Better after the Book | Book Blogger Hop


Happy Saturday, Readers!

Here we have another Saturday where I manage to post a book blogger hop. For more, check out The meme at Coffee Addicted Writer.

This week’s question comes from Rubina at Booklove:

Do you ever feel like you have emerged better for reading a book?

My answer:

Absolutely yes. In the past few years, I’ve made a point to read more books by Latinx authors because of the area in which I live and work. That turned into reading more books about characters of color written by people of color. I wanted to be a more compassionate and understanding person to people whose experiences and cultures are different from mine. That, and avoid asking as many ignorant questions as possible.

The books that also make me better are the ones that reflect my own experiences, especially those that remind me that it’s okay to be who I am.
