LGBT YA Challenge: Favourite…..

LGBT Challenge This month in the LGBT YA Challenge was dubbed by Cayce as List Month. She has challenged us to make a list, any list, on your favourite LGBT YA… I LOVE LISTS. I made a list of favourite LGBT+ novels before for LGBT Month in April. This also (or actually, mostly) included non-YA and I definitely think it’s worth to check it out.

But this time, as per the challenge, I will stick with YA. So I am going with:

Favourite LGBT YA read so far

Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe Ask the Passengers How to Repair a Mechanical Heart Love in the Time of Global Warming Otherbound Stir-fry

Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Sáenz
This story is so touching and just like pretty much everyone else on planet Earth I loved it.

Ask the Passengers by A.S. King
Contemporary, magical realism
Ask the Passengers was on my other list as well. I love the message this novel send and I enjoyed the magical realism aspect (although King could’ve taken it a bit further imho). See my review here.

How to Repair a Mechanical Heart by J.C. Lillis
I won this book in the LGBT Challenge in April and it was the surprise of the year. I fell in love with it, it’s just so much fun! See my review here.

Love in the Time of Global Warming (Love in the Time of Global Warming, #1) by Francesca Lia Block
Fantasy, dystopia
This book’s story, based loosely on the Odyssey, takes place in a destroyed Los Angeles in the future. Block’s style is unusual (but a little while ago I read Weetzie Bat so I got used to it) and slightly all over the place, but I enjoy it.

Otherbound by Corinne Duyvis
Otherbound has a) a really interesting story, b) great world building and c) diversity!

Stir-Fry by Emma Donoghue
This one never seems to appear on LGBT+ YA lists. And while it was definitely not the best I read, I really loved it. It’s cute! Also, Ireland.
