Juliet Takes a Breath
Simon vs homosapiens agenda
I read this short story called “fawn” last year. It really gave me insight into some of the issues young LGBT people have to deal with. The imagery was also really vivid and beautiful. I keep recommending it to people because it sticks in my head so much.
Keeping You A Secret is the first book that comes to my mind.

Any book by TJ Klune! He’s fantastic and underrated. His books are usually laugh-out-loud funny with great, memorable characters!
Aristotle and Dante discover the secrets of the universe
The Danish girl
Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard! ?
Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda ??️?
There’s also a sequel.
Yep, Leah on the Offbeat. Loved that one too.
The Swimming Pool Library
I wouldn’t classify it as an LGBT book because it is so much more than that, but Proust’s Remembrance of Things Past has several homosexual characters and a discussion of the psychology. Proust himself was homosexual, but in the main story line he has transformed his experience into a heterosexual one, which raises the question of how real it is. Somehow all the pages devoted to Albertine seem contrived and unreal.
Wolfsong and Ravensong by TJ Klune.
Anything by gail Carriger
Tell the Wolves I’m Home
Havemercy by Jaide Jones.
I didn’t get it specifically because it was lgbt but it was amazing.
Call Me By Your Name by Andre Aciman and The Heart’s Invisible Furies by John Boyne
I fell in love with A Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue this past year. It was refreshing to have a character who was a narcissistic, pig-headed, arrogant rich brat who happened to be gay. Having that as a facet of his character was lovely and real. And it made me really love the book.
Simon vs. the homosapian agenda
UP! (Because I just can’t get enough…)
Sita by Kate Millett
