Diversity is More Than Just a Buzzword
books Thu, Jan 02, 2020
Some of my college friends and I have decided to start a book club as a way to encourage us to read more and see one another more. The aim is personal growth and spend quality time with quality people who we don’t see as often as we’d like. As we were deciding which book to kick off our book club, I asked if we could read books by diverse authors. It seemed simple enough at the time, but it made me think deeper on the topic of diversity in media.

Being so entrenched in the publishing world as an agent, editor, and a writer myself, I live and breathe books. I tweet about books. I write about books. I talk about books. My life is books. And that’s the reason why I’ve given myself permission to only read the books that are right for me.
Onward to 2020!

As the year dwindles down and all the Best Of lists emerge, I’m thinking about what trends I saw this year in 2019 and what I’m expecting to see in 2020. With the new year, the young adult literature space is likely to be seeing new trends and also a solidification of some previous trends. As I wrap up 2020, I’m thinking about what worked so well in 2019—what I read obsessively, what I binged on television, and what got me talking with my friends about my current reads and the books in my TBR pile.
