Hey everyone! Happy December! Hard to believe it’s almost the end of 2016 already. Today I’m coming at you with most of my December TBR. Originally I had planned to catch up on some ARCs but I was scrolling through my Twitter feed and this particular post stuck out to me. I immediately clicked on the hashtag to find out more. From what I could gather it was a reading challenge to read marginalized books. Eventually I found the original source of the hashtag and confirmed that that was indeed the case. Read the original post here.
Basically from December 1st through January 1st, you read books written by marginalized authors (marginalized people includes groups like women, the queer community, people of color, disabled people, muslim and jewish people, etc.). Have fun and share what you’re reading on Twitter and Instagram using #readthemargin. I will also be doing a weekly check-in with this challenge about what I’ve been reading and any books I’ve added to my TBR that would qualify for this challenge.
I’ve been having a pretty slow couple of reading months lately so I’m not sure how many of these I will read but it’s always nice to have some options. For this month I will just be reading books that I already own but haven’t read yet. These are the books that I will be reading from this month.
