October is LGBT History Month in the US (in the UK it’s February) and Roof Beam Reader is hosting The Literary Others: An LGBT Reading Event. The goal is to read as many LGBT-themed/related books, or books by LGBT authors.
You can still sign up HERE, so go go go! Adam over at Roof Beam Reader has put up an extensive list of possible reads (see the aforementioned link) to give you some ideas (and some are just as suitable for The Classics Club challenge!).
I have quite a few lgbt(related) books on my to-read list and I’m excited to start reading. I think I may be a bit too ambitious, but among them there’s a few books that I definitely want to read in October.
- The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller
- Under the Poppy by Kathe Koja
- Giovanni’s Room by James Baldwin
- The Dark Wife by Sarah Diemer
Also… this event means I will be hosting my first giveaway! Stay tuned 😉
