This December I’ll be participating in the #DiversityDecBingo challenge. For those of you who don’t know what this is, I’ll explain it briefly and then link you to a twitter thread which will explain it further if you want to find out more.
This read-a-thon is hosted by eight amazing people from December 1st to 30th. The whole read-a-thon has been made to promote and encourage the reading of diverse fiction/non-fiction. The goal of the read-a-thon is to complete a line, whether it’s diagonal, horizontal or vertical, on the bingo sheet.
Taryn explains this so much better in this thread, she also includes a lot of extra details which I have left out.
I am planning on completing either one of the row and columns in grey, hopefully, both!
|non-western cultural fantasy||non-binary main character||refugee main character||poc superheroes||chronic pain sufferers|
|demisexual main character||Muslim main character||trans main character||diverse non-fiction||poc or interracial M/M|
|mental health awareness||Asian main character||free choice||own voices||non-western (real world) setting|
|poc on book covers||poc with curly hair||disabled main character||SFF with LGBTQIA+ main character||pansexual main character|
|indigenous main character||F/F romance||biracial main character||neurodiversity||asexual or aromantic main character|

These books may change throughout the month, and I might complete more of the challenges than I’ve mentioned here. However, I will be doing weekly wrap ups on my blog and I will have daily updates on my Twitter if you’d like more frequent updates.
If you’d like to find out more about this read-a-thon, get some recommendations for some of the boxes and find out more about this read-a-thon you can see the tweets under hashtag #DiversityDecBingo.
Let me know if you are going to be participating in this read-a-thon and what line/s you’re planning on completing.
