I have been almost completely absent from my blog this month, with the exception of a few posts earlier in the month about E3, and have been particularly disconnected from anything pride related. I loved Wendy‘s answers for this 30 Days of Pride tag and thought that I would bring you some non-book related tag info for change
For Pride month this year, I really wanted to shine the light on some of the amazing, amazing queer comics that I have come across and which deserve so much more love! Often when there is talk of queer comics there is a main name which always crops up and usually dominates the discussion; Lumberjanes (and/or Nimona). Whilst I do love both of these comics, there are a lot of fantastic queer comics out there which are doing beautiful things with art, narrative, and diverse representation. Many of these are even free to read online, with creators earning money through tips rather than being paid on a regular basis. So, I want to share with you all some of my favourite queer comics as well as some which I can’t wait to read!

I am super tired after a long day out today to the Into the Unknown exhibition at the Barbican, so I’m going to try and shoot through this so I can flop on the sofa. As usual, I have added too many books to my shelves this week even though I am still progressing incredibly slowly through my current books! I’ve also (finally) included my very sparse Diversity Bingo!
Of course, Top 10 Tuesday would go on a hiatus at the time when I wanted to get involved! No fear though, while the creator of T10T over at The Broke and the Bookish may be on a break, people are still participating with their own topics in the mean time! I’ve decided to do the same topic as the lovely Kate (Reading Through Infinity) this week, who exposed me to T10T in the first place, on “Top 10 Graphic Novels to read in 2017”. I really love graphic novels and have some amazzzzzinnggggg ones on my TBR list that I want to share with you all!
