad about it. But it’s fun to try and cover all of the challenges.
I will end here, if you have any questions leave them in the comments. If you’re participating in this readathon, let me know what you will be reading. Or tell me where I can find your video/post/picture/whatever it is. I’d love to see what you all are reading for this readathon!
