A lovely bi-for-bi romance about two oddballs with social anxiety finding each other and making a little found family for themselves, their queer (ace and gay, respectively) best friends, a couple dogs, and a quirky little French kid. Just so lovely, there's no other way to describe it. #QueerBooks #LGBTQBooks #LGBTQ #BisexualBooks #Romantsy

My best queer books of the year is up today on Autostraddle dot com! This list is truly a labour of love and a very difficult thing to put together because there is so much abundance in queer lit today. Did your favourite queer books of the year make the list? Let me know! #QueerBooks #LGBTQBooks #LGBTQ #TransBooks #BisexualBooks https://www.autostraddle.com/92-of-the-best-queer-books-of-2022/

Soubhiville Wow, what a list! I‘m embarrassed how few of these I‘ve read, but now my TBR is exploding! I‘ve bookmarked this so I can come back to it. 📚📚📚😁 2mo
CaseyTheCanadianLesbrarian @Soubhiville thanks! And no need to be embarrassed, the only embarrassment is the embarrassment of riches that is queer books today. There are so many to choose from! 2mo
Soubhiville It‘s true! My StoryGraph says I read 49 queer books this year. I remember when I was younger and it was a challenge to find enough of them, as you said. So I‘m thrilled to be able to say LGBTQIA in general is my most read genre this year! 2mo

CaseyTheCanadianLesbrarian @batsy yay, I hope you find some gems 2mo

Kiss Her Once for Me | Alison Cochrun

"A visit from Andrew Kim-Prescott is usually a highlight in my sad-hermit life, but this is just the flammable tinsel on the dried-out Charlie Brown Christmas tree of my day." ?

I love a good thematically on brand metaphor.

I may still be in the middle of a Halloweeny gothic science fiction book (Leech -- very good but a bit dense) but does that mean I can't also start a Christmas rom com? I think not. 🏳️‍🌈👭🎄

Clare-Dragonfly In fact, I think that‘s a great time! I enjoy having multiple reads with very different tones and styles. 3mo
CaseyTheCanadianLesbrarian @Clare-Dragonfly yeah me too! Then you have a book for every mood. 3mo

This was fucking weird and dark! Quite short, just like a little snapshot of some people who call each other friends but seem to hate each other staying in a haunted Heian mansion in Japan and things going very wrong very quick. Very meta in terms of its use of the horror genre. Sharp writing, particularly the creepy, gross, and/or macabre metaphors, like when Khaw describes someone's words hanging out of their mouth like a body on a noose.

Delightful and sinfully sexy! It's a romance between a 38-year-old, Erin, and a 22-year-old college senior Cassie ... who is good friends with Erin's 18-year-old kid. It's as sweet as it is dirty, very light and fun, an "idiots to lovers" story where they don't realize how much they like each other. I was pleasantly surprised at how Wilsner handled the reveal with the kid/best friend. It was tense waiting to see how and when she would find out!

Sirens and Muses: A Novel | Antonia Angress

Unfortunately half of these characters (the women) compelled me and the other half (the men) didn't. These days an author would have to do some pretty extraordinary character work to make me care about cishet white men. This is despite lovely, smart writing, especially about making art and the art world. I was also interested in Angress's characterization of the different desires for genders that Louisa and Karina felt as bi women. 🤷‍♀️

This wasn't quite the romance for me, but I think overall it did what it set out to do very well. It's about a celebrity chef and her restaurant owner, both of whom are already pining for each other when the book begins. This romance set up doesn't interest me much. But the chef, Sophie, is a newly out bi woman at age 30 and the depiction of her later in life coming out and encountering biphobia, was excellent. Also steamy sapphic sex scenes!

Delightful doesn't even begin to describe this incredibly fun but also thoughtful bi-for-bi historical romance. A soft thief with a heart of gold and a penchant for crime a la Robin Hood and for brusque woman who order him around? A prickly determined woman new to crime but fiercely committed to protecting those she loves? A couple who falls in live via letters which start out as notes between enemies? Queer found family of criminals? I love it!

Nutmegnc Can‘t wait to read it!! 8mo
