5 LGBT+ books on my TBR that I really want to read.

Hey :))) I’m a bit late today. I’ve been procrastinating. Clearly my plans for a productive summer are going well.

Today I am going to be talking about 5 lgbt+ books that I currently have on my TBR. Hopefully this time next year I’ll be recommending these books instead of just telling myself I’ll to get them eventually.


I’ve kept this list down to just the books I own in some format or other because if not then this list would be incredibly long and nobody has time for that.

The Falling In Love Montage by Ciara Smythe follows a girl called Saoirse whose mother has early onset dementia and so because of this she doesn’t believe in love or happy endings but then she meets Ruby and everything changes. This is a recent release that I pre-ordered on my kindle and I’m really looking forward to it but I can’t tell if it’s going to be incredibly adorable or sad. Maybe a mix of the both?

I wasn’t a huge fan of Solitaire but I’ve decided to try again with Alice Oseman and so when I saw the E-book of I Was Born For This on sale I had to pick it up. The only problem I have right now is that I don’t remember what it’s about. It’s either about a podcast or a band but I’m not sure. I really wanna like Oseman’s books, I follow her on Tumblr and she seems really nice so I have my fingers crossed.


Beyond The Black Door by A.M Strickland is a book that I really wanted to read last year but just never got around to. Again when I saw the E-book on sale I picked it up immediately.  This book is about a Soulwalker called Kamai who was told never to open the black door. But guess what? She opens the door. What I’m most excited about with this book is that it’s a fantasy novel with an asexual main character!

Queens of Geek by Jen Wilde is actually my most recent bookish purchase and I’m really looking forward to reading it soon. This book follows vloggers at a convention and I’ve heard the representation of all kinds is really good.

Death Prefers Blondes by Caleb Roehrig is the only book on this list that I don’t actually own yet however it is on my Amazon Wishlist I’m just waiting for the paperback to be released this July. This book kid of reminds me Hannah Montana as it follows a teenage girl who by day is a famous socialite but by night she’s pulling off high-stakes cat burglaries. Overall this book seems like a whole lot of fun and I can’t wait to read it.


So those are the five books currently on my TBR that I’m hoping to get to soon.

I’d love to know your thoughts on any of the books I talked about and I’d also love to know if there’s any other LGBT+ books you loved that I should make a priority. Thanks for reading and stay safe 🙂

  1. Aw great picks! I loved born for this, it was so beautiful, and I’ve always wanted to read the falling in love montage (it looks brilliant ha). It’s brilliant how much LBGTQ+ representation there is, it’s one of the things that has progressed so far in the book industry… although there’s a long way to go! I feel we need to stop labelling books as ‘just for gay people’ just because that’s what the characters identify as. It really limits the audience of the books. Here is some LBGTQ+ books I really want to read (a few of them were from this list!) 🙂🏳%EF%B8%8F%E2%80%8D🌈-22-lgbtq-books-on-my-radar-🏳%EF%B8%8F%E2%80%8D🌈/
