7 Works with Aromantic Representation for Aromantic Awareness Week!

A graphic created with text and book covers overlaying stripes in the colors of the aromantic flag (dark green, light green, white, light gray, black). The text reads "7 Aro Books for Aromantic Week" and this is followed by 7 book covers. The books are: Archivist Wasp by Nicole Kornher-Stace; An Accident of Stars by Foz Meadows; Not Your Backup by C. B. Lee; Hockey Bois by A. L. Heard; Sheepfarmer's Daughter by Elizabeth Moon; Convenience Store Woman by Sayaka Murata; and The Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon.

Today, February 18th, marks the beginning of Aromantic Spectrum Awareness Week! To celebrate, we asked our contributors to recommend to us books with aro characters. This was a doubly challenging ask, because we also did a rec list for Aromantic Awareness Week last year, and we didn’t want any repeats this year!

Recommendations contributed by Shadaras (@shadaras on Tumblr), Nina Waters (@unforth on Tumblr), Polls (@not-gwaenchanha on Tumblr), and Shea Sullivan.
