Happy Friday, everyone! In case you missed my post a couple of weeks ago, I’m going to be participating in Hype or Like Friday from time to time. I became part of this group last year when it was created and decided to finally join in, haha. If you’re not sure what Hype or Like Friday is, check out the Goodreads group here. The short version: each month has a different theme and a popular book. Every Friday there’s a post for group members to post and then at the end of the month, everyone reviews the book and says whether or not it deserves the hype. I’m not going to be able to read the book this month, but I wanted to do a couple of the posts anyway. This week participants are sharing some of the diverse books they want to read. I could easily put dozens of books on this list, but I tried to limit it to only a few. Feel free to chime in with comments and let me know what you thought of these if you’ve read any of them!
I don’t think I’ve seen a single negative review of this book. I haven’t read anything by McLemore before (I know, a major oversight on my part), but I need to fix that very soon.
I absolutely must read this book before the movie comes out! I’ve been meaning to read this for so long now and I’m hoping that the movie release will give me the final push to pick it up.
Adam Silvera is another one of those authors that I really need to finally read. More Happy Than Not is at the top of my list simply because I own it, but all of his books are on my TBR.
I heard so many good things about this book when it first released. I’ve had it taken out from the library for awhile now, but still haven’t gotten around to it. I desperately need to change that, though!
I’ve seen surprisingly little about this book, but it sounds so fantastic. Those of you who are familiar with my blog know that I’m always looking for more racially diverse books to read, so that’s one of the reasons this is on my list.
This is on my radar for similar reasons as American Street: it’s written by and about a woman of color, plus it sounds amazing. I might have to get this next time I go to the library.
I’ve wanted to read this ever since I heard it was an Asian Snow White retelling. I mean, really – what’s not to like about that?!
I honestly cannot believe that I still have yet to read this book. I was dying to read it before it even released last year and then I won a copy from Goodreads. I still haven’t read a book that has a trans MC and is written by a trans author, so I definitely need to pick this up.
What diverse books are on your TBR?
