Happy Tuesday, reader friends! Today’s topic for Top Ten Tuesday is our Fall TBR lists, so I naturally decided to feature the diverse reads releasing in Fall 2021 that I can’t wait to read! These books have diverse characters and/or are written by authors of color. Fair warning: there are a few more than 10 because there are quite a few great looking books releasing this Fall!

Today’s Top Ten prompt from That Artsy Reader Girlis all about the jobs held by the characters in the stories we read. I asked this question of my fellow Diversity Between the Pages contributors and together we created our top ten list of favorite jobs held by diverse characters.

Here at Diversity Between the Pages, we love books. We love reading books, talking about books, writing books, buying books, anything involving books. However, today’s Top-Ten prompt from That Artsy Reader Girlasks about our non-bookish hobbies.
To help you get to know us better, I asked the contributors to Diversity Between the Pages what their hobbies are. You know, the ones that don’t involve books.
“I don’t understand the question.”

Like I said, we all love books and many of us love books so much they are even a part of our careers. So it took some thinking on our part to come up with non-bookish hobbies that aren’t only ones our favorite characters happen to enjoy.
Here are our top ten answers:
Crafting. The variety is endless: sewing, quilting, hand-embroidery, knitting, crocheting, making earrings
Cooking/Baking. Personally, my creative side often emerges in the kitchen.
Top Ten Tuesday is turning 10! This week’s topic is any past topic, so I chose Most Recent Additions to my To-Be-Read List.
As an avid reader, I am always adding new titles to my TBR list. Sometimes I choose a book because I’ve heard a lot about it. sometimes because it’s by a favorite author. And other times because I simply intrigued. In light of recent events in the United States, several authors, publishers, and bookstores have provided lists of Authors of Color and specifically Black Authors. What a treasure trove! And what an opportunity to support these writers! I scoured these lists looking for new-to-me authors, especially in genres I particularly enjoy. Here’s a sampling of the books I’m excited about:
I love short stories and novellas. It’s a wonderful way to be introduced to a variety of new authors, many of whom also have full length novels. One of my favorite short story series is the Novella Collections produced by Barbour Publishing. These three novellas are at the top of my TBR List.
All the authors thus far are new-to-me authors, so I saved this final addition to my TBR List for someone who is not a new-to-me author. In fact, she is a friend of mine and one of the most amazing women I know. Her children’s book Different Like Me releases in August and it is at the top of my list to buy for my two kiddos. I cannot wait to read it.
