Top Ten Tuesday: Ten Diverse Books Recommendations

Hello! Yes, it’s been a while. Between YALC, Nine Worlds and work, my blogging time recently has been cut down to practically nothing. However, I am about to have two weeks off work and hopefully this will give me the push to get the posts I need written! I thought Top Ten Tuesday, a weekly meme run by The Broke and The Bookish (which has been on hiatus for a few weeks and I’m so glad it’s back!) would be a good way to slide back into regular blogging. This week’s theme is ten books to recommend for…and I’ve chosen to rec ten diverse books.

1. The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas

    1. Well obviously I highly recommend them all. Sadly I didn’t have room for my recent favourite, The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue, which is full of diversity, but I was trying to stick to own voices as much as possible. But I highly recommend that one too! 🙂


  1. Yay, I love lists like this! There are so many wonderful, diverse books in the world and these recommendations look awesome (most of them were already on my TBR)! If you like diverse YA reads, might I suggest Riley Redgate’s work? Both of her books contain oodles of ethnic, sexual and mental diversity.

    Great choices, feel free to check out my TTT list on unreliable narrators 🙂
