Hi dear friends,
Today is day 21st of Blogmas 2019 and I have two phenomenal books as winners for LGBTQ!
First let me tell you this: don’t be afraid to read M/M or F/F or Transgender or …! Because yes you have some who are heavy on the sex side, nearly porn but that’s just like M/F litterature too!
But you also have some books that just overflow with feelings that they are luminous!
The books I chose as my winners are books that I am convinced do more for the LGBTQ community than any gay pride or TV show or famous LGBTQ actor or actress. Because these books speak to our hearts and our souls!
Both resonated deeply and I swear I as a real mess when I finished them.
When a book opens your eyes, sweep you off your feet and make you experience every single feeling the characters felt, it’s a godsend.
My winners today are …
Someday, Someday by Emma Scott (adult romance)
When I read that story and that note, I thought that stories like this do more for LGBTQ and drug addicts than any medical journal or TV news. Because Emma, speaks to our hearts and opens our eyes and minds.
The stand Silas had to make simply undid him. It melted the last layer of ice that kept him away from my soul. It’s when hearts are shattered and spirits damaged that Emma does her best job and steal the last remnant of MY heart. In these moments of truth, where the soul is bare, when the heroes have to really choose to live, not merely survive a bond is forged forever between them and me.
That scene, that moment sealed the deal for me an pushed this story from the “I really like it” to the “I am in love with it”.
This romance story is epic and I would love to conclude with one of my favorite quote, coming from one of the best heroines I have read about and that I would marry if I was lesbian and she was not a fictional character: Darlene from “Forever Right Now” : “Fling away, Max! Darlene whispered in my mind. Grab happy and run like hell.”
And that’s me telling you to “Read away. Grab happy and read like hell.”
Birthday by Meredith Russo (YA transgender)
I know I alread featured this one once in this Blogmas and you’ll get a third time. That’s how this book impressed or imprinted me!
I read it till the wee hours of the morning and ended up with puffy eyes, a congested nose and not one tissue left, thankful for being more educated and aware of some transgender ordeals and sufferings.
You will get another quote for that book that I beg you, on my knees, to read as it’s so beautiful!
What would be your LGBTQ winner this year?
