The LGBTQIAP+ Books of Our Dreams


Let the recs begin. I’ll be breaking this into multiple parts, and will tag them #queerdreambooks 

I have listed books for every single tweet for which I could think of some. Where there are tweets that repeat requests, I have gone with the first tweet I saw that mentioned that request. If something is missing, it’s because I wasn’t familiar enough to give suggestions or couldn’t find any books to suggest.

I strongly encourage everyone, authors and publishers especially, to go over the list and offer their own suggestions. 

And please spread this as far as you can, if you don’t mind. The biggest problem in queer fiction seems to be that often people simply don’t realize the books they want exist, and not everyone can find them easily. I think this is an opportunity to help fix that.

This is gonna be a LOOOOOOONG post.

Author: Penny Wilder

Penny Wilder is a queer human who writes and reads far too many books. She lives near Minneapolis, Minnesota with her husband and four cats. Her favorite thing to do at the end of a very long day is to curl up with her tablet and read. She does bookkeeping for nonprofits by day, and by night moonlights as a blogger, artist, illustrator, actor, director, performer, and also sometimes as a business manager for a fledgling theater company. (Not all at once though, because that would be crazy!) She has spent a good deal of her life working in theater; either onstage as a performer, or backstage doing just about every job imaginable. Her love of writing dates back almost as far as her love of reading.
