This week’s topic is Favourite LGBTQ+ Reads. These are books that feature LGBTQ+ characters or are by LGBTQ+ authors. I love LGBTQ+ books and I do read a lot of short stories from an M/M group, however, I came to the conclusion that I don’t read many full-length novels and I do want to change that. I read a lot of gay romance but not a lot of lesbian, transgender or other queer types of fiction, so if anyone has any suggestions then please comment down below. So out of the novels I have read, I picked out my favourite books…
5. Zero at the Bone by Jane Seville (X)
I love assassin books (its a bit of a weird obsession) and since I saw this book I wanted to read it. I was so glad I picked it up, the relationship is cute and although it’s a pretty dense read I think if you like more adult reads then this is great.
4. Carry On by Rainbow Rowell (X)
How could I not! This was the book that encouraged me to read more LGBTQ+ books and I am so grateful because I love LGBTQ+ books now! The relationship between Baz and Simon is brilliant and I like the way they are around each other.
3. One Man Guy by Michael Barkarvia (X)
A random pick up that I adored I sped through this book, it was interesting and I really enjoyed all the relationships in this book. I also enjoyed learning a little more about the Armenian culture which I didn’t really know anything. The only feeling I had was that the characters were written a little older that they were supposed to be.
2. Everything Leads to You by Nina LaCour (X)
OMG I loved this book, this was the first lesbian romance I read and I really liked how the main characters were more than their sexuality. It was cute and fluffy. The perfect summer read.
- Simon vs the Homo sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli (X)
This is my one favourite books of all time. The characters are funny adorable and it’s a wonderful coming of age/coming out story. 10/10 do reccomend.
