Ten LGBTQIA+ OwnVoices Books I Want to Read

A weekly meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s topic is…ย Books I Decided to DNF

So as you can see… I’m not following this weeks theme. It’s Pride Month y’all!! Which means it’s the perfect chance to talk about queer books by queer authors.

I was first going to do a post about my favorite LGBTQIA+ books, but that would mostly be filled with very popular books that we’ve all seen at least a hundred times. This is the chance to talk about lesser known books, and boost them up! ๐Ÿ™‚

1. Let’s Talk About Love by Claire Kann
2. The Love Song of Sawyer Bell (Tour Dates #1) by Avon Gale

3. Caroline’s Heart by Austin Chant
4. Adaptation (Adaptation #1) by Malinda Lo

5. Girl Made of Stars by Ashley Herring Blake
6. A Tiny Piece of Something Greater by Jude Sierra

7. Anger Is a Gift by Mark Oshiro
8. Not Your Sidekick (Sidekick Squad #1) by C.B. Lee

9. Not Otherwise Specified by Hannah Moskowitz
10. The Summer of Jordi Perez (And the Best Burger in Los Angeles) by Amy Spalding

Have you all read any of these books? Do you recommend one specifically? ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. SO excited to see you bending the theme this week to celebrate pride. I am so intrigued by a lot of these titles and have only heard of a couple (and read only one, sigh) so thanks for the bright recommendations! I need to get my hands on all of these but especially Let’s Talk About Love–there’s something about it that is oh-so-appealing to me and I’ve been itching to read it. Great list!


    1. Thank you! Let’s Talk About Love and Anger is a Gift are the ones on the top of my list! ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š


  2. I haven’t read any of these books, but I am super intrigued by them all. Thanks for putting them in my mind!
