As a book influencer, I have seen quite a few books that turned into book lists. Even I can't read them fully because they are just so boring. However, Bibliophile: Diverse Spines went so far above and beyond. It had drawings of stacks of books instead of a long list of black and white titles. It was amazing! The book also had very short little blurbs about some of the books, and it was very easy to select 10 reads. If you want to see what books I selected, check out my feed! Overall, this was simply the best "book list" book that I have come across. *Thank you, NetGalley, for a free copy of this book in exchange for my fair and honest opinion.

    Are you one of those readers whose reading list is dominated either by white authors or by your country’s authors? (Really? In 2021? What world do you live in?) If yes, it’s high time you take corrective action. If no, kudos to you. And here’s a book to ensure that your horizons expand even further.

(Really? In 2021? What world do you live in?) If yes, it’s high time you take corrective action. If no, kudos to you. And here’s a book to ensure that your horizons expand even further. One brilliant bookish line that this book takes inspiration from (and even mentions in the introduction) is an upgraded version of Grace Lin’s famous Ted talk moral: make sure your bookshelf is both a window and a mirror. We must read to see two kinds of worlds: our own, and the ones we can’t imagine. We must read to see ourselves reflected, and to get an insight into other people’s lives. That’s why we must stop “whitewashing” our bookshelves and fill it with vibrant colour. And if you don’t know where to begin on this quest, this brilliant book will provide you ample inspiration. (And a great deal of perspiration too, because your TBR is going to go haywire after reading this! 😄) As the title suggests, the book is like a one-stop list of books by BIPOC authors from across the world. As the cover suggests, these book suggestions come to you in the form of illustrated spine stacks, organised by book genres, with each stack containing about 25-30 book titles! But this isn’t all. In addition to these awesome spine stacks, you will also get interesting book-related content such as writing rooms, libraries, book stores, literary influencer recommendations, cover art, and so on. A lot of this secondary content is America-centric, but the rest of us still get enough meat to chew upon. It was an insightful experience to hear from BIPOC authors, influencers, bookstore owners, cover designers, and various other bookish people from varied backgrounds. The suggestions cover all possible genres from fiction to nonfiction, prose and poetry. I never expected it to include even cookbooks and essay collections! The range of genres included is mind-blowing and enough to satiate the most stringent of bibliophiles. I had assumed that this will be a very quick read, but I never expected the book spine stacks to motivate me to such an extent. I felt like taking an in-depth look at each cover/spine illustration and check out the book on Goodreads. Thankfully, more than half of the featured book spines were already present in my TBR, thank God for small mercies. So the only main negative point of this book is that your TBR is in grave danger. But I won’t be docking any stars for this.😁 This will be a great coffee table book in any bibliophile’s house, and a wonderful gift for every woke bibliophile who wants to ensure that his/her reading is diverse in the true sense of the word. Thank you, NetGalley and Chronicle Books, for the ARC of the book in exchange for an honest review. *********************** Join me on the Facebook group, Readers Forever! , for more reviews, book-related discussions and fun.

    One of the problems with reading a book that suggests good books is that you end up wanting to read all of the books! Especially when there are great books you've already read next to books you haven't heard of yet, it makes you want to immediately go to and start reading these new amazing books!

    I'm completely biased because I contributed a small bit to this book. However, this book is objectively good in the work that it does making sure that Black and Brown readers and authors from around the world are centered, heard and uplifted. It's encyclopedic at it's core and a book that is meant to be revisited over and over again as you work your way through the rest of the books in your library.

    like many self-identifying 'bibliophiles' (aren't we just book simps in this day and age?), i have a soft spot for books about books. i dove deep into bibliophile last december and adored it, and diverse spines basically does the same thing - but better, because of its drive towards documenting and recommending the deviations and the distinctively different (if you track trending hashtags, you'll know the top-notch tag that is #diversespines). assembled in book form, diverse spines is a riveting like many self-identifying 'bibliophiles' (aren't we just book simps in this day and age?), i have a soft spot for books about books. i dove deep into bibliophile last december and adored it, and diverse spines basically does the same thing - but better, because of its drive towards documenting and recommending the deviations and the distinctively different (if you track trending hashtags, you'll know the top-notch tag that is #diversespines). assembled in book form, diverse spines is a rivetingly fact-filled reference that'll bring you to old faves and fresh finds, recent releases and more retro reads, and all the rich many-sidedness in between. filled to the brim with background and biography on authors both famously renowned or flying under-the-radar, beloved bookshops, and bookish history, diverse spines fills in the blanks with added bonuses on illustrators, book influencers and bite-sized industry insights - with just as many superb drawings in that stunningly scrawly, scratchy style. a fun, breezy must-read whether you're on the market to buff up your bookshelves or just browsing to mix things up a bit 📚 thank you to netgalley and chronicle books for kindly passing on this arc! 💫

    I love the idea of this book, the art work, the book suggestions grouped by genre, the book store suggestions along with Little Free Library profiles and even writing rooms. I added lots of great books to my TBR and remembered some great titles I had forgotten about.

