It’s the month you’ve been waiting for, right?
It’s a month to read ALL the LGBT books you can, to have some fun, participate in some challenges, to win some prizes, to SHOUT about LGBT fiction and to get the hashtag trending on two different nights! What’s not to love?
So first things first…
You need to Sign Up!
But don’t worry, it’s harmless and will take you three seconds. Just add your name and URL link (blog, twitter, fb, etc) to the linky below and that’s IT. Then you can enter all the challenges and giveaways throughout the month! Yaaay!
This is just so you can post with us, keep an eye on our blogs and participate in everything you wish to!
(You are under no obligation to enter any of the challenges, they’re just something fun to do if you feel like it and want to perhaps win some free books!)

Looking forward to seeing you there!
I have decided not to set myself any goals this month because I fail at sticking to them but these are the books I own that feature LGBT characters or themes so I can choose to read as many or as few of these as I wish!
