LGBT Challenge 2015

One of my goals in 2015 is to read more books with LGBT characters and story lines. So my last minute decision to join the LGBT Challenge 2015 hosted by Niji Feels feels like a good one. The challenge runs between 1st January through to 31st December 2015 and I will be choosing the YA Allegiant challenge which is to read 3-10 LGBT YA books.  I'm hoping to read more but don't want to over extend myself.  Some of the titles on my tentative TBR pile include (but are not limited to):

Lies We Tell Ourselves by Robin Talley read in January
Love Hurts edited by Malorie Blackman read in January
Grasshopper Jungle by Andrew Smith read in January
I'll Give You the Sun by Jandy Nelson read in January
How They Met and other stories by David Levithan read in January
More Than This by Patrick Ness
This Book Is Gay by James Dawson
Two Boys Kissing by David Levithan
Every Day by David Levithan
The Bane Chronicles by Cassandra Clare, Maureen Johnson and Sarah Rees Brennan
Gone, Gone, Gone by Hannah Moskowitz
Hero by Perry Moore
The Miseducation of Cameron Post by Emily M Danforth
Lies My Girlfriend Told Me by Julie Anne Peters
Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli
Read Me Like A Book by Liz Kessler

What are some of your favourite LGBT YA books? Which books should I add to my TBR pile? Will you be joining the LGBT Challenge 2015? 


  1. Hi, Michelle! Thank you for taking part in the LGBT Challenge this year! And wow, you have already read 5 books - you are doing great! Just keep reading!! :)

    From your list, I have read More Than This, Two Boys Kissing (great book!), Every Day (will definitely read the sequel), Gone, Gone, Gone (loved it) and Simon (LOVED it).

    1. Thank you for hosting it, Cayce :) I'm doing very well so far for my LGBT reading this year :) I plan to tackle the rest of the pile soon.

      I think one of my next reads will be either another David Levithan or More Than This seeing as it is on my recent List of Shame. We shall see :)
