Happy Pride month! I compiled a list of some LGBTQ+ books I really enjoyed reading, I hope you like these books too 🙂
L – Lesbian
Her royal highness is just a cute fluffy romance that I would recommend even if you are not normally a romance reader. The love and lies of Rukhsana Ali doesn’t have that much romance and it’s pretty sad but it really explores family, culture, and how sexuality fits in.
Girls of paper and fire and Come tumbling down both have f/f relationships in harsh fantasy worlds that I seriously loved. Come tumbling down is the 5th book in the series but you only need to read the first two books to understand this one.
G – Gay
Heartstopper is the cutest thing I have ever read and yet it has depth to it not just cute moments, I cant recommend it enough! Also if your willing to read like 6 Rick Riordan books then Nico di Angelo is a really great gay character who is dating Will the demigod son of Apollo.
Call me by your name and Aristotle and Dante discover the secrets of the universe both have m/m relationships that I enjoyed reading. Aristotle and Dante is one of my favourite coming of age books and it is friends to lovers.
B – Bisexual
The seven husbands of Evelyn Hugo and The Gentleman’s guide to vice and virtue are both historical fiction books with bisexual main characters!
Autoboyography and The brightsiders are teen books with bisexual main characters. The brightsiders includes a toxic f/f relationship as well as a pansexual and genderqueer love interest, the whole group is queer it’s a cool read!
T – Transgender
Birthday is one of the only books I have read with a transgender character which is kind of sad but it was a good book, trigger warning for grief and abuse. Every heart a doorway and the whole series has such a great diverse cast with asexual and gay characters as well as a trans character Kade.
Radio silence is a really great coming of age book with bisexual, gay and demisexual representation. Mooncakes features queer and non binary characters and it is so fantastical and sweet!
I didn’t realize this because I only read the first book but Magnus chase has a relationship with a non binary character Alex so its assumed that he is bi or pan!
Happy Pride month and happy reading 🙂
