This idea has been a long time in the making, so I’m very excited to finally be able to share it with you all!
I wanted to find more Own Voices book bloggers to follow, and I thought a tag would be an ideal way to do this – and to uplift the Own Voices book blogging community at the same time.
The rules are simple:
- Link back to the creator: Florence @ Miscellany Pages so I can see and support your post.
- Answer the five questions below.
- Tag some more amazing Own Voices book bloggers to participate!
Any book blogger who identifies as Own Voices can participate, even if you aren’t tagged!
- What does being an Own Voices book blogger mean to you?
- Share your top three books by Own Voices authors.
- Is there a book in which you have felt most seen/represented? If so, tell us about it.
- What is one thing you wish people outside of your Own Voices community knew? (This could address people who are white, cisgender, straight, able-bodied, etc.)
- Share a blog post that you’re really proud of!
