Got included on a Lambda Lit request to recommend Best LGBT books of 2011, and while I have my favorites, I'm curious to hear what yours are. One request: if you recommend your own book, please recommend another writer's as well (I abided by my own rules, below and recommended several others). Nothing with only secondary/minor queer characters, please.
Bring on the recommendations!
 Edited:
Here's a list of what got recommended out on LJ, via email plus my own recommendations, limited by a having a first publication in English in 2011. Huge thanks to everyone for the suggestions and please send me more!
