Favorite Queer Novel Recommendations


* queer confusion *
Heyhey!! I'm both queer and love books, so figured I'd make this thread to recommend some of my favorite queer books and hopefully get some new ones that I can read myself!! I mostly read fantasy, so majority of my recs will be fantasy.

Crier's War by Nina Varela

This is my all time favorite book. It's a girl x girl novel featuring enemies to lovers and the dumbest lesbians you'll ever meet. totally centered around their relationship. It's also very much a forbidden relationship. What more could you want from a book.

The Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon

This book has the more you could possibly want, and it has dragons. Yet another girl x girl novel with enemies to lovers and forbidden romance, but this one has dragons and magic and a grumpy old gay man. they gotta fight the big evil dragon with their magic and good dragons meanwhile fighting their own political wars.

Symptoms of Being Human by Jeff Garvin

This one isn't as much of a favorite from me, but it is pretty good. It's about this genderfluid kid named Riley who moves to a new school and has to navigate being queer in a new, possibly unwelcome environment. Very relatable if you're trans.

Magnus Chase & the Gods of Asgard by Rick Riordan

This one isn't centered around queer stuff like the others i've mentioned, but it has one of my favorite queer relationships i've ever read about. magnus, the main character, is a cis dude with an undefined sexuality, but his partner is genderfluid and they are amazing. other than them though, its about these kids who are the children of norse gods and they die and end up in asgard and have tons of adventures. really fun.

that's basically all my recommendations. please add onto this thread with any more that you have!!

reptile logic

An imposter among aliens.
The Man Who Fell In Love With The Moo by Tom Spanbauer
Description provided through Amazon:
The narrator is Shed, or Duivichi-un-Dua, a half-breed bisexual boy who makes his living at the Indian Head Hotel in the little turn-of-the-century town of Excellent, Idaho. . .

I read it over twenty years ago; found it to be harsh and ugly at times, but overall a good read.

(I may update this as I remember other, queer subject matter books.)
