Hello lovelies! How are you? I’ve been reading so many amazing Pride themed posts and recommendations this week and my TBR is growing. So I thought I’d share some of the queer books on my radar at the moment, some shiny new releases and a few older ones I should’ve probably read by now…
Laura Dean Keeps Breaking Up with Me by Mariko Tamakia
I haven’t been reading a lot of graphic novels lately and I want to change that. This f/f story about a toxic, on and off relationship sounds so up my street and I’m in love with the black, white and pink color palette. It’s gorgeous.
Her Royal Highness by Rachel Hawkins
This rom-com about a girl falling in love with a Scottish princess at her luxurious boarding school sounds so cute! It’s been one of my most anticipated releases this spring and I’m really hoping to get to it soon.
The Brightsiders by Jen Wilde
I really enjoyed Queens of Geek and I think Jen Wilde’s second book sounds even more interesting. I mean a female bisexual rockstar as the main character? Yes, please! Also, that cover is bi AF.
Girls of Paper and Fire by Natasha Ngan
I know, I should’ve read this one by now. I don’t know how it’s possible that I still don’t own a copy. It’s everything I love, a diverse fantasy with cool worldbuilding and an f/f relationship. This one’s definitley high priority.
We Set the Dark on Fire by Tehlor Kay Mejia
Queer Latnix girls at the heart of a revolution? I think I’m in love with this premise! And that cover is fire.
Birthday by Meredith Russo
I’ve been looking for an Own Voices book with a trans main character to read and this one sounds perfect. It follows two friends who were born on the same day, on that day, through several years. I love this kind of narrative, so I’m excited!
The Lost Coast by Amy Rose Capetta
Does it count as being on my wishlist if I already bought it? I just couldn’t resist this any longer. I mean, there’s queer witches and redwood trees. That’s my whole aesthetic.
These Witches Don’t Burn by Isabel Sterling
Can we take a moment to appreciate the universe for giving us two queer witch books in one month? Thank you, universe. This one’s set in Salem, has elemental magic and maybe a f/f/f triangle? (Yup, I already bought this one too.)
Have you read any of these? Are there any I should get to sooner?
