Our 2017 Reading Plans

Standard

Happy New Year, everyone! Another year has gone by, but I’m sure nobody is sad to leave 2016 behind. So, here’s to a wonderful 2017, filled with books, books, and more books.

Nicole and I are excited to share our reading plans for this year. Last year, there were many rich, and often one-sided, discussions about diversity in literature. These discussions have been heated, and particularly painful for me because I’m Mexican, and it’s disheartening seeing so many oppositions to something as important as diversity. Due to this, Nicole and I decided to start off 2017 on a positive note by reading only diverse books!

We’re opening this up not only to #ownvoices books, but also to books written by marginalized authors, even if said books are not about diverse characters. We’re also going to read more books by women authors. So, there will be a lot to choose from. We’re hoping that we can both widen our perspectives about different cultures, sexuality, and everything in between.

You can join us on this if you want. Nicole and I will try to tweet about our reading over on our blog’s Twitter account. Go follow us there and feel free to tweet us your favorite diverse books! Later on, we’ll make an update of the books we’ve been reading and recommend our favorites.

Let’s make 2017 a better year!

Hi! This is Nicole and Isis, and we will be running this awesome book blog. We're both aspiring authors, which means that we do a lot of reading and writing, so we hope you enjoy our posts! Currently, we're both co-writing an urban fantasy novel, as well as writing our own individual fiction novels. Basically, we're both constantly writing. But in order to write better, one must read.
