Introducing… LGBT Month! Throughout the month of April, Laura and Cayce decided that we should celebrate the LGBT+ community (lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender) through our love of books.
This event has no real rules. All you have to do is read and share LGBT+ books. At least one book or one post! Try to spread the acceptance of LGBT+. You don’t need to have ablog. You can have a YouTube channel, you can review books on Goodreads and/or you can use the hashtag #LGBTApril on Twitter!
Different things we’ll be doing during April are reviews, giveaways, guest posts, discussions, everything! We really hope you can too! There will also be Twitter parties! At the beginning of each week, we’ll post a Linky. There, you can link-up all your different posts. You can read all the things other people are posting too.
I've decided to take part in this LGBT month in April! I love setting myself challenges or reading goals and this reading event really calls out to me. I really do want to see more LGBT story lines and characters in the books that I read. So I've combed through my TBR shelves/Kindle and picked out this list of books that fit. I'm not sure if I'll make it through this entire list but I'm hoping to review any book I read for this challenge during the month of April as well as (possibly) writing one or two posts about the previous books I've read and loved with LGBT themes and characters.
