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?!
I thought I’d share some LGBT recs today
Simon vs the Homo Sapien Agenda by Becky Albertalli
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.
Girl Meets Boy by Ali Smith
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.
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.
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.
What’s your favourite LGBT+ book?
Leave me a recommendation!
