2016 is quickly coming to an end, and i decided to share a list of diverse young adult books that i’m looking forward to in 2017. there are so many amazing diverse books coming out next year and i’ve managed to compile a short(ish) list to share. at the bottom of this post, i’ve got some links to other blogs and lists with even more diverse books (you can never have too many).
i would really like to thank taryn (twitter/instagram) personally for making me more aware of the books that i’m reading. i’ve always thought that marginalised people are important but it wasn’t until i followed her that i noticed the lack of diverse books i was reading. of course there are many other people promoting the “we need diverse books” movement, and i thank you all for raising awareness for something that’s often overlooked.
this book meme is hosted by Taking on a World of Words. this post just answers the 3 questions below. i’m going to try do this regularly as it helps motivate me to read more weekly rather than the monthly wrap ups. if you’ve done this post, feel free to link it in the comments!!
What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?
In case you didn’t know, Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the Broke and Bookish (here). Today’s Top Ten is resolutions of 2016. I don’t normally make resolutions but this time I decided to (because there are waayyy too many books I’ve been meaning to read but never getting around to doing it). I’ve also been wanting to do the Rock My TBR (here), a reading challenge hosted by Sarah at the YA Book Traveler (here), so there’ll be a bunch of TBR books here.
Here’s my October TBR! It’s a bit short, but I’m having a reading slump and I want to see what I can do.
