Yesterday is the start of Ghibli-a-Thon, a Studio Ghibli themed read-a-thon starting today (June 10-June 16) So I’d like to share my TBR. You can find out more by following their Twitter account here.
Also since it’s Pride I picked out a few books that featured some queer representation.
POM POKO: READ THE GROUP BOOK
This is the group read and I’m very excited to read this one. I’m also going to listen to the audiobook. I love the movie as well so I might have to watch that after I read this.
WHEN MARNIE WAS THERE: CHOSEN FAMILY
One of the most anticipated books of 2019 for basically everyone. I’ve heard phenomenal words about this book and I can’t wait to be apart of that. This of course is a book that features a non-binary protagonist who is queer.
FROM UP ON POPPY HILL: YA ROMANCE
This sounds like the cute queer YA rom-com I’ve been wanting to read. This has is set at an amusement park and I love to read about characters getting summer jobs. Also there’s bi rep!
THE CAT RETURNS: PORTAL FANTASY
I’ve had this since it was released last year and I can’t believe I haven’t gotten around to reading it. This has some elements of portal fantasy but is more about the two characters leaving the portal world and facing the real world problems.
PORCO ROSSO: A CHARACTER UNDER A CURSE
I believe this book features a family curse, so that of course would effect Rosa herself. This is one of my most anticipated as well, and I found out the other day that this has bi rep so I’m here for it.
LAPUTA: A BOOK ON FRIENDSHIP
I’ve had my eye on this one for a while because it has murder and an odd friendship between the murderer’s daughter and the victim’s son. Also both of the characters are queer (although I’m not positive on what they identify as).
