This tag has come along at the perfect time as I had been planning to do a mid-year post about all the fantastic books that I’ve been reading this year anyway. As I love tags I can compile it all within this one post! Thanks to ReadLikeWildfire and Earl Grey Books for creating the tag! (Addition: this was much harder than I thought it was going to be! Too many good books in one year)
Today is Autistic Pride Day!!
Even though I do a little something for LGBTQ+ Pride most years, whether it’s attending Pride events or reading LGBTQ+ books throughout the month, I haven’t ever taken any steps to celebrate Autistic Pride even though it’s a really important day. Pride events are all too often geared towards non-Autistic people with lots of loud music, too many people, and absolutely no Autistic representation. Even within the book community, Autistic representation during Pride month is severely lacking so I wanted to shine the spotlight on one of my favourite Autistic queer series – Xandri Corelel – by Kaia Sønderby.
