Diverse Young Adult Book Club

DiverseYA

One of my 2016 resolutions is to read more diversely! Despite my best effort, my mood reading meant that I missed out on a lot of great diverse titles last year. I asked around on twitter, and it seems people were interested in a monthly book club – so here’s how to join in!

DiverseYABC-About

#DiverseYABC is a monthly twitter based book club focusing on titles of diversity: whether it be LGBTQIA, race, gender, ethnic, or cultural. Follow the hashtag and join in on tweeting their photos, thoughts and opinion on the current month’s title. There will be a 1 hour chat at the end of each month dedicated to the discussion of the month’s title and good old socialising.

DiverseYABC-How

Anyone with a twitter account can join by following the #DiverseYABC hashtag. Hop on it and use the hashtag to start chatting about the current title, or suggestion for future book club titles.

Bloggers can also add their review of the January title to the link up below!

DiverseYA-Title

The current title for January is Simon VS The Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Abertalli – this was decided by 155 votes over Twitter polls.

Even if you have read the book, you can still join in the discussion at the end of the month! In fact, I beg you to join us!!

Twitter Chat Date:  Sunday 31st January, 1PM AEDT. Tentative, I noticed this is when most of the bookchats (that I’m awake for!) occur on twitter.
