Kaje Harper | 16810 comments Hey everyone,

We'll have an open nomination this time, but do be aware that a more accessible book (low cost, in libraries, etc) is easier for members to join in on.

What YA LGBTQ book would you like to read, or do you think members who haven't read it should try, (and those who have read it can discuss), as our BotM for Sept-Oct?

What book made a difference to you, and might to other readers? What sounds interesting, appealing or different?


If possible, link the book page on GR and tell us a little about it or why you picked it, or post the blurb.

The titles of past books of the month that we have read are on all the threads in this "Book of the Month" folder, and you can also check with a search of the group's book-of-the-month Bookshelf at - https://www.goodreads.com/group/books... Please do not repeat a book we have read - either as a past Book of the Month or as a Buddy Read (check the Buddy Read folder) - and please only nominate the first book in a series, unless a later book stands alone completely as a solo read.

Up to two nominations per member. Nominations will be open through Midnight Aug 30, or sooner if we get 12 nominations - the max for voting. Feel free to renominate a book that did not win in a past vote, if it fits this category.

(Authors please do not nominate your own books - but readers can definitely nominate a member author's work)

Nominations are now closed. Vote in the poll through Sept 5th here - https://www.goodreads.com/poll/show/1...

Iamshadow | 334 comments I'd like to nominate two runners-up from previous months - Girls Made of Snow and Glass because it's one of my favourite books this year, and None of the Above, because I don't think we've read a book with an intersex character since I joined, and that's a segment of the community that isn't widely publicised or understood, despite the large number of intersex people in society.

Benjamin Appleby-Dean (benjaminappleby-dean) | 69 comments On the same note I'd like to nominate Laura Lam's Pantomime, about an intersex teen who runs away from noble society to join the circus.
