Aristotle & Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe – Benjamin Alire Sáenz (My Review)

GoodReads Average: 4.34

I didn’t LOVE this book but I know that the majority of people who have read this really enjoyed it so you should definitely give it a go. (Gay romance)


Beauty Queens – Libba Bray

GoodReads Average Rating: 3.59

Beauty Queens is, compared to a lot of YA novels, really diverse. There are lesbian characters, a trans character and a deaf character. Obviously, I recommend all of the books on this list but if you pick up any of these I urge you to read this one. (Lesbian Romance)


The Raven Cycle – Maggie Stiefvater (My reviews – Book 3 | Book 4)

GoodReads Average Ratings:  4.04 ~4.28 ~4.34 ~4.37

This is an amazing series (one of my all time favourites) and I can’t recommend it enough. This series certainly isn’t the most diverse in terms of race but there is a gay character who I can almost guarantee you will love. Also, do yourself a favour and don’t spoil yourself by googling who the gay character is because that will ruin the story somewhat. (Gay Romance)


Everything Leads to You – Nina LaCour

GoodReads Average Rating: 3.87

This isn’t an overwhelmingly fantastic novel but I found myself smiling and having an amazing time when I read it. (Lesbian Romance)


Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda – Becky Albertalli

GoodReads Average Rating: 4.27/5

I absolutely love this book. I read it twice in two days and honestly regret nothing. I can’t recommend this noel enough. (Gay romance)



The Trials of Apollo Series – Rick Riordan (Review of Book 1)

GoodReads Average Rating: 4.40

The main character of this series, Apollo is a bisexual character and certainly doesn’t shy away from telling the reader so. There are also to side characters in this series who are in a relationship (gay romance).



Beauty Queens – Libba Bray

GoodReads Average Rating: 3.59

There’s a trans character in this novel who stands up for them self and doesn’t take anyone’s shit, definitely a character to remember.



We Awaken – Calista Lynne

GoodReads Average Rating: 3.29

This is the only book on this post that I haven’t read but I’ve heard great things about it. Honestly, I’ve never read a book with an ace character, something I’m hoping to remedy by the end of this year.
