November Possibility Pile

It’s the start of another month so that means it’s time for another monthly possibility pile! This November I’m hoping to also step out of my comfort zone (again) but this time with Non-Fiction November!

It’s not that I don’t like NF books, it’s just that a lot of the time the facts, figures and ‘plain’ writing makes it hard to concentrate. I wouldn’t go so far as to say it’s like reading a textbook but I usually find myself reading the same paragraph countless times and my attention strays very easily! But I’m hoping to give NF November a go because I’ve actually added a few NF books to my physical shelf and I’m keen to get them read (so they don’t linger untouched forever lol). November isn’t going to be as hectic for me compared to October but I’m not going to be too ambitious with my pile, plus I’m definitely planning to read other books to break up the NF reads too! So without further ado, here are the books that I’m hoping to read this month:

Have you read any of these NF books or are they also on your TBR? Which one do you recommend I start out with?

Pride Month Possibility Pile!

We’re well into our first week of June so this post is a little late, but I still thought I’d take the time to post my possibility pile for June, which is Pride month! As with many others in the book community, I’m hoping to read a lot more LGBTQIA+ reads this month in celebration. I actually had more diverse books about and written by LGBTQIA+ authors on my shelves (both physical and Kindle) than I initially thought. I’ve seen a lot of hype and heard a lot of praise for the majority of these books so I’m quite excited to dive in and finally tick them off my TBR list this month!

OK, is this list of 15 books entirely too ambitious?! Yes. Maybe. Ha! This isn’t even including the other non LGBTQIA+ books I want to read this month! But y’all, there are just SO MANY BOOKS and I’m not one to cut down any list, rather I’m known to add to them. Who knows, maybe I will be able to power through all of these books or a majority of them by the end of the month. Maybe I’ll retreat into my shell of complete introversion and embrace the increasingly dominant book-cave-dweller spirit in me to recover from all the work stress this month. It’s honestly looking more possible by the minute! But I digress, this list merely scratches the surface of the many amazing diverse books out there, many of which I know aren’t even on my radar yet. So I’m hoping you can give me some recommendations for more LGBTQIA+ books to read–your favorites, your most anticipated, even the ones you thought were just a bit of alright, but you think others might like more than you!
