GLBT Challenge 2009 - COMPLETE

I am joining the GLBT Challenge 2009 hosted by Amanda at The Zen Leaf. The challenge is to read 6 GLBT books from July 1, 2009 through December 31, 2009. This will be a real challenge since I don't read a lot of GLBT books in general. Here is my list.

1. √ Kissing Kate - Lauren Myracle

2.Boy Meets Boy - David Leviathan

3. √ Another Kind of Cowboy - Susan Juby

4. Between Mom and Jo - Julie Anne Peters

5.√ The Straight Road to Kylie - Nico Medina

6. Ash - Malinda Lo


Some alternates (Mostly YA) are:

The Bermudez Triangle - Maureen Johnson

Belmondo Style - Adam Berlin

Rainbow Boys - Alex Sanchez

Naomi & Ely's No Kiss List - Rachel Cohen & David Leviathan

Even Cowgirls Get the Blues - Tom Robbins

Down to the Bone - Mayra Lazara Dole

The Straight Road to Kylie - Nico Medina

Hero - Perry Moore (I've read this before and it was very good. It's about a gay superhero.)


  1. Yay! I'm so glad you're joining. :D

  2. I haven't heard of half of these. Wonderful suggestions. I'm going to have to add some to my tbr list!

  3. You may like "Hero" by Perry Moore.

    It's YA, its GLBT and its about superheroes.

  4. Erica, I've read it but I should add it to the list.

  5. I read Between Mom & Jo last year (I think?) and really enjoyed it. Julie Anne Peters is such a great author. The characters are three-dimensional and the conflict is genuine.
