Diverse December

We’re cruising through the eleventh month of the year, which means.. It’s almost time to say goodbye to 2018 and, with that, welcome 2019. But that won’t be happening without one last monthly reading challenge!

Last year, I dedicated December to all the diverse books and this time it won’t be any different. I quite liked reading a whole array of books showcasing different diverse aspects and I know some of you agree with me. So why change a good thing, right?

What do you do?
◊ Post a blog post / tweet / whatever saying you’ll be joining me in reading as many diverse books as you can or own! You can also comment with your TBR or post a picture on Instagram; whatever floats your boat.
◊ Share your list of diverse books and show us which ones you’re going to try and read.
◊ If you’re sharing your updates on social media, use #DiverseDecember so we can follow up on each other!

It isn’t necessary to dedicate the whole month to my monthly challenges. Our TBR’s are all through the roof so it can already be a challenge to read only one or two books that fit this month’s challenge.

Me, of course!
◊ Dani @ Mousai Books
◊ Lara @ LaraMaynard
◊ Lily @ Lili’s Blissful Pages
◊ Rachael @ Bath and Books
◊ Destiny @ Howling Libraries
◊ Jade @ Drink Coffe and Read Books
◊ YOU?

Remember, it doesn’t matter how much you read. As long as you have fun reading.
And as long as we can tackle our TBR’s, bit by bit.

And uh, don’t forget about the Short-a-thon at the end of December either!

  1. This sounds like a great monthly theme! I wanted to use the entire month of December to catch up on ARCs + read short books, so I don’t think I’ll go out of my way to participate – but most books I read have LGBTQAI+ protagonists anyway, so I suppose that’ diverse? It’s such a vague word 😀

    1. Thank you!! ❤

      Definitely counts as diverse! There've been so many discussions on the subject but I think the most "general" definition of diverse is simply "representations that don't really fit your own"? I'm simply taking any and all POC MC's, all kinds of [mental] illness rep, LGBTQIA+ rep and whatnot as "diverse", really. :')

    2. I think the definition of diverse is more like “representations that are not ablebodied, white and allocishet”. So LGBTQAI+ would definitely count by that definition, but it is what I usually read, so it’s not really going out of my comfort zone or anything. 😀
