#diversitybingo2017 – 2017 reading challenge

Hey!

during December 2016 I participated in the #DiversityDecBingo, a read-a-thon encouraging us all to read more books with diverse characters.

I had a lot of fun participating in this read-a-thon so I was really excited to see that they decided to make year round reading challenges to continue promoting diverse books and authors.

  • Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo – sci-fi/fantasy with disabled main character
  • Seven Ways We Lie by Riley Redgate – Pansexual main character

I will have updates on my Twitter as well as an update every three months on my blog!

      Thank you! Yeah I don’t either, I’m just going to read a lot of diverse books (which is all I’ve really been able to do for the past month) and see which square they fit in. I don’t want to read a diverse book because it’s ___ I want to read a diverse book because it seems interesting the fact that its diverse is a bonus!
