#Diversiverse: A More Diverse Universe Link-Up Post!!


FIRST THINGS FIRST:  PLEASE READ THE INSTRUCTIONS AT THE END OF THE POST FOR HOW TO LINK TO YOUR REVIEW!  This will help me enormously when it comes time to organize the reviews and add them to the #Diversiverse tab.

Hooray!  #Diversiverse is HERE!  

Two weeks of gloriously diverse reading suggestions for you and yours, all so that we can work to make our world a more understanding, empathetic and open-minded place to live.

Considering that I have been barely on the inter webs at all over the past two months, I am mazed and so humbled by the number of people who have signed up for #Diversiverse this year.  Thank you to everyone who has hyped up the event.  By the end of next week, we will have countless reviews that cover an entire spectrum of genres, perspectives, and writing styles.  I cannot wait to read all of them.

I hope that when you read through the many reviews, the A More Diverse Universe mantra will cement itself in your mind:

Reading diversely may require you to change your book finding habits.  It ABSOLUTELY does not require you to change your book reading habits.

Authors all over the world write romance novels, historical fiction, social science, folktales, memoirs, poetry - everything.  You just may need to look a little bit harder to find them.  But luckily for you, there's the #diversiverse link-up post below, and the #Diversiverse tab above.  Browse at your leisure, add dozens of books to your TBR pile, come back for more when you've finished them, and enjoy!

Thank you SO MUCH for participating!  Let's flood the digital world with reviews!

LINK-UP INSTRUCTIONS:
When you add your link below (and PLEASE link to the permalink for the specific #diversiverse post, not just your blog's main home page), please use the following format - COMMAS, NOT DASHES:

Blog Name, Book Title, Author Name
(ex.  Booklust, The Book of Unknown Americans, Cristina Henriquez)

  1. Once we read and post the review online we come here and enter details in the link up, in the mentioned format , right? It's my first time participating in this challenge so want to confirm if I am getting it right.

    2. Cannot wait to check out all the many reviews that will be posted for this event! The toughest part for anyone who wants to read diverse is finding the book. Hopefully, this will add many books to many TBRs!

  3. I had planned on reading and reviewing one book, but suddenly this morning my plans were blown out of the water when I picked up and read an amazing book that I have to review instead. I'll be posting the review on Sunday.

  12. I WROTE A POST! I'm so sorry it's so late - I feel like I'm only just starting to recover and get back on track after all my September travelling. And of course I'll carry on reviewing the many things I read that quality after the event is over, and I know that's important too.

    Thanks again for organising this ♥

  13. Sorry it's so horribly late. But I just finished Timeri N. Murari's "The Taliban Cricket Club" and had to link it in. It was such a wonderful read. Thanks for organizing the event, have got some great ideas for future reads from it.
