LGBT Challenge 2015

Here is one that is new to me.  Sign up here for this one. Details:

The LGBT Challenge is back for its second year here on Niji Feels (formerly known as Fighting Dreamer)! Stock your shelves/wishlist with LGBT books and get ready for a(nother) year of LGBT-awesomeness!!
The Details:
  • The challenge runs from 1 January through 31 December 2015
  • Like last year, each month there will be a mini challenge/theme/list/thingy
  • This year, there is no form/genre restriction (you can read whatever you want – young adult, new adult, adult, erotica, nonfiction, manga – as long as its LGBT)
  • And the LGBT in the challenge’s name does not mean just LGBT, you can read any book that falls under the L(esbian) G(ay) B(isexual) T(ransexual) T(ransgender) Q(ueer) Q(uestioning) I(ntersex) A(sexual)+ spectrum
  • There will be link ups throughout the year (but the setup is going to be a little different from last year)
  • All formats (print books, ebooks, audiobooks, comics) are eligible
  • Books can overlap with other challenges
  • (At… certain times) there will be surprise giveaways, as well as one big giveaway at the end of the year ;)
To sign up:
  1. Write a post joining the challenge (you have to have a blog to participate)
  2. Pick a level:
  • YA ALLEGIANT: read 3-10 YA LGBT books
  • GENRE HOPPER: read 3-10 LGBT books from any genre
  • YA DEVOURER: 10+ YA LGBT books
