LGBT April Wrap-up Post
I know I’m a little late with my wrap-up post, and I didn’t manage to read as many LGBT books as I had planned in April. But I’m really happy I was able to participate at all – I even managed to go to a twitter party 😀 LGBT April was hosted by Cayce of Fighting Dreamer and Laura of Laura plus Books. And I applaud both of them for hosting this amazing challenge – awareness is really important. And they have started a new LGBT challenge right off the bat, this one is open until November 30th, so don’t hesitate to link up! My oldest daughter painted the button above for me, I love it!
Apart from chatting with the other participating bloggers both on twitter and on various blogs, what I appreciated the most during LGBT April was the fact that I found many new-to-me LGBT titles to add to my shelves.
Here is a list of all the LGBT books I have reviewed on my blog, if you want to check them out 😉
A Tale of Two Mommies – Vanita Oelschlager, this is a children’s book, in which a little boy grows up with two mothers.
A Tale of Two Daddies – Vanita Oelschlager, also a children’s book, where a little girl grows up with two dads.
The Pack or the Panther (Tales of the Harker Pack #1)- Tara Lain, an adult paranormal / shifter story where the packleader’s wolfy son is gay.
The Wolf in Gucci Loafers (Tales of the Harker Pack #2) – Tara Lain
If You Could be Mine – Sara Farizan a book set in Iran, where being gay can give you the death penalty.
Frenemy of the People – Nora Olsen, an excellent YA/NA story with lesbian and bi main characters. Well written and quite fun in many instances.
Rush – Nyrae Dawn, an adult M/M romance, where especially one of the main characters feels as if he could never come out of the closet.
One Man Guy – Michael Barakvia, is a very sweet and endearing YA story where Alek realizes he is gay at the same time he falls in love for the first time.
Few Are Chosen by Storm Grant is a paranormal YA/NA novella. Well written and short.
Because of Her by K.E. Payne is an excellent NA story about a lesbian main character who had to move to London with her parents, and leave her girlfriend behind.
The books I added (and bought) during LGBT April are:
Captive Prince: Volume One – S.U. Pacat
The Song of Achilles – Madeline Miller
Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe – Benjamin Alire Sàenz
Carmilla – Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu
