Welcome to Disability Diaries 2017
Welcome, welcome to Disability Diaries. A couple of months ago I announced that this week will be all about disabilities in books. Where I will be focusing on young adult books. Disability Diaries is not only promoting good representations but the need for both physical and mental illness.
This week from me you will be seeing reviews, recommendations posts and a very personal one. I cannot wait to share everything with you guys. Joining me as hosts this week is Ely @ Tea and Titles, Cee Arr @ Diary of a Reading Addict, Dina @ Dinasoaur, Jolien @ The Fictional Reader, and Lara @ Another Teen Reader.
The promotion for disabilities in Young Adult books is something that I am very passionate about. It’s something that I care about and want to see more of. I want to be able to pick up a YA novel and there be someone in there, that is like me. That doesn’t mean they have to have the same disability as me. However, they are also not this perfect person with nothing wrong with them. I want to be able to spread the awareness of disabilities and share more of it in YA. Create diversity in what we see and how it is portrayed.
