Green is my current favourite colour for book covers, I mean look at these! With green I feel a vibe of characters saying fuck it and being themselves.
The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzie Lee
Full review: 4/5 stars
Bisexual male main character who starts out a 1700s rich douche who gambles, drinks and sleeps around too much until he’s sent of a Grand Tour of Europe with his sister and best friend and continues to get himself in trouble, but also fun dangerous mystery type of trouble.
Heartstopper by Alice Oseman
Review is coming as I just finished it, but it was a 5/5 star read! It’s a cute graphic novel with M/M romance, with the gay characters from Solitaire by Alice Oseman.
The Love & Lies of Rukhsana Ali by Sabina Khan
Muslim lesbian teenage girl as main character dealing with family not accepting her, sending her to Bangladesh into an arranged marriage.
The Past and Other Things That Should Stay Buried by Shaun David Hutchinson
Amazing gay author writing contemporary YA with gay characters. This one has a dead best friend coming back to life?? Intriguing.
Rubyfruit Jungle by Rita Mae Brown
A classic lesbian novel. That’s what I know of it, honestly. This cover is lovely as well.
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?? Will pick this up soon and come back to you with how that works.
Orlando by Virginia Woolf
A classic that I need to read. Orlando changes gender midway in the book, so I don’t yet know what category that makes this book, but that might be the point.
Wilder Girls by Rory Power
Queer girls at an all-girl boarding school. Sounds promising, especially as it’s marked as horror with some kind of deadly infection spreading.
