1. Rat Queens
I loved Rat Queens, every volume has been more fun than the last. My favourite character is definitely Betty, the gay and permanently stoned smidgen. She's hilarious and shares my love of sweets and candy.
One of my favourite graphic novel series without question. It tackles a lot of problems within friendship groups but also going from friends to a relationship. Molly and Mal are so precious, it's been lovely seeing how their relationship has blossomed over the volumes.
I loved this book. For such a tiny novel it had such an awful lot of content, including some fantastic representation. Nancy, the character this book focuses on is openly asexual. She loves a good flirtation but beyond that isn't interested in anything. Then there's Kade, possibly my favourite character who is a transgender man. He's absolutely fantastic. I adored how this book blended contemporary issues with magic.
One of the very few books/graphic novels/anything to take place at University level. It deals with so many of the new experiences people go through. Moving away from home, getting drunk for the first time and new relationships. Daisy, one of the roommates starts dating for the first time and her friends are there to assist her in wooing the woman of her choice. It's such a cute series.
