I was initially worried that I wouldn't like this book, it's the first I've read with aro-ace rep. I had nothing to worry about though, it was perfect and I found myself relating to so much.

ShyBookOwl I actually also just finished the first book I've ever read with ace rep. Every Heart a Doorway (fantasy horror). I loved it though. #DiversityMatters 🎉 2y

This was so much fun! A late 1800's western caper featuring man-eating hippos and a wonderfully diverse cast of characters; a variety of ethnicities, sexualities, genders, body types, etc. Such a action-packed, violent delight. I bought the 2nd book, Taste of Marrow, IMMEDIATELY and I'm gonna go dive into it now. 😆💖🌿

AlaMich It was pretty fun! TBH I think my favorite thing was the descriptions of their hippos and how they behaved. 😊 (edited) 4y

Nightmare Magazine, October 2015 (Queers Destroy Horror! Special Issue) | Chuck Palahniuk, Sunny Moraine, Wendy Wagner, Lucy Snyder

I lovelovelove Nightmare magazine. Each issue has at least one story that makes me regret reading home alone. They actively support diversity in horror, and I've found great new to me authors like Nadia Bulkin, Tananarive Due, and Maria Dahvana Headley. #spooktober #horror #diversitymatters

ReadingOver50 Sounds awesome I will have to look for this 😄 5y

Compiled a TBR pile to help pull myself out of this post-election funk. Books the focus on environmental, Christian, LGBT, immigrant, Muslim, feminist, and foreign policy issues. #imstillwithher #diversitymatters #overit

A little ashamed of myself tonight... Just looked back at the notebook I've been keeping of books I've read since January 2013. In that time I have read 343 books - and only 8 were non-fiction... #librarianfail

brilliantglow A few months ago, I created an excel spreadsheet to analyze my reading habits and discovered that 90% of the books I'd read were by white women from the U. S. I usually don't pay much attention to who the author is so I was kind of shocked by this. Needless to say I've been diversifying since. #diversitymatters 6y
Johanna414 @brilliantglow I'm definitely trying to be more of a well-rounded reader, but it's easy to slip into that comfort zone... 6y
brilliantglow @Johanna414 too true! It takes constant effort to stay out of the comfort zone. 6y
LastSplash @Johanna414 Still!...343 is quite a feat! 6y
Johanna414 @LastSplash one of the perks of being a librarian- I can make the argument that I'm "reading for work" 6y

Found this at the library after seeing it on @bookriot 's Litsy. Excited about a book set in the contemporary Middle East! And by a Muslim female author! #readharder #diversitymatters
