Today is the second day of #Pridelibrary19 and I’m still extremely excited about it. To start things off simple, I will be keeping to todays prompt – pink books – and I will be recommending some amazing pink books to you! There is no shortage of pink books, but it seems like pink LGBTQ+ books are a bit harder to find, at least in my bookcase. So while I featured only three books on Instagram today (or will feature, depending on what time I wake up and post on instagram, don’t worry, you’ll get to see the picture already), this post will contain more recommendations!
So obviously, my first recommendations are going to be the ones I’m going to share on my instagram.
Solitaire by Alice Oseman
I love Alice Oseman’s books. I actually finished I Was Born For This yesterday and it was just as good as Solitaire. While I Was Born For This features a trans MC, the LGBTQ+ content in Solitaire is not with the MCs. In Solitaire, the MCs brother is in an m/m relationship (which is featured in Heartstopper which is amazing and everyone should buy it). It does feature so many tough subjects and Oseman’s writing is so real, please just read it.
Queens of Geeks by Jen Wilde
This one is a bit more fun! It involves conventions and obviously geeks (which we all are you cannot tell me otherwise). It’s about fandoms and friendship and being yourself. It’s such a fun story and you’ll want to go ‘aww’ so many times. While it looks and sounds like a superficial story, it’s really not. It taught me a lot about myself and I really think it could help a lot more people.
Girls of Paper and Fire by Natasha Ngan
I have to admit, I haven’t started this. I feel so stupid, I have two copies (!) and still haven’t started. But! It’s supposed to be incredibly good! I know I haven’t included it on my TBR, but if I manage to read those 5 books, this is the one I’m starting right after. Or you know.. maybe I won’t follow my TBR and start this one tomorrow. Anyway, it seems to be amazingly written and the story should be intriguing!
We Are Okay by Nina LaCour
I love this book! I’ll be talking about it on Hâf’s blog today actually (I’m not sure when it’s online, but make sure to read her TBR post to see what she’ll be reading this month!). This book really made an impact on me and I will never forget it. There’s actually another Nina LaCour book I really love, which is also pink! It’s called Everything Leads To You and it’s incredibly cute ugh.
That’s it for today! I haven’t discussed all pink books so if anyone else wanted to discuss them too, we wouldn’t have a lot of doubles. But that doesn’t stop me from asking if you have any pink LGBTQ+ books you really love 🙂 What pink books would you recommend me?
Until next time,
