Dive into Diversity Reading Challenge

Dive Into Diversity

This challenge is a challenge to read more Diverse Books within 2015 and I really think diverse books is a great thing to read. They are such a great addition to the books that are already published. The variety of stories is just another reason why I love books and their stories. I want to read 7 diverse books this year and here they are...














Updates:

February: Finished Proxy


This challenge is to get people (uhhh, me) to read more fantasy! If you don't know, I am a really bad at reading fantasy novels because I just cannot get into them. Some fantasies are just take so long to read but some you just fly through. I want to read 10 fantasy novels and here is my TBR!
