I wasn’t going to make another monthly TBR for a while, because I suck at them, but then I went through the queer books I’ve been wanting to read for a while so here it is and I’m crossing my fingers that I get to go through more than 40% haha –
The Cybernetic Tea Shop by Meredith Katz
It’s 65 pages short and definitely caught my eye because of how much that title makes my eyes turn into hearts. From what I can see it has an asexual woman falling in love with a robot?? I need to know how that works.
The Love & Lies of Rukhsana Ali by Sabina Khan
Because it got a muslim lesbian teenage girl as main character dealing with family not accepting her, sending her to Bangladesh into an arranged marriage.
Running With Lions by Julian Winters
Because it seems similar to The foxhole court by Nora Sakavic and I really am a sucker for friendgroup bonding like a family and having drama. With bisexual and gay male main characters on the team.
When the Moon Was Ours by Anna-Marie McLemore
Because it’s magical realism (which I love!!!) with two bff’s turned romantic, where one is a queer girl and one a trans boy.
Karamo Brown’s Memoir
It’s Queer Eye’s Karamo Brown, so it’s gay af. But also dealing with mental health and a lot of healing, which I’m going to need to listen to on audiobook while I’m packing up memories and moving.
The Lady’s Guide to Petticoats and Piracy by Mackenzi Lee
Because I liked the first book, and this sequel is following Felicity, the nerdy aromantic-asexual sister trying to become a doctor in 1700s Europe. I don’t know where the piracy plays in, but excited to find out.
These Witches Don’t Burn by Isabel Sterling
Because it’s a new release with a queer girl main character who’s also a witch! Supernatural disasters in the city happens, dark magic is appearing, and also a cute new ballerina arrives, all throwing her off the normal state of things. I’M SO EXCITED TO READ THIS!
Let me know if you’ve read any of these and if you liked them. And if you have any other LGBTQ books to recommend!
