Wonder Crush Wednesday is a weekly post by yours truly where I choose to discuss the wonders of diversity. We all have Superman and/or Superwoman within us. The right representation is needed to make sure that everyone knows that. These posts aim to highlight diversity in both literature and other aspects of life. Feel free to adapt this on your blog too!


In an effort to promote diverse reading, some amazing bookish people, came together to make a 36 box bingo sheet with diverse topics. The aim is to promote and challenge diverse reading.
