Sadly this post is a day late as yesterday I was working a ten-hour shift so as you can imagine, by the time I got home I was too exhausted to think about blogging. However, today I’m properly starting Faye’s LGBT Read-a-Thon.
When Faye announced this event, I thought I should definitely take part as LGBT issues are something that are incredibly important in YA and are often ignored. Considering many teenagers who read YA may be at that age where they’re just trying to figure out who they like, it’s important that issues about sexuality can be found in books – which are often considered a haven for people to escape in.
The books I’m hoping to read in this readathon are:
1. Will Grayson, Will Grayson- David Levithan and John Green
2. Ask The Passengers- A S King
I would normally try and read more but because this weekend is quite busy, I’m going to try and be more realistic in my targets.
If anyone else is taking part in this readathon do let me know how you’re getting on 🙂
