Books With LGBTQIA Asian Protagonists – #ReadDiverse2017

When I created the original post for #ReadDiverse2017, I promised to provide monthly lists of potential books to read with specific types of representation.

For example, LGBTQIA Asian readers who are seeking fiction with LGBTQIA protagonists can simply Google “Books With LGBTQIA Asian Protagonists” and immediately find what they’re looking for. You won’t be surprised to hear that there are not many book lists dedicated to these specific marginalizations.

Read Diverse Books Year-Round November Link-Up

November’s Read Diverse Books Year-Round feature is the penultimate one for the year. I considered continuing it into 2017, but I may do something else entirely. I haven’t decided on what yet, but what I don’t want this feature to feel repetitive. I’ll keep brainstorming and hope to find new and creative ways to encourage people to read widely and diversely.

My last link-up was another successful one, with 45 reviews in total! I want to once again thank all who participated. Keep doing great work and reviewing diverse books!
