2015 YA Books with LGBTQIA Themes and 5 Reasons to Сatch Them Up


As I can remember, I’ve always loved stories with LGBTQIA themes. I was happy, because it allows heterosexual people to see such a relationship and understand that they are the most usual relationship between two people. In other words, it helps others to understand that people can love each other regardless of their gender.
All that upset me was a very limited number of such books.
Until this year.

So I present to you my list of books with LGBTQIA characters, which will be released in 2015 and which I’m dying to read (for the reasons listed below).

1) Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli

19547856 (1)

Five reasons to read this as soon as possible:

  1. This cover just gorgeous. Look at the cloud instead of the head. I never tire of admiring it.
  2. It has such beautiful lines like this quote, which I also don’t get tired to reread.
  3. I love every aspect of the existence of Becky Albertalli and the fact that she wrote this book because this lady is wonderful in every sense.
  4. The main character Simon Spier loves Oreo. Oreo!!!
  5. This is one of the most interesting plots that I’ve ever seen. I already want to know who Blue is.

And I repeat, Oreo!!!

2) More Happy Than Not by Adam Silvera

  2. While reading this, you can joke that now you are more happy than not.
  3. It seems this thing should be very emotional. Stock up on napkins.
  4. A man named Adam Silvera simply can’t write badly. It’s a great name.
  5. Now I’m sorry, but this cover colors like the flag of my country. Lol. If I buy it, then everyone will think that I’m a patriot.

  1. Oooh, I hadn’t heard about Willful Machines until now and it sounds really cool and I love that title and cover! Totally adding it to my TBR.

    Really looking forward to all these books! I’m not sure about Under the Lights since I haven’t read the first book in the series, but I do absolutely love that cover and it really makes me want to read it. 😀

    There are tons of great-looking LGBTQ books coming out this year! There’s Anything Could Happen by Will Walton as well, and The Flywheel by Erin Gough (which is only being published in Australia at the moment, I think…) I also read an ARC of Not Otherwise Specified by Hannah Moskowitz, coming out in March, and it’s EXCELLENT and you really must grab a copy when it comes out!

    Have you read Pantomime by Laura Lam? The MC in that is intersex as well. It’s a great book!


    • Ah, I’m so glad that you liked my post. You read so many LGBT books! That’s really great. Thank you for your advices, I added all of these books to my to-read list 🙂


      • Haha, yeah, I try and make it my mission to read at least one LGBTQ book a month! I read over 20 last year, I think? 😀 If you ever need any more recommendations just come yell at me and I will give you ALL the recommendations.
