You can start and finish this challenge whenever you like!

🏳️‍🌈I cannot keep reading the same Queer tropes occasionally with a magic or sci-fi twist. I need to diversify my LGBTQ+ reading and if you feel the same then please follow along.🏳️‍🌈

📚This is an intersectional book challenge which encourages readers to pick books by QTIPOC. For each prompt I'd strongly encourage you to pick an own voices author for better representation. 📚

⌛There is no time limit on this challenge, it started as a way for me to track my reading but now with so many books added I want it to be a reference page for those seeking to widen their reading ⌛

💫If you have any issues with the challenge my Instagram is @Autumnal_Daydreams💫
