So I meant to have more Pride Month posts up by now, then I took an unintentional hiatus.
But! I have been reading a lot of LGBTQ books. And I have even more to recommend. I google a lot of posts like this one in June, to add to my tbr
like that’s really needed, so I wanted to write my own.
And it’s specifically fantasy, because that’s really all I read.
Outrun the Wind
Atalanta retelling with a f\f romance
I’m reading this one right now, and as a big fan of the original story, I’m liking it so far. It’s also pretty short, compared to most fantasy books, if you’re looking for an easy read.
The Prince and the Dressmaker
I’m already breaking my only-fantasy rule, because while there’s no magic, it is an alternate reality France (I think).
This is a really cute graphic novel that’s longer than average, but worth it. One of the only ones I’ve found with a gender-fluid mc too.
The Brilliant Death
Gender-fluid love interest & pansexual mc
Admittedly, I’ve been reading this one for a few months, and it’s not my favorite. I’m not connecting with the world, and it makes it hard to read. BUT! I know a lot of people who love this book and don’t mind the Italy-inspired world or magic system.
Once & Future
Gender-fluid rep, pansexual mc, gay side character
I haven’t read this one yet, but I’m planning to this month. This is a fantasy\sci-fi retelling of King Arthur, with a gender-swap. It’sco-written by the same author as The Brilliant Death, along with her partner.
I know little to nothing about this book, but it’s been on my shelf for a while. It’s fantasy, the author is apparently pretty popular, and it has a f\f romance.
I have more to list, but I don’t want to put a million in one post. I’ll probably have the next post up in a few days, because what even is a posting schedule??
Have you read any of these books? What are some of your recommendations?
