I came up with a total of 50 books for this, so instead of breaking it down for just 1 post i’ve decided to do a series of 5 posts for it! Because why not.

My Life as a White Trash Zombie by Diana Rowland

An adult zombie urban fantasy novel. I’ve read it twice. The second time was by listening to it on audio in an attempt to continue the series and I read the second one and well … i’m bad at continuing series. I want to fix that, but i’ve loved the first two books! I got them both on audio now so when I have the time to reread I can listen to them before continuing on. I own the whole series physically. There are 6 books.

Queens of Geek by Jen Wilde

Contemporary YA with an Asian Austrailian bisexual MC and an MC that is autistic, has anxiety and is fat (and ok with that!). I related SO HARD to Taylor, the autistic/anxiety/fat MC, because anxiety and I read it when I didn’t know i’m autistic. This is one of the books that eventually lead me on my journey to realizing I am! I’m also bisexual so that rep was awesome. Involves a con like comic con.

Cum For Bigfoot: Volume One by Virginia Wade

Yes. I read this. I have all 3 volumes. I have only read the first one because I was feeling awkward and ashamed trying to talk about it even though I said i’d finish the series years go. I plan to reread the first volume and finish the damn series. Also, fuck shame. I liked this ok? It’s well written actually. It’s has a simple plot but it does have a plot and I like monster erotica. I need to learn to say that with pride. I know i’m not alone. I see many other monster erotica lovers places like Twitter. Where my monster erotica lovers at? Monsters need love to.

A Secret Life: Surviving A Rare Congenital Condition by Greg Ryan

The rare congenital condition, is imperforate anus. Me and Greg were both born without an anus. Yes, it’s real. It happens. And we have lifelong issues because of it. One in 5,000 babies are born with IA (Imperforate Anus). This is his autobiography, which I related to a lot.

To Be Devoured by Sara Tantlinger

Queer. Horror. I don’t know what else to say. It’s fucking creepy! Also, I heard it’s going out of print in July and I had read it via KU so when I heard I snatched up a physical copy!

Felix Ever After by Kacen Callender

This book has meant THE WORLD to me! The MC is black, queer and trans. He feels like too much, which I can relate to as physically disabled, neurodivergent, queer and trans. And he realizes he’s a demiboy, LIKE ME! He’s a bisexual trans demiboy like me. With the word demiboy ON. THE. PAGE. The only time i’ve seen it so far! Hopefully not the last. I have a long review Here if you wanna check it out!

1984 by George Orwell

Terrifying. Awesome book. Wish everyone would read it. Wish people would quit treating it as an instruction manual. It was meant to be a warning, not an instruction manual!

Homegoing by Yaa Gyasi

Historical Fiction. Each chapter is told from a different person’s pov, going from one descendant to the next, all connected, over generations, like a family tree that tells their stories. There is so much to learn from this book, yes it’s fictional but still teaches so much and tugs at the heart (and tears).

Masquerade by Parker Lee

Queerness and poetry. This book has quite a range imo. I felt these poems deep in my soul. The author is nonbinary (as am I) and that’s explored but so are other things. Some of them I literally went “I know this isn’t about autism but my nonbinary and autistic ass felt that in both ways”. I think a lot of people could relate to at least some of it. There’s also themes of abandonment and more. And it’s so very accessible.

Corduroy by Don Freeman

I loved this book as a kid and still loved it upon adult reread. It’s so sweet!

Yes, i’m aware i’m all over the place in what I read and love, and I love it that way!
