A Makeshift Reading List

This reading list is mostly for my own benefit. However, if anyone happens to stumble across it please note the books on it. Also, suggestions to be added would be great. I will eventually make a permanent LGBTA+ Reading List which will hopefully involve books that I will do a review/response to. However, in constructing such lists I first need to make a list to work from. These are taken from a number of other reading lists that I found. For ease, at the present moment I won’t edit them to remove copies. I will alter this description after that has been changed. 🙂

I didn’t post the books themselves under here directly because of the layout. I’m being lazy. In my defense it’s roughly 2 am and I have a lot to be doing right now. As I said, this is makeshift and will be edited.

I plan on starting to gather some of these books and reading them. I hope I will be able to do a response a month, maybe more frequently. However, when school starts back up I may have to slow down and draw that out. I’m minoring in Literature so I have about a million things to read and write during the semester so I can’t be certain to have the time to keep up with a scheduled review process. However, I will do my best.
