Maja (The Moonlight Reader) (majalovesreading) | 642 comments We are now having readathons! I'm so excited XD. The way it will work is that you have 5 prompts, which I will post soon. Try to read a book with at least one of the prompts! The person who reads the most pages of a book with this prompt wins. Enjoy!

rose - 忻怡 - (_imperfection) Hi! I've been wanting to read books with LGBTQ+ representation for literally years but sadly my parents simply disagree with me so I have absolutely no exposure to them. I'd be glad if you guys have some great recommendations for me and if this comment somehow insults anyone or make anyone get any wrong ideas, just know that I'm sorry and I really don't mean to make anyone feel uncomfortable.

Don't worry, we are an LGBTQA+ friendly group :) I would definitely recommend You Should See Me In A Crown!

message 14: by rose - 忻怡 - (new)

rose - 忻怡 - (_imperfection) Thanks Maja! I'll definitely read that :)


message 15: by Lucy Tonks, Shadowhunter - Head of BOTM (new)

Lucy Tonks | 2037 comments @Rose i totlly recommend you read radio silence by alice oseman and heartstopper by alice oseman. i've read both of them recently and i just loved them. i also recommend:
i'll give you the sun by jandy nelson
ace of shades by amanda foody (one of the mc is black and bisexual)
girls of paper and fire by natasha ngan
and every book by cassandra clare some lgbt rep in them, for example in some of her later books we have a poly relationship and a trans character. out of all her books the ingernal devices has the least rep, but that's mostly bc of the time period it takes in. the rest of her books (the last hours, the mortal instruments, the dark artifices, the eldest curses) all have significant characters who are part of the lgbt community.
rick riordan's book also have lgbt rep, but mostly in his later books (somewhere from house of hades onward and also magnus chase too)
