Each week has a different topic and you just post 5 books that fit that topic. All links will take you to Goodreads. This week’s topic is top five LGBTQ+ books we’ve read. These can be books that feature LGBTQIAP characters or that are written by LGBTQIAP authors. Honestly, a lot of the books that I’ve read with LGBTQIAP characters are books that I read years ago, so I don’t remember a lot about them. So I’m going to stick to books I’ve read more recently.

Each week has a different topic and you just post 5 books that fit that topic. All links will take you to Goodreads. This week’s topic is top five SFF books on your TBR. For those of you who don’t know, SFF stands for science-fiction/fantasy. Basically, what sci-fi and fantasy books are on your TBR that you want to read ASAP? I could come up with soooo many books for this topic since sci-fi is one of my favorite genres (as is fantasy, to a lesser degree). Let’s see if I can keep it at 5. 😉

As a bit of a side note, I decided not to include books that I have on my April TBR since I’ve already talked about those pretty recently on my blog and don’t want to make my posts seem repetitive. So the books I’m including in today’s post will be ones that I likely won’t get to this month, but that I really want to try to read soon.

Each week has a different topic and you just post 5 books that fit that topic. All links will take you to Goodreads. This week’s topic is top five favorite polarizing books. This was actually a bit hard for me because, in order to be really polarizing, I feel like books have to be pretty popular. And I fail miserably at reading super popular books. But I managed to come up with five so without further ado, here we go!
