#BestReadsOf2020 : Day 5 Best LGBTQ stories

Hi friends,

 

Today is day 5 of our Best Reads of 2020 and here I come with a little game again!

 

You are a jury in the cutest LGBTQ couple ever and the percentage of your battery will tell you who will be your winners!

0-20% : Nick Bell and Seth Gray from the Extraordinaries;
21-40%: Linus Baker and Arthur Parnassus from The House in the Cerulean Sea;
41-60% : Ox and Joe from Wolfsong;
61-80% : Luc and Oliver from Boyfriend Material;
81-100%: Alex and Henry from Red, White and Royal Blue

Today in #BestReadsOf2020 we are choosing our best LGBTQ book!
.
Honestly I have been on a MM roll since three months and have read amazing stories!
.
I loved:

 The House in the Cerulean Sea by TJ Klune (so refreshing! This is optimism and kindness in a bottle);

The Extraordinaries by TJ Klune so funny and moving;

Boyfriend Material by Alexis Hall is my most recent and instant hit!

The audio was incredible! Thank you to @oliviascatastrophe for having pushed that book so hard on me 🤣

But my BIG WINNER this year was Red, White and Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston.


Big crush!

I am utterly astonished at how that read excels in being charming, droll, sarcastic, moving and romantic at the same time.

“I thought, this is the most incredible thing I have ever seen, and I had better keep it a safe distance away from me. I thought, if someone like that ever loved me, it would set me on fire.
And then I was a careless fool, and I fell in love with you anyway. When you rang me at truly shocking hours of the night, I loved you. When you kissed me in disgusting public toilets and pouted in hotel bars and made me happy in ways in which it had never even occurred to me that a mangled-up, locked-up person like me could be happy, I loved you.
And then, inexplicably, you had the absolute audacity to love me back. Can you believe it?
Sometimes, even now, I still can’t.”
― Casey McQuiston, Red, White & Royal Blue

SWOON!!!! 😀 

And contrary to some readers, the political plot did not deter me in the least. Given the recent events this year I found it even more interesting.

 

What are your favorite LGBTQ reads this year?

 

Thanks for reading!
