The 2015 LGBT Challenge!


1 JAN – 31 DEC

hosted by Niji Feels

see here more info to sign up & send in your reviews for January!


  • The challenge runs from 1 January through 31 December 2015
  • Like last year, each month there will be a mini challenge/theme/list/thingy
  • This year, there is no form/genre restriction (you can read whatever you want – young adult, new adult, adult, erotica, nonfiction, manga – as long as its LGBT)
  • And the LGBT in the challenge’s name does not mean just LGBT, you can read any book that falls under the L(esbian) G(ay) B(isexual) T(ransexual) T(ransgender) Q(ueer) Q(uestioning) I(ntersex) A(sexual)+ spectrum
  • There will be link ups throughout the year (but the setup is going to be a little different from last year)
  • All formats (print books, ebooks, audiobooks, comics) are eligible
  • Books can overlap with other challenges
  • First time reads and rereads both count
  • (At… certain times) there will be surprise giveaways, as well as one big giveaway at the end of the year 😉
    1. Pick a level:
    • YA ALLEGIANT: read 3-10 YA LGBT books

    • YA DEVOURER: 10+ YA LGBT books
    • OMNIVOROUS BOOKGLUTTON: 10+ LGBT books from any genre

Yeaaahhh. So I’m gonna go with the obvious choice here, and pick Omnivorous Bookglutton as my level. I’m even going to go a little farther and set my goal for 57 books. (Don’t ask why I chose that number. I haven’t a clue.)

  2. Wonderland (Volume 5) by Raven Gregory & Eric M. Esquivel (Writers); J.G. Miranda (Artist) (GN/OTHER)
