Below you’ll find a list of reviews & recs from Aveline Reynard, specifically queer speculative fiction: in other words, books that have some kind of science fiction & fantasy element and prominently feature LGBTQIA+ characters. Occasionally I’ll read slightly outside of this, but that’s the vast majority of what I’m interested in reading.
Check out my review policy for answers to questions like: How do I score my reviews? What do I warn for/how do I tag reviews? What do I particularly like or dislike? How do authors submit a book for me to review?
Please note that this is a work-in-progress! Some books I’ve read and rated but haven’t cleaned up a full review for the site; others should be coming soon. Review are organized first by Rating, then by Title.
