Diversity Spotlight Thursday #3

Diversity Spotlight Thursday is a weekly meme hosted by Aimal @ Bookshelves & Paperbacks you can find the original post and the rules here. What you have to do is answer the 3 questions:

 

  1. A diverse book you have read and enjoyed
  2. A diverse book that has already been released but you have not read.
  3. A diverse book that has not yet been released.

This week I don’t have a theme really, so these will just be diverse books in general.

  1. A diverse book you have read and enjoyed.

I recently finished History Is All You Left Me by Adam Silvera, and while I didn’t thoroughly enjoy it, it was definitely good. (REVIEW)

  1. A diverse book that has already been released but you have not read.

Ms. Marvel, Vol. 2: Generation Why by G. Willow Wilson. Not sure if it can be counted as a book but oh well. I finally checked this out from the library yesterday and I’m beyond excited to read it.

  1. A diverse book that has not yet been released.

In October a book called Dear Martin will be released, written by Nic Stone. It seems to have the same theme as The Hate U Give, and I’ve already heard wonderful things about it by reviewers. This is the synopsis from Goodreads.

Justyce McAllister is top of his class, captain of the debate team, and set for the Ivy League next year—but none of that matters to the police officer who just put him in handcuffs. He is eventually released without charges (or an apology), but the incident has Justyce spooked. Despite leaving his rough neighborhood, he can’t seem to escape the scorn of his former peers or the attitude of his prep school classmates. The only exception: Sarah Jane, Justyce’s gorgeous—and white—debate partner he wishes he didn’t have a thing for.
Struggling to cope with it all, Justyce starts a journal to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. But do Dr. King’s teachings hold up in the modern world? Justyce isn’t so sure.
Then comes the day Justyce goes driving with his best friend, Manny, windows rolled down, music turned up. Way up. Much to the fury of the white off-duty cop beside them. Words fly. Shots are fired. And Justyce and Manny get caught in the crosshairs. In the media fallout, it’s Justyce who is under attack. The truth of what happened that night—some would kill to know. Justyce is dying to forget.

Sounds good, huh?
