01

One Last Stop by Casey McQuiston

I am so glad this was my first read of the year. It immediately became one of my favorite books and since it's not out until June I won't say too much. But if I was concerned the author couldn't top RWRB, I was wrong. A must-read. 

 

02

Once Upon A Princess by Clare Lydon & Harper Bliss

This book was recommended to me and I really enjoyed it. Takes the royal hiding amongst the common folk trope but turns it into a wlw story. I'll be reading more from these authors.  

 

03

House in the Cerulean Sea by TJ Klune

Such a fond, soft, wonderfully gay book filled with humor that felt like a mix of Good Omens and Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy. 
 

04

Spoiler Alert by Olivia Dade

Such a great romcom, with a plus-size protagonist that combines fandom and fan fic with a love story. Another must-read. 

05

Die volume 3 by Kieron Gillen and Stephanie Hans

Another great volume in this series. I'd say we're about past the halfway mark of the narrative so I'm interested to see where the rest of the story goes. 

06

Blessed Monsters by Emily A. Duncan

This. BOOK. What a great way to end a series. It was by turns distressing, hilarious, terrifying, and heartwarming. It broke my heart and I loved it. 

07

A Touch of Darkness by Scarlett St. Clair

I had to read it because everyone on TikTok was talking about it. It is definitely as advertised: a spicy retelling of Hades and Persephone. 

08

A Court of Silver Flames by Sarah J. Maas

I went into this book not too excited, because Nesta was never my favorite character. But this book brings her to life and deals with her past and trauma in a very good way. This series isn't even pretending to be YA anymore and is possibly the spiciest of the entire series. Lots of Cassian too, so that helps. 

09

An Offer From a Gentleman by Julia Quinn

I started reading the Bridgerton books last year right before the series came out. This one is a Cinderella retelling and I read it in a day. 

10

Down Comes The Night by Allison Saft

This book has all my favorite things: a chaotic bisexual main character, enemies to lovers, a mysterious castle inhabited by a reclusive lord, a brooding love interest, there's only one bed (!!!), and an interesting magic system. 

11

Tell No Tales by Sam Maggs and Kendra Wells

A fun middle grade romp about the adventures of historical pirate Anne Bonny. Very inclusive and adventurous. Has a bibliography in the back for more reading, if desired. Gotta love graphic novels with bibliographies. 

12

The Queer Principles of Kit Webb by Cat Sebastian

While I've read Cat Sebastian's queer historical romance before, this is her first rom  com. I loved it. It was a great blend of humor, romance, and intrigue. 

13

The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater *Reread*

I love this series, so I decided to revisit it by listening to the audio. I like it so far and the narrator really brings all the characters to life. I love those stupid boys. 

14

Lost in the Never Woods by Aiden Thomas

Wendy and her family are still reeling rom an incident 5 years ago where she and her brothers disappeared. She was the only one to return. A dark YA Peter Pan retelling that had me all up in my feels.
