I’m sure you’ve all figured out by now that I’m not joking with this whole I-do-nothing-but-school-reading thing, lmao. But here’s the THING: these were my two December Netgalley arcs, so yay for that.
[[[i didn’t do any because i suck]]]
why I do this: I think a big problem in the book community is that the diverse books we’re all looking for are out there, they just don’t get very much attention or spotlight. In fact, whenever I mention diverse books, I’ll get a slew of comments saying “but none of those books exist” when they clearly do, you just have to look. So here’s a basic listing of rep in books I read this month in case you’re looking for something specific or just want to know if any of the books I read this month are for you.
🏳️🌈 lgbtq lead / major side chars
☀️ lead characters of color
🌸 neurodiversity, disability, trauma
- [side characters of color] Fire and Heist by Sarah Beth Durst
reminder: books not marked RTC above have all been reviewed; click on the links to find my Goodreads reviews!
- The Sympathizer by Viet Thanh Nguyen | ★★★★★ [from > a month ago]
[[[none this month yay yay yay!!]]]
[[[also none this month. sad.]]]
And that’s all for the wreck that was 2018!
