1. RED
The Power by Naomi Alderman 

The+Power
A recently read novel you can read my review here. All about women who gain electrical powers in their hands that can cause pain and even death. They begin to take over the world hurting and killing any man in their wake.

2. ORANGE
Trainspotting by Irvine Welsh

I adore the film, I haven’t read the book in a while I remember the Scottish dialect being hard to read. I am off to Edinburgh in August so can’t wait to go to some of the locations that were on the film and in the book.

3. YELLOW
The Invisible Life of Euridice Gusmao by Martha Batalha
9781786072986_14_1_1
Not one of my favourite novels I have read this year but a sweet story. You can read more on my review here. 

4. GREEN
The Green Mile by Stephen King
9780752864334_1
Shamefully a film and book I have never read. I know what it is all about and even my boyfriend says he cries at the ending. A Stephen King novel that I should of read by now but it is on the TBR pile so I will get round to it soon!

5. BLUE
When Breath Becomes Air by Paul Kalanithi

A brilliant memoir about a doctor who finds out he has terminal lung cancer. A heartbreaking story of a level headed doctor telling patients bad news frequently to being told himself that he is now a patient, and his ultimate battle with cancer.

6. PURPLE
The Catcher in the Rye by J.D Salinger
9780241950432

My favourite book in the world and the only novel I have that’s purple in colour.

So I have built my Pride flag with some books on my shelf. Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Pride Month (LGBT Pride Month) is currently celebrated each year in the month of June to honor the 1969 Stonewall riots in Manhattan. The Stonewall riots were a tipping point for the Gay Liberation Movement in the United States. Thanks for reading Katie x
