About the Folio

Whether I’m talking about queer representation or just recommending my favorite books, I’ve taken to TikTok to voice my thoughts. Over the course of the year I’ve gained over a hundred thousand followers on my account @literarylesbian. The goal of my account has always been to help younger readers find the representation they need, as I didn’t get the same when I was their age. This mindset is reflected in my picks in the young adult and LGBTQ+ genre.

Crier's War

Crier's War

By Nina Varela
Whether it’s the enemies-to-lovers angst, edge-of-your-seat slow burn, adorable banter, unique world-building, or the unique thrill of seeing someone learn how to love for the first time — all that, and including the fact that it’s sapphic — “Crier’s War” by Nina Varela has everything a reader could want.
