An excellent collection of essays - fresh writing, highly readable. An important book if for no other reason than to open people's minds, remind us what a diverse world we live in but bring home that things like humour, wanting to connect, & the magic of a good haircut, are universal. But mostly just a great read! Varaidzo, miss L, Darren Chetty & Salena Godden were highlights. 👏🏼 #DiverseAThon

My next #DiverseAThon read. I'm loving it so far. Currently away with no kids = excellent reading time! 👯

celtichik This book is always hanging out on the new reads shelf at my library, as in I don't think it's ever been checked out. Looks interesting though! 3y
Tonton This is great! 3y
britt_brooke I'm reading this now, too. Took me a minute to get into but I'm enjoying it! 3y

Here's my #diverseathon round up for the week. I didn't get as many books as I wanted read but I'm not that worried about that's as what I did read was excellent and I'm devoted to reading #ownvoices all year anyway. I've loved looking at everyone else's posts and I'm glad I got to learn about new books and meet some new littens on here too. Can't wait for the next one!

whatthelog Omg good books!! 3y
Aquedita Glad you joined the party :) It didn't go too great for me either since I was traveling and working remotely. Next time taking time off work. 3y

Day 8: Wrap up- I'm calling my second #DiverseAThon the #BlackGirlMagic edition. I read five books: two memoirs, one romance, one YA, and one SFF, all written by black women.

Black girls can be the heroine, not the sassy sidekick. Black girls can be in love. Black girls have full, interesting, lives and are capable of telling complex stories with themselves at the center.

Ready to continue reading #ownvoices all year.

Mariposa_Bookworm What's the book in the bottom right corner? Is it by Beverly Jenkins? 3y

WhatDeeReads @Mariposa_Bookworm NP! My review is lower down on the #DiverseAThon thread. I just finished it this morning. 3y
Weaponxgirl Such a great selection! And hell yeah to reading #ownvoices all year 3y
WhatDeeReads @Weaponxgirl Thanks! I really enjoyed them all. I'm dedicated to #ownvoices. If the book doesn't represent some sort of marginalization, I'm moving on. 3y
Weaponxgirl @Lucky_LaDee it's been something I've been working on for about 3 years now. I've now got a point I'm quite happy with but there's always room for improvement. I love how you had so many fun looking books! 3y
whatthelog Great choices!! 3y
