Happy Pride Month! This year the pride parade is cancelled here where I live, but that doesn’t mean that we can’t celebrate pride and what it represents. I’ve listed some of my favourite books with LGBTQ representation below! Let me know what are some of your favourites?
Not Your Sidekick was a fun and thrilling YA sci-fi with lots of focus on characters which I loved. I also enjoyed the really cute and sweet f/f romance in this book!
I loved the f/f romance in Girls of Paper and Fire. This Asian-inspired fantasy reminded me of all the Chinese period drama I used to enjoy, which was a bonus for me!
I feel like I could stop talking about Red White & Royal Blue haha. It’s sooooo cute and sweet and such a fun read. Have you ever wondered what would happen if the American president’s son got together with a British prince? Well… read to find out!
Carry On must be a classic by now! Despite this book being out for ages, Simon Snow and Baz are still one of my favourite pairs!
Heartstopper is such a sweet and addictive graphic novel series, perfect for a lazy weekend! I loved the m/m pair who had such amazing chemistry.
What If It’s Us is another fun romantic YA contemporary for all those who love Becky Albertalli and Adam Silvera! I loved the irresistable m/m romance in this book as well.
I would also rank Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda up there as a classic by now haha. It was one of the first YA books I’d read that featured a m/m romance and still one of my favourites. I also enjoyed the sequel, Leah On the Offbeat, which featured a bisexual female character and a diverse cast.
Have you read any of the books above? What are some of your favourite books with LGBTQ representation?
