While I’m a blogger, I’m not a book blogger. I still read quite a few books a month – ranging from picture books, chapter books, MiddleGrade and if time permits some grownup fiction too. Kids books are far more imaginative, funny and hopeful than grownup fiction. Amongst the children’s fiction, I read all sorts of books – a majority being written by or about #POC and most often #ownvoices. So when the #DiverseAThon was announced, I thought I should participate.
Also this year’s #DiverseAThon is happening while I’m on holiday and therefore my list is a little longer than normally practical. Moreover, I’d be at the Jaipur Literature Festival for part of this time and I’m worried I’d be tempted to change my TBR, worse extend the list, leaving me very little time to wash, eat or sleep. So if you find me disoriented and completely incoherent (fine, more than normal), it’s not just because of the inauguration. Although I’d rather live in the world of my books than today’s alternate reality.
So without further ado, here is my TBR.
First I’ll start with picture books.
Then here are the novels I’ll be reading.
