18 Books For Pride 2018 Part 3

Another day, another 3 LGBT+ book recommendations to celebrate Pride Month 2018. This marks day 3 of my intrepid adventure into YA books and in case you missed Part 1 or Part 2, I’m recommending 18 LGBT+ books over six days to get 18 books for Pride 2018.

On a side note, my friend Amy from Amy’s Bookish Life has been doing a similar style of Pride Recommendations and her latest post is right here. 

Now, let’s get back to my recommendations for today.

3 LGBT+ Books You Need To Read


7. Out Of The Blue by Sophie Cameron (bi representation with a f/f romance and a disabled main character)

This is one of the most outstanding debut novels I’ve read in 2018, with an interesting and unique concept that’s weaved into an enthralling and captivating book. I loved the casual representation and how the characters’ sexualities or disabilities aren’t their defining characteristics. So often a character’s sole story is their sexuality, which makes Out Of The Blue just a real treat to read. Also, that cover is just gorgeous.

9. If I Was Your Girl by Meredith Russo (transgender representation and ownvoices book)

A beautiful YA contemporary that, I believe, shows an honest portrayal of being trans, but I’m not trans, so please check out an own voices reviews here. I have a close friend who is transgender and am always looking to educate myself, so I can support them more. This is definitely the book for that. If I Was Your Girl doesn’t shy away from the darker side of society, with transphobia and sexism being a common theme in the book, but it also utilises a hopeful view of reality, creating a mix between the two that feels honest to that person’s experience. Amanda is such a strong character and I hope many more people will discover her story.

That’s my three recommendations for today, but please comment down below what LGBT+ YA reads you’d recommend.
