Beyond Bestsellers: LGBTQIA+

By Kaley C.

As August comes to an end, so does this month’s Beyond Bestsellers. I was pleased to see so many ebooks and eaudiobooks check out! Now, on to our lists:

A popular trope in books centered around LGBTQIA+ narratives is a tragic ending. Not so on staff member Jennifer K’s list!

I’ve written a lot about my love of graphic novels, but manga is admittedly a weak spot for me. Thank goodness there is a list out there for this month’s manga-lovers created by user lindseyanderson!

They also made an excellent list of other graphic novels that are excellent! It includes The Prince and the Dressmaker, which is so sweet. If you haven’t read it yet, I don’t think you’ll be disappointed with this story featuring a young man embracing his feminine side.

There’s also a list of poetry here, if diving deep is your thing.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this month as much as I have. I love reading, and I’m so excited I’ve gotten to share some of my favorite books with you. As always, leave a favorite in the comments if you’ve found something new this month. I’m always glad to add more things to my never ending To Be Read List.

    Even though I can’t access your library, I love your blog and have discovered (and shared) so many authors. I wonder if you might do a column on books to read aloud. I read to a group of elders who can no longer see to read. We’re currently loving The Little Old Lady who Broke all the Rules, by Catharina Ingelman-Sundberg. Any other suggestions Huge thanks for your blog.

      Hi Dorothy! Thank you so much for your kind words. We love writing the blog and are always thrilled to hear from savvy readers like you and your crew.
      Ingelman-Sundberg’s book sounds like a riot! Are there any other titles or authors that have been a hit with your group? Read-aloud books for adults sounds like a fabulous topic for a blog post.
