Read Diverse Books Year-Round — August Link-Up

By this point, many of you should know the drill.

This is yet another link-up for my Read Diverse Books Year-Round monthly feature! Yes, it’s here to stay. And I have cool things planned for September, so be very excited.

The winner for July’s draw is Brooke @ The Broke Book Bank. Congrats! I have already received your response and will have your book shipped out to you soon. See you next month!

July had more entries than June, which was a wonderful surprise for me. Thank you to everyone who participated. Please keep reading diversely and keep talking about these books on your blogs. Word-of-mouth is very important to help books sell and we definitely want more diverse books to get noticed. 

Something new: I created a “Link-Ups page that you’ll find in the main menu of my blog. This is where I will be adding all future Read Diverse Books Year-Round link-ups. My hope is that this page will be a repository of as many reviews for diverse books as possible. If you’re tired of reading my book reviews, then you can read the ones other bloggers have written right on that page. I’ll update it monthly, but I will need you to keep reviewing and participating for my plan to work, so please help me out. 🙂


Read Diverse Books Year-Round

The rules:

If you read and review a qualifying book, you will immediately be placed in the drawing to win a free book of your choice from Book Depository!

Eligible books:

  1. A book written by a person of color*
  2. A book by or about a person with a disability 
  3. A book with an LGBT protagonist or about LGBT issues 

*This category also allows for Indigenous/Native peoples and non-European international authors. If you’re not sure, ask me!

Ideally, the books will be #ownvoices but it’s not a requirement.

The Book Depository delivers to over 100 countries, but please make sure that your country is eligible for shipping. I don’t want any one to be disappointed.

Only reviews published in August will count.
