Hi! Do you know any good wlw books that doesn’t center around romance? It doesn’t have to have a happy ending. Thanks!

Hi. I’m leading a session at a conference for lgbt college students that’s going to be about how fiction writing can be a way to process our political and social climate. I wanted to use excerpts from current stories (primarily novels but song lyrics, poems, etc could work, too) as prompts for participants. I’m looking for recommendations. To give you an idea one book I’m planning on using is Santa Olivia by Jacqueline Carey. If you know of a book that’s good but straight I’d consider

My top recommendation would be Juliet Takes a Breath by Gabby Rivera. It’s about a Latina lesbian from the Bronx who does a summer internship in Portland and it’s a great critique of white feminism and white queer politics, and developing an identity as a queer woman of color.

Girl Mans Up by M.E. Girard is about a butch lesbian in Toronto dealing with friends and family who can’t understand how she can be a masculine girl.

This is How It Always Is by Laurie Frankel is about a family raising 5 boys and their youngest child, a transgender girl. 

Adaptation and Inheritance by Malinda Lo is a sci fi duology with a bi girl protagonist that has an amazing plot and touches on issues of racism, biphobia, and polyamory.

Others… The Miseducation of Cameron Post. Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe. Georgia Peaches and Other Forbidden Fruit.

Good luck!

“Dahlia Adler: You’re definitely one of YA’s most prolific genre jumpers, debuting in fantasy and then moving on to sci-fi, then to a psychological thriller, and next up with historical! What genre(s) do you most see yourself continuing to write in, and why?
Malinda Lo: Lesbians. Is that a genre? Because I want to see queer women in every single genre there is.”

“To the boys who get called girls,
the girls who get called boys,
and those who live outside these words.
To those called names,
and those searching for names of their own.
To those who live on the edges,
and in the spaces in between.
I wish for you every light in the sky.”

When The Moon Was Ours by Anna-Marie McLemore

“…both he and she were creek beds, quiet when they were full and quiet when they were dry. But when they were half-full, wearing a coat of shallow water, the current bumped over the rocks and valleys in the creek beds, wearing down the earth. Giving someone else a little of who they were hurt more than giving up none or all of it.”
