LGBTQIA+ Book Recommendations by Genre (Part 2)

EVEN MORE queer recs to add to your TBR!

If you missed part 1, I shared a bunch of YA and Middle Grade book recommendations for both Pride Month and beyond.

Today I’m sharing a whole ton of Adult titles in different genres. Because you can never have too many queer books on your TBR ❤️

As usual – the title link will take you to a full review if I have one and the Goodreads Page is linked if you want to learn more!

Adult Fantasy

I don’t have many books on this list simply because this isn’t a genre I’ve been reading lately. But I have a ton on my TBR! (keep your eyes open for that list 👀)

1. Black Water Sister by Zen Cho

2. The Witch’s Heart by Genevieve Gornichec

Goodreads Page

Representation: M-Spec

“When a banished witch falls in love with the legendary trickster Loki, she risks the wrath of the gods in this moving, subversive debut novel that reimagines Norse mythology.”

Adult Contemporary Romance

These are wonderful, traditionally published contemporaries with queer centered romances.

“With nods to Bridget Jones and Pride and Prejudice, a charming #ownvoices queer rom-com debut about a free-spirited social media astrologer who agrees to fake a relationship with an uptight actuary until New Year’s Eve—with results not even the stars could predict!”

Adult Historical Romance

This is another one I’m lacking recommendations for but I’m hoping to fix that this year. I have a whole author to recommend though!

Cat Sebastian
