I am back with another Six for Sunday hosted by A Little But A Lot! Today’s prompt is stories that sing of pride. I’m going to interpret this one as books that are unshakingly, unapologetically queer and just SING queerness and pride in all its forms.
Hell Followed With Us by Andrew Joseph White
This is my newest favourite horror book and let me tell you that it is unapologetically queer and filled with queer rage. As much as it is a horror book and deals with difficult topics, it is full of what pride means. To fight for your right to exist.
Our Bloody Pearl by D.N. Bryn
I adored this fantasy book about sirens and pirates and found family. I loved how there were queer characters and they just existed without question. This book isn’t about romance but it’s about found family and supporting the people you care about.
Restricted by A.C. Thomas
Restricted is a sci-fi book that felt unapologetically queer. The conversations about sexuality were open and honest, and they were more about discovering what someone was into than the hardship of being queer.
Snapdragon by Kat Leyh
I adored this graphic novel about some queer kids living their lives and finding friends in strange places. I’m obviously all about found family and people supporting each other in their lives and experiences.
The Tea Dragon Society by K. O’Neill
The Tea Dragon Society is the softest cutest graphic novel series about dragons that grow tea leaves and making friends. I just love how soft and sweet this story is and how diverse it is!
Alien: Echo by Mira Grant
Alright, my last pick is another horror book because boy do I love horror books with queer teens being badass. This one is sapphic and I loved watching these teens just express their feelings while also running for their lives.
