LGBTQIA Reading Challenge

The Book Dragon's Lair is hosting this LGBTQIA reading challenge for next year. 



This is a no stress challenge so there aren't any levels, just one guideline and one requirement.

Guideline: Read one book of at least 100 pages.

Requirement: Book should have a main character or significant secondary character that fits one of the LGBTQI or A requirements.

Not sure what I'm talking about? That's okay, I looked it up. I knew the LGBT part - Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender. The QIA part I didn't know - Queer, Intersex and Asexual. I thought Q was questioning but I read th
at many people who don't "adhere to sexual and/or gender norms use" Queer in a positive light. Intersex is a general term used for a variety of conditions in which a person is born with a reproductive or sexual anatomy that doesn't seem to fit the typical definitions of female or male. And someone who identifies as Asexual is without sexual feelings or associations.

Here is what I am reading:
  1. Pink--Lili Wilkinson
  2. To All the Boys I've Loved Before--Jenny Han
  3. Are You My Mother?--Alison Bechtel
  4. Openly Bob--Bob Smith
  5. Catch Me--Lisa Gardner
  6. A List of Things That Didn't Kill Me--Jason Schmidt
  7. Soulless--Gail Carrier
  8. Ash--Malinda Lo
  9. When She Woke--Hillary Jordan
  10. Willow Weep for Me--Meri Nana-Ama Danquah
  11. The Rules Do Not Apply--Ariel Levy
