So I made a twitter call for some reading material recommendations and I decided to compile a list here so I didn’t lose any. Keep in mind I have read none of these yet so these don’t constitute recs I’m making but a resource list. Most descriptions included are those I received. Also I’m only including the recommendations that center queer folks & their relationships, there were a few suggestions that were of series that had queer characters but the focus was not on a queer MC or queer relationship. Some sounded great but I’ve left them off this list.
I’m anxious to read more paranormal romance, especially ones that feature queer and/or poly relationships. Any recommendations?
