You read that right – readathons PLURAL! I’m also going abroad this month, so I’m not going to push myself to get a bingo with both readathons (though that would be nice).
The first is A-Spec April:
Created by Jellyfable, this readathon runs from April 1st-14th. April 1-7 will be focused on reading Asexual books and April 8-14 will be focused on reading Aromantic books. Books focused on AroAce characters can be read during either week!
I am going to try to read:
Summer Bird Blue by Akemi Dawn Bowman – A-spec character of colour, released in last 12 months, readathon group book
Chameleon Moon (maybe) by RoAnna Sylver – two or more a-spec characters in the same book, a book recommended to you
An Unexpected Invitation by Ceillie Simkiss – indie/self-published author, novella or short story
The second readathon is the Autistic Pride Month reading bingo created by Becca @ beccasbookrealm. This will be going throughout April.
On the Edge of Gone by Corrine Duyvis – ownvoices representation, queer author or representation
The Gilded Wolves by Roshani Chokshi – author of colour, queer author or representation
The Boy Who Steals Houses by C. G. Drews – ownvoices representation
The Prince and Her Dreamer by Kayla Bashe – queer author or representation, indie or self-published
Chameleon Moon and An Unexpected Invitation also have autism representation or are written by autistic authors.
Do you have any suggestions for other books with ace, aro, or autistic characters? Let me know!
