I’m back for another Diversity Spotlight Thursday!
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 post.

I haven’t read any more Diverse books, I am a bit behind. But that is why I started this meme in the first place! I’m currently reading The Mortal Instruments series I haven’t had a chance to read anything else as it’s a rather large series! So hopefully once I fish it I will get a chance to read some diverse books.

I’ll Give You The Sun by Jandy Nelson

This book sounds very interesting and is defiantly  something I would read!

Goodreads Synopsis:

Jude and her twin brother, Noah, are incredibly close. At thirteen, isolated Noah draws constantly and is falling in love with the charismatic boy next door, while daredevil Jude cliff-dives and wears red-red lipstick and does the talking for both of them. But three years later, Jude and Noah are barely speaking. Something has happened to wreck the twins in different and dramatic ways . . until Jude meets a cocky, broken, beautiful boy, as well as someone else—an even more unpredictable new force in her life. The early years are Noah’s story to tell. The later years are Jude’s. What the twins don’t realize is that they each have only half the story, and if they could just find their way back to one another, they’d have a chance to remake their world.

Of Fire and Stars by Audrey Coulthurst

I have never read a fantasy LGBT book, so this was really interesting to find! This will defiantly be on my TBR when it comes out. My love for Fantasy doubles my interest in reading this book!

Set to release November 22nd, 2016

Goodreads Synopsis:

Betrothed since childhood to the prince of Mynaria, Princess Dennaleia has always known what her future holds. Her marriage will seal the alliance between Mynaria and her homeland, protecting her people from other hostile lands. But Denna has a secret. She possesses an Affinity for fire—a dangerous gift for the future queen of a kingdom where magic is forbidden.

Now, Denna must learn the ways of her new home while trying to hide her growing magic. To make matters worse, she must learn to ride Mynaria’s formidable warhorses before her coronation—and her teacher is the person who intimidates her most, the prickly and unconventional Princess Amaranthine (called Mare), sister of her betrothed.

When a shocking assassination leaves the kingdom reeling, Mare and Denna reluctantly join forces to search for the culprit. As the two work together, each discovers there’s more to the other than she thought. Mare is surprised by Denna’s intelligence and bravery, while Denna is drawn to Mare’s independent streak. Soon their friendship is threatening to blossom into something more.

But with dangerous conflict brewing that makes the alliance more important than ever, acting on their feelings could be deadly. Forced to choose between their duty and their hearts, Mare and Denna must find a way to save their kingdoms—and each other.


Let me know if you have read any of these books and what you thought!

  1. I agree with M., Of Fire and Stars sounds really interesting! I love reading fantasy books, but must admit I haven’t read nearly as many as I’d like to. I’ll add this one to my list on Goodreads. Great list! I hope you’ll catch up and have something for a Book You’ve Read & Enjoyed soon 😉 I know how hard it can be to read everything you actually want to. My stack of books is always piling up!

    1. Fantasy would defiantly be my most read genre! I love it. It was all I used to read! I hope so too! There are so many series that I need to finish at the moment and it’s so hard to keep on top of them plus read new books that I discover!
