This year’s reading goals were to read, remember to record the books I read, and to seek out more diverse romance authors. I’m nowhere near hitting my reading goal for the year, unfortunately, but, so far, I have managed to succeed with the other two goals. While many people are starting to think of “diversity” as just another buzz word in fiction, the fact is the world is diverse. It always has been, and always will be. But, the stories that we consume in print, TV, film, haven’t always reflected that diversity. Now that authors are finding ways to bring their stories to the public, I find myself wanting to inhale all of their tales in an effort to re-shape the way my entertainment looks. Finally, my entertainment has caught up with my reality.
So, what have been some of my favorite romance reads of the year so far?
