Hi readers out there in the galaxy, welcome to my fourth Diversity Spotlight Thursday post. I haven’t done a post like this in a while but I’m so excited to be back. This meme was created by Aimal @ Bookshelves & Paperbacks and the point of the meme is to every Thursday feature three books that follow these points,

  1. A diverse book you have read and enjoyed.
  2. A diverse book that has already been released but you have not read.
  3. A diverse book that has not yet been released.

A diverse book I’ve read and enjoyed

A diverse book I’ve read and enjoyed is A Crown of Wishes by Roshani Chokshi. This young adult fantasy is honestly one of my favorite reads of the year. The book has both lyrical writing and amazing characters. The main characters Vikram and Gauri are from enemy kingdoms, where Vikram is courageous and witty and Gauri is headstrong and has a hidden soft side. If you want a book that has an amazing “enemies to lovers” story, with adventures and characters to invest in, A Crown of Wishes is really a great choice. I fell in love with the banter, the love story, the world, and the writing. You can find the book on Goodreads and Amazon.

A diverse book released and on my TBR

However, a diverse book released but I haven’t read yet is We Go Together by Carla de Guzman. It’s a young adult retelling of William Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing and is about Bea and Ben who used to be together and in love but are now are angry, bitter rivals who can’t seem to get along. This book is a #romanceclass novel (and you know how much I love #romanceclass) and on top of that, the “enemies to lovers” trope is always amazing. I’ve had this book on my Kindle for ages but I’m excited to read it soon. Find the book on Goodreads and Amazon.

A diverse book not yet released

Down by Contact by Santino Hassell is a diverse book not yet released that I’m dying to read. Down by Contact is the second book in The Barons series. The reason why I’m so excited for Down by Contact is that I loved the first book, Illegal Contact, and I have a strong feeling the sequel will make me feel the same way. We were introduced to Simeon, one of the main characters of Down by Contact, in the first installment of the series and I’m already in love with him. I can’t wait to see this “enemies to lovers” romance evolve, 2018 could not come sooner. You can find this book on Goodreads and Amazon.

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.

A diverse book I’ve read and enjoyed

A diverse book I’ve read and really enjoyed is Assassins: Discord by Erica Cameron. It’s action packed, has a bisexual main character and lots of other diverse side characters. It’s like an action movie only female driven and way better because girls are just more badass. If you want a diverse young adult book that’s going to surprise you then you definitely have to read this one. 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 Not Your Sidekick by C.B. Lee. I have the paperback and everything, but there is not enough time and too many books, am I right? Seriously, though, I can’t wait to read Not Your Sidekick. My friends have nothing but praise for it and I know it’s right up my ally. I mean there are both superheroes and villains. Have any of you guys read it? You can find it 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 27 Hours by Tristina Wright. I have heard so many amazing things about this book, how diverse it is, how epic it is, how inclusive it is, I mean the list goes on forever. I’m fascinated by space (my blog name didn’t give it away now did it) and a book about marginalized teens in space is a must have. As soon as this book hits the shelves I’m grabbing it. Find it on Goodreads and Amazon.

A diverse book I’ve read and enjoyed

A diverse book I’ve read and enjoyed is Unicorn Tracks by Julia Ember. It’s a story about Mnemba, who works for her cousin’s safari business, and Kara who visits from a far away land with her father to study unicorns. These two girls grow closer through a wild journey filled with unicorns, mermaids and evil poachers trying to destroy what they hold dear. I love this book so much, it has badass and vulnerable girls who will do anything to protect each other and the unicorns. Find it on Goodreads and Amazon.

A diverse book released and on my TBR

A diverse book already released that I can’t wait to read is The Sun Is Also a Star by Nicola Yoon. I’ve heard nothing but good things about this book, and it’s currently on the New York Times bestseller list and has been for weeks. The synopsis has completely lured me in and I can’t wait to read about Natasha’s and Daniel’s story and see where their lives take them. Have any of you guys read it? I just know I have a mighty need. Find the book on Goodreads and Amazon.

A diverse book not yet released

A diverse book that hasn’t been released yet that I have a mighty need for is I Believe in a Thing Called Love by Maurene Goo. Not only does the book have the most gorgeous and amazing cover, and a synopsis that has you begging for more. I mean a senior who tries to learn how to flirt and get a boyfriend with the help of k dramas is honestly just amazing. Also, the line “boat rescues, love triangles, and fake car crashes ensue” from the synopsis makes me even more curious and eager to read it. Find it on Goodreads and Amazon.
