Back at it again, with the Top 5 Wednesday, this week focusing on our top 5 favourite LGBTQ+ reads, whether the author identifies, whether the main character identifies, whether the side characters identifies.
So, shall we begin?
I’ve decided to narrow down my list to those books that I love that include characters that identify as LGBQT+!
O N E – The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli
Only, one of the most diverse books I’ve read in recent memory. I cannot recommend this book enough. The representation of all is done so eloquently and excellently that I cannot stop raving about this book.
T W O – The Long Way To A Small Angry Planet by Becky Chambers
This book was one of my favourites of last year, and one of my favourites of all time. I loved all the relationships in this book. The variant characters and even species in this novel are all so well thought out and developed.
T H R E E – The Perks of Being a Wallflower – Stephen Chbosky
But who didn’t love Patrick? He was witty and egotistical, and caring and fragile. Patrick was a highlight of the book and the film for me.
F O U R – Six of Crows duology by Leigh Bardugo
Because Jesper and Wylan were wonderful both together and apart. Jesper the gun-sure gambler with a soft spot for the newcomer explosives expert. Honestly, every interaction they shared had me squealing with delight!
F I V E – Ready Player One by Ernest Cline
You know. I can’t spoil it for those who haven’t read it. But, you know.
