It was another great DiverseAThon.Â There were lots of Twitter chats that delved deep into the discussions surrounding diversity in publishing.
So how did I do on my TBR list?
Totally cheating. I actually finished this one the day before DiverseAThon started.
On the Noodle Road: From Beijing to Rome, with Love and Pasta by Jen Lin-Liu
Signal to Noise by Silvia Moreno-Garcia
Didn’t even look at
The Pulse Between Dimensions and the Desert by Rios de la Luz
NeuroTribes: The Legacy of Autism and the Future of Neurodiversity by Steve Silberman
I’m overwhelmingly angry at the autistic person in my life right now so the idea of picking this one up right now makes me want to spit and cuss.
Black Titan: A.G. Gaston and the Making of a Black American Millionaire by Carol Jenkins
Finished this story of an amazing man who I had never heard of but should have.
The weekend that diverseathon started I drove to Tennessee and back. That was about 15 hours of drive time so I listened to lots of audiobooks.
Beneath the Surface: Killer Whales, SeaWorld, and the Truth Beyond Blackfish by John Hargrove
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I didn’t know at the time that I downloaded this that the author was a gay man. He talks a little bit about needing to remain closeted at the time of his hiring because of homophobic bosses. It is just a brief mention and the rest of the book deals with whales. Amazing book though. I don’t give out 5 stars easily. Review to come.
I Almost Forgot About You by Terry McMillan
I also finished this one this week. Laugh out loud funny at parts.
Her Nightly Embrace by Adi Tantimedh
I finished this audiobook at the last minute about a British-Indian PI who happens to see gods.
