LGBT Favourites: Part 3

LGBTMonth001

LGBT Month is hosted by Laura @ Laura Plus Books and Cayce @ Fighting Dreamer.  It runs throughout the month of April and it’s here to celebrate LGBT+ readers, LGBT+ authors and of course LGBT+ books.

 >>>

As part of LGBT Month I wanted to highlight some of the amazing authors/books I read in the last year that really affected me. Some of these books have pride of place in my all-time favourite reads and I wanted to share them with you. I have only included Young Adult and New Adult titles (though some cover a longer period of time) in this list. I have already discussed the Seasons series by Jay Bell, Survivor stories by J. P. Barnaby, Hannah Moskowitz’s Gone, Gone, Gone and Teeth, and the Gives Light series by Rose Christo in Part 1. I wrote about Hushed, Suicide Watch and Made of Stars by Kelley York, Pantomime and Shadowplay by Laura Lam and Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Sáenz in Part 2. Here are more of my favourite LGBT books/authors.

I have always been a little bit fascinated by how dramatically book covers can change over the years, especially in the YA genre (for example have you seen the difference in Sarah Dessen’s books – how they looked when they were first released in the mid-late 90s compared to what the covers look like now? Check them out – it is actually quite funny just how different they are!). LGBTQ books and how they are presented and packaged, have also changed majorly over the years. Below are some examples of books with significant LGBTQ content and how their covers have evolved over time.

Here are the rules:

Stacking The Shelves is all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, may it be physical or virtual. This means you can include books you buy in physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts and of course ebooks!

  • Participants are to create their own Stacking the Shelves post and link bank to Tynga’s Reviews so more people can join the fun!
  • Posts can be laid out any way you want.
  • The host site posts updates on a Saturday but bloggers taking part can post any day they choose.
  • Visit Tynga’s Reviews on a Saturday and add your link.
  • Visit other participants sites to find out what they have added!

The rules are simple and it is a really fun way to showcase your books and see what other bloggers are excited about this week! Not to mention the fact that it is a good way to interact with and get to know other bloggers!
