June is Pride month and we want to talk about the LGBT books we have on our wishlists. There are a lot of books both of us want on our shelves and to read, so this will only be a glimpse of the books we want. Keep on reading for our Wishlist Wednesday: Pride Edition!
You Should See Me in a Crown – Leah Johnson First of all, I love this cover! The person smiling at me on the cover makes it hard not to smile back. I love how the colors pop and the title really stands out. I’m a big contemporary fan and You Should See Me in a Crown sounds like it will have everything I love in this genre! It really sounds like a perfect summer read.
Felix Ever After – Kacen Callender Having the last name Love has to be hard when you’ve never fallen in love. Again, I love the cover of this book. There’s definitely a change in covers these days, more illustrated and I love it! The synopsis says Felix Ever After is “an honest and layered story about identity, falling in love, and recognizing the love you deserve.” I need this in my life!
Late to the Party – Kelly Quindlen One of my favorite kind of contemporary stories is when a character experiences new things and starts learning more about themselves. Late to the Party sounds like one of those books that seems to be pretty realistic.
Jack of Hearts (and Other Parts) – L.C. Rosen I’ve seen this book around and have been curious from the start! I recently read Camp and really enjoyed this story! L.C. Rosen has a way with words and now I really want to read Jack of Hearts (and Other Parts). I have a feeling I’m going to love it!
The Foxhole Court – Nora Sakavic This book is definitely different than the previous four books that have been mentioned, haha. The Foxhole Court is a book I keep seeing everywhere (it’s been popping up again) and it’s caught my attention. By the sounds of it, this book is intense, but I have a feeling I won’t be able to get enough.
Dreadnought – April Daniels This book has been on my wishlist for quite a while now! I’ve seen quite some positive reviews. There aren’t that many SFF books with trans main characters to my knowledge so I would like to read the ones I do know.
Girls of Paper and Fire – Natasha Ngan This book has gotten a lot of raving reviews! We both have the eARC for the second book in the series but obviously can’t read that before reading Girls of Paper and Fire. The cover is gorgeous and I can’t wait to get my hands on it.
Clap When You Land – Elizabeth Acevedo I listened to The Poet X and was pleasantly surprised. This newest book by Elizabeth Acevedo sounds even better. I love this cover and I’m very intrigued by the whole secret family storyline!
The Prince and the Dressmaker – Jen Wang This graphic novel looks so cute and I’ve heard nothing but good things about it. I love reading graphic novel and all the LGTBQI+ ones I’ve read so far have been very good and instant favorites. Hopefully this one will be just as good!
Witchmark – C.L. Polk I came across this one earlier this week and immediately added it to my wishlist. The synopsis sounds wonderful and I think this could me a very cool fantasy story. From what I can gather, the reviews are okay, a lot of 3 and 4 stars but that just means I shouldn’t go in with very high expectations and I might be surprised!
These are just some of the books on our wishlists! Also, of course we read these books all year round and not only during Pride month, but we just wanted to give them a bit of a spotlight! What LGBT books do you love and think we need to read? Let us know in the comments!
