I read 15 LGBTQ+ books in 2016, and out of those I had 10 definite favourites. It was exciting to see so many new releases featuring queer characters last year, with even more releasing this year. Most of my reading fell within the L, G, and B, so this year I'd like to branch out and try to cover more of the spectrum. If you have any recommendations, particularly with ace, trans, pan, or intersex characters, I'd love to hear them! Feel free to leave a comment or tweet me.
Here are my 10 favourite LGBTQ+ books of 2016, in no particular order:
- The Abyss Surrounds Us by Emily Skrutskie
- Out of Frame and Overexposed by Megan Erickson
- If I Was Your Girl by Meredith Russo
- As I Descended by Robin Talley
- You Know Me Well by Nina LaCour and David Levithan
- Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Saenz
- Georgia Peaches and Other Forbidden Fruit by Jaye Robin Brown
- Out on Good Behavior by Dahlia Adler
- Midnighter by Steve Orlando
