Lesbrary Links: Queer Bookish TikTok, Medieval Lesbian Lit, and Books like “The Half of It”

Lesbrary Links cover collage

I follow hundreds of queer book blogs to scout out the best sapphic book news and reviews! Many of them get posted on Tumblr and Twitter as I discover them, but my favourites get saved for these link compilations. Here are some of the posts I’ve found interesting in the last few weeks.

Last Night at the Telegraph Club by Malinda Lo  Honey Girl by Morgan Rogers  My Footprints by Bao Phi   It's Been a Pleasure, Noni Blake by Claire Christian  Bruised by Tanya Boteju

If you want to do some good in the world by getting LGBTQ picture books into pre-K to grade classrooms, support Pride and Less Prejudice! They use donations to send free age-appropriate book bundles to teachers who request them.

And for more ways to spend your money supporting queer books, LGBTQ Reads has a list of queer books available at various indie bookstores, complete with buy links! It couldn’t be easier to pick up some new to you authors while giving indie bookstores the support they need right now.

Looking to blow up your TBR pile/preorder list? Check out Sasha and Amber Read’s 2021 – The Year of Sapphic Excellency. There’s also Hsinju’s Lit Log’s 2021 Sapphic Releases from LGBTQ+ Indies for even more. If you can’t preorder all the titles you’re interested in, I recommend putting them in your Google Calendar and sending a reminder the day before. Then you can put it on hold at the library! That’s how I keep my library holds always maxed out.

Bestiary by K-Ming Chang  Burning Roses by S.L Huang  Burning Sugar by Cicely Belle Blain  Love After the End edited by Joshua Whitehead  Polar Vortex by Shani Mootoo

Of course, if you want to be aware of queer books coming even further out, there’s LGBTQ Reads’s August Book Deal Announcements post, which includes books that may not be out for years.

If you’d rather check out new releases that are coming out soon, try Autostraddle’s 65 Queer and Feminist Books Coming Your Way in Fall 2020.

Now that you’ve spent all your money ordering and preordering books, you can get instant gratification with Book Riot’s 12 of the Best Queer Webcomics You Can Read For Free. I used to be a big webcomics fan, so this is reminding me that I should jump back in!

Now I have to share the post that had me clicking the fastest: 15 TikTok Accounts That’ll Help You Dive Into LGBTQ+ Literature. I blame Pop Sugar for me now contemplating getting TikTok. No one told me there were queer book TikTokers!

YA Pride interviewed teenagers about how queer books have affected their lives at Teens Talk About LGBTQIAP+ YA. If you, like me, are over 25, you will feel old reading these. But either way, they are heartwarming, and include how some of these teens explored and discovered their identity through books.

The Secret Diaries of Miss Anne Lister edited by Helena Whitbread  I Kissed Alice by Anna Birch  You Should See Me in a Crown by Leah Johnson  The Midnight Lie by Marie Rutkoski  Shatter the Sky by Rebecca Kim Wells

Lambda Literary posted Queer Diaries Are Celebrations of a Secret History, which looks at the history of Lou Sullivan’s, Anne Lister’s, and Mary MacLane’s diaries–as well as a suggested queer diary reading list.

Reads Rainbow has a rapid-fire recommendation post of Sapphic YA Fantasy Recs, with the reasons you should read each pick.

The always-wonderful Casey wrote 8 Queer YA Novels With Coming of Age Hope to Relive Alice Wu’s “The Half of It”–and if you haven’t watched The Half of It on Netflix yet, run and do that first! I loved it. These books include: “falling in love through letter writing, figuring out your queer identity, keeping secrets, new friendships, small towns, and slowly getting to new your new girl crush.” Who can resist?

Cinderella is Dead by Kalynn Bayron  Zami by Audre Lorde  About Love by Anondra Williams  The Cancer Journals by Audre Lorde  Femme Like Her by Fiona Zedde

YA Pride’s The Path to Publication: Writing the Queer Black Girls of Cinderella Is Dead has Kalynn Bayron describe the obstacles to publishing Cinderella is Dead, including being told in writers’ groups that it wasn’t mainstream enough, while agents insisted the fairy tale retelling was overdone: “It’s not standard practice to reply to an agent at all, much less with the question, ‘How many of those reimaginings center BIPOC? And how many of them are also queer?'”

Fiona Zedde posted on Woman and Words Black LesBiQueer Books, Y’all!, highlighting some recent releases by Black queer women, including lots of romance and erotica recs!

Oprah Magazine has a list of 5 Best Audre Lorde Books to Read Right Now, because there’s never been a better time to read them. Speaking of Audre Lorde, Autostraddle’s Year of Our (Audre) Lorde continues with August’s New Spelling of My Name, which contemplates Zami and how it relates to Jehan’s own relationship with New York City.

The Sky is Blue with a Single Cloud by Kuniko Tsurita  Same-Sex Unions in Premodern Europe by John Boswell  In the Great Green Room by Amy Gary

The Atlantic’sThe Groundbreaking Female Artist Who Shaped Manga History, about Kuniko Tsurita, whose “Occupants” depicted a lesbian relationship, and who included gender noncomformity and queer coding in her work.

