Twelve favorite diverse books read in 2018: 12/25/18
One of my on-going reading goals is to diversify my reading and blogging. Not just more books featuring characters who aren't like me, but are also written by people who aren't like me. By life me I mean, white, middle class, American, and from California. More broadly speaking, I want to be able to recommend books that are beyond the usual white, male, cisgendered author list.
I live in a community that is evenly dived between Black, Asian, Latinx, and White. The majority of the books I purchase and read I end up donating to the local schools or other local organizations. It makes good civic sense to give books that relavent to the community.
As of today I've posted 359 reviews. 203 of them count towards the diverse/inclusive goal. That's 57% of the total reviews, just above my 51% goal. Likewise, I've read 334 books and 193 books count towards the goal. That represents 58% of my reading. With that in mind, it was delightfully hard to select twelve favorites (one from each month).
