LGBT Recs

With a growing focus on reviews of LGBT YA and MG books on the blog, I thought it might be cool to have a list of some of my favourites, with links to my reviews.

Reviews are all written by me, but are split between this blog and The Bookbag.

A couple of other notes - for the most comprehensive list I've seen (although it's US focused) of recent/upcoming releases, don't miss Dahlia Adler's QUILTBAG compendium!

For more great recommendations and discussion, I did a quick post on the best bloggers, sites and authors to follow on Twitter.

And, of course, for more on what's coming out in the UK, remember the spreadsheet of recent/upcoming releases lovingly maintained by Debbie!
