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.)
- Anyone with a blog, Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr… can take part.
- Use the banner above and write an entry post for the #AZDiverse Readathon. (or tweet your list, post it on instagram, whatever you'd like!)
- Readathon will start on June 30 and end on July 5, 2016.
- You must choose a diverse book to read during the readathon.
- You can choose to have your readers vote for the books you will read for the readathon OR you can list books that you want to read.
- Leave your link in the linky below!
- Tag your posts and updates with #AZDiverse
- Sit back, relax, and READ ON!
Dahlia Adler has an awesome resource for finding good representation LGBT lit on her website, so you might like to use that as a potential starting point.
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!
Are you planning on reading during the next week? Make it diverse! ;) Do you have any recommendations? Do you fancy taking part? (There might be some giveaway action coming soon - just putting that out there...)
