Read Diverse Books Year-Round – Final Edition

This really is my last review link-up, y’all! For the year, at least. 🙂

November’s post, the penultimate RDB Year-Round link-up, had 47 reviews. As always, I’m eternally grateful for your consistency in reviewing diverse books and promoting them on your blogs. I would announce November’s winner right now, but it seems I accidentally set the closing time for the link-up at the end of December 1st instead of November 30th. 

Update: November’s winner is Bogi @ Bogi Reads The World. Congratulations!

December winner: Winner Leah Rachel @ While Reading And Walking

I’m not doing anything different or fancy with December’s link up because I’m preparing for and planning the new feature that will replace it in January 2017, which is not far off at all! I have some good ideas and I can’t wait to share them with you all. I don’t want to reveal anything yet, but I hope to keep your support and participation in 2017. Stay tuned! 

For now, start adding  your December reviews as soon as you can!

  1. Quick question: I read a book titled the boy who wanted wings which was written by a white man, but the main character and his struggles are of chinese- Tatar descent. Would it count towards your diverse post? Excited to hear your ideas for next year. Hope that some will be mine 🙂

    1. If the character is LGBTQ or has a disability, then yes. Otherwise, books about people of color or about people from non-western countries must be written by people of color to qualify for the giveaway.

      Yes, I liked your advice and will be incorporating it in to some degree in the new feature, but I have other plans as well. 🙂

  2. While I don’t often participate in these link ups, I really love stalking them. I am constantly finding new books to add to my TBR. It’s dangerous, but there are so many interesting books to learn about. Thanks for keeping this going!
    That said, I can’t wait to see what will replace this in 2017. The anticipation!!

Let's start a discussion!
