Quick Queer book reclist

So a couple of months back I asked… or more accurately complained about the overabundance of hetero-teen-love-triangles 

So since then I’ve hunted through goodreads and my library for books with a little more variety, So here’s a few of the books I’ve come across, some I’ve read others are still on my to-read shelve, a few are recs from other people, but I think we could all use a few more books with queer characters
