LGBT+ Books to be at Book Expo America

Book Expo America is taking place in Chicago this year, and thankfully, I am able to attend. This is probably going to be the last year I can go - at least for quite awhile, so I'm really hoping to enjoy myself. Get some great books, meet some authors, and of course, meet some amazing bloggers that I've been so honored to talk to and get to know online!

Today though, I wanted to share the LGBT+ books that will be available at BEA this year. This doesn't mean the authors themselves will be there or signing these books, but their ARCs will somehow be available. I'd love to get copies of all of these, but we'll see!

Last Seen Leaving by Caleb Roehrig

All of these are linked to Goodreads so you can check them out and add them to your to-read list, especially if you are not attending BEA! I'd love to do a giveaway on here if I can get an LGBT+ novel from BEA. If I had to choose one book from this list, it would be History is All You Left Me by Adam Silvera as I read and LOVED his debut More Happy Than Not last year. But again, I'd really love all of these!

If you happen to know of any other LGBT+ books that will be at BEA, please do let me know and I can add them to the list! Any of the above look good to you though?

When I first looked at that list, I am Jazz immediately out at me, but really all those titles are engrossing! Great picks!

So jealous of you getting to go to BEA! I thought with it being in Chicago, closer to where I live, I would get to go. But with it being while school is still going on, I can't take all those week days off. :-( Can't wait to see your posts about how it goes!

I hope you'll have fun at BEA! And you're able to get your hands on the books you want.

I really hope you manage to grab all of these books, Lauren!

I didn't know about It Looks Like This, so I have added it to the TBR right away. Thank you for sharing that title!

It would be awesome to see a recap of your time at BEA to live vicariously through you, haha.

I'm not sure of other LGBTQIA+ titles at BEA, but you might want to look for the new David Levithan book - You Know Me Well, which he co-wrote with Nina LaCour. It might be too close to publication date for ARCs, but you never know!

I hope you're having a great time :D
