Diversity Thursdays #2

This weekly spotlight was created by Aimal over at Bookshelves and Paperbacks. Please feel free to view the full post and all the details here.

I don’t think it will come as a surprise to anyone that readers are searching the literary world for diverse characters and authors. I myself am guilty of reading books which lack diversity and I strive to fix that with a little help from these posts.

A Book I Have Read

  1. Oh my gosh, Enter Title Here sounds so fascinating! I’m South Asian and I know the pressure parents and children put on themselves to overachieve in school. XD I’ll definitely be adding it to my TBR.
    I have yet to read Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon. But if I take everything said about that author seriously, I’m sure I will love it. Thanks for participating, Eliana. ❤

    Aghh The Sun is Also a Star looks so pretty!! That cover 😍 It’s almost better than Everything, Everything, and that cover was GORGEOUS af. Even though I really didn’t like Everything, Everything, the cover was amazing. Enter Title Here is definitely something I want to read. It sounds uber realistic because I totally get the pressure when you are a Southeast Asian living in the US. By the way, your blog is gorgeous. This kind of simplistic, linear style really matches up with what I kind of like. What theme do you use? I feel like maybe I’ve seen this before, so I was just curious. Lovely post!!

    1. The pressure of school is something I find a lot of books don’t take very seriously even though it’s a pressing concern for a large portion of our generation. I actually haven’t read Everything, Everything but I have both these novels on my TBR list. I currently have a theme called Lovecraft. It’s one of the basic WordPress themes. Thank you for your comment!
