🌈 LGBTQ+ Books on my Radar 🌈

❄️Winter TBR❄️

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday prompt is the books I plan to read this Winter! I thought for this season that I would circle back to last years Winter TBR I created and catch up and complete the books that I still haven’t read and the sequels to the other books on the list!

Opening Lines

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday prompt is a freebie so I decided to go with a prompt from around this time last year which was opening lines. Just like last year I decided to go with the first line from 10 books on my physical TBR! These are all very high on my reading list and seeing some of these opening lines definitely makes me excited to get into a few of them!!

Books I’ve Read but Won’t be Purchasing

Today I decided to redo a TTT prompt I did around this time last year which was books I’ve read but won’t be purchasing. I’m still somewhat on a book buying ban and have restricted myself to only purchasing books that I’ve rated ⭐️4/5 stars or higher so these are 10 books that I rated lower than that, which I probably won’t be purchasing for my personal collection.
