Orange for … kickass characters and special relationships of all kinds, platonic and romantic? I haven’t read too many orange lgbtq books, but I’ll go with that guess.
What If It’s Us by Becky Albertalli and Adam Silvera
This cover was just more orange, haha. I dnf’ed this book because while it had a cute gay romance and gay main character, it was just so slow and the plot about nothing – which I found wasn’t for me in this case because I couldn’t connect that well with the characters. Would recommend giving it a try though!
I Was Born for This by Alice Oseman
Bisexual, gay and trans male characters
The ultimate book about fandom and finding yourself, about identity and friendship. It just did everything so great and still lingers in my mind months later.
Naturally Tan by Tan France
Queer Eye’s Tan France’s memoir. It has to be gay af by definition and I’ve seen lots of people liking it.
Not Your Sidekick by C. B. Lee
From my research there’s supposed to be a trans character and queer girls. And lots of characters with superpowers, where the protagonist doesn’t have any of them, but still gets involved in danger somehow. Seems fun.
The Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon
Epic fantasy novel that I’ve seen recommended and hyped up so much, but also looks so cool. With F/F romance.
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.
