Top Ten Thursday #36

Hi everyone!☺️

Because of the great success my first Top Ten Thursday post about diverse books was, I have decided to write up a second one. 2017 is the year where many of you (including myself) have vouched to read more diversely, so hopefully with these recommendations, you’ll be able to get a kick start towards that goal!

Without further ado…



What’s the diversity?: One main character is Jamaican, and the other is Asian.

As I write this, The Sun is Also a Star was my last read, and it was amazing! I would recommend this book in any way, shape, or form.👌



What’s the diversity?: Dyslexia

Jolien @ The Fictional Reader recently wrote a very interesting post about dyslexia in YA, pointing out how learning disabilities are not represented enough in literature, and I have to say that I agree. She also mentioned adding this book onto her TBR, and I applaud her decision- this book was beyond amazing, and I don’t have a learning disability myself, but I do think that dyslexia was represented well.



What’s the diversity?: The main character is deaf.

I loved every word of this amazing book. It was just too good!☺️



What’s the diversity?: LGBTQ+

This wasn’t my favourite book as I don’t really enjoy limited omniscient narrators, but this is definitely still one to check out for its great morals.



What’s the diversity?: The main character is deaf and has two mothers.

Thank the universe for this super diverse book! Plus, it includes graffiti, which makes it even more unique!



What’s the diversity?: The main character has severe social anxiety.

This book had a great representation of social anxiety, and I think more people should definitely read it to get a glimpse into what these people have to deal with every day.



What’s the diversity?: The main character is of colour.

The Secrets series is amazing. The best thing is that you don’t have to read all the books in order! 



What’s the diversity?: It revolves around characters with OCD.

Another great representation of mental health! This story is as unique as a snowflake, and I’m surprised that more people aren’t reading this!



What’s the diversity?: LGBTQ+

Read this book not just for the Oreos, but for the amazing characters, plot, and writing style! You’re welcome.☺️



What’s the diversity?: LGBTQ+

Rainbow Rowell never fails to impress me with her diverse books, and Carry On is no exception! It was a great book to kick start my developing love for fantasy.

So tell me, have you read any of these books? Opinions? Any more diverse books you’d like to recommend? Should I make a part three? Let me know in the comments below.

Au revoir!💜
