The color purple by Alice Walker
A powerful cultural touchstone of modern American literature, The Color Purple depicts the lives of African American women in early twentieth-century rural Georgia. Separated as girls, sisters Celie and Nettie sustain their loyalty to and hope in each other across time, distance and silence. Through a series of letters spanning twenty years, first from Celie to God, then the sisters to each other despite the unknown, the novel draws readers into its rich and memorable portrayals of Celie, Nettie, Shug Avery and Sofia and their experience. The Color Purple broke the silence around domestic and sexual abuse, narrating the lives of women through their pain and struggle, companionship and growth, resilience and bravery. Deeply compassionate and beautifully imagined, Alice Walker's epic carries readers on a spirit-affirming journey towards redemption and love.

human enough by E.S. Yu
Noah Lau didn’t expect to end up imprisoned in the home of the vampire he was supposed to kill when he joined the Vampire Hunters Association to seek justice for the death of his parents, and he definitely wasn’t planning on falling in love with that same vampire who trapped him either.

Rep: asexual, gay, pansexual, mlm If you like stories with vampire love interests then this is definitely for you. Everything about the book is magical, it’s got all the right elements to pull you in, and can be quite enjoyable once you actually dive into it. Very like, mysterious, in a way. I love that there is a vampire as the love interest, and this is like such a good representation if like that’s what you're into.

Her royal highness by Rachel Hawkins
Millie can't believe her luck when she's accepted into one of the world's most exclusive schools, located in the rolling highlands of Scotland. The only problem: Mille's roommate Flora is a total princess. She's also an actual princess. Of Scotland. At first, the girls can barely stand each other--Flora is both high-class and high-key--but before Millie knows it, she has another sort-of-best-friend/sort-of-girlfriend. Even though Princess Flora could be a new chapter in her love life, Millie knows the chances of happily ever afters are slim . . .

Rep: bisexual, lesbian, wlw relationship Slight enemies-to-lovers at the beginning, this book is a very light and cute read with quite a few cliche situations but very enjoyable. Would totally recommend it for the summer.
Loveless by Alice Oseman
As she starts university with her best friends, Pip and Jason, in a whole new town far from home, Georgia’s ready to find romance, and with her outgoing roommate on her side and a place in the Shakespeare Society, her ‘teenage dream’ is in sight. Georgia ends up in her own comedy of errors, and she starts to question why love seems so easy for other people but not for her. With new terms thrown at her – asexual, aromantic – Georgia is more uncertain about her feelings than ever.

Rep: asexual-aromantic mc, lesbian, bisexual, gay, non-binary This book has became one of my favorite books very recently; I related a lot to what Georgia was going through. A few of the scenes made me very emotional. It’s a really feel-good book which could almost look like a movie at the end with running desperately to find someone and grand declarations of love. Definitely recommend it.
