GLBT Challenge 2010

I just saw this challenge over at GLBT Reading Blog and thought it would be great! I love reading GLBT books, especially those that fall under YA category.
The basic idea of this challenge is to read books about GLBT topics and/or by GLBT authors. The challenge runs year-round, and there will be three levels of participation:
  • Lambda Level: Read 4 books.
  • Pink Triangle Level: Read 8 books.
  • Rainbow Level: Read 12 or more books.
My goal is to read at least 8 for now, but hopefully I'll get to the Rainbow level. Please leave suggestions for (YA) GLBT books that I could read. I don't know very many. If you know of any GLBT books that are coming out this year, that are also debut books let me know!
4. David Inside Out by Lee Bantle
My list:
Almost Perfect by Brian Katcher
Ash by Malinda Lo
The God Box by Alex Sanchez
Hero by Perry Moore
Keeping You a Secret by Julie Anne Peters
Kissing Kate by Lauren Myracle
My Invented Life by Lauren Bjorkman
Parrotfish by Ellen Wittlinger
Sprout by Dale Peck
Mini challenges:

I think julie anne peters is publishing a new book next year and her most recent one Rage: a love story came out like two months ago.Hope that helps.

I love glbt books. As for authors...julie anne peters, alex sanchez, lee bantle, ellen wittlinger (something like that...she wrote Hard Love), catherine ryan hyde has some GLBT characters in her novels...

These all write teen fiction and they have either one or many books that fall under the genre so I'm just saying their names and you can see what looks good!!
