In my last year’s reading, I visited 27 countries on the page. Of the books read, 36% of them were penned by writers of colour, including 29 books by indigenous authors. Of the authors in my stacks, 63% identify as female, which goes toward addressing the imbalance of reading in my school years. In 2018, there were also 47 illustrated volumes, 14 collections of stories, and 31 translated works. This year, I’ll continue to read diversely and voraciously. For more about 2018? Here. And 2019? Here. And 2020’s plans? Here.
