Down the TBR Hole 1.5 // M│M – Boys Loving Boys

Down the TBR Hole - Explination

I’m back with my final LGBTQIAP+ Shelf for my Down the TBR Hole.

Don’t worry, there’s still a lot more books to come, but this is the last shelf dedicated to LGBTQIAP+ books that I’ll be going through.

I have five more major shelves to go through and then I am all done with my annual Goodreads organisation and purge!

I’ve got to admit, doing it this way; through the Down the TBR Hole posts, is taking me loads longer than it would have normally but it is beneficial for me. Doing it this way means that I’m not putting pressure on myself to go through it all in one sitting because realistically I just can’t because I’ve got other posts to do in between! This means a much less stressed and overwhelmed Grey and that’s always a good thing!

Like my other LGBTQIAP+ shelves, I’m not really looking to get rid of a whole on this shelf, but I will be keeping an eye on reviews and seeing if I’m still interested enough in each book so I’m not holding onto books that I know I’ll probably never get to.

I added this because…I’ve heard mostly good things, but I’ve also heard there’s bi erasure so I’m not really rushing to get a hold of it.
Stay or Go? Stay! It’s a timid stay, but for now, I’m still interested enough to keep it.

Cloud & Lightning Separation

So many books about boys loving boys! I love it!

I managed to get rid of only 4 books in total, and move one off the shelf but still kept it in on my TBR, which I’m more than happy with!

I’ve finally finished my LGBTQIAP+ shelves! Next up are my Intrigued and Undecided shelf. I’m not sure if I’ll combine them or not. We’ll see next week when I tackle them ahah. I’m so close to finishing my GR shelf reorganization and yet so bloody far at the same time!

What books are on your TBR?
Is there any you think I should add that I haven’t?
