Pride Month is an annual celebration that honors the Stonewall Uprising in Manhattan in 1969. Over the decades, it has transformed into something more.
And while I see my community start its Pride festivities, more gay and trans people are being targeted. In my town, a rainbow crosswalk was vandalized. However, it is rallying around the residents affected. So I want to show my support by highlighting books I’ve been wanting to read.
I hoped to publish my post yesterday, but I wanted to take some time, do more research, and show respect for the titles and authors. So I hope you love this post!

I rarely do challenges. Frankly, since I’m mostly a mood reader, I rarely write TBR posts. I get so nervous and shy. Yes, I get shy. (I may not seem like it, but I am) So I just let challenges pass me by when I find a new one each month. But not this month. The lovely Kathy from Books and Munches, who I adore, is now hosting Sequel September! Do I know what to do?! No! But here I am.
I can squeeze in more books, but I’d like to have some room for non-sequels. I need variety, you know? So here are my possible choices for Sequel September:
Catwoman: Soulstealer by Sarah J. Maas
I might as well rename this challenge “Maas Destruction.” I loved Batman: Nightwalker. And since Catwoman is my favourite DC villain, there’s no chance I can pass up this book.
Assassin’s Blade by Sarah J. Maas
My body is not ready. I can’t read Sam’s story. I can’t. But I’ll let myself suffer. I love suffering, sniffling, and crying like a three-year-old. But I need some backstory before I move forward with Empire of Storms and Tower of Dawn.
The Caged Queen by Kristen Ciccarelli
I was so happy to hear Kristen was expanding her series. Caged Queen is more of a companion book, but I don’t care. I need to know what happens to Asha. I just hope I get more dragons. Please, Kristen, have more dragons in your series.
Wildcard by Marie Lu
I ALMOST FORGOT ABOUT THIS BOOK. Hit me, please. I am not worthy of it. I’m not. But that cliffhanger at the end of Warcross has kept me on edge since I read it. So I need closure. I just hope it’s good.
One Dark Throne by Kendare Blake
I’ve been avoiding this series like the plague even though I liked the first book. I hate two particular characters in it, but I need to get to this sequel so I can read the third. And I’m loving the whole world in the series.
Which sequels are you tackling this month? Which ones are you desperate to read? Are any of my picks on your list? Let’s chat!
