Diverse-A-Thon!

I've been meaning to sign up for a diverse reading challenge this year. I just have to get organized! But to help me along is the #DiverseAThon, starting today and running all week. 

Need more info? Check out the DiverseAThon post at Read Diverse Books, where I first saw it... then was reminded by all the Diverse-A-Thon TBRs being posted by various blogging friends today. It was started by a group of BookTubers, and is being hosted by 5 of them this year. Since I don't play along in that arena I'd missed it there, so thanks to all the bloggers sharing it so I can join in. 

Here's my DiverseAThon TBR for this week, a few titles from the books that I have sitting on my get-to-soon stacks. I hope I can share these, if not this week, then soon after.

One Hundred Days of Rain / Carellin Brooks




Embers: One Ojibway's Meditations / Richard Wagamese 


Love, Anger, Madness / Marie Vieux-Chauvet

    1. Thanks! Through other readers' lists I've also discovered the graphic novel Monstress -- so good!

  3. Looking forward to your thoughts on Love, Anger, Madnesss in particular. (I've been wanting to read it for ages, but the library copy is so badly damaged; I was just pawing at it again last week, actually, wishing they had the budget to replace the poor, sad thing.) Happy Diversithoning!

    1. Funny -- my copy is a slightly beat up library discard that I rescued -- still very readable though and not so damaged as to make the reading unpleasant. Would be nice to be able to replace all the tattered volumes, for sure!
