June A-Year-A Thon TBR
This month’s A-year-a-thon is running from the 6th to the 12th of June. The theme for this month is LGBTQQIAP+. Now this Read-a-thon is running during the Tome Topple Read-A-Thon so I am going to keep my TBR short.
Firstly, there is the Group Read that has been allocated for this Read-a-thon. This book is:
Every Day by David Levithan
Every day a different body. Every day a different life. Every day in love with the same girl.
There’s never any warning about where it will be or who it will be. A has made peace with that, even established guidelines by which to live: Never get too attached. Avoid being noticed. Do not interfere.
It’s all fine until the morning that A wakes up in the body of Justin and meets Justin’s girlfriend, Rhiannon. From that moment, the rules by which A has been living no longer apply. Because finally A has found someone he wants to be with—day in, day out, day after day.
The other book I would like to be able to read during this Read-A-Thon is:
Simon vs the Homo Sapien Agenda by Becki Albertalli
Sixteen-year-old and not-so-openly gay Simon Spier prefers to save his drama for the school musical. But when an email falls into the wrong hands, his secret is at risk of being thrust into the spotlight. Now Simon is actually being blackmailed: if he doesn’t play wingman for class clown Martin, his sexual identity will become everyone’s business. Worse, the privacy of Blue, the pen name of the boy he’s been emailing, will be compromised.
With some messy dynamics emerging in his once tight-knit group of friends, and his email correspondence with Blue growing more flirtatious every day, Simon’s junior year has suddenly gotten all kinds of complicated. Now, change-averse Simon has to find a way to step out of his comfort zone before he’s pushed out—without alienating his friends, compromising himself, or fumbling a shot at happiness with the most confusing, adorable guy he’s never met.
There you go. These are the books I am hoping to get to during A-Year-A-Thon for June. I will update after to let you know how I went.
