I've been gone a while. I started reading fanfiction to escape and I got sucked in an abyss.

I have no idea if someone else is hosting similar challenges. I just grabbed some of what I have hosted before.

Here's to a happy year of great reading
Jan2023: Not much has changed. Writing a fanfiction now O_o as well as reading but I bought 7 new books in December and hope to get those read soon. Crossing fingers about adding challenges (late!)

The Challenge that Dare not Speak it's Name

The Challenge that Dare Not Speak its Name... has it's own blog!

Here's a quick run-down but check out the blog and sign-up. I'm going for the Pink Triangle level.


The basic idea of this challenge is to read books about GLBT topics and/or by GLBT authors.

The challenge runs year-round, and there will be three levels of participation:
  • Lambda Level: Read 4 books.
  • Pink Triangle Level: Read 8 books.
  • Rainbow Level: Read 12 or more books.
You don't need to choose your books right away, and they can change at any time. Overlaps with other challenges are fine.

In January, I will put up a post for you to leave links to your reviews, if you like. Those links can help serve as a reference for others. That will also be how I track participants for prize drawings.

Books to choose from:

10,000 Dresses by Marcus Ewert - Jan 1
A Time Before Me by Michael Holloway Perronne
Another Kind of Cowboy by Susan Juby
Crossover by Jeff Rud
Last Exit to Normal by Michael Harmon
Magic's Promise by Mercedes Lackey
Magic's Pawn by Mercedes Lackey
Magic's Price by Mercedes Lackey
Nothing Pink by Mark Hardy
Of All the Stupid Things by
Out of the Pocket by Bill Konigsberg
What They Always Tell Us by Martin Wilson

Are you open to fiction and non-fiction for this challenge? it sounds fun; since I am a high school librarian I try to read a broad range of genres so that I can help ALL my students find something to read and enjoy
