In these weird times, all of us could use something nice to read. Especially if wanting to read books means pre-ordering them and helping out authors who are debuting in upcoming months. And hey!, if you can afford it, consider using an indie bookstore for all your orders! Which should be plenty, given how many great books are coming out next month, just saying.
So, without further ado, here are 85 (!) LGBT April releases!
(As always, the rainbow emoji indicates that the rep is ownvoices.)

It’s yet another round-up post! But this time it’s books by authors based in the UK and Ireland (I say “based in”, some may still be published by American publishers, but most not). Because this is one of many areas overlooked in favour of US output.
So here are 53 releases from this side of the pond that you can look forward to!

If you’re looking for books with bisexual and/or pansexual characters, you’re in luck. Here’s a list of all books coming out in January-June 2020 that fit that description.
Finding specific rep in upcoming books isn’t always easy, so I want to make some things clear before we start:
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!
I’ll be also marking YA books with a ✌️ emoji, if that’s something that you’re interested in. And, as always, a 🌈 emoji indicates an ownvoices book.
(You might also be interested in these posts about 2020 YA releases & 2020 releases with non-cis characters.)

For March’s read, you voted we pick sci-fi. So the chances of Anna not reading a third book club book in a row have immediately skyrocketed.
We ended up picking a very recent release from an author we have both liked the short stories of for March’s read. Hopefully, that means we’ll both read the book for the first time in about 3 months.
So take a look to see what we selected.

March brings us another 81 releases – we are really being spoiled this year, aren’t we – featuring some of mine and Anna’s most anticipated. And, like last month, they’re all in one place!
You can find all our previous releases posts here. Any errors in rep are mine, etc, etc.

Today, I have for you a massive rec list of books by and about QPOC (and Latinx authors/characters). There are fifty books on here – though that isn’t the sum total of those I know, so if your favourite isn’t here, it’s simply because I couldn’t fit it.
It’s gonna go like this: I’ve split this post into contemporary, historical, science fiction or dystopia, and fantasy sections. In each section, half the books have been released, half are upcoming (barring sci fi, where I could only find 4 upcoming releases).

We decided to change things up a little bit! And by that I mean we decided that from now on we will be putting all monthly releases in one post! (With a different format, too.)
So now you’re about to see around 90 LGBT books coming out this February. I hope you’re ready!
(The rainbow emoji next to a specific rep in a book means it’s ownvoices.)

At the beginning of December, I decided (foolishly) to aim to have read 400 books in 2019 (being, at the time, only on about 325). I made it, exhaustedly sure, but I made it. And I did so by reading a lot of novellas on tor.com.
So, obviously, armed with that knowledge, I had to make a rec list. There are only my favourite 10 on here, but I also made a longer thread on twitter, with every single one I read over that time.

I told you about all the YA upcoming books of the first half of the year & today I’m here to tell you about all the 2020 books with non-cis protagonists. As the title implies, this list is compiled of books with main characters who are trans or non-binary, or both, or genderfluid… Everyone who is not cis.
I want to make three things clear:
1) this is a list of all the books I know of at the moment which is not to say it’s a list of all the books in existence;
2) I decided to include love interests as well, since they usually play a pretty major role in the story, but not other side characters;
3) I’m marking as ownvoices (with a 🌈 emoji) books written by authors whose gender identity matches the mc’s – please correct me, if I got something wrong.

Not that I completely forgot I had to do this post, but I maybe completely forgot I had to do this post. But no matter! I’m just in time.
The first part of January brought us an influx of amazing releases (check them out here), and the second part continues with that. I know I said that there were 45 books out this month, but I have since found several more and that number is closer to 70 now (and, of course, we missed the release date of a few, so get ready for a massive post at the end of the year again).
But anyway, take a peek at what’s in store!
And as ever, all our previous posts are here.
