#DiversityDecBingo TBR

As I’d mentioned earlier this week, I’m participating  in #DiversityDecBingo, which starts tomorrow! I’d like to thank the awesome bookstagrammers/bloggers that are hosting this, because it such a great way to promote reading diversely. I’m being atypically realistic and not attempting to complete all the squares in the bingo card, mostly because I’m travelling for the next couple of weeks and won’t have a lot of time to read. Also, my TBR is out of control as it is, and I just requested a bunch of ARCs because I’m a masochist like that, so I need to reign it all in.

After a ton of hemming and hawing, my sister intervened and picked this column for me.  (I can’t decide anything to save my life.)

The best part about these are that they’re all either ebooks I own or digital copies from the library, which means I can probably try and knock them out while I’m travelling. Five books in two weeks, I think I can handle it.

I’m also super excited to see what everyone else is reading, because I’d love to read more books in all of these categories. Meanwhile, if you have any suggestions for any of the categories on the bingo card, I’d love to hear about them!

November 28th, 2016:It’s Monday, What Are You Reading?

bookdate

It’s Monday, What Are You Reading? is a weekly meme currently hosted by The Book Date. It’s a place to meet up and share what you have been, are and about to be reading over the week, and add to that ever-growing TBR stack.

You guys, I did it. I finished A Little Life, literally thirty seconds before I starting writing this post. Oh. My. God. I’m dead. I’m numb from the pain. I’m epicly hungover. I don’t even know, I don’t even know.

I also managed to read and review Lucky Boy, devoured The Weight of Feathers, and finished This Bridge Called My Back. So, basically, all I have are a (figurative) mountain of library books that I must read and return. These I’m saving for my trip in a few days- I’ll be travelling a bunch and using my kindle as a primary source of reading material is a pragmatic choice. 

In the next few days, these are a couple of books I’d like to finish:

Ooh also, I’m participating in #DiversityDecBingo which is being hosted by a bunch of bloggers/bookstagrammers that I interact with on twitter. If you choose to participate, you can follow the hashtag on twitter where there are a bunch of recs from various people. Join me!
