Okay, there are two important things about this week’s post that we gotta clear up right at the start, before we actually get into this.
- When I say “translated books”, I mean books that were translated into English from any given language. There were a few good books I couldn’t include here simply because they were written in a foreign language (to y’all English natives), but weren’t translated into English. Yet, hopefully.
- I actually only have read one of the books I’m reccing this week. And it’s not even a book, it’s a manga. What can I say, it’s kind of hard to find lgbt books that aren’t by English speaking authors, let alone ones I’ve personally read…
I guess we can do this now.

Like I said before, this month I’m only talking about LGBT books!! So of course it’s natural I put together a reading list of some kind, specifically for the occasion. I have no doubt in my mind that I won’t read all those books this month. I’ll be lucky if I read like half! But it’s important to set goals for yourself, right? And anyway, the idea is that in June I will read books only from this list! We’ll see how that goes…
There’s also a little bit of everything on here, to keep things interesting. We have poetry, we have nonfiction, we have young adult contemporaries, fantasy, science-fiction, we have adult fiction… I tried to put some diversity here as well, so it’s not all just books by white American authors about m/m ships.
Some other points about the list before we actually start it:
- all the books listed here have lgbt leads
- all the books are written by lgbt authors
- (though they’re not always ownvoices for the specific rep)
- I haven’t read any of those books myself yet
- the books are in no particular order
Okay, I think we can do this now.
