Definitely check out Aimal’s page for the full rundown, but basically you select three books to highlight each week, using this format:

  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 Have Read and Enjoyed

Six of Crows

I know this is a given, but this duology is very diverse.  Leigh Bardugo did a wonderful job including a wide variety of people in Six of Crows and it’s a large part of what made this one of my favorites.


A Diverse Book That Has Already Been Released, but I Have Not Read

I hear this is about Jamaican and Korean immigrants, and while I already wanted to read The Sun is Also a Star realizing that it’s also incredibly diverse makes me more excited.  I’m definitely bumping this one up.


A Diverse Book that Has Not Been Released

I know I’m not the only one waiting for this book.  It couldn’t be published at a more relevant time, and I just know it’s going to explode.  I knew that I wanted this book badly as soon as I read the synopsis.


Are there any Diverse books that you’re looking forward to reading, or one that you loved?

About Birdie

Don’t look for her in any bar, club, crazy raging party, or anywhere there may be a large gathering of strangers. She’s more likely to be found tucked into the corner of the couch watching one of her favorite shows, or preferably under a comforter with her current novel.
