The LGBTQ+ Rep Book Tag

Big thanks to Sabrina @ Notes From A Paper Plane Nomad for tagging me and apologies for the delay. This tag really shouldn’t have been as hard as it was for but either I don’t have a good memory or I really need to read more LGBTQ+ books to expand my repertoire.

Rules:

  • Thank whoever tagged you and link to their blog post.
  • Link to the original creator: The Sassy Library Fox! And please credit The Sassy Library Fox if you use (copy & paste) the artwork/ graphics.
  • Match books with the given prompts.
  • Tag as many people as you like!
  • Post the rules and the list of prompts in your tag post.

the long way to a small angry planet

There are so many memorable characters in this book but Rosemary is an excellent lesbian lead.

gentleman vice

He’s a total disaster magnet but we all love Monty anyway!

seven husbands

Bi-rep is done extremely well in this book, so is the retribution wreaked on a biphobic character.

coldest girl

Valentina is a great character and one that neatly averts the ‘trans-equals-gay’ cliche.

beyond

Anything with asexual rep is something I want to read. Beyond the Black Door is a great example of that but I’d love to read more. If anyone has an recommendations, let me know in the comments!
prince and the dressmaker

Sometimes, Sebastien feels like a prince and, sometimes, he feels like a princess. What Sebastian is every moment of the day is awesome!

doorway

The Wayward Children series is a veritable smorgasbord of LGBT+ rep. We’ve got a lesbian couple, an asexual character, a trans character and the latest instalment is led by an intersex character.

priory

Ead and Sabran are such a power couple!

heartstopper

Got to copy Sabrina and go with Nick and Charlie from Heartstopper!

with the fire on high

Angelica is such a great friend to Emoni and her scenes with her girlfriend are so cute!

six of crows

Yep, copying Sabrina again but, in all fairness, Jesper and Wylan are awesome! Speaking of awesome, have you checked out this cool Six of Crows animation by ToastyGlow? It’s ace!

henna wars

Going to have to delve into my TBR for this one and go with The Henna Wars. I’ve heard a lot of good things about this so I have high hopes for it.

in deeper waters

Gay love on tall ships with A Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue vibes and a cover with two cute men looking at each other with utter adoration? Sign me up!

Cheating a little bit because this has already been released but I haven’t read it yet so it counts. I love the author and I love the premise so I’m excited to get my hands on it.

I tag anyone who has read more LGBTQ+ books than me!

I hope to see you again very soon.

  1. There are so many great books I’ve read and loved! 🙂 I really need to read “The Prince and the Dressmaker” and “Every Heart A Doorway” though! They both sound great and I’m always ready for a non-binary rep. Thank you so much for doing the tag! It was super interesting to read your answers.

  2. Ahhh great picks!! I first saw that Six of Crows animation a few years ago and I still rewatch it 😂 to this day it’s the best book-related animation I’ve ever seen. I love it so much! I’m really excited to read the Wayward Children series and Evelyn Hugo book – I’ve heard nothing but great things and it’s a bonus that they have LGBTQ+ rep!
