TM Smith top 10 LGBT YA books (and one movie)

This is in no particular order as I couldn’t tell you hands down which is my favorite, although I do have a strong bond with Alec and Magnus! All these books are fantastic in their own way. Raw, original, gritty, dark, desperate, fulfilling and accurate. That is how I would describe them. All of these books have either a HEA or a HFN and they are all teenager friendly. These books will make you laugh, cry, scream at your kindle and then jump for joy. I hope if you haven’t read them all, you will.

*Not Broken, Just Bent by Mia Kerick


 

*The Sweet Revenge of Celia Door by Karen Finneyfrock


 

*The Leech series by James Crawford

{Caleo book 1, Jack book 2, and Nolan book 3 coming soon}


 

*The Finding Our Way series by Jayson James

{Finding Our Way book 1, Tormented Discovery book 2, Drifting book 3}


 

*Waiting for Forever series by Jamie Mayfield

{Choices book 1, Destiny book 2, Determination book 3}


 

*A Broken Kind of Life by Jamie Mayfield


 

*Dumb Jock the Musical by Jeff Erno


 

*By the Creek by Geoff Laughton


 

*You Belong With Me by Jeff Erno


 

*The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Claire


 

And as an added bonus I am going to list my new favorite LGBTQ family friendly movie. White Frog which stars Boo Boo Stewart (Seth in Twilight) shows the viewer what life is like through the eyes of a young man with Asperger’s Syndrome. His rock in life is his older brother Chaz, who is killed in an accident, sending young Nick into a tailspin and tearing apart his already fragile family. When he and his slightly homophobic family learn that Chaz was gay, will they ever be able to pick up the pieces of their shattered lives?

 

Such a well written, acted and expressed film. Love, loss, ignorance and finally.. hope. It’s streaming on Netflix so if you subscribe, I recommend you watch this one. Have Kleenex close by though, you will need them.

 

Thank you so much Jayson for jumping on the blog tour bus for The Library, and hosting me on your blog today. To everyone else, go buy my books! Just kidding………. Maybe. ;-)
