It’s been far too long since I’ve written a post regarding queer books. I’m definitely glad I’m back and able to tell all of you about the amazing queer books that are coming out this month! There are some truly good books and hopefully you’ll all agree and read some of these books! Le’s just start okay, the faster I start, the faster you can read these!
The Storm of Life by Amy Rose Carpetta (The Brilliant Death #2)
The Storm of Life is the sequel to The Brilliant Death and features Teodora and Cielo. It features a trans character, which is alwas a plus to be quite fair. And Amy Rose Carpetta is a good writer, so there’s no reason to no read this right? That’s what I tought 🙂
The Storm of Life is out January 7th.
Come Tumbling Down by Seanan McGuire
I’m so so so excited for this one! It’s the 5th book in the Wayward Children series and this time it’s about Jack and Jill again. If you’ve read the series you know these characters from Every Heart a Doorway and Down Among the Sticks and Bones. I can’t wait to see how their story unravels in this book!
Come Tumbling Down is out January 7th.
We Used To Be Friends by Amy Spalding
I love Amy’s books. This book is a bit different, it talks about the break up of childhood best friends. It features a f/f relationship and lots of heartbreak, maybe from that relationship or between Kat and James (the childhood best friends). I guess we’ll see.
We Used To Be Friends is out January 7th.
One of Us Is Next by Karen M. McManus (One of Us is Lying #2)
So much suspense! I won’t tell you what exactly happens, because then I would spoil what happens in the first book. But there’s more gossip and games and suspense. I can’t wait to read this, hopefully it will be as good as the first one!
One of Us Is Next is out January 7th.
Fallen Love by Alex Stargazer
This is different from what I’ve written about before. It’s a paranormal book! About angels and demons, and a m/m relationship. I have to admit, I haven’t read paranormal books in a while, and this kind of makes me thing of the House of Night series, but it might be the perfect book for you!
Fallen Love is out January 7th.
The Deep & Dark Blue by Niki Smith
I can’t write this series without adding a graphic novel. This is one about twins and revenge and politics. I’m kind of scared it won’t really translate well in a graphic novel, but don’t knock it until you try it! It does sound really interesting and it seems like there is a trans character!
The Deep & Dark Blue is out January 7th.
Scavenge the Stars by Tara Sim
More revenge! And deception! It’s a gender-swapped retelling of The Count of Monte Cristo. I have to admit that I don’t really know this story.. I know parts of it, but I’m pretty sure this is a book I’m definitely going to love either way!
Scavenge the Stars is out January 7th.
Chosen by Kiersten White (Slayer #2)
The second book in the Slayer series, Nina’s story continues. It’s again full of demons and of course cameos by Buffy and Faith and more end-of-the-world threaths. I loved Buffy the Vampire Slayer and I can’t wait to read this!
Chosen is out January 7th.
Go with the Flow by Lily Willams and Karen Schneemann
No, can it be? Another graphic novel? Well yes it is! And this is about MENSTRUATION. Of course it’s about so much more, but you know, every book that mentions a menstruation revolution must be pretty awesome.
Go with the Flow is out January 14th.
Dark and Deepest Red by Anna-Marie McLemore
I’m not a huge fan of historic novels, but this is about witches and it also takes place in 2018 later. But there are fairy tales involved!! And it features a trans boy!! I’ve pre-ordered this months ago and I can’t wait for the moment it’s finally in my hands!
Dark and Deepest Red is out January 14th.
Haskall Himself by Gary Seigel
This is a pretty unknown book, it has only 7 ratings on Goodreads so far, but risks should be taken so here goes. This book takes place in 1966 and hopefully everyone knows that queer people did not have the same chances as straight people. But Haskell fights back.
Haskall Himself is out January 19th.
Spellhacker by M.K. England
Woo magic! Well, there used to be magic, but ever since the magical plague killed thousands of people, magic is now controlled and expensive. If that doesn’t convince you, the book has a heist! And you know, the main characters are definitely going to save the world. No pressure.
Spellhacker is out January 21st.
The Circus Rose by Betsy Cornwall
This month can’t get enough of retellings can it? This time it’s Snow White and the Rose Red. Rosie and Ivorie battle religious extremists who are – ofcourse – evil. It’s about found family and protecting the ones you love. It’s also very queer 🙂
The Circus Rose is out January 21st.
It seems like a pretty good moth. There are some books coming out that I’ve been waiting for a while and I’m really curious to see if they live up to the hype I’ve built up in my mind. I hopeyou hav found a book you find interesting, because I think we all need more queer stories in our life.
I’ll be back every month with more queer books, but if you know of a book I haven’t featured here, let me know!
