Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly blog meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.
This week’s theme is books from my favorite genre, but in honor of June being PRIDE MONTH here in the US, I wanted to talk about some of my favorite queer reads! If you didn’t know, I’m a queer woman (who is also married to a queer person), so you could say LGBTQ+ rep is pretty well-loved in our household. ????
rep: m/m romance between a gay man + a gay demi Romani man; demi+bi+grey-ace+trans multiracial author (Cole’s twitter bio says “Native AmeriBlAsian”)
rep: m/m romance between a bisexual biracial (Latinx/white) man + a gay man; queer author
3. Prince’s Gambit (& entire Captive Prince trilogy)
rep: m/m romance between a bisexual man + a gay man
4. Down Among the Sticks and Bones (& entire Wayward Children series)
rep: f/f romance between a pan ace woman (w/ OCD) + a plus-size queer woman; queer plus-size author w/ OCD
rep: m/f romance between a black woman + a demisexual white man; black author (I don’t know if Talia is queer or just the best ally I’ve ever met)
6. Reign of the Fallen (& sequel)
rep: f/f romance between a bi woman + a queer (lesbian?) woman; bisexual author
rep: ace aro multiracial (Japanese/Hawaiian/white) main character, multiple side characters of color (Hawaiian, Japanese, Korean, Samona, Filipino, black); queer/ace bi/multiracial author (Akemi’s father is Hawaiian but I’m uncertain otherwise!)
