#DiverseAThon TBR

Hi Book Lovers!

Today I am just making a quick little post to inform you that I will be joining the #DiversAThon hosted by some amazing BookTubers. The hosts for this Read-A-Thon are Christina Marie, Joce, Monica, and Whitney, and I would definitely recommend going check out their original posts to learn more about this Read-A-Thon if you are interested in joining.

As you may be aware, there was some tension on twitter regarding diversity, and I am not going to go into detail about this but ultimately diversity is wonderful and needs to be celebrated more! This Read-A-Thon is aimed at doing just that and celebrating diversity in literature. With that I will be reading as many diverse reads as possible during the week period starting the 12th of September 2016 and ending on the 19th of September 2016.

The wonderful hosts have set up a Google Document of Diverse Book Recommendations, so if you are struggling to find new diverse books to read, feel free to jump on and have a look!

With all that being said, below is my TBR for the #DiverseAThon!
