Diversity Spotlight Thursday is a weekly meme created by Aimal from Bookshelves and Paperbacks! Each week you feature a diverse book that you have read and enjoyed, a diverse book on your TBR, and a diverse upcoming release.
Hi guys! Today I’m bringing you a second edition of Diversity Spotlight Thursday. I haven’t done one of these in a while, and I have been reading some pretty awesome diverse books lately that I want to feature!
I just finished this book a day ago, and while I have some mixed feelings, I really enjoyed it overall! It’s a fantasy reminiscent of Six of Crows that features a genderfluid MC! While I can’t speak for the accuracy of the representation, I thought that it was really awesome to see a non-cisgender protagonist in such a hardcore YA fantasy, which is unfortunately very rare. I’m also glad I was able to read this during Pride Month. Look out for my review soon!
To Be Read
I anticipated the release of this book for MONTHS, and even received my copy several days before the official release date. But life got in the way as usual, and I still haven’t read this super cute contemporary featuring Indian-American teenagers set up in an arranged marriage. Hopefully I can get to it soon!
I’m pretty sure everyone and their uncle’s dog is excited for this book, but I after reading so many raving reviews, I too am experiencing the hype. This releases in less than two weeks, and I definitely can’t wait to read this hilarious historical fiction with two gay protagonists!
