Readathon Time! #AZdiverse +giveaway!

Starting tomorrow (or whenever you're ready!), we're going to be reading diverse, and we would love for you to join us!

We're kind of letting you define 'diverse' for yourself a little bit, but here's a few ideas: LGBTQ+, mental health, people of colour, diverse backgrounds... There's a lot of cool stuff out there that's actually realistic and doesn't just talk about white, straight, cis-gender characters so I know I for one am really excited about reading more of them.

The idea to having this Readathon came from June being Pride month, and from supporting #buydiversebooks which was absolutely fantastic (thank you so much to Kate Brauning and everyone who got involved!) You can check out the Pub Hub post about it here - there are also some good links included that could help you find new diverse reads! (scroll all the way to the bottom of the page for the links.)

What I'm Reading This Week

I'm planning to reread Carry On because I finally read Fangirl! And I'll read as many others as I can, one of the books in the pic, or a Dahlia Adler book. What should I read first?You can find Ezrah's post here, go take a look at what she's planning to read!
