Jane, Unlimited by Kristin Cashore

An ambitious novel about grief, adventure, storytelling, and finding yourself in a world of seemingly infinite choices.

“A genre-obliterating book…all but rewires your brain as you read it.” —The New York Times Book Review

You’re So Dead by Ash Parsons

A hilarious Agatha Christie-inspired YA thriller-comedy about three best friends who sneak into an influencers-only festival event (gone wrong), only to discover a killer is in their midst–and they have to uncover the truth and solve the mystery before it’s too late.

The Coldest Touch by Isabel Sterling

“Vampires going to high school, but make it queer. Sterling delivers a fresh, thoughtful take on beloved paranormal tropes with a delightfully bloody romance.” —Mara Fitzgerald, author of Beyond the Ruby Veil

Look by Zan Romanoff

Look is about what you present vs. who you really are, about real and manufactured intimacy and the blurring of that line. It’s a deceptively glamorous, utterly compelling, beautifully written, queer coming-of-age novel about falling in love and taking ownership of your own self–your whole self–in the age of social media.

Fire (Graceling Realm series) by Kristin Cashore

“There are some books that stick with you for years, and Kristen Cashore’s Fire is one of them. Thoughtful, steamy and completely original, Fire is YA fantasy at its absolute best.”—Sabaa Tahir, author of New York Times bestselling Ember in the Ashes

The Edge of Being by James Brandon

The Girls I’ve Been by Tess Sharpe

Nora is trapped as a bank heist hostage with her ex-boyfriend and her new girlfriend, and we love the evolution of the relationship Nora, Wes, and Ivy have in this upcoming suspenseful thriller. The twisted web of secrets, lies, and murder is MUCH more complex than a love triangle.

Verona Comics by Jennifer Dugan

This heart-warming queer love story set in an indie comic book shop is also a thoughtful depiction of living with anxiety and depression, as Ridley and Jubliee come together amidst their families feuding and Jubliee’s cellist ambitions. We LOVE a contemporary reimagining of the Romeo & Juliet dynamic!

Her Royal Highness by Rachel Hawkins

Running away from her ex-girlfriend, Millie gets accepted to a boarding school in Scotland and finds out she’s living with a literal princess of Scotland. If you love the Disney Channel original movie Princess Protection Program and the rivals-to-lovers trope, this is the queer romance for you!

That Inevitable Victorian Thing by E.K. Johnston

Set in a near-future world where the British Empire was preserved not by the cost of blood and theft but by the effort of repatriation and promises kept, That Inevitable Victorian Thing is a surprising, romantic, and thought-provoking story of love, duty, and the small moments that can change people and the world.