    I love this book. I love the layout using the bookspines of all the books I want to read. I love the discussions of different books by different authors. It invites the reader in such a compelling way to consider each book. I also love showing the art done for different book covers and how much goes into that.

I am sure it has been corrected for the future ereader. But I had a good bit of trouble with this. Some words were on different pages and to be honest…hard to find. But, like I said, I am sure this has been corrected in the final copy. Need a good reference for future reads….THIS IS IT! Grab your copy today!

    This is a great starting point for diversifying a reading list. I was pleased to see I had read a lot of the authors listed and was pleased to add a few more titles to my TBR list. It was pretty focused on very recently published books with just a few older titles here and there.

    I received an ARC of this book via NetGalley. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. This was such a beautiful highlight of the bevy of brilliant books written by authors of color. It covers the classics, and then gives you so many more new and lesser-known works to pick up as well. There are gorgeous illustrations, thoughtful recommendations from authors and bookish personalities, and even spotlights on POC-owned bookstores. I will definitely be picking up a hard copy for my bookshelf.

I felt as though every description was informative and captured my attention, and I deeply enjoyed the process of learning new things about writers I was already familiar with, and the process of learning about writers whose work I had yet to discover. Overall it was a pleasant, joyful reading experience and I look forward to purchasing a hard copy of the book to pick up and flip through over and over again. It really is the perfect gift for any and every book lover. I cannot recommend it enough. Oh, and I absolutely need to take a bookstore tour to visit each of the amazing locations highlighted in this collection!

I knew some of them, but there were still loads of them that I didn't know and added to my lists! I loved that the authors didn't recommend only "literary" adult novels but also non-fiction, SFFF, cookbooks, thrillers, children's and YA books, and so on!! It made me want to broaden my reading zone, even if it is quite broad already! I, of course, loved that it was diverse, but on multiple levels! 1) diverse because the books are all written by BIPOC authors of different origins; 2) diverse in its format: there are different sections, like "Authors recommend", "Booklovers recommend", but also "Beloved Bookstores" or sections about a certain genre! So, to conclude, a great book to discover tons of works by diverse authors! I can only recommend it to everyone!

No Brainer Holiday Gift For Book Lovers Now I know that book lovers are picky about books they get as presents. Usually you should air on the side of caution by just giving us a gift card. But in this case, you might have a solid gift book on your hands here. I am reviewing this from a digital arc. I have already told my husband that this is one that I want for Christmas. But here is your warning: buy now! Because…supply chain issues are rough right now. Required Reading For Bibliophiles This book should be a required asset and on all bibliophile’s book shelves. Some people see themselves as well-read. But have you stopped to ask yourself if you are widely-read? If your answer is hesitant, then you need to check out this book. It is an awesome reference for so many biblio-related topics. It covers bookstores, book lists, book recommendations by authors and bookstagrammers, influential book people and more. You Learn Something New Everyday I pride myself at being somewhat widely read, but I learned so much from this book. There were facts and book recommendations that I had never even heard of before. That is why I recommend it not just as a coffee table book but as a reference book that you actively and frequently refer back to during your reading journeys. Also, if you ever hit a reading slump, all you have to do is whip this baby out and you will definitely find something to inspire you! Bookstore Road Trip The book showcases bookstores owned by BIPOC. As a I was reading, I thought what a cool road trip idea! Instead of visiting national parks (which is cool) I could visit as many Black-owned, Indigenous-owned, Latinx-owned and POC-owned bookstores as possible! The Art Jane Mount’s art is phenomenal! I love her illustrations of book covers and spines. I was first introduced to it when I came across a coffee mug that she had designed. It is currently on my Christmas list as well. The book stack illustrations in the book are my favorite. Check out the full review on my website, www.cocoawithbooks.com . Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for providing a digital review copy of this book. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

    I honestly thought this book would be about the development of book spines, but this turned out to be excellent and incredibly informative (and also incredibly terrible for my TBR). Having an e-galley does not do this book justice and I’m tempted to buy multiple copies as holiday gifts just to pass on the cute artwork and sheer details that accompany each work. I received a free copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

    Nice collection of titles to help readers find new to them books. I do wish some of the older comic books and graphic novels by diverse authors had been included, as well as some more books in translation beyond the already well known ones.
