The GLBT Challenge is being hosted, for the third year in a row, by
Amanda from The Zen Leaf
I don’t know how, but I almost missed this one. A big thank-you to Amy at Amy Reads for bringing it to my attention. There is such a plethora of GLBT literature that has come to my attention over the past six months (mostly by way of Amy) and I am dying to sink my teeth into it. Just yesterday I was out shopping around for all the GLBTQ finalists for the Indie Lit Awards
We are supposed to set our own goal for this challenge, there is no real criteria. I am not sure I can really settle on a number. I didn’t read any GLBT this past year, so anything I read this year will be a vast improvement. I think I will aim for fifteen percent. Last year I read nearly one hundred books, so fifteen sounds like a number that I can handle.
I think GLBT books now make up nearly half of my TBBought list, below is just a taste of some of the GLBT books I hope to read this year.
