Favorite Book Lists: Superheroes

small favorite booksToday I am back with another of our regular features here at Joyfully Jay, our Favorite Book Lists! Today I am talking about superheroes. As with most of these lists, I was inspired by books I have reviewed here. After recently reading some great superhero stories, I thought about how much I enjoy this trope. I think most people have this fantasy at some point, the ability to be extra special, to have super powers or be able to do things others can’t. Personally, I always wanted to be able to fly. Plus, superhero stories often have that element of fun, of being able to have stories and characters that are a bit fantastical.

So here is a list of some of our favorite superhero stories here on the blog. Definitely check them out if this is a trope you enjoy!

You can also see all our reviews that feature superheroes here. And if you want to check out Goodreads, they have two lists of GBLT superhero stories: Best SuperQueeroes and SuperVillains Books and Queer Superheroes.

So what do you all think about superhero stories? I’d love to hear your thoughts and any favorites you have that we should check out!

    I read the first book in the Panopolis series and loved it! I have Not Your Sidekick but I haven’t gotten around to reading it just yet.

    I’d like to suggest Superior by Jessica Lack. It’s a YA superhero story as well with two male MCs. It’s pretty quick read and funny! Oh, I forgot to mention aside from the queer representation, there’s also an interracial aspect.
