Diversity December Bingo Challenge!

Hey happy readers.

So last week while browsing twitter I came across the coolest challenge for December and thought I’d share it with you all, and give some suggestions for books to read**.

Diversity December Bingo was created by a group of bookstagrammers (@novelparadise, @aimalfarooq, @headinherbooks, @bookwormwanders, @thebooksbuzz, @ohbrekker and @rhaegardied) to both encourage everyone to read diversely this December but also to give us all a fun game of bingo while we’re at it! It takes place throughout December 1st – 31st.

From the picture below you choose a standard bingo row (horizontal, vertical or diagonal for all you bingo rookies) and try and read a book to corespond with each. There’s even an incentive to be entered into a giveaway if you get your bingo!

As the picture says, use the hashtag #DiversityDecBingo to announce your participation and keep up with the game as we go.

(** Scroll below the picture to see my examples for each category, I haven’t read all of these and had to do some research to find some so if any of these are incorrect/problematic please let me know!)
