#YABkLove Day 5: #Pride

#YABkLove Day 5

Since we are starting this just following Pride month I hope some people have some great recommendations for all types of books of LGBTQIA representation. I am so woefully under-read in this area and I need you guys to school me, please! Especially in the #ownvoices arena!

dream thieves

This first character coming to mind (of course it isn’t #ownvoices) is Ronan in The Raven Chronicles series. Dream Thieves is a major favorite of mine because of how it told his story of coming to terms with his own abilities as a dream thief and his love for his best friend. The book is bookend, so to speak, with Ronan’s three secrets and the writing style worked perfectly for me.

carry on

I also so much love Baz from Carry On. He is a mess in his love/hate for Simon. I wanted to squish their faces together. I listened to this book on audio and I made it to a very famous chapter and ended up sitting it my car longer once I got home from work in order to hear it to the end.

A new release I’m excited to read but haven’t yet is Ramona Blue by Julie Murphy.

#YaBkLove Help Still Needed!

July is just around the corner and that means that we will be starting #YaBkLove soon! As you can see from the graphic below, we are still in need of prompts. Some excellent ones have already been suggested to get people talking, but we would love to hear some more ideas for what kind of topics you think would get people sharing their favorite Young Adult titles. Don’t be afraid to toss out something that might generate something obscure. You can reply here or on Twitter. Share these posts and, of course, join us on July 1!
