So I am taking part in the Diversity on the Shelf reading challenge hosted by My Little Pocketbooks.
It runs all of 2015 and the rules are simple.
1. Read diverse books.
(about and by POC)
Haha, well there's a little bit more. Here's a more detailed description straight from the source:
Pick a Level
Choose how many diversity centered books you would like to add to your “read” shelf in 2015:
1st Shelf: Read 1-6 books
2nd Shelf: Read 7 -12 books
3rd Shelf: Read 13 - 18 books
4th Shelf: Read 19 -24 books
5th Shelf: Read 25+ books
Once you pick a level you can go higher and read more books but you cannot go down a level.
So, I will update this list as I read more books. I am choosing 2nd Shelf level and trying to get at least 12 books read, but I would love to read more. Here are the books I plan to read (when I finish I will put up the date I read it and possibly a link to a review I write):
1. Prophecy by Ellen Oh
2. The Shadow Hero by Gene Luen Yang (illus. Sonny Liew)
3. I Love I Hate I Miss My Sister by Amelie Sarn
4. The Fire Horse Girl by Kay Honeyman
5. To All the Boys I've Loved Before by Jenny Han
I am also taking part in the Dive into Diversity Challenge. And I will be posting co-reviews with Books Are Bread as part of our new diversity book club.
