Red Queer Books #PrideLibrary19 πŸŒˆ

The Pride Library 2019 Challenge is hosted by Library Looter, Anniek’s Library and Michelle Likes Things. Join in on it anytime or link your post in the comments so I see it! Also all reviews I’ve written will be linked.

Red comes with drama and mystery! And also identity crises, apparently?

The Morning Star by M. Chandler


3/5 stars. A spy series with M/M romance between an art thief and a FBI agent, it’s entertaining, while not realistic, with enemies to lovers kind of vibe.

Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green


Gay main characters and musicals is what I remember from this book. I liked this book when I read it, but it’s honestly been a while.

Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo


5/5 stars, it’s such great heist fantasy with awesome friend-group. Bisexual male characters (maybe one of them was gay?).

Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli

Full review: 5/5 stars

Cute YA coming of age story with gay main character and him coming out and starting to date.

Girl Mans Up by M-E Girard

Full review: 3/5 stars

Queer girl main character. YA contemporary novel about struggling with gender identity, fitting in with friends and dealing with her family negative attitude about her not being ‘girly’ enough


Demon Road by Derek Landy


YA fantasy book with a queer girl main characters, I think. I’m not sure if it’s explicitly said before the sequel. She’s on the run from demons, so that’s why it’s on my TBR, haha. I love that we’ve come to a point where I constantly find books that have queer characters by accident, instead of having to go on a hunt for queer books.

Let me know if you’ve read any of these books and if you liked them! Please link your post if you’re participating so I see it and recommend any LGBTQ books you’ve loved.

      It felt so different and didn’t shy away from how tough the dilemma can be of the main character wanting to fit in (especially with friends) and survive being a teenager, but also be themselves.

        That sounds so good! I think it’s on my audiobook service, so I’ll try to get to it this month!

      Haha same here. It’s interesting, if only the character voice more childish and feels like younger YA than expected.
