Six for Sunday: June 14th, 2020

Happy Sunday lovelies! I hope everyone has had a great weekend so far!

Six for Sunday is hosted by A Little But A Lot and this week’s prompt is Favorite LBGT Characters!

Lila Bard, A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab

628fc0da5a540b092c8163b0b07fc47f
Lila is one of my favorite characters ever. She’s a gender fluid thief who takes what she wants and is always 10 steps a head of the men in her life. She’s reckless, fearless and will do anything to protect the people she loves. You definitely want her on your side in a fight–especially a knife fight.

Victor Vale, Vicious by V.E. Schwab

Victor Vale is one of my favorite villains of any book series. He’s also one of the few Asexual characters I’ve read. While Schwab didn’t explicitly state his sexuality in Vicious it was wonderful to have her state it in Vengeful. I will always prefer books where characters’ sexuality is not a plot point on any level but I really feel like Schwab’s explicit inclusion of Victor’s sexuality was needed.

(Honestly at this point you guys shouldn’t be surprised that two V.E. Schwab characters are on this list.) 

Gideon NavGideon the Ninth by Tamsyn Muir

gideon
I will scream about my love for Gideon until my dying breath and then I hope Harrow will bring my skeleton back so I can keep screaming my love. Honestly if I had a type it would be Gideon.

Mia Corvere, NeverNight by Jay Kristoff

Mia is a Bisexual mess and I love her.

Nico di Angelo, Percy Jackson and the Olympians by Rick Riordan

the-lightning-thief
Nico was the first gay character I ever met. And I think that say’s a lot about publishing. I’m so thankful for Rick Riordan and all of the inclusion he has in his books, and that he uses his platform to make possible.

Simon Spier, Simon Vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli

19547856 (1)
Simon vs. was the first contemporary YA book I read with a Gay MC and so it holds a special place in my heart. Up until recently I haven’t read many contemporary books because I hardly ever relate to the stories or the characters. But I related to Simon and his story a lot.
