2016 and Diverse Reads: BIG LIST OF BOOKS

by - 10:36 PM

To be quite honest, our initial post - that we made a while ago - had like so little books in it. And we know that there are like so many more out there. So today we're giving you a bigger list of books with diversity (either cast, disability, lgtbq+, mental disorders, and more). Plus some preorder/non-preorder giveaways and requesting earlier copies for reviewing. We hope you enjoy them all!

We hope you put many (ALL!) of them in your TBRs because they sound amazing and we want them all to be honest. We're so excited for every single one of them. Some of them already came out so LUCKY! You can already purchase them via your favorite retailer, bookstore, anywhere they sell books *wink* 
Of course we're probably missing some. If you know of any others, comment with the title + author, so we can add them to our TBRs!!
