Six For Sunday is a weekly meme created by Steph @ A Little But A Lot. The meme was created to list 6 things we love/hate every Sunday. The prompts are mainly bookish.

This post contains major spoilers for all the couples I picked.

6. Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli

I love this cute coming to age story. Simon and Blue are so cute together but I decided not to put it higher in the list. It’s very cute like I said but Simon had no idea who he was 90% of the book and Blue was too afraid to him.

5. The Angel by by Tiffany Reisz

This book is not for everyone. I read the first book a long time ago when I first finished Fifty Shades of Grey. It got me to try other books featuring BDSM. Now this is the only book of the series I enjoy. Nora takes Michael with her to meet Griffin, so they can teach him more about BDSM. This book has age difference and mentions of self harm but I really enjoy rereading this when the mood hits me.

4. Red, White & Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston

I was scared to this one since it’s such a hyped up book but I’m so glad I did. This book is about President’s son and Prince becoming from enemies to lovers. What’s not to love about that? It also helps that I love Alex’s humor. You can read my review about it here.

3. Magnus Chase series by Rick Riordan

This is one of the few middle grade books I enjoy and while there’s not many mentions about characters being LGBT+. Magnus is Pansexual or Bisexual character and I just love his humor. The series also presents genderfluid characters, like the gods and Magnus’ love interest Alex.

2. Shadowhunter Chronicles by Cassandra Clare

I couldn’t just pick one book since this world has like seventeen-ish books and Magnus and Alec appear in many of them. The Red Scrolls of Magic (you can read my review here) and Ghosts of the Shadow Marker (you can read my review here) are probably my favorite. These books might me intimidating since there’s a lot of them but Magnus and Alec are the very first lgbt+ ship I started liking and they’re amazing. I love all the growth they went together.

1. Carry On by Rainbow Rowell

To be clear I only count the first book but I absolutely loved Carry On. The second book was too angsty and Baz and Simon deserved better. A lot of people call this book Harry Potter rip of and Simon and Baz are like Harry and Draco but still some how I gave this one five stars but somehow DNF’d Harry Potter. I recommend this to people who like magic and enemies to lovers trope. You can read my review here.

Any LGBT+ books you’d recommend?

  1. I do need to hop on the hype train and FINALLY get to Simon VS (haven’t watched the movie either xd) and red, white & royal blue!

    As I worked in a sexshop before, I kinda wanna try books with BDSM/other kinks in them.. So The Angel kinda interest me, but it depend on how big the age gap is- Like there was one I really DIDNT enjoyed (a M/M arc) because one guy was 18 while the other was 25 ithink … mainly because majority’s age is 19 here so it felt just, not okay to me personally. As long as they are both over 19, I don’t think it’d trouble me that much.
