The Pride Flag Book Tag

Hello everybody! Today, I’m going to be doing the Pride Flag Book Tag, which I found on Charlotte’s blog, in honour of Pride Month. Onto the post!

Red (Life) – A book with a spirited protagonist totally proud of who they are. Someone who gives you LIFE!

Daisy Wells knows exactly who she is, and what she wants, and she did from the very first book of the Murder Most Unladylike series. I love her so very much.

Orange (Healing) – A book that made you, as the reader, find a deeper meaning or catharsis in your own life.

I legit took 2 days to think of a book that worked for this prompt, and I’ve eventually decided on Radio Silence. It’s one of my absolute favourite books and I really need to reread it again.

Yellow (Sunshine) – A book that fills you with so much joy it could brighten even your darkest day.

Since Charlotte already mentioned Me, My Dad and the End of the Rainbow (which is one of the loveliest MG contemporaries ever!!), I’m going to go for Heartbreak Boys by Simon James Green. No one makes me laugh like Simon does!

Green (Nature) – A book that is set out of this world — a reality different to our own.

The Long Way to a Small Angry Planet definitely fits the bill for this! It’s such a cosy sci-fi story, with an amazing found family and really cool worldbuilding.

Blue (Peace) – A book where one of the characters finds peace with a difficult truth.

Ed in Bookishly Ever After has to make peace with several difficult truths, most of which involve his parents. I hated the way his dad treats him.

Purple (Spirit) – A book that deals with LGBT+ themes and religion.

The only thing I can think of for this is the Miseducation of Cameron Post. I didn’t love the writing style, but it’s such a powerful book and it made me cry so much. Conversion camps are evil and should be outlawed everywhere.

Thank you so much for reading! Have you read any of the books I’ve mentioned? Which books would you have chosen for these prompts? I’d love to hear in the comments!
