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.

Do you recognize any of your favorite blogs? If not on here, who are some of your favorite diverse bloggers? Why do you think marginalized bloggers are important? I am no longer adding to this list. However, if you are a marginalized book blogger, feel free to leave your blog link in the comments so others can check it out!

Thanks for reading!

  1. I would love to be included on this list! I honestly don’t talk much about my own marginalized identities due to a lot of the stigma surrounding them in my current location, but I’m bisexual and married to a wonderful woman, as well as dealing with a variety of mental health issues. What a wonderful list! 🙂 Thank you for putting it together ❤
