Hi guys! It’s been a while, but I’m back with this months queer books. July is a little bit light, but that doesn’t mean the books aren’t amazing. Hopefully August will be full of queer books again and we can just use this month to read backlist queer books 🙂
Wilder Girls by Rory Power
I’ve been waiting for this book for so so long. The fact that it’s coming out on my birthday is just a little bit more amazing. But, this book sounds awesome and seems to be generally likes (I know of one person that doesn’t, sorry 😦 ) .The world building in this book should be good and the rep equally amazing. Can’t wait to read it!
The Merciful Crow by Margaret Owen
Okay truth be told, I only found three queer books for July so I went down the New Releases list, opening books and trying to find some sort of queer rep :’) I had no idea The Merciful Crow had queer rep! Tavin is bisexual, Jasimir is gay, and there’s a (small) nonbinary character too. So yay for queers!
Heartstopper vol. 2 by Alice Oseman
My favourite boys are back! Even though I’ve already read everything that’s being published in this volume on tapas, I’m still excited. I can’t get enough of this amazing story. I will recommend these graphic novels until the end of days and there is no one left that hasn’t read it.
Shatter the Sky by Rebecca Kim Wells
Hello, yes, a queer dragon trainer. Saving her girlfriend from death. An Empire and a rebellion! I mean, the book had me at dragons, but the rest isn’t too bad either. I would just like to show you guys this amazing thing Elise said on Goodreads:
“being gay is about stealing a dragon to save your girlfriend from a corrupt empire”
There. If you’re not convinced yet, I don’t know what to do.
Four books should keep your TBRs a bit contained. Meaning there is no reason not to add these to your TBR, or just buy them already 🙂 Hopefully next month there will be a bit more queer books. Definitely looking forward to these, and next months (and next months and the month after that). Do you think you’ll read any of these? Let me know in the comments!
