Top 5 LGBTQ+ Reads

Caitsbook Top 5: LGBTQ+ Reads!

Here is a list of my favorite LGBTQ+ reads. Now, in order to count for this list, at least 50% of the book had to follow an LGBTQ+ character (so I couldn’t include The Raven Cycle or Six of Crows, sadly, but maybe I’ll make another list later!). And if you’re wondering why you’re favorite isn’t included- I probably just haven’t read it yet! There are so many great LGBTQ+ novels in the world and unfortunately, I have yet to read every single one (emphasis on yet).

Laia Recommends: The Shadow Queen by C. J. Redwine

The Shadow Queen is an amazing, breathtaking retelling of the classic tale of Snow White. It follows Lorelai, the crown princess and a fugitive in her own kingdom, who is determined to use her magic to put an end to the evil queen.  Meanwhile, Prince Kol of the neighboring kingdom has no choice but to make a  deal with the wicked queen, and serve as her huntsman and bring her Lorelai’s heart. Also, there are dragon people. I just had to mention that.

Top 5 Reads in 2018 (So Far)

As you may have seen, I’ve listed my Top Ten 2018 Releases, but I wanted to show a little love to some books I’ve read this year that were published in earlier years. Now, I’m only including books I’ve read from January to June, and I’ll compile a list full of the second half of the year’s favorite reads in December or January.

Note: These are in (somewhat) order from favorite to slightly-less-favorite-but-still-awesome.

Laia Recommends: The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater

The Raven Boys is the first book in a beautiful series following multiple amazing characters, including Blue Sargent, the only non-psychic in a family of clairvoyants. When she meets Richard Gansey and his group of prep school friends, Adam, Ronan, and Noah, Blue gets wrapped up in their quest to find a dead Welsh king. But Blue must be very careful how close she gets to these boys, for since she was a child she was warned that she will kill her true love.

Top 10 Best 2018 Releases (So Far)

There have been a lot of amazing releases this year, so far. Obviously, I haven’t been able to read them all, but I still wanted to talk about some of my favorites!  There are a few I haven’t quite gotten to yet (A Reaper At The Gates) so don’t think they’re not on this list because I hated them. I just haven’t had the time to read them (or I’m really afraid to read them, like with Reaper. Please Sabaa don’t hurt these characters anymore they need a break!) Also, I’m not including any books being released after June, I’ll make a different list in December or January covering all of those releases.

Okay on with the top ten!

Sidenote: I’m extremely indecisive so they aren’t in any particular order, with the exception of the first three probably being my top 3 reads this year.
