15 Queer Books You Should Add To Your TBR

Hello everyone! It is Pride month and everyone’s reading queer books and taking part in various queer readathons so I present to you some on my favoruite for you all to add them to your TBRs right now! I hope you’ll enjoy them all!

Just a reminder before I begin to include queer books in your TBR all year round and not only in June!

Felix Ever After follows a black, queer, transgender boy as he deals with complicated family relationships, transphobia and his need for revenge and falling in love for the first time.

Cinderella is Dead is a powerful, feminist Cinderella retelling that turns the fairytale on it’s head and makes you question the very essence of it.

The Falling in Love Montage follows Ruby and Sariose as they recreate some cliché montages from Ruby’s favourite movies and fall in love along the way.

Honey Girl goes to the very root of loneliness and insecurities and brings out feelings you would rather keep buried while also giving you some love and romance to make you smile and let you feel that things do get better if you keep trying.

Hani and Ishu end up fake dating in an attempt for Hani to prove her bisexuality to her friends. In the book, we follow as these polar opposite girls fall in love and be the perfect counter that the other needs and are there for each other!

Perfect on Paper follows Darcy who runs a love advise column but is herself quite helpless at love herself as she faces the mistakes she has made, falls in love and decides to take a chance on it and have a love story of her own.

Two young goddesses go on a quest as they attempt to fix a world torn between Night and Day – The Never Tilting world is a post apoclyptic fantasy book inspired by Mesopotamian mythology.

We Set The Dark on Fire is a fantasy which follows a revolution and a girl stuck in the middle of it, making hard choices and trying to figure out what is the right thing to do, maybe even falling in love along the way.

Meet Cute Diary follows a triracial trans boy on his journey to find love and need to believe in happy endings for boys like him. He is messy and chaotic like most teens and I loved how the book explores it.

This robot fantasy follows Ayla, a human servant and Crier, the Automae princess. There is political intrigue and a rebellion and these two are at the heart of it, seemingly on opposite sides and yet, they fall in love somehow.

Small Town Hearts is a story about changing friendships and fining love. It follows Babe through he summer after high school ends as she navigates the changed relationship between her and her friends and falls in love with a summer boy.

Darius is a queer Persian-American teen suffering from clinical depression who is visiting Iran for the first time. This story portrays the intricacies of different relationships, the importance of communication and accepting oneself.

This is a cute story following a black girl who takes part in a beauty pageant and falls in love with one of her competitors. I loved the friendships and the relationship between the MC and her grandparents!

Let’s Talk About love follows Alice, a black biromantic asexual girl as she falls in love. I loved how the book separated romance and sex, because they are very different and gave us a wholesome love story I absolutely adored.

These are some queer books I adore! Have you read any of them? What did you think? Do you have any queer books you think I should add to my TBR? Let me know in the comments below!

  3. It’s fortunate that I read both English and Dutch, because only The bot die at the end, Darius the great is not okay and The falling in love montage are translated. I really disliked Cinderella is dead and DNF’ed Crier’s War, but from the others several are on my TBR and I’ve read others.
