LBGT Readathon: Goals Post

Posted May 4, 2013 by chooseyabooks in Uncategorized / 5 Comments

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 🙂

  1. Wooo! Thanks for joining us Lucy! I had a long work day yesterday as well so I totally understand! 🙂
    Good luck on your realistic goals! Hope you have fun. xx

  2. I’m participating too. My goal is 3-4 books. Already finished one so hoping to knock out two tomorrow with a whole day devoted to reading since Monday I’ll be stuck at the day job and can’t read there. =(
