About Annie on my Mind:
One of the most frequently challenged books in the early to mid-1990s, Annie on my Mind is the first young adult novel to positively showcase a same-sex relationship. This book was banned, burnt, and resulted in a U.S federal court case.

About Tropic of Cancer:
Tropic of Cancer has been described as “notorious for its candid sexuality”. The book’s jacket was wrapped with a warning that read, “NOT TO BE IMPORTED INTO THE UNITED STATES OR GREAT BRITAIN.” Even in liberal Paris, bookstores sold the novel under the counter; but as word spread, copies were bought by American tourists and smuggled home disguised under dust jackets from other books.

Day 12 for #riotgrams is Queer reads!❤️🧡💛💚💙💜 Full disclosure: I haven’t started Georgia Peaches & Other Forbidden Fruit yet but I know for a fact that it’s about lesbians in the south.

I ordered "Annie on my mind" from Amazon a few days ago and received it today,am so happy,I just can't wait to read it because I have been waiting to read this book since a very long time😍
This groundbreaking book is the story of two teenage girls whose friendship blossoms into love and who, despite pressures from family and school that threaten their relationship, promise to be true to each other and their feelings. The book has been banned from many school libraries and publicly burned in Kansas City.
Of the author and the book, the Margaret A. Edwards Award committee said, “Using a fluid, readable style, Garden opens a window through which readers can find courage to be true to themselves.” #annieonmymind #nancygarden #lesbiannovel #lesbianbook #lesbianliterature #lgbtbooks #lgbtliterature #novel #lesbianromance

QOTD: Give me some LGBTQIA+ book recs! I’m going to try reading exclusively books with queer rep this month, and I would love to add your faves to my tbr!
.
.

HAPPY PRIDE MONTH Y’ALL🏳️‍🌈
.

This month I’ll be focusing on books with LGBTQIA+ authors and books that feature queer characters. I’ll also be featuring some of my other favorite bits of queer media (podcasts, tv shows, etc.) on my stories and in my captions, so stay tuned! Representation in media, especially literature, is so important, and it makes my heart happy to see how many bookstagrammers are focusing on and reading LGBTQIA+ books this month!
.

I’m currently listening to Autoboyography, and it’s so bittersweet. I love Tanner and the beautifully done bi rep, but I am in so much pain rn😭 I’m also about to start reading Adam Silvera’s More Happy Than Not, and, if it’s anything like History is all Left Me, I’ll be in tears by the second page..🙃😭

I can't wait to get to read this
#lgbtpride #lesbian #20gayteen #annieonmymind

This is one of the most beautiful books that I've ever read. I read it in one day. When I picked it up, I didn't initially realize that I was picking up a classic published more than twenty years ago. The experiences of the leading characters in this book are so genuine, and the romance so organic. Many of my favourite books are the ones in which I recognize parts of myself, and this is one of those books.

Have you ever felt like this? This book is an absolute gem and I love this quote to bits, especially recently that I've discovered this feeling for myself.
