#DiversityDecBingo Challenge

Happy December 1st!! Oh wait…that ship has sailed, it’s already December 2nd! Happy December 2nd!!

If you can’t tell, my life is running a day or two behind schedule at the moment. And therefore, so are my blog posts!

I recently saw that Aimal @ Bookshelves and Paperbacks , as well as a few other bloggers, are hosting a Diversity December Bingo Reading Challenge, and I decided to participate!

This is how #DiversityDecBingo works: participants choose one line on the Bingo sheet – horizontal, vertical, or diagonal – and read one book from each category on that line. Once you finish your 5-book challenge, you are entered into a giveaway! You can follow the challenge by tracking the #DiversityDecBingo hashtag,

I have decided to do one of the vertical columns.

These are the books I have selected for the challenge:

  • PoC Superheroes: Ms. Marvel, Volume 1 by G. Willow Wilson
  • Diverse Non-fiction: The Algebra of Infinite Justice by Arundhati Roy
  • #OwnVoices: Brown Girl Dreaming by Jacqueline Woodson
  • SFF w/LGBTQIA+ Main Character: Labyrinth Lost by Zoraida Córdova, or Timekeeper by Tara Sim.
  • Neurodiversity: Mockingbird by Kathryn Erskine

I hope you will consider joining myself and others on this fun literary challenge! It will be a month full of reading books by marginalized authors and/or marginalized characters.
