Diversity Spotlight #5

Diversity Spotlight Thursday was created by Aimal @ Bookshelves & Paperbacks.

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


A Diverse Book I Have Read and Enjoyed


In honor of my daughter, I’m going to choose Tiger’s Curse.  It was only a 3 star read for me, but it was full of Indian culture and Ren and Kishan (brothers) are Indian princes.  The mythology was my favorite part of the read, and the reason I’ll keep going.

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


I believe this is on my Netgalley account, and I’m excited to read it.  I love the concept of discovering who you are, despite how other people see you.  Plus it’s an LGBTQIA YA book, which I love.

A Diverse Book that Has Not Been Released


This is another LGBT read, but I’ve been wanting to read something by Adam Silvera for years and keep putting it off.  2017 is going to be the year I read both of his books.  I know I’m going to love them.

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.

  1. I agree Tiger’s Curse had some issues ( it was a 3.5 star read for me), but I appreciated the focus on Indian culture and the mythology was definitely my favorite part as well! 😀 I think the series gets better towards the end. Great post. I’m hoping to dversify my reading list this year, so I’ll be checking out the other two! 🙂


      1. Kelsey was a horrible protagonist, and if I remember correctly, I don’t think she gets any better. Or maybe I’m just biased lol. Hopefully, you enjoy her character in the later books much more than I did!


  2. Inked Epiphanies

    I am definitely looking forward to reading History Is All You Left Me. The book had been featured on practically everyone’s blogs I know and everyone loves it!


Tell me something!
