So you’re in the mood for books with lesbian protagonists

I’m a lesbian, I’m in Paris, this is a perfect opportunity for me to talk about books that have lesbian protagonists! Nah, I’m joking, every day is a good opportunity for that…

I mean, as someone who co-runs a blog specifically dedicated to LGBT media… Did y’all expect anything else from me? But yeah, check out Reads Rainbow, if you still haven’t! Charlotte just posted a rec list of novellas!

Today’s list is seven books long again. I was trying to decide which books to rec and which to leave out & then I realised: this is my blog! those are lesbians! Of course I should rec every single one I want to.

Hopefully everyone will find something for themself here, since we have contemporary, fantasy, science-fiction… Even one new adult book! Don’t tell me I’m not great at rec lists.

So you’re in the mood for lgbt books with the found family trope

Found family is one of my favourite tropes and I’m definitely not alone in that. I mean, I actually know for sure because I was running a poll on twitter to figure out what my theme should be today – and most of y’all voted for found families.

And so here we are. But of course I had to make it harder for myself and decided to only rec books with gay characters. Which, depending how you look at it, might have been my best idea yet. I was pretty close to just reccing Les Mis otherwise and being done with it…

Let’s dive in!
