Here are 5 queer YA books to make you feel yourself

Jun 29, 2021 0 comments


Over the years, young-adult books have become increasingly popular not only for teens but also for readers from every generation. From Harry Potter, Hunger Games, Twilight, The Fault in Our Stars, and the Percy Jackson series, these modern classics of love, adventure, and friendship have captured the imagination of many. 

As we move towards equality, love, and understanding, more and more books are now featuring stories and journeys from LGBTQIA+ individuals that resonate with the struggles and triumphs of the community. Moreover,  it also helps young queer readers to learn more about themselves through reading these stories. 

With that, here's a list of queer YA novels to inspire you to be true to who you are this #PrideMonth.

Autoboyography

Perfect for those who find religion's discussion of sexuality fascinating.

Perfect for those who enjoy theater, mystery, and tragedy.

Her Royal Highness




















After being cheated on by her sort-of-best friend/sort-of-girlfriend, Millie Quint moves from Houston, to study in a gorgeous boarding school in Scotland.

But can these two people who barely stand each other find love in each others' arms? Perfect for those who like buddy films, stories about royalty, and moving on from past relationships.
