June is LGBTQ Pride Month, which means rainbows everywhere and time for you to finally read all those great LGBTQ books on your TBR. It would be an understatement to say that you have a lot of great books to choose from. And I mean a lot. Consider these swoony queer romances, this list of 2021 LGBTQ books by Black authors to preorder, and queernorm books where homophobia and transphobia don’t exist — the dream. There’s a whole world of amazing LGBTQ fiction and nonfiction out there and it’s growing all the time.

But that still leaves the question of which LGBTQ book you should read for Pride. Lists are a great place to start, sure, and trust me I’ve already added way too many new books to my own TBR that way. Some of us need a bit more guidance, though. The decision paralysis is real. That’s where this LGBTQ Pride book quiz comes in. Featuring a few of my favorite queer reads as outcomes, you’re sure to come out of this quiz with a truly spectacular book to read. And all you have to do to get your personalized recommendation is answer a series of fun questions about your reading preferences and likes/dislikes. Easy peasy, am I right? There’s really no reason not to take this quiz.

So dive on in to this rainbow filled wonderland of LGBTQ books to find your perfect Pride read. You truly can’t lose.
