We DID It! | Dive Into Diversity Farewell

I’m typing this by the light of my Christmas tree, while listening to the Peanut gang serenade me and I still can’t believe we’ve already reached the final post for the Dive Into Diversity challenge. This will officially be the first and last challenge I host on Rather Be Reading blog, and I couldn’t have […]

Dive Into Diversity | Intro + Sign Up

(Very special thanks to Rachel for designing the amazing graphics for this challenge!) The best parts of reading are finding books that remind you of you and learning about other people. We want to relate, empathize, and be challenged by the situations and personalities we don’t know. It makes us well-rounded people, and helps us to understand […]

Julia Anne @ Peach Print - I know I’m rather late to join, but after hearing about the Dive Into Diversity reading challenge, I knew I had to join in! Being a new blogger, this is the first reading challenge I’ll be participating in, and I couldn’t be more excited. I look forward to all the diverse books I’ll be reading from now until December 31!

Carolyn @ RIEDEL Fascination - Hi! This is far broader than a diversity theme I saw last year and I believe I declined that one because it was ‘YA’-geared. I’m 42!!!! 😉 This year I’m sticking to groups that either give me a unique way to choose my very own books, or which have international prizes and we’ve hit both here. May I also invite everyone to my three very flexible groups, with a year that runs from February 1 (and yes indeed, prizes and fun)!

My sole question for you is: women. If diversity includes a female protagonist or heroine, that’s nearly everything I read. Do you have something in mind, so I meet your mission? 🙂 https://cmriedel.wordpress.com/riedel-challenges-2015/

Tori Russle - I am so excited for this challenge and my favourite diverse book is called “The Shock of the Fall”by Nathan Filer. It’s a really great book about a boy with schizophrenia and the view point in the book is very different from any other book i read. Be warned though you will probably be crying all through the book.

December 20, 2014 - 9:52 am

Chloe @ YA Booklover Blog - Love this! I just signed up for the challenge. I’m very happy that not only will I be pushing myself to read more diverse books, but there’s no set number that I have to stress about. Thank you for the giveaway!

My fave diverse book I’ve read has to be Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green.

December 17, 2014 - 11:38 pm

Dianne - So far, my all-time fave diverse book is TWO BOYS KISSING by David Levithan. <3

December 17, 2014 - 11:28 pm

Dianne - I signed up, 2015 hectic-ness be damned! So excited for this. Love the idea. <3

December 17, 2014 - 3:54 pm

Yahong - Oof, and to answer the question… probably my all-time fave diverse book is Alaya Dawn Johnson’s THE SUMMER PRINCE, which is a world-changing sci-fi about art, life & sacrifice set in futuristic Brazil — this book 99.56% literally killed me. It’s the kind of book I want everyone in the world to read, haha.

December 17, 2014 - 3:52 pm

Yahong - Love this idea! I’m really glad to see that after #WeNeedDiverseBooks hit Twitter & Tumblr the ball is still rolling.

Sandy S. - I love this idea and I am excited to read more diverse books in 2015. I can’t wait to see more titles as I am sure I am missing some great reads out there. My all time favorite diverse book….that’s a hard question, perhaps I can’t name just one because they all have affected me and changed me. These are the ones I would highly recommend that I have read, ones that I would save in a fire, preach from a pulpit and tell you once you have read them, they will change you. They are The Sweet Revenge of Celia Door, Beauty of the Broken, Lies We Tell Ourselves and Something Real.

December 17, 2014 - 8:09 am

Rebecca @ Reading Wishes - I’m so excited! I can’t believe it’s here! So glad you guys are my challenge co-bloggers 🙂
