Note from the Times: This bestseller list comes to us straight from The Raven Book Store in Lawrence. See other editions of the list here.

I was really excited to see two books in particular on this week’s list: No. 5 and No. 9. These are both from the Raven’s Perfectly Queer Little Library initiative, where you can buy books via our website for the purpose of donating them to queer youth in our community.

This week’s list means that enough of you are supporting this initiative to make donated books into bestsellers. That’s pretty cool, if you ask me.

Thank you for supporting our efforts to ensure that queer kids can see themselves in the books they read. 


1.     Leigh Bardugo, The Familiar

2.     Karl Ramberg, Stone Diary

3.     Siobhán Gallagher, Full of Myself: A Graphic Memoir about Body Image