If you are a lesbian literature nerd like me, you will love this story that was posted on twitter: Resurfaced medieval tale has the most incredible queer plot twist. Explicitly queer medieval lit! With no real judgement of them!

Speaking of queer lit crit, did you know that one of the most popular board books of all time has a queer backstory? If you didn’t, you need to read Lambda Literary’s ‘Goodnight Moon’ and the Queer Love Story of the Great Green Room.

Lesbrary Links: Queer Scandinavian Horror, Black Lesbian Authors You Should Know, and Queer Witch Books

Lesbrary Links cover collage

I follow hundreds of queer book blogs to scout out the best sapphic book news and reviews! Many of them get posted on Tumblr and Twitter as I discover them, but my favourites get saved for these link compilations. Here are some of the posts I’ve found interesting in the last few weeks.

The Weight of the Stars by K Ancrum  The Salt Roads by Nalo Hopkinson   Once Ghosted, Twice Shy by Alyssa Cole   Unapologetic: A Black, Queer, and Feminist Mandate for Radical Movements by Charlene A. Carruthers   Cinderella is Dead by Kalynn Bayron

Over at Medium, Elizabeth Andre shared 79 Black Lesbian (and Bi, Queer, Trans, and Non-binary) Fiction Authors You Should Know, so there’s no excuse to not be reading Black queer books! If you’re a non-Black person, we should be reading both books that educate us about anti-Blackness as well as stories about Black joy. This list includes a lot of Romance authors, so that’s a great place to start!

Along the same lines, also check out Book Riot’s 20 Must-Read Black Authors of LGBTQ Books. I always look through these LGBTQ lists to make sure they’re not mostly m/m books, so rest assured there are lots of sapphic books to add to your TBR here.

If you’re looking for something a little more political, Electric Literature posted A Syllabus for the Uprising, which recommends books to get read for the queer Black revolution.

I’ve been mentioning this every round up, but that’s because you should be aware of Autostraddle’s Year of Our (Audre) Lorde, where Jehan reads Audre Lorde poems and connects them to what’s happening in the world right now. Last month was July Is a Black Unicorn.

Speaking of Black sapphic reads, Sometimes Leelynn Reads created The Cinderella is Dead Book Tag, so if you read and loved Cinderella is Dead and have a book blog/bookstagram account/booktuber channel, give this tag a try, and let me know what your answers are!

Girl, Serpent, Thorn by Melissa Bashardoust  Faith: Taking Flight by Julie Murphy  Patsy by Nicole Dennis-Benn  In the Dream House by Carmen Maria Machado  Each of Us a Desert by Mark Oshiro

The Lesbrary New Releases posts promote sapphic books of all kinds, but sometimes you’re looking for a particular identity. For the bi+ bibliophiles, check out reads rainbow’s Book Releases: July-December 2020 Books With Bi Protagonists.

And for pan page-turners, there’s also Book Riot’s 5 Books With Pansexual Main Characters.

Of course, I’m not forgetting the literary lesbians. Here’s Audible’s Best Lesbian Listens by Queer Authors.

Audiobooks are a great way to squeeze in reading during commutes or chores or just when the world is on fire and you can’t concentrate on the page. For more recs, try Book Riot’s 15 LGBTQ YA Audiobooks to Listen to in the Second Half of 2020.

Fair Play by Tove Jansson  Paradise Rot by Jenny Hval  Magic for Liars by Sarah Gailey  Search Results Web results Spellbook of the Lost and Found by Moira Fowley Doyle  Spring Fire by Vin Packer

Casey Stepaniuk is also providing awesome queer book recommendations, and her latest is at Autostraddle: 8 Great Queer Scandinavian Books, from Tender Novels to Supernatural Horror.

If you’re already eagerly anticipating fall, Book Riot’s 12 Queer Witch Books to Bring the Magic to Your TBR would make for excellent books to stock up on before those breezy Autumn nights.

Over at Electric Literature, Jessica Xing wrote about equating her queerness with monstrousness as a young closeted person, and how pulp helped with that, in Lesbian Pulp Novels Made Me Feel Normal.

OZY wrote about Nobuko Yoshiya, the first writer of Yuri, who is an amazing historical figure more people need to know about: The Daring Feminist Writer Who Inspired Manga.

And for another historical exploration, check out ‘Paris-Lesbos’: the Vibrant Lesbian Community Where Women in the 1920s Thrived to learn about the literary lesbian salons of Paris in the 1920s, and how queer authors flourished at that particular point in history.

Lesbrary Links: Queer Black Love in Literature, The Rise of the Queer Novella, and Censoring LGBTQ+ Kids’ Books

This has been a Pride like no other. Our usual celebrations were cancelled for COVID-19, and police brutality protests take us right back to where Pride began. LGBTQ people have Black trans people to thank for the LGBTQ rights movement, for Pride, and for so much that we take for granted, which is why it’s even more important for us to stand by them now. Police continue to target Black people of all genders, Black trans people continue to face so much violence, and the fight for rights is far from over. Black Lives Matter protests continue (even if they’re not getting as much news coverage), and there are many ways to support the movement. Check out the Black Lives Matter carrd for continually updated petitions to sign, places to donate, and ways to educate yourself. For white and white-passing people, I highly recommend reading Me and White Supremacy by Layla Saad. It guides you through digging into your own internal racism and the work to be done, and it’s really opened my eyes to how far I have to go, and how much anti-racism education is a lifelong process.

