Hi friends, I am back with another Six for Sunday hosted by A Little But A Lot! Today’s prompt is stories that fill you with hope. So, this prompt made me think about the books that made mee feel hopeful about my life and the world. You may start to see a theme here, but that’s okay. Anyway, all these books gave me hope in some way and I’ll talk a little bit about that. Here we go!
A Human’s Guide to Wooing an Asexual Incubi by Nikole Knight
I really enjoyed this book when I read it last year. I loved the conversations about gender and sex in relation to a incubi/succubus creatures. I loved the relationship between the two main characters and how asexuality was discussed and treated. It gave me hope watching two people navigate relationships and how they could fulfill each others needs and desires within that relationship.
Best Laid Plans by Roan Parrish
Best Laid Plans is one of those books that tugged at my heartstrings. I loved watching Charlie figure out his sexuality as someone later in life. I always love seeing people in their mid twenties and up figuring out their sexuality. I loved seeing Charlie and Rye develop a relationship and deal with a lot of trauma and difficult topics.
Not Your Type by Elizabeth Jeannel
Not Your Type was one of those books that I read expecting to be great and then it really hit me in the gut and almost brought me to tears. The discussion of toxic and abusive relationships was really incredible. I also really liked the discussion of asexuality and learning to love yourself, while also learning that you deserve to be loved and cared for. I really liked this book and it brought me so much hope watching these characters grow and learn from each other.
Shake Things Up by Skye Kilaen
I adored Shake Things Up. Skye Kilaen is one of those authors that I think I will love so many things that she rights going forward. I adored watching Ali, Matt, and Noelle navigate new feelings, new relationships, figuring out your sexuality as an adult. It was just really nice to see people figuring things out and going for what they want with their lives.
The Charm Offensive by Alison Cochrun
I think you might be starting to see a theme here. The Charm Offensive is another book where Charlie is learning about himself while on a dating show and trying to figure out what to do with his life going forward after being forced out of his company. It was really nice to watch Charlie and Dev get to know each other and figure out what they wanted to do with their lives.
Royal Rescue by A. Alex Logan
Last, but certainly not least, Royal Rescue was about young adults figure out what they wanted out of life and how they wanted to change the world so that it fit what people wanted in their own lives. I really enjoyed watching these teens grow and change and change the world.
What books brought you hope?
