Ten Books That Celebrate Diversity

I think it's so important that we have diverse books, and have been meaning to write a post on it for a while. Since this weeks Top Ten Tuesday is about diversity I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to do just that!

The following books feature:
  • Ethnically diverse characters 
  • LGBT characters
  • PoC main character
1. Partials by Dan Wells


2. The Princess Diaries by Meg Cabot


3. Top Ten Clues You're Clueless by Liz Czukas


4. Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling


5. Silver Phoenix by Cindy Pon


6. Eon by Alison Goodman


7. The Girl in the Ice by Robert Bryndza


8. Butterfly Sword by Jeannie Lin


9. The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon


10. An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir

  6. Great list, lady! I was very close to putting Top Ten Clues on mine as well.
    I think I may read Stormdancer now that I loved Illuminae, but is there a triangle?? Will you DM me on Goodreads? haha

  8. Aww, thanks for sharing, Renu :) Some of these have been on my tbr list for a while, while others I'll admit are completely new to me! I must try to introduce more diversity into my reading.

  9. I've started to realize just how important diversity in books is! I'd love to add The Summer of Chasing Mermaids and Under A Painted Sky to the list :D TSoCM has a PoC MC, while UaPS has such a diverse cast. Lovely picks!
