LGBT+ Books | 2018 Edition


At the beginning to June 2017, I wrote a blog post outlining some LGBT+ books, or rather books with characters who are members of the LGBT+ community. This year, pride month has crept up on me so I’m going to do a round two before the month is over.

During the week, I read the eleventh book in this series – Midnight – and it prompted me to write this post. This series isn’t the biggest series out there, and in fact I’ve found it difficult to find people who also read it and I just wanted to give it a little bit of love because I really do adore this series.
