Diversity Spotlight #6

Diversity Spotlight Thursday was created by Aimal @ Bookshelves & Paperbacks.  (The link takes you to her original Diversity Spotlight post, where she talks about her motivation for creating this meme.  You should check it out.)

As I was searching for another meme to participate in I was especially drawn to Diversity Spotlight Thursday.  I do love the idea of sharing books with a wide range of characters, but it was also because I’m always on the hunt for reading material that showcases people who are different from myself.

The way it works is simple.  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


I loved that K.J. Charles writes realistic M/M Historical Romance novels, but it was an extra surprise when she included an Indian man as one of her main characters.  I loved it, particularly how Clem feels among his peers and that he sought out a place to submerse himself in Indian culture, despite living in England.

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


My daughter just bought this for herself, and I have to admit this looks really good.  I’ll definitely be reading this LGBT story.  I’m hoping I really like it.

A Diverse Book that Has Not Been Released


I’m automatically pulled in, by the cover alone.  This is just as gorgeous as Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe.  I can’t wait to get my grubby little hands on this one!

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 love that you do Diverse Thursday, it’s so awesome! Whenever I see these posts I love to learn about new books 😉 I really want to read the unreleased one (ughhhhh why do I have to like that one?!) I agree the cover is so cute!


      1. No! I had surprisingly never heard of it before, although I just googled it and it a) whoa it has won so many awards b) the synopsis was amazing. I am totally reading this soon. (And I’m not just saying that because I feel like I have to, it looks so good!! ;))


  2. One Man Guy sounds really good! I’m so excited to read Inexplicable Logic of My LIfe! Ari and Dante is one of my favorite contemporary reads so I have high hopes for it.


  3. I like this Diversity Spotlight. I’ve been looking for a new meme to do as well, so I may have to give this one a try. I really want to read The Inexplicable Logic of My Life too. I’m with you — that cover is just amazing!
