If you liked my books (or even if you didn’t) and you enjoy LGBTQ books, YA Books, NA Books, MMRomance, paranormal romance, and similar books, here are some recommendations for new authors and books you may want to try. There are so many more books/authors I plan to list in the future, but these are the ones I have read so far that I truly adore and think you will, too!

An excellently written LGBTQ+ slice-of-life YA!
A fun, exciting LGBTQ+ urban fantasy/romance!
A fast-paced, captivating who-dun-it in a real-world gritty setting. Straight cop/Gay cop will they or won’t they vibes throughout. Loved every second of this audiobook!

I listened to the audiobook version – gritty noir detective story with a gay male protagonist by the father of gay detective/mystery books. What’s not to love?

THE DANCING TURTLE by A.J. Stiles is an indie book I learned about on Twitter through a passing interaction with the author. I’m so glad that I paid attention and read this book. There are M/M romance elements to this story–but it’s so much more than that. This was like reading Gilbert, mixed with Hemingway, mixed with Theroux. It’s rare that a day goes by that my mind doesn’t take me to this book, its characters, and its setting of Brazil.
