Diversity Bingo 2017

The second reading challenge I’m participating in this year is Diversity Bingo 2017. (You can read about my first reading challenge here.) I hope this challenge will help me read more diversely without focusing too much in one area (i.e. white gay men).

As of the original date of this post, I’ve read four books (with only one overlap with my other reading challenge). I’ll keep updating this post as I complete more books for this challenge!

Side note: I had an extremely difficult time finding an #ownvoices book with a pansexual main character. Then I found this post by Dahlia Adler/LGBTQ+ Reads about digging into an author’s sexuality when they may not want to publicly discuss it. For this category, I will be picking a book from Dahlia’s list and counting it as another great opportunity to read diversely.
