#5OnMyTBR | 5 Books with an LGBTQ+ Main Character on my TBR

#5OnMyTBR is a bookish meme hosted by E. @ Local Bee Hunter’s Nook and you can learn more about it here or in the post announcing it. It occurs every Monday when we post about 5 books on our TBR.


This week’s topic is books with a LGBTQ+ main character. I picked 5 books, which all happen to be fantasy. They all look so good – I hate that they have to sit on my TBR list for so long.

#1 Prince Lestat and the Realms of Atlantis by Anne Rice

I am pretty sure this is the only Vampire Chronicles book that I have not read. I love Anne Rice books from vampires to witches – the worlds she creates are complex, dangerous, and have an indescribable beauty to them.

#2 Girls of Paper and Fire by Natasha Ngan

How beautiful is that cover! James Patterson did the forward (big fan of his and his books) and premise intrigues me – Each year, eight beautiful girls are chosen as Paper Girls to serve the king. It’s the highest honor they could hope for…and the most demeaning. This year, there’s a ninth. And instead of paper, she’s made of fire.

#3 Haven Fall by Sara Holland

I’ve seen many book bloggers and bookstagram people post about this book and that plus the fact that it is YA Fantasy is enough to catch my attention. It sounds like a mix of mystery and fantasy, both of which I love.

#4 The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller

I loved Circe by Madeline Miller, so I wanted to read more of her works. And this one is about the Trojan War!!!

#5 Every Heart A Doorway by Seanan McGuire

This author came to my attention when Middlegame came out last year (I think) and I wanted to read more by him, so I found this series just exploring through his books. It’s about kids slipping into a fantasy world, the fantasy world throwing them back out, and what happens next.

Have you read any of these books? Or are any on your TBR?

  1. I’m not familiar with any of these but Girls of Paper and Fire sounds intriguing. I used to read Anne Rice way back in the day but then she got a bit too weird for me, LOL!

    1. I actually read the last book in Lestat‘s series (she did bring the series to an end!) but this one slipped through somehow. But, yeah, I fell behind at some point too.
