'Reading a book is like re-writing it for yourself. You bring to a novel, anything you read, all your experience of the world. You bring your history and you read it in your own terms.'- Angela Carter

LGBT Month

Ula @ Blog of Erised linked me to this and I definitely cannot wait to take part in it. I've only read a handful of LGBT books but have always wanted to go further into the genre. This is the perfect challenge to get me back into reading the books and raising awareness. Follow the links to Laura and Cayce's blogs to join in! 

LGBT Month is hosted by Cayce at Fighting Dreamer and Laura at Laura Plus Books. It runs throughout April and it’s here to celebrate LGBT readers, LGBT authors and of course LGBT books!
Introducing… LGBT Month! Throughout the month of April, me and Cayce decided that we should celebrate the LGBT+ community (lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender) through our love of books. Just a disclaimer, if you’re against LGBT+ in any way, please click out of this post. I respect your opinion but this is only for the people who accept it. So if you do, stay and sign up!
This event has no real rules. All you have to do is read and share LGBT+ books. At lease one book or one post! Try to spread the acceptance of LGBT+. You don’t need to have a blog. You can have a YouTube channel, you can review books on Goodreads and/or you can use the hashtag #LGBTApril on Twitter!
Different things we’ll be doing during April are reviews, giveaways, guest posts, discussions, everything! We really hope you can too! There will also be Twitter parties! At the beginning of each week, we’ll post a Linky. There, you can link-up all your different posts. You can read all the things other people are posting too.
Also, there will be a READ-ALONG! It’s not compulsory for you to read it but it’ll be a lot more fun if you do. There are no set rules on how you have to read it, as long as you read it April with us. And… you get to vote on which book you want to read! If it’s too hard for you to vote for 1, you can for for 2 but don’t go crazy and vote for all of them.
I'm really looking forward to this and here are the books that I'm going to be reading:
