Click on the titles to check out the reviews.
Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli
This YA is one of my favorite YA’s and LGBT+ books out there. It’s a fun, real, but also important book about this normal guy living in a your average US-hometown, dealing with everyday teenage problems, and having a major secret. I have yet to meet someone who didn’t like this book.
Fourteen Summers by Quinn Anderson
This NA is about twin-brothers Aiden & Max and their best friend Oliver. It’s a story about the guys’ friendship, one twin brother falling in love with the best friend, trying to juggle your new relationship as a twosome, your friendship as a trio, and family. This novel made me laugh and fall in love with all three characters.
Caterpillars Can’t Swim by Liane Shaw
This YA is a novel not only about a young gay guy in high school dealing with homophobic classmates, it’s also about living a life with a disability. Ryan is tied to a wheelchair but refuses to be pitied by anyone in school or his hometown. This story was really inspiring and super interesting.
If I Tell You by Alicia Tuckerman
This novel was perhaps one of the most honest and realest stories about a LGBT+ teen I have read. Alex lives in a super conservative part of Australia and is not only afraid of coming out to her friends and family, she’s also afraid of their reactions and possible resentment. I really enjoyed Tuckerman’s writing which conveyed Alex’s struggle perfectly.
If You Say So by Teagan Hunter
I love the Boyfriends. So much. Blake and Nate are everything which is why I recommend this novella to all M/M lovers out there. By picking up If You Say So you are in for a roller coaster of emotions.
The Angelheart Saga by Annie Woods
All three books in this trilogy are considered a YA/NA Romance but are one of the most friendliest LGBT+ books I have read.
