I really enjoyed both The House in the Cerulean Sea and Under the Whispering Door by T.J. Klune.

Unfortunately, I’ve never listened to an audio book. Friends keep recommending I do so…so maybe I’ll try that soon.

The only time I listen to audiobooks is when I’m on a road-trip. The last audio book I listen to was “Murder on the Orient Express”, on a cross country road-trip. It was good. Now I need to see the movie.

I just finished listening to I Kissed Shara Wheeler by Casey McQuiston! It was a very enjoyable listen

I recently listened to The Romantic Agenda by Claire Kann and loved it! Highly recommend if you’re looking for great asexual rep!

I can’t say that I’ve read any…I don’t look at the authors orientation before I decide to read a book…and I don’t think I’ve read any with LGBTQ+ charactes, but then that isn’t why I read a book

I have not read either of these, but for those who participate in the free sync audiobook program in the summers the two free books this week are both YA LGBTQ. The books are Fence: Striking Distance and Honestly Ben. You will need to download the Sora app in order to listen to the books, but there is no obligation to buy anything.

I’m listening to The Damning Stone by TJ Klune which is the 5th “Tales from Verania” book, warning these are not like his standalone and are very adult with lots of m/m sexual humor! But hilarious!

I’m not good with audiobooks…my mind wanders too much

I really enjoyed Danny Pellegrino’s “How Do I Un-remember This?: Unfortunately True Stories.” I didn’t know him or his podcast before listening to his audiobook, but I found it funny and heartfelt.

I loved Kal Penn’s “You Can’t Be Serious.” I appreciate his stories from childhood and I was impressed with his work in advancing Asian American/Pacific Islander representation and power in the entertainment industry.

Other LGBTQ+ audiobooks that I’d recommend (bc these aren’t just limited to Pride Month!):
The Guncle (Steven Rowley)
City of Girls (Elizabeth Gilbert)
The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo (Taylor Jenkins Reid)
The Death of Vivek Oji (Akwaeke Emezi)
The Black Flamingo (Dean Atta)
Felix Ever After (Kacen Calender)
All Boys Aren’t Blue (George Johnson)
Autoboyography (Christina Lauren)
