If you’re bookish and on twitter, you’ve probably seen #DiverseDecember hashtags pinging about. In case you haven’t, Diverse December is “a celebration of books by BAME writers.” It started after conversation about the lack of diversity in this year’s World Book Night choices (and UK publishing in general) began on twitter.

@DiverseDecember has been tweeting and retweeting all of the recommendations on the hashtag, so there are so, so many. I managed just those four, but I’ve got a massive to-read list. Yay!

Did you do #diversedecember? What are your favourite diverse reads?
