Queer And Transgender YA Novels I *must* get in 2020

These are only the ones I am aware of. I like to think I’m pretty plugged into this side of Book Twitter but some may still slip past me! For newer people, I am Gender Queer. Sometimes I use Agender, Genderfluid or Transgender. I have not settled my labels but I am Non-Binary. If any the authors pronouns are wrong in this post, feel free to let me know! I don’t have them all followed on Twitter and Goodreads rarely includes Pronouns, same for Amazon book listings.

We Used To Be Friends by Amy Spalding. I’ll be ordering this book this weekend. While I would love to see more queen 13-15 year olds in YA instead of collage aged teenagers, I love books that deal with the after math of coming out and who is standing beside you once you are fully out.

Dark And Deepest Red by Anna-Marie McLemore. Currently reading. I love Their books for great Gender Queer rep. Blanca and Roja by this author is one of the way I realized I was Gender Queer and later came out.

We Are Totally Normally by  Rahul Kanakia. We need more messy Queer books. We need the right to question, fear and even have ways to work out of our hatred of ourselves. I’m so tired of the debate on what is and isn’t allowed in Queer books. I hate “bury your gays” troop, but don’t sell me nothing but happy the whole book either. Thats not the reality of most of us. The book has Bisexual and Transgender rep. The book is getting alot of hatred and some is even directed at the author.

All The Boys Aren’t Blue by George M. Johnson. Not a fiction novel but still something I can’t wait to get my hands on it!

The Deck Of Omens by Christine Lynn Herman. Violet and Isaac are both Bisexual. The first book was just so damn good. I wish the series would be longer than just 2 novels.

Felix Ever After by Kacen Callender. Felix is Transgender. I’m always happy to find more YA books with Trans rep.

The Fascinators by Andrew Eliopulos. Queer Witches? Sign me up!

Out Now: Queer Now Again by Saundra Mitchell. I got the first book, All Out. It was so good! I’m hoping for more Trans and AroAce rep this time around.

This Coven Won’t Break by Isabel Sterling. The first book had Lesbian, Bisexual and Trans rep. Hoping to see that continued in this book as well.

Cemetery Boys by Aiden Thomas. Queer And Trans rep with magick thrown in is my favorite.

Love is for losers by Wibke Brueggemann. Can’t say if the MC is Lesbian, Bisexual nor pan. Just that its Girl loving another girl. But still looks good.

Ninth Life by  Taylor B. Barton. Queer And Trans Rep. Really curious about this one!

Gold Wings Rising by  Alex London. Brysen has been gay in the first 2 novels in the series, so this one has atleast one gay character for us to look forward to.

The Madness Blooms by Mackenzi Lee. I loved her Loki book and her Gentlemen guide series. Transgender rep in this one.
