I enjoy reading diversely and helping other readers find books that represent them. I am in the process of cleaning up my tags so that they are the most streamlined as possible so that you can easily search the tags below if you are looking for books with specific representation. Clicking on the keyword will bring up all of my review and recommendation posts that fall into that category. This page is a work in progress, so please excuse the mess!
Tags are (slowing) being added here.
The greatest thing about reading is that you are able to travel and experience the world from your favorite reading spot, and reading diversely not only ensures that more diverse books are published but also breeds empathy and respect for people different from you.
If you are part of an underrepresented minority, diversity in media is even more important. For too long the publishing industry has catered to and published the voices of dominant culture (white, cisnormative, able-bodied). It is long overdue that new voices and experiences are being represented, and I will continue to lend my voice to boost these reads.
Everyone deserves to see themselves represented. For more information on why representation matters, visit this post.
