Hi readers, and welcome to my third week of Diversity Spotlight Thursday that was created by Aimal @ Bookshelves & Paperbacks. The point of the meme is to every Thursday feature three books that follow these points,
- A diverse book you have read and enjoyed.
- A diverse book that has already been released but you have not read.
- A diverse book that has not yet been released.
If you are interested in joining the meme, you can read the rules and see more of how the meme works here.
A diverse book I’ve read and enjoyed
A diverse book I’ve read and enjoyed is Scarlett Epstein Hates It Here by Anna Breslaw. This book is seriously so underrated. It’s about a Jewish girl with Puerto Rican heritage. She is a fanfiction writer and after her favorite show is canceled she starts writing fiction online about people in her life. Scarlett has the most amazing personality and she learns so much throughout this book. If you haven’t checked this contemporary YA book out yet, you really should. Find it on Goodreads and Amazon.
A diverse book released and on my TBR
A diverse book that’s been released but I haven’t read yet is The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli. This is one of my most anticipated reads of 2017 and though I already own the paperback I haven’t had time to read it yet. I have heard nothing but good things about this book and I love how inclusive and cute it seems to be. I can’t wait to devour it a hot summer day when I have some time over. You can find the book on Goodreads and Amazon.
A diverse book not yet released
A diverse book that is not yet released but I cannot wait to read is Little & Lion by Brandy Colbert. As soon as I read the synopsis for this one I knew I had to have, and I had to read it. It seems like a really complex story about a black bisexual Jewish girl named Suzette who is crushing on the same girl her brother is falling in love with. Based on everything I have read, this book is just as amazing as it looks. Find it on Goodreads and Amazon.
