April 19th: Favorite LGBTQ+ Reads
–Talk about your favorite books that feature LGBTQ+ characters or are by LGBTQ+ authors.

I decided for this topic, I would be featuring books with LGBTQ+ main characters, as opposed to secondary & supporting characters.  I will admit that books that feature LGBTQ+ main characters has been a big gap in my reading.  I have made a conscious effort to change this over the past year.

Here are a few books with LGBTQ+ main characters that I would recommend…

April 5th: Top SFF Books on Your TBR *Booktube SFF Awards Babble Crossover Topic!*
–Talk about the science fiction and fantasy books you want to read ASAP!

If you remember, a few weeks ago (all the way back to March 8th) the theme for T5W was “Favorite Science Fiction & Fantasy Books.”  Unfortunately, my list for this topic only included fantasy books as science fiction is not a genre I frequent.  If you are curious, you can read my post here →Top 5 Wednesday: Favorite Fantasy Books.  Anyways!  I vowed in that post to make reading more science fiction a priority this year.

Here are my top science fiction books that I would like to read this year…

This week’s theme is…

March 28: Top Ten Authors I’m Dying To Meet / Ten Authors I Can’t Believe I’ve Met  (some other “meeting authors” type spin you want to do)

Before 2016, I never attended an author/book event.  I never really knew it was a thing.  Now that I’ve attended a few events and book festivals, I’m hooked.  Over the past year, I’ve been very fortunate to meet some wonderful authors at events that were held near where I live.

Curious to see who I have met over the past year?  Keep reading to find out 🙂

March 14: Top Ten Books On My Spring TBR

Part of my Spring TBR is going to be my TBR for the SOKY Book Fest, which is taking place on April 22.  When preparing for a book festival, I attempt to read as many books by confirmed authors as possible before the event.  The remaining books are just going to be ones I hope to get to before the summer.

Now on to the TBR…

March 8th – Favorite Science Fiction & Fantasy Books *BooktubeSFF Awards Crossover Topic!*
–In collaboration with the BooktubeSFF Awards, talk about your favorite science fiction and fantasy books of all time!

I must admit, science fiction and fantasy are not genres that I have frequented in the past, which is a shame.  Over the past year, I have been visiting more and more fantasy books, but still find that I am not reaching for science fiction.   I definitely want to make an effort to explore more into the realm of science fiction this year.  Since I’ve hardly read any science fiction, my list is made up of fantasy novels.

In no particular order, here are a few of my favorite fantasy novels…
