#DiversityDecBingo TBR


The Readathon Event


Hey, all. So, if you don’t follow me on Twitter (psst, you should), you might not know that a few friends and I are hosting a diversity readathon event in the month of December. Called the ‘Diversity December Bingo,’ it’s a team-venture that runs from December 1st – December 31st, 2016. It’ll be a month full of diverse reads where you can read books written by marginalized authors, or books about characters belonging to marginalized groups, and maybe win a prize while you do so.

So this is how it works. From the 25 squares below, you choose one line – this line can be horizontal, vertical or diagonal. You read one book from each category in the line you’ve chosen, and once you finish your 5-book challenge, you’re entered into a giveaway. More details on the giveaway will be coming up soon (follow Twitter for more updates, or simply track the #DiversityDecBingo hashtag!)

If you decide to join, leave a comment down below with a link to a TBR post, tweet or Instagram post, and I’ll add your name to this post so people can come find you. Also, you can use the #DiversityDecBingo hashtag on social media to keep track of others who are participating, come up with some ideas for your own TBR and keep up with all the awesome diverse books out there.


My TBR

I chose this particular line because I have not read nearly enough books with any of these aspects; I have yet to read a book with a main character who is a native. I’m ashamed to say that I have had abysmal exposure to f/f relationships in YA. I’ve read only two books in the past with biracial main characters, no books with neurodiversity, and just one book with an asexual character. Because all of the books below are already on my TBR, I thought this would be the perfect line to finally get to these books:


With that, I’ll end this post. I hope you consider joining me in my very first hosting adventure, especially because it’s something I’m super passionate about. The other ladies who are hosting this with me are all inspirational and wonderful, so come say hi on Twitter (or here). If this goes really well, we’re hoping to do a bi-annual or annual event where we can get together and read diversely more and more. <3

  1. This is a great idea! I’m working on my TBR right now, but I had a question (I apologize if it’s a silly question). Mine will be diagonal, so I’ll be hitting the Free Space square. Would it be alright if I read a 5th book anyway, based off of another square? Does that make any sort of sense?

  2. This is such a fantastic idea! I wish I would have known about this before doing my December TBR… HOWEVER I will do my best to add a few books to my TBR to fit into these categories. I was already planning on reading Here Comes the Sun by Nicole Dennis-Benn which I think would qualify for a few (POC on book covers, Non-Western (real world) setting, and possibly F/F romance… ). I will do my best to participate!

  3. First of all, thank you so much to everyone for including aromantic along with asexual ♥ That means SO much to me. Secondly, I hope you enjoy Every Heart A Doorway. It was one of my favourite reads all year. I think I’ll definitely have to join in on this 😀

  4. I recently hauled Every Heart A Doorway too (by recent I mean like within the past 2 months, I believe (?) This doesn’t bode well for me if I forget when I’ve bought books but anyways). Haven’t read it yet but really want to even though it’s a lot shorter than I imagined it to be. Although this could be a total blessing in disguise as I would hope things would be on rapid fire. I hope you enjoy EHAD!
