Diversity Bingo 2017 Progress & TBR

I’m pretty sure most of you know about the Diversity Bingo 2017 challenge. This year, reading books for every single one of these squares is my main reading goal, and I thought I’d give you all a little bit of an update on how I’m doing so far.


read so far

I’ve also read some books that could technically fit some of the squares, like The Red Pyramid for MC of Color in SFF, but I feel like another book would be a better, more perfect fit, so I’m not using those books.


Clearly I still have a lot of work to do. I’ve already thought about what books I’m going to read to fill the rest of the squares, and I thought it’d be fun to share my sort-of-TBR with you! You know, the thing that a lot of people already did months ago, lmao.
