Hello lovely readers!
It’s been a while since I posted a #SixForSunday post – today I’ve been at work recommending and selling books to some lovely people. Now I’m home and chilling, which gives me the perfect time to write my post! This time, it’s rainbow books! To celebrate Pride month this June, here are 6 LGBT+ titles that I really love.
- I Was Born For This by Alice Oseman
This book is truly excellent, and has wonderful representation too. A trans main character whose story isn’t focused on his transition, plus some bisexual characters too who aren’t portrayed as a stereotype. I completely enjoyed this book, and it’s become a top LGBT+ recommend.
- Noah Can’t Even by Simon James Green
This book is such a wonderful and funny read. Sometimes a lot of LGBT+ teen books deal with sad and depressing storylines, so it’s really nice to have a lighthearted coming out story full of lots of giggles!
- Simon VS The Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli
Despite her most recent book being problematic, Becky wrote a fantastic book with Simon VS! It’s a wonderful coming-of-age story about figuring out who you are, and has a lovely relationship too!
- Carry On by Rainbow Rowell
Carry On is such a great book! With a wonderful enemies to lovers relationship, it’s certainly one of my favourite LGBT+ reads. It’s like a wonderful Hogwarts-esque read, with magic and romance!
- The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice & Virtue by Mackenzie Lee
There’s a lot of stuff tackled in this book, and I love it for that reason. It’s such a well written novel with tons of shy love, anxiety, and cute boys being too stupid to realise they like each other!
- They Both Die At The End by Adam Silvera
This is a tear jerker! TBDATE is a really clever book, and made me cry when I read it. It also features a character who is confident with his sexuality and one who is coming to terms with his identity.
So those are my rainbow books! I know this post is incredibly late this evening but hey! At least you can add some wonderful LGBT+ reads to your list!
