Diversity Thursdays #5

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
Little Peach

Michelle is trapped in the world of child prostitution with nowhere and no one else to turn to. If you pick up this novel you are in for a rough ride. It’s compelling, heart breaking and completely brutal and so worth the read.

A Book On My TBR List
Absalom’s Daughters: A Novel

Two sisters band together in the hopes of inheriting their wayward father’s money. Both lead very different lives but manage to reconcile this with the fact that they share a common goal.

American Street

This novel centres around Fabiola, a young girl immigrating to America and thrust into the arms of boisterous cousins and the american dream. Trying to adapt to her new circumstances might prove more difficult than she thinks. This novel sounds like it will be heartfelt and compelling and I’m so excited to give it a shot.
