As I mentioned before, there are a lot of queer books out in October, so many that I needed two posts to show all of you the books. So here’s the second post with a whole lot of awesome books!
Mooncakes by Suzanne Walker
I’ve read an ARC of Mooncakes and it’s just amazing. I absolutely love the art and the story and there are some incredibly important themes included in the story. If you’re looking for a fantasy queer graphic novel, give this one a try!
Mooncakes is out October 15th
The Never Tilting World by Rin Chupeco
I’m am so excited for this one! Not only do I love sister rivalries (and I’m always hopeful that they reconcile), it includes their daughters aswell. It’s a queer, fantasy dream come true! And it’s Rin Chupeco, I know her worldbuilding is amazing so I can’t wait for The Never Tilting World!!
The Never Tilting World is out October 15th
Tarnished Are The Stars by Rosiee Thor
Look it’s a queer ownvoices sci-fi novel! About outlaws and infections and it’s so queer. I felt like I needed to say that multiple times. My friend Kal has interviewed Rosiee Thor where she talks about what representation is in the story and more awesome things that I think you should read for yourself 🙂
Tarnished are the Stars is out October 15th
I Hope You Get This Message by Farah Naz Rishi
I used to really only read dystopians, and always wondered what happened before the world ended. Well, this book is about the world ending in seven days (possibly).
I guess it’s a story about forgiveness and being honest, not only to yourself but also the people that mean a lot to you. It is a very emotional book, which for me makes it even better than I thought.
If that hasn’t convinced you, this is a contemporary novels with sci-fi elements (the existence of aliens), so if you’re interested in either, I would really recommend this one!
I Hope You Get This Message is out October 22nd
All The Things We Do In the Dark by Saundra Mitchell
So while this looks like a fantasy book, it’s a contemporary! When reading the synopsis, I kind of expected some kind of monster to pop up, but it doesn’t seem the case.
I feel like I should warn everyone that wnats to read it, because it does deal with a whole bunch of difficult topics. It’s really emotional. It deals with child rape, PTSD and mental health issues.
All the Things We Do in the Dark is out October 29th
Beyond the Black Door by A.M. Strickland
What I loved about the synopsis is that it rightout states that the MC is asexual and that she’s coming to terms with it. Now, I don’t know if it’s an ownvoices book, but I do know the author is queer. So more specifically about the book and the MC, the MC is demi-biromantic. So while there is a romance in the book, it’s not sexual.
I know it’s not a given yet, but the fact that the author uses terms like demi-biromantic, and knows the difference between asexual and aromantic gives me hope 🙂
Beyond the Black Door is out October 29th
And that’s about it for this month! There might be other queer books coming out this month, but I can’t add them all 🙂 Please let me know in the comments if I’ve missed one, or if you are planning to read one of these books!
