Book Releases: Twitter’s Anticipated Releases, Or A Look at What 2021 Has in Store

A few months back, I asked people on twitter what five LGBT releases they were most anticipating in 2021. Yes, I know, five was very harsh of me, especially since I couldn’t even keep myself to that few anyway, but hey. You do what you gotta do.

Anyway, I figured I’d turn those tweets into a post, to give you a little bit of a taster of 2021’s releases. Also feast your eyes on the gorgeousness of these covers so far! I cannot wait to see what else is to come.

Finally, a little key (although bearing in mind that it’s a little hard to confirm rep so far out!):

💗 = wlw rep
💙 = mlm rep
💜 = trans or nonbinary rep

Book Releases: September 2020

September is a monster month for releases (there are 100+ in this post alone, not to mention any that we might not know about just yet). And also one where, every time I felt I had the list down, I found yet another release. (Not that I’m really complaining, apart from having to edit and re-edit the damn thing so many times…)

So, get yourself a cuppa, and have a scroll!

As ever, you can find all our previous releases posts here and the rainbow emoji indicates an author who id’s as LGBT.

Book Releases: 2020 Sapphic Releases (July to December)

It’s August which means it’s time for PART TWO of 2020’s sapphic releases (part one here). These are all the sapphic releases that I know about from July to December this year (so, usual disclaimer of it not being on here generally means I don’t know about it. Sometimes means I completely forgot even if I did know).

As ever, 🌈 means the author identifies as LGBT. Apologies if I have screwed up a date somewhere — they’ve changed so often I know I haven’t kept track of them all.

For clarification: I have included in this list books where the sapphic character is either the main character/protagonist, has a POV, or is a major character who affects the plot.

So let’s go!

Book Releases: August 2020

The summer is halfway through, but that doesn’t mean the good times are ending! The days might be shorter and shorter now (in this hemisphere), but that only means your evenings are longer and longer, so you will have more time to read! And oh boy, is there a lot to read in August… Almost 100 books.

Like always, a rainbow emoji is there to tell you a book is ownvoices, in terms of LGBT rep. And if you need some more books, you can find all our previous releases posts here.

Most Anticipated 2020 Releases: July to December

Ignoring the fact that this post is a little delayed and a couple of the books may have been published (we did at least pick them earlier than this!), but today we have for you, our most anticipated releases of the second half of this year.

Not that either of us really read any that we selected for the first half.

But anyway. Check out what we picked, and let us know what you’re looking forward to most!

Book Releases: July-December 2020 Books With Bi Protagonists

A second part to the post I made at the beginning of the year, where I listed books with bi/pan main characters which were published between January and June (it’s here!). Now it’s time for the second half of the year.

Once again, I want to make some things clear:

1) I included only books that use the bi & pan labels or, in case of sff ones, that make it clear from context the characters are bi or pan. It’s not always clear-cut but I figured that if you’re looking for bi/pan rep, you’re looking for something concrete;

2) I did not include books which I wasn’t sure about, because I didn’t want to falsely advertise. If there’s anything I missed that you know for a fact features a bi or pan protag, please let me know!

Like always on this blog, the rainbow emoji indicates that the LGBT rep in a book is ownvoices, and just for fun, I also marked YA books with a ✌️ emoji. Please let me know if I missed or mislabeled something!

Book Releases: LGBT YA Books of July-December 2020

You already know about all the LGBT YA books that came out in the first half of the year (and if you don’t, check out my post about them!), so now it’s time for the second half. By now all of you probably know that I usually read YA books, but hopefully some of our readers share my preference and will find something to read among those 90 or so titles.

I tried my best, but of course, I’m only human so if you know of any books I missed, please let me know!

Like always on this blog, the rainbow emoji indicates that the LGBT rep in a book is ownvoices.

Book Releases: June 2020

It’s almost Pride!! Personally I can’t believe it’s already time for the best month in a year…

A lot of great books is coming out during Pride, but also it’s actually really amazing that Pride isn’t even the busiest month for LGBT releases this year. There are only around 80 and take it from me, guys, that’s number is far from being a record high.

So, without further ado, browse away!

(As always, the rainbow emoji indicates that the rep is ownvoices.)

Book Releases: 2020 Sapphic Releases (January to June)

Not to be bringing any sort of bitterness to this blog or anything, but there’s only so many times you can see “there’s no (good) f/f” as a tweet before you snap. So in the interests of not snapping, I compiled a list of all the sapphic releases I know about this year.

And I know a lot.

So this list is actually going to be split into two. The first, this post, is going to take us from January to June. The second will come in a few months time and focus on July to December. Actually, the post is based on a thread I did on twitter, so if you’re impatient, go check that out (though dates aren’t always correct, and it’s not the most up to date).

So do you want to read f/f books but you don’t want to look for them?

Well it’s your lucky day. I did the looking for you!

P.S. dates are correct to the best of my knowledge, but if I have missed a postponement somewhere, please let me know.
