When it comes to essentials for staying in, naturally, for a bibliophile, books will top the list. I’m no exception. I actually get most of my reading done during commutes and while waiting. If I’m in the subway, in a queue, waiting for a bus, am early for a meeting with friends, you can bet I’m reading. Although, my favourite place to read is my bedroom.
In light of the ongoing debates on diversity in the book blogosphere, in the book tube community and on bookstagram, Jeann from Happy Indulgence thought it important to talk about when “diversity” isn’t actually diverse. Many of us know that a lot more can be done in YA literature to represent diverse voices.
Once upon a time, not so long ago, I declared that reading is social. I don’t think it’s possible to become untethered. Neither do I wish to become unplugged from the social aspects of reading. However, at times I do feel somewhat conflicted about it. Once in a while pre-publication hype wears me out. That’s why part of me yearns to read off the radar (again).
