A More Diverse Universe 2014

DIVERSE

I’ve been putting off signing up for Aarti’s A More Diverse Universe Challenge because I have no idea what I’m going to read for it! I can no longer plan that far ahead. So I’m just going to say I’m doing it and see what happens.

I think I’ll be in the mood for something spooky by then. Any ideas?

The rules are to read at least one POC book during the week of September 14-27. That’s it. Oh and probably post about it.

If you’d like to join up, see Aarti’s post and link up!

  1. I joined up already. I don't like planning that far in advance either, but I have a couple of books in mind. None of them scary. But it begs the question - do POC write scary books? All the scary books i can think of are by white men. On the other hand, spooky is not something I do.

    1. Yoko Ogawa writes scary stories, but I may have read all her creepy books translated into English already. I'm hoping to find more, I'm sure they're out there.

      Most of my favorite writers of scary books tend to be women- Shirley Jackson, Susan Hill, Daphne duMaurier. Men not so much.

  2. Isn't Helen Oyeyemi's first book (White is for Witching) supposed to be a little creepy? That might work!

  3. I love this idea, but don't think I'm going to commit to it officially. I'm in the midst of a job hunt for returning to work and worry I won't be as reliable for a little bit as I adjust going back to work ... if I get a job, of course! :)

    1. Good luck! I'm going to see about looking for work myself but I'm trying not to think too hard about it. ;)