The world of LGBTQ books and publishing has began to reckon with its own racism, with Black Lives Matter protests bringing more attention to the inequalities that Black authors have been raising the alarm about for years. Check out the Lesbrary’s recent article Let’s Talk About Racism in Lesbian Publishing for a brief overview of the most recent iteration of the conversation.

Zami by Audre Lorde   The House You Pass On the Way by Jacqueline Woodson   Here Comes The Sun by Nicole Dennis-Benn   Full Disclosure by Camryn Garrett   Once Ghosted, Twice Shy by Alyssa Cole

  • I’m proud to see how many queer lit pages are using their platforms to advocate for Black Lives Matter–Pride was a riot against police violence, and it is imperative for LGBTQ people to stand together with Black Americans (and Black people around the world) fighting for their rights. Andi Marquette talked about this at Women and Words: Yeah…About that Whole Pride Thing…
  • One way you can support is with your wallet, and LGBTQ Reads posted Shop Queer Books from Black-Owned Bookstores to make it easy to support Black-owned bookstores while you’re building your Pride TBR.
  • Autostraddle has been celebrating the Year of Our (Audre) Lorde all 2020. Check out the latest addition: May’s Burst of Light.

Well, we are living in weird times. I hope that everyone is staying safe and healthy, and that you’re using this time inside to catch up on reading. If you have to be on the front lines, whether as a grocery worker or as a nurse or doctor, or anything else that is helping the world keep turning right now, I am grateful for you. Personally, I’m temporarily out of work, but I’m in Canada, so monetary help should be coming soon (fingers crossed). On to your regularly-scheduled links!

The Collected Poems of Audre Lorde  Fair Play by Tove Jansson  Laura Dean Keeps Breaking Up With Me by Mariko Tamaki  Juliet Takes a Breath by Gabby Rivera  Tomboy Survival Guide by Ivan Coyote

  • Autostraddle’s The Future We Lost in the Fire is one of my favourite articles I’ve read in recent memory: it explores the Nazi burning of the Magnus Hirschfeld library, and the forgotten queer history of Berlin.
  • Also on Autostraddle, they are continuing their Year of Our (Audre) Lorde, reflecting on Lorde’s ongoing legacy and how it relates to our current struggles, with March’s Poetry Is Not a Luxury.
  • The New Yorker’s Inside Tove Jansson’s Private Universe is a thoughtful biography of Tove Jansson, which has reminded me that I really want to pick up some full-length biographies of her, because she seems like such an interesting character.
  • Book Riot’s Queer Representation in Books: Give Me All of It, Every Kind is a personal essay about the importance of a diversity of queer representations, including different identities, genres, and tones.

Check out my master list of more than 100 bi and lesbian books that I (Danika) have read and loved! I have recently updated with some of my recent reads, including an awesome manga and a memorable YA book. They all have links to my full review.

You can also check out the Lesbrary Amazon Page, which has the same recommendations, but you can browse by cover, and each book has a tweet-length recommendation.

Link Round Up: Comics, Best of the Decade, and New Releases

Lesbrary Links collage

If you’re a close reader of the Lesbrary, you might have noticed a lack of Link Round Ups in the past few months. That’s a result of me being overwhelmed by practicum (I survived! I’m a teacher now!), but I’m also using it as an opportunity to experiment a little bit. I’ve still been compiling interesting links, but I’ve shared most of them on tumblr and twitter. For this post, I’ve saved up what I think are the most useful links I’ve come across in the last few months.

Cosmoknights by Hannah Templer  Kim Reaper Vol. 1: Grim Beginnings cover  Stage Dreams by Melanie Gillman  Heathen Volume 1 by Natasha Alterici   Girl Town by Carolyn Nowak

Some interesting comics content to check out:

Her Body and Other Parties Carmen Maria Machado cover   Mooncakes by Wendy Xu and Suzanne Walker   Cantoras by Carolina de Robertis   The Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon   Once Ghosted, Twice Shy by Alyssa Cole

The end of the year (and decade!) brought with it a deluge of lists. Here are some of my favourites:

Girls of Storm and Shadow by Natasha Ngan  Practically Ever After by Isabel Bandeira  Floodtide by Heather Rose Jones  Baudelaire Fractal by Lisa Robertson  Nottingham by Anna Burke

And as for the present–or near-past–here are some lists of new releases since the last round up:

Spell Hacker by MK England    In the Dream House by Carmen Maria Machado  The Life and Times of Butch Dykes by Eloisa Aquino  A Tropical Fish Yearns for Snow by Makoto Hagino

The recent releases I’m excited about:

The rest of the links had to do with 2020 new releases, so they got their own post here!
