Giveaway 1 winner: TJ @ My Book Strings
Giveaway 2 winner: Ottavia @ Novels and Nonfiction
Read Diverse Books Year-Round returns a little later than usual this month because I wanted to time it with Latinx Heritage Month, which kicks off tomorrow, September 15th. It’s going to be very exciting and busy month for me and my blog, but I can’t wait to celebrate with a month’s worth of content!
I want to thank everyone who contributed a review to August’s link-up, it was the most successful one yet! It may not always feel like it, but our reviews do matter. Perhaps not individually, but collectively we can make a powerful statement with the books we choose to read and discuss.
September’s link-up is going to be a little different due to it being Hispanic Heritage Month, which I will henceforth refer to as Latinx Heritage Month because I want to give the term further visibility.
The Twist: there will be two giveaways of up to $20 (USD) from The Book Depository.
Giveaway 1: The regular rules apply. Simply read and review qualifying diverse books and you’re in! However, reviews of books by Latinx authors will not be accepted. They should go in the second giveaway instead.
Giveaway 2: Limited to reviews of books written by Latinx authors only, in honor of Latinx Heritage Month. If you need recommendations, I have a reading list that will help.
Note: You may not enter the same book review in both giveaways.
Read Diverse Books Year-Round
The rules (for giveaway 1):
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!
- A book written by a person of color*
- A book by or about a person with a disability
- A book with an LGBTQ protagonist or about LGBTQ issues
*This category also allows for Indigenous/Native peoples and non-European/Australian international authors. Feel free to ask me, if you’re not sure.
The more #ownvoices books you read, the better – but it’s not a requirement.
