June is Pride Month, so below are links to some books that feature LGBT characters and/or storylines. GoodReads lists were separated into a lot of subcategories, so I ventured out in my search. Reviewing the lists below I've only read one, so I may need to expand my own repertoire to be more diverse in this area. FYI

I read Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Saenz last year. A very sweet, coming of age book, and is on both lists. One of my favorite is Middlesex. I held my breath through that entire book. An of course The Color Purple. It goes into the relationship of Celie and Shug much more than the hints in the movie. Alice Waters always inspires. My favorite from her is Anything We Love Can Be Saved.
