Nightrunner - Seregil and Alec

Book meme Part 4

Here's already another update to my book rec list, as I've been reading more lately. I hope it'll be helpful.

31. The Winnowing Flame by Jen Williams: heroic fantasy with some f/f and m/m. I'm impressed by how inventive this author is, and yet I've barely heard of her.

32. The Unspoken Name by AK Larkwood: f/f heroic fantasy with some m/m. This one is better known. It's fun that the protagonist is an orc girl and I love how extensive the worldbuilding is.

33. Strange Grace by Tessa Gratton: m/m/f heroic fantasy (YA). This book is like an invented fairy tale. The author excels at this genre and I can't wait to read more from her.

34. Raybearer by Jordan Ifueko: heroic fantasy with an asexual major character (YA). The characters are complex. I also love that the worldbuilding is mostly based on African cultures.

35. Green Creek by TJ Klune: m/m urban fantasy. I'm a big fan of werewolf series and I can say that this one will give you many feels.

36. Magic University by Cecilia Tan: m/f and m/m urban fantasy, as the protagonist is bisexual (erotica). I enjoy reading HP-like LGBT stories and this one is surprisingly my favourite, even though I'm very picky with erotica.

37. Euphoria Kids by Alison Evans: magical realism with a non-binary protagonist, a trans girl protagonist and a trans boy major character (YA). This is such a feel-good novel, with a nice focus on nature and art.

38. The Space Between Worlds by Micaiah Johnson: f/f science fiction. This may be my favourite sci-fi book ever. Not only is the plot fascinating, but it also denounces systemic racism.

39. Silk & Steel: A Queer Speculative Adventure Anthology: f/f SF/F anthology. The short stories focus on swordswoman/lady pairings, so this anthology is just my cup of tea, with a zest of humour.

40. Boyfriend Material by Alexis Hall: m/m romcom. This is the novel that got me into the fake-dating trope, which hadn't really interested me until then. Hilarious!
