As I said on the main fiction page, as a lesbian, I don’t read a lot of fiction involving gay men. I’ve steered myself towards reading and reviewing more when I find a book with a story line that is interesting to me. Obviously, I’m not going to gravitate toward reading a lot of gay smut so this isn’t going to be the site for you gents that are looking for that. Even on the lesbian side of things, I lean toward stories that are less romantic or erotic and instead contain high drama, action or suspense.
Just below are the fiction books I have personally reviewed. Below those are a list of the 10 most popular works of gay fiction (as rated by readers) in June 0f 2011 before I really started to review gay fiction. Some of those books are still quite popular. For those of you that have an Amazon Kindle book reader, you might want to check out the page on this site that is devoted to the current top 10 gay fiction and lesbian fiction books for the Kindle. That page will be updated at least twice per month.
