Diversity Thursdays #7

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
None of the Above


My Review

This novel explores what it means to be intersex from the point of view of high school senior Kristin. Shunned by her classmates and friends she struggles with her own identity and what this means for her future.

A Book On My TBR
The Wangs vs. the World


Charles Wang, an immigrant who build his fortune in America, is ruined by the financial crisis. As a result, him and his family must discover how to cope when their world no longer revolves around money.

Soon To Be Released
Poison’s Kiss


Marinda is an assassin whose victims need only brush their lips against hers for death to claim them. The novel is steeped in India folklore and looks like it will be a lot of fun.

    I really want to read None of the Above! I’ve heard really great things, and I’ve never read a book with another intersex character before. I hope you enjoy The Wangs vs. the World more than I did. ❤
