LGBT-Books

 

Hey guys, hope you’re having a great Saturday!
I *still* don’t have wifi at my uni flat. I just got back yesterday and they still haven’t sorted it. Such a nightmare. Don’t they know my life revolves around the internet?!
Anywho…
I thought I’d share some LGBT recs today

Up first:
Simon vs the Homo Sapien Agenda by Becky Albertalli

(Gay, m/m)

I LOVE THIS! It’s such an adorable story.
I read this in a few hours in one sitting – it’s addictive and adorable but has some serious themes about coming out and being blackmailed. Everyone talks about this book but seriously, it’s worth the hype.

Purchase: Amazon UK | Book Depository


Girl Meets Boy by Ali Smith
(queer)

This is a queer retelling of Ovid’s myth of Iphis – this was a required read in uni for me and I was pleasantly surprised. It really shows how fluid gender and sexuality is. I never hear anyone talk about it but it definitely needs more hype. The title doesn’t really show that it’s LGBT but it is a nice surprise in the story.

Purchase: Amazon UK | Book Depository


Lumberjanes by Noelle Stevenson
(Not sure on sexualities but features a f/f relationship)

This is such an adorable graphic novel series. It has an all girl cast and features a f/f relationship – which is SO CUTE. So nice to see LGBT aimed at a young audience.

Purchase: Amazon UK | Book Depository


The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid
(Bisexual MC, Gay/Lesbian side characters)

This isn’t a favourite book of mine, not even close, but I think the representation was great. I loved seeing LGBT characters in this era, it was interesting to read about and different from the other LGBT stories I’ve read.

Purchase: Amazon UK | Book Depository
