Gay YA: Vote for your M/M favourites!

Updated: May 28, 2020

Aaaah I'm so excited to share today's blog post with you because for once it's not just me blabbering on about books! Today it's all about YOU. That's right. I want to know your favourite M/M couples in gay YA fiction. I've spent this week putting together a list of some of the smooshiest soft boys in queer teen lit and now I'm handing it over to you to decide which boys are the ultimate OTP!

You only get one vote so choose carefully! With gay power comes gay responsibility!

And if you're unfamiliar with any of the boys mentioned in the poll, here's a list of all of the books featured - be sure to check them out! Thanks to everyone on Twitter for their contributions - there were a few I haven't heard of and I can't wait to get my hands on them!
