Fae Friday

Fae Friday – LGBTQ+ Books

Fae Friday is an awesome new weekly post created by Kristy at Caffeinated Fae. I’m super excited to participate in this (and to have been an avid supporter of it from the beginning)! A topic is provided each week, and Kristy is so welcoming to ideas from others. If you have any ideas for topics, reach out to her through her blog or on Twitter (@caffeinatedfae).

Here’s the rules:

  • Link back to this page on Caffeinated Fae.
  • If the prompt idea comes from another blog, link to that blog as well.
  • Use #FaeFriday when posting to social media so we can all find each other!
  • Participate when you can and have fun with the prompt!

It doesn’t matter what letter in the LGBTQ+ alphabet you are, you are valid, accepted, and loved. July 31st is a day to celebrate the fantastic people who make up the LGBTQ+ community! That is why the prompt this week is:

What is your favorite book that features LGBTQ+ characters?

It was such a tough choice to pick just one favorite book featuring LGBTQ+ characters, especially with so many great books out there, and many being released this year. I couldn’t pick just one, so here are two that I absolutely loved this year:

Obviously, I couldn’t skip (yet another) opportunity to shout from the rooftops about You Should See Me in a Crown by Leah Johnson. The story was such a great one and I absolutely loved the sweet romance!

Dark and Deepest Red by Anna-Marie McLemore was another book I loved. It’s a really cool mix of a fairy tale retelling, historical fiction, and contemporary, and I loved all the characters. The story itself is incredibly absorbing, and the romance had me melting into puddles.

What are some of your favorite books featuring LGBTQ+ characters?
