Reading Challenge: #ReadQueerly2023

Hello book nerds! Happy holidays! It’s a new year, which means our queer book reading challenge continues!

I almost wasn’t able to put this together on time, but I wanted to continue the tradition and keep encouraging other readers to discover more queer and diverse books.

So for 2023, we’ll read queerly!

The goal, of course, is: to read books that feature and focus on LGBTQ+ characters and stories, and share these with others. Again, it doesn’t matter if it’s a new or upcoming release or a backlist title. As long as it highlights and/or celebrates stories and experiences from the queer community, it counts.

Moving onto our book bingo and reading template! This year, we only have four special icons. I have to admit I was a little bit inspired by the fantasy genres or themes we are used to and how we’ve reclaimed them and made them queer. I’m talking about vampires, witches, pirates, and mermaids! I’ve noticed that there are books now that give us queer vampires and queer pirates (maybe I need something to read after Our Flag Means Death 😅), queer witches, and queer merfolk. I want to explore more of these particular genres and I hope you discover some great reads through this challenge as well.

And of course, please feel free to share your reads! Mark your bingo cards and share them to your Instagram stories. Use the reading progress template to share and recommend your recent reads. I also appreciate you sharing photos and reviews on bookstagram or your blog. Just use the hashtag #ReadQueerly2023! Feel free to tag me as well!

You can find this challenge on StoryGraph now! Join in on the challenge and add your books to the prompts!

As always, I can’t wait to see the books you’ll be reading for this challenge. Once again, I hope this challenge will be able to remind you and encourage you to read queer books, uplift these stories and these voices. See you and your books in 2023 💜
