Dive Into Diversity Reading Challenge

   I completely support the movement of having more diverse books written and published, which is why I'm thrilled to participate in the Dive Into Diversity Reading Challenge in 2015. Many thanks to the hosts Reading Wishes and Rather Be Reading blogs for hosting this challenge. 

The challenge: We want to keep this stress-free and fun, so all we challenge you to do is read and review diverse books in 2015. However many is up to you. But remember: the more you read, review, discuss, the better!

Books that count:
As for what counts as diverse, we like this definition taken from the We Need Diverse Books tumblr: "We recognize all diverse experiences, including (but not limited to) LGBTQIA, people of color, gender diversity, people with disabilities, and ethnic, cultural, and religious minorities."
