Anita Kelly recommends
Never Been Kissed (2022)
(Boy Meets Boy, book 1)
Timothy Janovsky
"A tribute to movies, drive-ins, and figuring out who you truly are, NEVER BEEN KISSED is a pitch-perfect second-chance summer romance. Watching Wren and Derick navigate their past and their present while fighting for their community and what they believe in will make you want to cheer. This book made my queer heart so very full and deeply happy: everything a rom-com should be."
Bend Toward the Sun (2022)
Jen Devon
"Sweeping and lush, Bend Toward the Sun is one of my favorite kinds of books, where the setting is just as integral to the story as the main characters. Getting to know the warm, lovable Brady family feels like a hug, and I am thoroughly annoyed I can't visit their vineyard in real life. Harry and Rowen's road to happily-ever-after as they each battle their own demons is deeply emotional and hard-won."
Mistakes Were Made (2022)
Meryl Wilsner
"In Mistakes Were Made, Wilsner somehow deftly depicts both the messy, exuberant confusion of college life and the messy, bewildering confusion of middle age. Cassie and Erin's journey is taboo and sexy, but ultimately, it is deeply sweet: a story of how love can, and should, transcend societal expectations."
Season of Love (2022)
Helena Greer
"One of the most unique and uniquely queer things I've ever read, SEASON OF LOVE is more a place than a book: Carrigan's Christmasland's heart beats just as strongly in these pages as all of its loving, messy, large cast of characters, all of whom are looking for home in their own ways, even if they're already there. By the last page, readers will feel as if they're part of this special family, too."
Kiss Her Once for Me (2022)
Alison Cochrun
"Cochrun's writing is by turns whip-smart, hilarious, and deeply vulnerable. Kiss Her Once For Me is both a queer celebration and subversion of romance tropes, along with being a love letter to Portland and an incisive exploration of family, art, and failure. Jack and Elle's swooningly romantic love story will make even the most cynical among us believe in the magic of snow days."
