Top Ten Tuesday: Queer Books for a Vacation

The Prompt

This week’s prompt is about Books I’ve read while on vacation. Let’s see if I’m able to remember which ones I’ve actually read while I was escaping everyday life.

About Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

Queer Books to read on Vacation

I might shock you with this confession, but I haven’t read a lot while on a (real) vacation.

Mostly because I haven’t had a relaxing vacation for years. Over a decade I think. Most of my time off – when I’m not staying home which doesn’t really feel like a vacation, you know? – I either spend at my partner’s or go hiking with her. That doesn’t really lead to a lot or any reading time. But I do read while being on the train on my way to said vacation or back home.

So maybe I should have called this one “Queer Books to read on public transportation“? Just kidding.

Anyway, these queer books have followed me on vacation:

  • A Hymn in the Silence by Kelley York and Rowan Altwood
    I’m currently re-reading this historical paranormal romance so expect a review soon-ish!
  • Outsider by Olivia Cunning
    A polyam rockstar romance I haven’t read in ages… I feel like I should re-read the Exodus End series soon. There is a review for it though.
  • Cut & Run by Madeleine Urban and Abigail Roux
    Queer work partners, especially in any kind of law enforcement have a special place in my heart.
  • Catch a Ghost by S.E. Jakes
    Remember those queer agents/work partners from above? Here’s another one, but this one I have reviewed on my blog.
  • Every Day by David Levithan
    Queer Young Adult fiction could make a thought-provoking read for school, too. Read my review here.
  • Hunter of Demons by Jordan L. Hawk
    This paranormal romance I actually bought with a train ride in mind. I really need to read the rest of this series but there’s a review for book one on The Queer Bookish.
  • Hell & High Water by Charlie Cochet
    Same thing here: Bought this paranormal romance to be read on a train ride especially and I also need to finish the rest of the series. Book one at least I’ve already reviewed.
  • The Foxhole Court by Nora Sakavic
    I didn’t read this contemporary romance on vacation, but I re-read it while being on the train to my partner’s who recommended it to me way back when. I’ve already published my review of it.

Which books have you enjoyed while being on vacation? Do you tend to read something you know you’ll enjoy (a favourite, author, a book you already read etc.) or are you open to experiments?
