We don’t know about you, but we haven’t stopped thinking about Love, Simon since we saw it in theaters last week.The Nick Robinson-led flick is incredible, but we can only afford to go to the movies so many times before it comes out on DVD and we can binge, ya know? Well, unless celebrities keep buying out theaters for fans! But what are we supposed to do in the meantime?

Hit the library! If you’ve already read Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli, the bestselling YA novel that the flick was based on, that’s an awesome start. But it turns out there are a ton of stories on the shelves about coming out that will make you laugh and cry just as much as Love, Simon did. The young adult genre is all about representation, so even though all of these LGBTQ+ novels cover the same topic, they do it in their own unique way.

That means you can read these books back to back to back without getting bored — we promise! Who knows, maybe they’ll last all the way until the DVD comes out in June?
