      1. In the beginning I wasn’t sure. It was very good, but I could easily put it down if you know what I mean. But at a certain point – around 40% I think it was – I was like, now I am really invested and I will finish this in 24h. And I did. So I hope you will like it as well, there is a lot of hype around it but it is very imaginative.

  1. I’ve read three of these. I thought ‘The Black Flamingo’ was extremely over-rated. ‘We Are Okay’ was just okay, and ‘The Prince and the Dressmaker’ was really cute (I’m not sure it counts as GLBTQ+ though, the male character enjoys cross-dressing but I don’t think he was gay.) A lot of these other books are on my ‘tbr’ list but I’ve seriously overextended myself, I don’t think I’ll have finished half the books on my list by the time I’m dead, probably. 😛

  2. Great list! I loved Gideon the Ninth and I got round to I Wish You All the Best recently after it sitting on m shelf for ages (oops… but it has a beautiful cover so it’s all good). But it was so worth it. Like how you said, it was such a gorgeous book, all about finding light in the darkness. I loved Ben’s narrative aswell. Thanks for inspiring me! Here was my review of it: 🙂 https://hundredsandthousandsofbooks.blog/2020/09/26/everyone-should-read-i-wish-you-all-the-best/

  3. This is such a great idea!! There are so many queer books I want to read, especially Felix ever after. Would it be okay if I used the whole ‘queer books on my radar’ for one of my posts? I’ll obviously give you credit and link this post in my website 🙂
