LGBTQ+ Pride Month Reading List!


Happy Pride Month everyone! I wanted to celebrate with a list of some awesome books featuring LGBTQ protagonists. I tried to put mostly ownvoices authors at the forefront of this list, but not all of them are. I love that we're getting so many lovely, diverse books, so I wanted to share some of my personal favorites with all of you. Let me know in the comments which ones you love!

The Summer of Jordi Perez
This is the perfect book, both for Pride Month and the start of summer. Jordi will get you in the summer spirit with this super cute romance. 

Red, White, and Royal Blue
I'm so excited to see NA starting to make a comeback! Living up to the hype, this is the perfect love story for royal lovers and those fascinated by what happens at the White House.

10 Things I Can See From Here
Maeve may be full of anxiety, but when she falls for a fearless girl, her world starts to change in ways she never expected. It's a wonderful romance and mental health book. 

Please Send Help
While I haven't read this one yet, this book by two You Tubers about best friends starting college apart from each other promises romance for each as they adjust to their new realities. I love seeing more college YA. 

Going Off Script
(And Queen Of Geeks)
I looooove this book. It's my favorite romance of the beginning of the summer. It delves into the world of TV production and details a romance between a writer's room intern and a famous You Tuber guest starring on a Twilight like show. 
(While I haven't read Queen of Geeks, I'm getting it today, it has been recommended as another awesome Jen Wilde book!)

Bloom
I haven't gotten around to reading Bloom, but it looks super cute, and it's a graphic novel which I'd love to read more of.

They Both Die At The End
This list wouldn't be complete without at least 1 Adam Silvera book. While you should check them all out (including What If It's Us, his collab with Becky Albertalli), this is my favorite book of his so. far. 

We Are Okay
In this super short, contemplative piece, Marin explores her past with her best friend during winter break from college. While not the most upbeat read, it is aa thought provoking piece that could be a good change of pace. 

Tash Hearts Tolstoy
This book features an ace main character which I've found to be really rare in YA. Beyond that, this is a delightful book that focuses on friendships, being a creator, and making You Tube episodes based on Tolstoy's classics. 

Hot Dog Girl
Another perfect summer read brings you to a small amusement park and features on the girl who plays the hot dog at the park. 

Wild and Crooked
If your looking for a story with tons of LGBTQ characters in it without a strong central romance, this is your book. With a stunning, strong set of narrators and a twisty mystery, this one is not to be missed. Also, come back Friday to see my full review of the book!

Ship It
This list would not be complete without one of my favorite fan fiction/Con related books that pulls the curtain back on the realities of televisions from the point of view of a fan.
