At the start of the year, I said that one of my biggest goals was to read more diversely, and that included a whole bunch of challenges. We’re nearly at the end of January though, and I think I’ve done pretty well! February should be full of reviews for these books, because y’know, effort and stuff.
I didn’t mention this in the post, because I only decided last minute to participate in #DiverseAThon over the week of the 22nd. Honestly, I didn’t do as well as I wanted to, and that was mostly because of lack of planning. I read Rebel of the Sands, with a POC protagonist, and Sculpting David with a bi protagonist. Hopefully when it comes around again I’ll be more prepared!
My main two were the diversity bingo, and Read Diverse. The second involves reviewing to get points, so like I said earlier, February is going to be all about that.
I think I did pretty well with my bingo though! I read four books, and for a year long challenge that’s not bad at all. I’ve nicely marked them on here, and I’ll go into more detail when I review them.
My goal for February is to get further out of my comfort zone with my diverse reading. I think all of these were on my tbr already, so I wasn’t especially reading them for the sake of reading diversely. I’ve read a couple of books now with Muslim characters and culture, and I’m finding in fascinating, so I’m excited to keep reading more of those! If you have any recommendations for any of the boxes, please let me know.
How is your bingo going? Are you more up to date on your reviews than I am?
