We’re currently in the middle of pride month where we celebrate all that are in the gay community. All of these books have great representation so if you’re looking for a pride read this month then here are some suggestions.
Becky Albertalli’s books – I feel like everyone has probably read these by now but if not then… why not?
Adam Silvera’s books – My personal favourite is History is All You Left Me but if you like contemporary with a bit of sci-fi, then More Happy Than Not and We Both Die at the End are the ones for you.
Cassandra Clare’s books – Honestly, urban fantasy at it’s best for me and Clare has never been afraid of featuring a very diverse cast of characters.
The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid – One of my absolute favourites. Old time Hollywood, great bi rep and just makes you feel all the emotions.
Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Saenz – A great pool side, coming of age read.
The Art of Being Normal by Lisa Williams – Another YA contemporary. This one following a girl who was born in a boys body.
The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller – I haven’t read many fantasy with good LGBT rep but this is a pretty good one. Based on greek mythology we follow the lives and romance of two rather famous names.
