Diversity Spotlight Thursday – 25th August

screen-shot-2016-11-01-at-1-11-38-pm

This is a new meme that was created by Bookshelves and Paperbacks. I thought this meme was really awesome. The main point is to share books that are diverse and also from diverse authors. I myself don’t read many diverse books but I am trying to read more! So please if you did this meme comment so I can see what you recommend! All you have to do for this meme is share a book for each of the three categories! For the full announcement please check out Aimal’s

All you have to do for this meme is share a book for each of the three categories! For the full announcement please check out Aimal’s Announcement post.

Let’s get started!

Don’t worry, there isn’t any more information on the books here than on the back of them or on the goodreads synopsis. So there is hopefully no spoilers.

You Know Me Well by Nina LaCour and David Levithan 

I really enjoyed this book and it was the first book I had ever read that was about homosexual couples. This book’s two main characters are Mark and Kate. They go to the same school but don’t really know each other until one night during Pride Week in San Fransisco. Mark is in love with his best friend Mark, who may or may not feel the same way and Kate has just run away from meeting a girl she has been in love with from afar!

I absolutely loved the message this book had and how fast paced it was! I have a full review on my blog, you can find it here.

City of Bones by Cassandra Clare (You could really put the whole series here).
I will be starting this book sometime this week or next as it’s on my TBR for the #ReadThemAllThon so I’m including it now before I read it.
I have watched the TV show on Netflix so I know that there is a gay romance in this book and I absolutely loved it in the TV show!
I really don’t think this book needs an explanation as it’s so popular!
I’ve been wanting to read this series for a long time and that want defiantly increased after I watched the TV show. Let me know if the TV show is actually like the book because I don’t really know anyone that has watched it and read the books but I heard the Movie was nothing like the book?

First of all, can we look at this cover! It’s gorgeous!
The Sun is Also a Star by Nicola Yoon
According to Goodreads this book is set to release November 1st
This is what I get from what I have read of the synopsis on Goodreads.
It’s based on a girl named Natasha who is a very factual based person and doesn’t believe in fate and destiny until she meets this boy in New York city and falls in love. The catch is she is 12 hours away from her family and herself being deported to Jamaica. Daniel has also never been a dreamer until he meets Natasha and now believes that fate has something in store for them.
This book sounds so interesting and I have never read a book that involves anyone being deported. So this will hopefully be an interesting and eye-opening read.

You can expect to see another post like this next Thursday as I think I will defiantly continue this meme! Let me know if you have read any of these books and let me know what you thought!

    Yesss, thank you so much for participating! I’m SO glad to have you on board. Remember to always link back to a post on my blog so I get a notification and can add a link to my post. 😀

    I haven’t read the collab between Nina LaCour and David Levithan, but I really want to. I’ve only read one book by each of them, but I really enjoyed both of them! As for TMI, I personally enjoyed the series much, much more than the show. I only saw the first two episodes of the show before I gave it up. But I WILL say that the show did a wonderful job casting some of the characters, particularly Simon, Isabelle, Luke, Magnus and Alec. The show’s also much more diversified than the books. D:

      You Know Me Well is defiantly worth looking at and you can easily read it in one sitting!
      And I will have to see how I feel about TMI I hope I love the books and I hope I will finish City of Bones during this read-a-thon!
