Radclyffe U-Haul I'm fairly confident that Rainbow Rowell isn't a mlm so Carry On is not ownvoices


message 2: by Alex (new)

Alex I know someone else mentioned this, but in what universe is Carry On ownvoices?

I can't remove other people's votes, so idk what that person's doing

Elle (ellexamines) I know no one can edit this list, but a couple of notes for readers:
One of Us Is Lying is not, to my knowledge, ownvoices.
Will Grayson, Will Grayson is by two authors, and though some of the rep is ownvoices, some is decidedly not [and not particularly good, in my opinion].
Labyrinth Lost is ownvoices for latina rep, but not necessarily for bisexual rep - I don't think the author has said anything online?

Currently, item #44 and up are all definitely ownvoices, so that might be a good place to start?

sdjlsdjlfd I know I wish I could change it some people really messed up the list

annob Hi Natasha, as the creator of the list you should see a link at the bottom of the Edit List page which says 'remove particular books'. From there you can delete books from the list (but not individual votes). Let me know if you are unable to find the link, and I (or other Librarian) can help with the needed removals.

PS Great list btw :)


message 7: by Hunter (new)

Hunter Simon vs. the Homosapians' Agenda; One of Us is Lying; and Red, White, and Royal Blue are all not own voice.
