Happy Friday bookish people! Today I am very excited to be bringing you this book tag today, in the UK June is Pride month so I thought this would be a great book tag to do. I especially felt like doing this tag because my own sexuality has been on my mind a lot recently, after being in a serious relationship I have started to realise that I may actually be on the ace/asexual spectrum. I’ve done a lot of reading on the topic since I started to think more about it and it’s strange because the more I read the more I feel so sure that this is me. Anyway, I read that this may be part of the LGBTQ+ spectrum (please correct me if I am wrong about this) and so I thought this tag would be fitting.
I found this tag on Annas Book Knook blog on wordpress. I will try and answer with books that I own and that I have read but I will admit I don’t have that many books with LGBTQ+ Rep in them.
Female Strength: A book with a lesbian heroine
Right after I’ve said that I will only choose books I have read… I am choosing one I haven’t read but I have heard that it has a focus on a lesbian relationship – Plain Bad Heroines by Emily M Danforth
Cinnamon Roll: A book with an adorable gay character
For this I chose the character of Robin Blythe from A Marvelous Light by Freya Marske
Boys and Girls: A book with bi rep done right
I can’t really speak so much about this because I don’t identify as bi, but for this one I chose Girl, Serpent, Thorn by Melissa Basherdoust
The Body and the Soul: A book with a trans character
For this one, again I had to choose a book that I haven’t read because I don’t own any but I chose Meet Cute Diary by Emery Lee
We’re all queer: queer rep you’d love to see more of
After realising I might be ace, I’d love to see more books with ace rep in them
All about pronouns: A book with a non-binary character
I didn’t pick a book for this question because I didn’t already own any and I didn’t want to choose too many more books that I haven’t read so if you have any reccomendations let me know!
Aromantic Ace: A book that belongs to the aro/ace spectrum
I have heard that there are characters in Vicious by V E Schwab that are aro/aceand I enjoy that book a lot so that’s the one I chose.
One Big Family: A book that features lots of different LGBTQ+ reps
Again I didn’t choose one for this because I could not find one on my shelf or through a search of recommendations so again if you know of any good ones, let me know.
Sapphic Love: Your favourite F/F couple
For this one I chose Dangerous Remedy by Kat Dunn
Boys Love: Your M/M OTP
For this one I chose one of my favourite books, The Starless Sea by Erin Morgenstern
Sidekick: Your favourite LGBTQ+ side character
Stealing the show: An LGBTQ+ side character couple
I chose the sister (I can’t think of the names right now!) and her girlfriend in Pumpkin by Julie Murphy
Strong Beliefs: An LGBTQ+ book that deals with religion
Again, I could not find a book for this question.
Rainbows Everywhere: A book with an unapologetic cover
For this one I chose the cover of Especially Earnest by Molly Horan
Future Generations: Your most anticipated LGBTQ+ release
I am really excited for A Little Bit Country by Brian D Kennedy
That’s it for this book tag, I hope you all enjoyed it! How would you answer these?
