Review of Proud compiled & edited by Juno Dawson

Read: 13th March 2019 – 31st March 2019

Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Spoilers in review: No

This is an anthology of short stories (and the occasional poem), each with an accompanying illustration. Every single piece in here is about queer people, and by queer people.

I adored it.

Full disclosure, I requested this solely for the illustration by Alice Oseman, but almost every single other piece in this book was an absolute treat!!

My favourites were probably the Asian-inspired fantasy with two childhood friends realising that there’s a reason why they don’t want to marry the Emperor, highschool au Pride and Prejudice with lesbians, and the DnD themed one with an enby protag. Honestly, though? You could ask me again in a couple of hours and I’d probably give you different answers. Even the ones that I didn’t love, I still enjoyed.

There’s a wide variety of genres and identities represented in here, I’m pretty sure that there’s something for everyone. I highly recommend it.

I received an e-arc through Netgalley in return for an honest review.
