Gold and beige is included with yellow right? With the yellow books we got a lot of very different and particular subjects that the plot centers around – sports, pirates, Greece and Montana.
The Miseducation of Cameron Post by Emily M. Danforth
4/5 stars. Lesbian main character, is sent to christian conversion therapy camp so trigger warning for that.
It’s a sad story, but also about being brave and sticking up for others. It’s set in Montana, so also about being queer in a small place and dealing with family that isn’t accepting. But it’s also about queer people bonding together and becoming friends. I would recommend the movie by the same name, even though it was like a shortened version with not as much depth. It does have Chloe Grace Moretz who has been my biggest celeb crush since I saw her in kickass when I was like eleven years old.
The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller
3/5 stars. Gay main characters and romance between Achilles and bff Patroclus. Greek heroes and greek ancient mythology. A tragic love story with younger boys being friends and then growing up and it developing into love, but then destiny and expectations messes with things.
Running With Lions by Julian Winters
Bisexual and gay male main characters and on the team.
A sport YA contemporary novel that seems similar to The foxhole court by Nora Sakavic, which I loved. I really am all in for the friendgroup bonding and becoming like family type of books and drama. I really need to read this soon.
Rubyfruit Jungle by Rita Mae Brown
It’s a classic lesbian coming-of-age novel. That’s what I know about it, honestly.
Shell Game by Benny Lawrence
It’s set in a remote fishing village!!! And the main character girl is kidnapped by a pirate queen! Why haven’t I been paying more attention to this book. Lesbian romance ensues.
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.
I hope you’ll enjoy Running With Lions!
