October 25, 2022

Fall is upon us once again, and if the season has you wanting to curl up under a blanket with a pumpkin spice latte and a good book, Tagg has you covered. No matter your reading taste, there’s a queer read with your name on it this fall!


1. For True Romantics

Tell Me Everything by Laura Kay

Everyone loves a romcom and if you’re after a meet-cute to sweep you off your feet look no further than Tell Me Everything. Laura Kay’s second novel follows therapist Natasha as she adapts to life after splitting from her long-term partner, Georgia. With a host of fun and flighty characters including Natasha’s new love interest Margot, this warm and witty novel has a whole lot of heart. It’s easy to see why Kay is dubbed “the queen of messy lesbians.”


2. For a Twisty Thriller

Reader, I Murdered Him by Betsy Cornwell, Hardcover | Barnes & Noble®

New York Times best-seller Betsy Cornwell is back this fall with a feminist historical thriller which promises to push all the right buttons. In Reader, I Murdered Him, queer teenager Adele takes it upon herself to give the abusive men of Victorian England what they deserve with the help of a fellow vigilante. This dark sapphic novel is already causing a stir with early readers ahead of its release on November 15.


3. For Fans of Graphic Novels Doughnuts and Doom eBook : Lőrinczi, Balázs, Lőrinczi, Balázs: Kindle Store

The success of Alice Oseman’s Heartstopper series brought new attention to queer graphic novels in the first half of 2022. Doughnuts and Doom by Balacz Lorinczi is perfect fall reading, centered around the “will they/won’t they” relationship between a twitchy witch and a feisty rock star. A sparky must-read this Halloween!
