The LGBTQ+ Book Tag!

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?
