All of the information I’m sharing is what I’ve learned from the Federal Trade Commission’s website here. And you can actually email firstname.lastname@example.org with more questions. I did it and found the response to be very quick and extremely helpful!

I love using my blog to keep track of my own reading habits. I recently joined a Book Club on Instagram called Diverse Classics that, obviously, celebrates Diverse Classics. The creator (never_withouta_book) posted a list of 100 Diverse Classics that she put a ton of time and energy into creating. Much of the diverse classics I’m hoping to read came from that list but there are certain authors I would like to read every book by so I’ve made a few additions.
You should all give Diverse Classics a follow on Instagram! I have linked them.Read More »

Unfortunately, I kept forgetting throughout the year to check my progress so I did not complete it even though I read nearly 150 books this year, most of them by women. Anyway, here’s how I did:Read More »
This year, reading with The Diverse Books Club has been a ton of fun. It has opened up my reading tastes in a lot of ways and introduced me to books I never would have picked up otherwise. I’m so glad to have been a part since the beginning.

I have to say, I’m pretty disappointed with my reading this month. I am not very good at following TBRs and I got into a reading slump at the end of the month. Any reading is good reading but I was planning to read more books by Indigenous authors. I only read one though I am a chunk through The Round House by Louise Erdrich.

This will be my first year participating in Dressember. That means I will be wearing a dress every day in December in order to raise awareness about modern slavery and fundraise to combat it.Read More »
