Thank you to Emily for tagging me! I don’t think I’m going to do too well with this as I haven’t read many diverse books, not because I don’t want to, I just haven’t yet.
- The Diverse Books Tag is a bit like a scavenger hunt. I will task you to find a book that fits a specific criteria and you will have to show us a book you have read or want to read.
- If you can’t think of a book that fits the specific category, then I encourage you to go look for one. A quick Google search will provide you with many books that will fit the bill. (Also, Goodreads lists are your friends.) Find one you are genuinely interested in reading and move on to the next category.
- Everyone can do this tag, even people who don’t own or haven’t read any books that fit the descriptions below.
