T10T: Books I Rarely Talk About

 I guess quarantine has made me a regular T10Ter. I also want to set up some summer posts in advance since my housing situation is uncertain, so I might not be able to post regularly starting sometime in May or late April. All books have links to indiebound, where you can order your favourite books online from your closest indie bookshop! T10T is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.

Sappho

This lesbian poet of ancient Greece- do you really need any more? We get the term “sapphic” from her name.

The Black Tides Of Heaven

This was one of Enby Book Club’s picks, and though I loved it, it’s a difficult book to explain. This is set in a chinese inspired fantasy world where children choose their gender and the twins overthrow their mother.

Carmilla

I may have talked about this once or twice, but it’s been a while. Carmilla is the lesbian vampire classic that came before Dracula and was adapted into a youtube series with the best people.

Everything Leads To You

This is set in LA, following two girls: one who’s a budding set designer and the unknown daughter of a recently dead cowboy actor. it’s a slow burn sapphic romance. Very slow burn.

Heavy Vinyl

This follows a mostly lesbian girl gang that run a record store by day and fight crime by night.

Dear Evan Hansen

This is a soul-destroying novel adaptation of a play. TW: Suicide 

The Girl With All The Gifts

The zombie apocalypse- with the zombies in school. There’s a sequel with a boy with asperger’s, although there is a bury the gays.

The Picture Of Dorian Gray

This is gay. Oscar Wilde, need I say it, was gay.

And Then There Were None

This is not gay! *gasp* This is my favourite Agatha Christie following a series of deaths/ murders on an island.

Vic

Vicious

The villains are heroes! What is morality! People with NDEs get superpowers- and it makes former besties Victor and Eli mortal enemies after it permanently kills the girl Vicor and Eli both love. Victor is on outside record as being asexual.

This was a really gay list! What does your list look like? What do you think of these books?

  1. I love The Black Tides of Heaven/the Tensorate series a lot too. It really does have a complex world and unusual structure and plot. And Everything Leads to You was such a cute read.
    Great list! The really gay ones are always the best.
