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:
- 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

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

A Diverse Book that Has Not Been Released
I’ve only read one book by Adam Silvera, but it made me eager for more. This book sounds really good, but maybe sad too. (I also think the cover is really beautiful.
