At the moment it feels like every man, woman and dog are talking about diversity and representation in novels. Specifically YA novels. It’s true that a lot of young stories are being improved by own voice authors, and authors who are willing to put themselves on the line to talk about a character that might represent a minority. However, that’s not always the case.
We’ve done a lot of tags on this blog now, but one we haven’t done is the I Am The Reader Tag. We loved the idea of this tag because it’s not all about the books. Tags are fun because you get to choose different books you love (or hate) to represent the questions asked. However, this one is all about yourself and about you as a reader. It goes a little more in depth to you as a person and why you read. We loved doing this tag very much and we hope you enjoy getting to know a little more about us!
