Gay Pride Month PB, MG and YA Book Recommendations

I have been blogging for seven years, and find my summer hiatus essential to my blogging energy. Plus my tendency to use the summer to travel far and wide doesn’t lend itself to regular access to wifi and social media. I plan on using the summer to make final edits to my WIP and start subbing that to agents, as well as start novel #4! (just in case ya think it’s all about pina coladas, beaches and hammocks).

Since its inception, my blog has focused on diversity in all its forms in children’s literature, and having read a number of superb LGBTQIA books over the last couple of years, I wanted to give you a few of Miss Marple’s favorites to celebrate this month, and/or as great summer reads. Click the link for the reviews.

  1. What a great list of favorites. I need to add some to my reading list. Have a great summer traveling, writing and editing! But I know you’ll also take time to have fun with friends along the way!

  2. I’ve read only a few of these, and, like Pat, I’m adding more to my list. Thank you and have a wonderful vacation break, Joanna!
