With the #DiverseBookBloggers hashtag gaining traction on Twitter, we at 100storyreviews.com want to ensure readers are able to find a variety of diverse book bloggers all in one place.

Learn more about the hashtag by checking out our Storify.

If you are interested in being included on our list of #DiverseBookBloggers, send us a link and a short description of your blog in one of the following ways:

What is a diverse book blogger? #DiverseBookBloggers co-founder @_diversebooks lists the following criteria in his blog post “A Call To All #DiverseBookBloggers.”

  • #DiverseBookBloggers are not white, straight, cisgendered, able-bodied bloggers who write predominantly about authors of that same description.
  • They ideally blog about #ownvoices authors and advocate diverse reading habits for all. This includes white bloggers who write about diverse literature regularly.
  • They find themselves in the LGBTQ+ spectrum or are people with disabilities and blog about books that represent them when possible.
  • The hashtag more generally includes any person who is LGBTQIA+, a person of color, or a person with a disability who also is a book blogger. But diverse reading is preferred.

  1. Hey! Found this thanks to Janani. Could you please add me? My blog: the reading desk.wordpress.com.


  2. Hi there!

    My name is Zina! I tend to write about diversity in YA lit, romance, and fantasy genres (specifically on intersectional feminism, queer representation, and race). I also talk a ton about fandom, comic books, and comic book related media. Additionally, I have a monthly series called Urban Fantasy 101 that looks at intersectionality and diversity fails in the Urban Fantasy and Paranormal Romance genres.

    My main blog is Stitch’s Media Mix (stitchmediamix.com/blog) but I also tweet about diversity, literature, and fandom on my twitter account (@stichomancery)
