June 20th: Favorite LGBTQ+ Books That Don’t Feature Cis M/M Relationships
I really like this topic because it’s such a great way to talk about other queer relationships besides Cis M/M ones. I’ll put the description below of what Sam said about this topic:
“This may seem oddly specific, but in honor of Pride being this month, I wanted to have a topic to celebrate LGBTQ+ books. But, the book community tends to, when given the chance, lift up cis m/m pairings the most. And while those books are still important and valued (we’ve even had topics covering m/m relationships earlier this year, which featured many cis m/m pairings), I wanted to shine the spotlight on some of those lesser known, recognized, and celebrated books”
I have to make a note that I’ve only completed reading the first two mentioned and the others are current reads, so I don’t know if all of these are endgame (which I hope they all are), but they are still relationships that I am enjoying reading about. 🙂
How to Make a Wish by Ashley Herring Blake
I know I’ve talked about this a lot but I don’t care because I adore this book. The MC is bisexual and the love interest is a biracial (black/white) lesbian.
Labyrinth Lost by Zoraida Cordova
The MC, Alex is a Bi Latina and her love interest Rishi is a queer Guyanese girl. I hope to see more interactions between them in the sequel because I adore them being together!
Girl Made of Stars by Ashley Herring Blake
The MC is bisexual and her love interest is genderqueer + Korean. Yes I just had to include Ashley Herring Blake again because she is becoming a favorite author of mine.
Out of the Blue
I’m not at all far into this but I know it’s has a major f/f relationship between the MC who is Sri Lankan-Scottish and the love interest has cystic fibrosis.
If I Was Your Girl
This is a M/F relationship with the main character being a trans girl.
