Do you know any databases that include/list forms books are available in? I'm really interested in finding lighthearted SFF books with low/no sexual content and LGBTQ rep, but it's hard to find places that make it easy to tell what's available as an audiobook.
Not that I know, of that doesn't mean no; your best bet is to check out audio-specific publications like AudioFile, which reviews Audiobooks. I do have this page that is extremely a work-in-progress, though: https://lgbtqreads.com/access/adult-fiction-available-in-audio/

New Releases: June 15-29, 2021
Indestructible Object by Mary McCoy (15th) For the past two years, Lee has been laser-focused on two things: her job as a sound tech at a local coffee shop and her podcast “Artists in Love,” which she cohosts with her boyfriend Vincent. Until he breaks up with her on the air right after graduation. When their unexpected split, the loss of her job, and her parent’s announcement that they’re…

Hi!! I know this is broad, but do you know of any good queer detective novels/mysteries? Adult is preferable to YA. Thank you so much for all you do!! <3
Loooove Kristen Lepionka’s Roxane Weary series, which stars a bi PI. But you can find a bunch more here: https://lgbtqreads.com/general-fiction/realistic-fiction-by-trope-setting/

Hey, thanks for all that you do! Your site and your blog are super awesome resources.
I was wondering if you happened to know of any books with monster/not-human protagonists or love interests? Any gender/sexuality is fine!
Lots! https://lgbtqreads.com/sff/paranormal-sff-by-protags/ Maybe start with Silver in the Wood or The Monster of Elendhaven. I feel like those are probably the closest to what you're asking for. I also just read and enjoyed The Witch King by H.E. Edgmon, which has a witch MC and fae LI.

hi I have a weirdly specific request!! I'm looking for a WLW novel with "who did this to you" energy. like one overprotective dramatic girlfriend and her girl gets hurt or whatever and she gets that dangerous gleam in her eye kinda thing. i know it's so niche but hoping you know something!
also wanted to rec a book I LOVED called Backwards to Oregon by Jae which was a nearly perfect lesbian western, if any of your followers are looking for a sapphic Oregon trail. thanks and love your blog as always!
Trouble Girls by Julia Lynn Rubin! It literally just came out two weeks ago and is exactly this - Sapphic YA Thelma & Louise. Also, going older and a little different (because the girlfriend is dead - not a spoiler - so also hard to say she's being "dramatic"), Far From You by Tess Sharpe. Honestly, even Tess's The Girls I've Been kinda has that energy. (Also closer to the FFY vibes: All the Things We Do in the Dark by Saundra Mitchell and Throwaway Girls by Andrea Contos.) But really the Rubin is exactly what you're asking for, first and foremost.

Hi! I was wondering if you know any books—preferably mlm—with romances that can be characterized by the phrase ‘mutual obsession’. Thanks!
Try THE WICKER KING by K. Ancrum and THESE VIOLENT DELIGHTS by Micah Nemerever

Do you know any other books like The Witch King and The Cruel Prince?
Meaning YA with Fae? Try A DARK AND HOLLOW STAR by Ashley Shuttlesworth and MASTER OF ONE by Jaida Jones and Danielle Bennett.

Looking for a friend’s 15 year old m/m books (he’s not sure if he’s bi, gay or not). He loves theatre and music, so if I can find any of those I’d love to get them for him
SIMON VS. THE HOMO SAPIENS AGENDA by Becky Albertalli, ANYTHING COULD HAPPEN by Will Walton, and CAMP by LC Rosen would all be good for him. The middle one isn’t a romance like the other two, but it has a young (14) gay protag who loves music and I’d recommend it for someone new to figuring things out.

queers doing murder? à la Beautiful Creatures (the film with Kate Winslet and Melanie Lynskey). Or if you haven't seen it, recs with the same vibes as Dangerous Girls or People Like Us? TIA!
Haven’t seen it but I got you on the books. Try A LINE IN THE DARK by Malinda Lo, ALL EYES ON US by Kit Frick, THE TRUTH ABOUT KEEPING SECRETS by Savannah Brown, and THE GIRLS I’VE BEEN by Tess Sharpe.

Hey there! I'm looking for some books that are set outside of America - specifically, in the UK. Tad bit frustrated trying to find something that I can at all relate to. Preferably with trans and nonbinary rep. Thanks!!
There are lots of great UK authors writing queer books! The PROUD anthology is a great way to find a bunch, and it’s edited by Juno Dawson, who writes trans rep. Here’s a great springboard: https://lgbtqreads.com/2019/03/07/new-release-spotlight-proud-ed-by-juno-dawson

Hey I was wondering if you have a wlw book that would absolutely crush me. I wanna be bawling and shaking and not be able to function for a week lmao. Idk if you've watched the movie lost and delirious, but it hurt me so bad and i would love a book like that. Preferably YA. Thank you so much!
I truly do not understand y'all and your desire for absolute devastation, but whatever because I will never pass up a chance to recommend We Are Okay by Nina LaCour where warranted.

Hi there! Do you happen to know of any Russian or Ukrainian or Central Asian centred queer books or stories? Doesn't have to be YA. Thank you
Not sure if you mean centered there or not, but if that's not strictly necessary, try A Door Behind a Door by Yelena Moskovich and The Wise and the Wicked by Rebecca Podos.
