Alright, we have another LGBTQIA+ post to celebrate pride month. Honestly, we are always here for any excuse to promote queer novels. These books are ones we are *hoping* to get to this summer and the selection is looking extra fantastic this year! We are feeling very privileged to be getting all these diverse reads coming out!
Tell Me How You Really Feel by Aminah Mae Safi
Currently reading the e-arc of this one, so I’ll get back to you on my thoughts but look at that cover?!!? At that sexual tension between two females on a YA cover, yes please!
Hotdog Girl by Jennifer Duncan
This one looks adorable, I don’t even know why I want to read this one so much but I just do. I hope it’s as cute as it makes itself out to be.
The Weight of the Stars by K. Ancrum
I really enjoyed Wicker King and I really don’t know much about this book other than we get a beautiful, black, queer woman as our protagonist. I’m sold.
Summer of Salt by Katrina Leno
Currenly reading Must Not Miss and enjoying it. I am probably going to read this one for a readathon coming up near the end of the month – it looks sweet, and different and oh so queen and I’m all about that life. I have a feeling Katrina Leno is going to become an author to watch for me.
Wilder Girls by Rory Power
Best cover this year hands down. Flipping amazing. I’m a horror nut, so pretty much anything horror in YA hits my radar and this one looks unreal. Feminist and queer and a take on Lord of the Flies, why don’t I have an arc of this one?!!? One of my most anticipated this year for sure.
Let’s Talk about Love by Claire Kann
I’ve been meaning to read this book for awhile now since it has an asexual main character
The Love and Lies of Rukhsana Ali by Sabina Khan
I had a chance to meet this author a couple weeks ago and hearing her talking about why she wrote this book just made me want to read it even more.
The Lady’s guide to Petticoats and Piracy by Mackenzi Lee
Felicity was my favourite character from The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue and I can’t wait to read her own story. Plus her being ace is just the cherry on top for me.
Red, White and Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston
So excited about this one, people keep raving about it and I absolutely can’t wait to dig into this one. I think it’s probably perfect for a summer read.
We Set the Dark on Fire by Tehlor Kay Mejia
So happy this is one of our group reads this month and I do get to finally read it. I’ve heard nothing but amazing things about the F/F relationship.
Did you read any of these? Do you have any of these on your TBR?
