Queer Books for Pride

For the month of June I posted a queer book a day to my Twitter feed under #queerbooksforpride. Here are all of them in one place. Some of these center queer relationships, others have queer characters as a natural part of the world / plot. All are fantastic.

One thought on “Queer Books for Pride”

  1. TJ Klune is up soon in my queue. Thanks for all the other suggestions.

    My favorite book that also happens to be queer is A Little Life by Hanya Yanagihara. It is very emotionally turbulent but still a fantastic read. I even wonder if I prefer the audiobook over reading because I love the voices… but regardless of how one consumes it, I strongly recommend the book.
