Dragons & Tea Book Club | June Pick

dragons & tea

Hey, loves! Okay, today we are announcing our June pick for the #DragonsAndTeaBookClub! And most of you know that it is Pride Month, so we really wanted to pick a LGBTQIAP+ book this month! Also, my pan self might have been a little biased with the book we ended up choosing! But not only is the MC of this pick is pansexual, but she is also biracial (Ecuadorian), she is plus-sized, and she has anxiety. And she is discovering her feelings for her best friend, who is Korean and a lesbian. Also, the author is Chinese and queer. And this book just sounds like it is going to be everything I’ve ever wanted! I hope we fall in love with this hard-hitting YA contemporary, with a sapphic f/f romance, together! 💗

And we hope that you all will join us in our Goodreads Group, too! 🐉☕

But we also will be celebrating and talking with you all on Twitter and Instagram using the (hashtag) #DragonsAndTeaBookClub!


But without further ado, our June pick is:

The Dates & Breakdown:
June 10th: Chapters 1 – 5

Dragons & Tea Book Club | April Pick

dragons & tea

Hey, loves! Okay, today we are announcing our April pick for the #DragonsAndTeaBookClub! I’m extra excited about this pick, because the author has made it on my end of the year favorite books lists for both 2017 and 2018! Also, I just love the author with my whole heart and soul and I’m not sure what the world has done to deserve her, or her prose which is a tier above most everyone. But the book we picked is an ownvoices Latinx Magical Realism story, all about a Latina girl and an Italian-Pakistani trans boy falling in love with each other. 💗
