Pride Month 2022 Challenge

Hosted by neoprincex

67 participants, 221 books added

Starts: Wednesday, 01 June 2022

Ends: Thursday, 30 June 2022

For Pride month 2022 let's try and diversify our queer literature. All books should be by queer authors, about queer protagonists, or about queer issues. The prompts then add an additional qualifier. 
You can use one book for as many prompts as you like. The first 4 prompts need to be completed for the challenge, while the 2 Bonus prompts are for the quick readers, those that find books to fit multiple prompts or whoever feels like it.  

Happy reading and happy pride folks.🌈🥳
