#DiverseReads2017 TBR

My third, and I promise final, year-long reading challenge for 2017. It’s a diverse challenge hosted by Mishma from Chasing Faerytales and Shelly from Read.Sleep.Repeat. Each month has a theme, although you don’t have to use them. I’m going to use each months theme, but I might end up reading them a little out of order. There’s a great recommendation list that you can check out.

This TBR could completely change if I can’t wait and read something early but it’s a rough idea.

January– diverse folklore/mythology
Huntress by Malinda Lo (Chinese Folklore)

    1. You totally should! 🙂 The recommendations list for this challenge is amazing – there are so many and it’s so organised. I’ll be using it as a general reading list as well as for this challenge I think 🙂


    1. There are so many really interesting and awesome sounding books out this year — I’m so excited. I might move Labyrinth Lost up my list because I got my copy for Christmas and it looks so good!


    1. Haha, the two challenges work so well together, I’m sure they will 😉 I love the variety of the prompts they’ve come up with and that reading list is a thing of beauty.

    1. Don’t feel behind! I just like to plan lol. I think Spindle would be ok. It’s not own voices or a marginalised author but I don’t think this challenge is being specific about that. You could always drop them an email and ask?
