Top Ten Books That Celebrate Diversity/Diverse Characters

Wow ok this list was way harder than I thought it was going to be. Apparently I don’t read many books that are diverse. Sorry for the shortness of this list.

1. Simon Vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli. About a boy coming out.

2.  The Fault In Our Stars by John Green. About children with cancer.

3. If I Stay by Gayle Forman. From the perspective of someone in a coma. Thats pretty diverse.

4. Where You’ll Find Me by Erin Fletcher. About a homeless boy.Can you see im scraping for anything?

5. Newes From The Dead by Mary Hooper. From the perspective of a supposedly dead person.

And thats all I have folks. Everything else I think I could have put on this list had a fantasy element to it so I chose to leave it off. I need to read more diverse books. Good thing you have all created lists for me to look through!

Be sure to share your lists!

  1. I want to read Simon Vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda so bad! I knew it was meant to be incredible but it’s been on like 80% of the lists I’ve looked at today! I feel like I must be missing out on something huge! Great list :)

  2. I realized a while ago that I didn’t read many diverse books either. I’ve been actively searching out more diverse authors and I’ve found so many great books that I never would have known about.

  3. Ahh, TFIOS almost made it to my list but I thought a lot of people would put it down. Great choices though!

  4. I’ve seen bloggers everywhere picking up Simon and the Homo Sapiens but I had no idea what it was about until now! Will have to get my hands on a copy, it sounds really interestig :) Great post!
