BookLovingLady @⚣❣☙ Michaelle ❧❣⚣
I only found it once (at #166) so some other librarian have performed a duplicate check.


message 3: by Josy (new)

Josy #338 Lolita
#338 Cross My Heart
#352 Bared to You
#358 Beautiful Disaster
should be removed from this list due to content. Thanks :)

Jenn (not Lily) Why is Lord of the Flies (#239) on this list? Maybe it's been a loooooong time since I read that back in high school, but I don't remember any m/m romance in it...

The following books do NOT have m/m romance in them and should be removed from this list:
Lord of the Flies
The Stranger
Cross My Heart
Lolita
Bared to You
Beautiful Disaster
Outlander (although Lord John is gay, there is no M/M romance in these books)

If you'd like The Stranger and Outlander removed as well, do mention the number you found them on...
