TBR Acrostic: Snowing

I read 63 books in January and my TBR . . . went down by 7, from 269 titles on January 1st to 262 titles on February 1st. A small reduction, but a reduction nevertheless! A good way to start off the reading year.

I featured seven titles on last month’s acrostic and I read two of them (Being Toffee, True Trans Bike Rebel) in January and I read another one of them (The Empress of Xytae) today, which I’m going to count, especially since I posted last month’s acrostic so late.

As for this month, I’ve picked SNOWING as the acrostic since that’s what’s been happening for the past, oh, 28 hours or so. I am super unenthused about shoveling tomorrow, but I did get a paid snow day today and the power stayed on, so I can’t complain that much.

So, what’s on the list?

TBR Acrostic: Belated

I read 52 books in December and my TBR…went up by 32, from 237 titles on December 1st to 269 titles on January 1st. So much for the downward trend! And despite reading a grand total of 603 books in 2020, my January 2021 TBR has 52 more books than my January 2020 one.

At least I know I’ll never run out of things to read!

I featured eight titles on last month’s acrostic and I read three of them (Sharks in the Time of Saviors, Rise of Heroes, Transcendent 2) in December, as well as another (The Enigma Game) in the time that’s elapsed since I’ve gotten around to putting this post up.

And since I’m only remembering to do this post halfway through the month, I’ve picked BELATED as my acrostic for January!

So, what’s on the list?

Best of Rainbow Reading 2020

It’s time to look back at 2020 and highlight my favorite LGBTQ reads of the year! I read a total of 332 LGBTQ books and I enjoyed the vast majority of them, which made narrowing down my favorites a struggle (as evidenced by the sheer number of books in this post).

I changed up the format a bit this year, but as always, these selections are based on my personal enjoyment of the books, not necessarily their literary quality or critical merit.

Without further ado…here are my favorite LGBTQ reads of 2020!
