Marginalized Book Bloggers You Should Be Following

Since I started blogging, I’ve read many, many blogs and found a lot of lists of favorite blogs, but in the year and a half, I have read zero large lists of marginalized bloggers. (I’m sure a few exist, but none that I’ve come across or seen being promoted.) That’s where today’s post comes in. On Twitter, I asked for bloggers that were a part of a marginalized identity to link their blog if they wanted to be included so that I could compile this post.

This is nowhere near a comprehensive post. Instead, it is only the beginning, and I hope it grows and grows.

Why are marginalized book bloggers important?

We can read books with characters of the same marginalized identities and promote them with even more fervor because we saw ourselves in them.

We can read books critically and point out flaws and problematic aspects in the representation.

…And a multitude of other reasons that this post is not here for. Marginalized book bloggers are important. Supporting marginalized book bloggers is also important. That’s why this post is here. 

Many marginalized people have intersections of their identities. I’ve included them under all headings their identities are a part of that they mentioned.

  1. Thank you, this is great 😀 I’m going to go through the whole list tomorrow.
    I would love to be included in this list, if it’s not too late 🙂 I have been struggling with the chronic illness M.E. for many years now.

    My blog is MiRakelBooks.com ^_^

  2. This is such an epic list! Thank you so much for sharing these blogs with us all, I am definitely going to check out the ones I’m seeing for the first time.

    I’m a “marginalized” book blogger too – I’m a Muslim, South African book blogger whose racial status is “coloured”.

  3. This post is amazing and I’m so excited to go through and follow all these blogs! I didn’t see when you were asking for blogs on Twitter, but I’m chronically ill, and post about my illnesses quite a bit on my blog (and I’m trying to do so even more to spread awareness), it would be amazing if you could add my blog to the disability list. My blog is https://storiesandspoons.wordpress.com

  6. WOW! What an amazing list! Thank you so much for compiling this.

    I don’t know that I consider myself a “book blogger” necessarily, but I am focusing on diverse books in my reviews, and I’m also a mental illness advocate and I frequently post about living with depression. I would love to be included and I’m always looking for more friends 🙂

  8. Thank you so much for this list. It’s really beautiful to see so many people–a small part of the community perhaps, but an incredibly important one.

    I don’t know if I’m entirely comfortable self-identifying as marginalized, in part because I know I’m privileged in other ways. But it’s really lovely to see other queer and neuroatypical people especially on this list, and I know I’ll be exploring the list this weekend. Thank you so much for sharing ❤
