Thanks for the tag, Cristina! I think this one is really going to make me think.
A Book Starring a Lesbian Character
Vanished by E.E. Cooper
Kalah, a lesbian, has a special relationship with her best friend Beth. I know I’ve read other books with lesbian MCs but this is the only one I can remember. They’re aren’t enough lesbian MCs out there.
A Book with a Muslim Protagonist
The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini
Amir was the first character who came to my mind. I’m not sure if I’ve read any other books with Muslim protagonists. Surely I have, right? If not, I need to. So much to learn.
A Book Set in Latin America
Beautiful Sacrifice by Elizabeth Lowell
This book is set in the Yucatán Penninsula of Mexico. It’s a romantic thriller that revolves around Mayan artifacts of the area. It wasn’t my favorite book by Lowell, but it was good.
A Book About a Person With a Disability
You and Everything After (Falling, #2) by Ginger Scott
Tyson Preeter is confined to a wheel chair without use of his legs after a freak accident. Cass Owens has young woman who is not about to let MS limit her. This is one of my favorite Scott books.
A Science-Fiction or Fantasy Book With a POC Protagonist
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
I don’t read much Science Fiction or Fantasy, so this was the one and only book that came to my mind. I’m sure there a lot more books out there, but I haven’t read them.
A Book Written by an Indigenous or Native Author
The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie
I haven’t read it, but I own it. That counts, right?
A Book Set in South Asia
The Colossus by Ranjini Iyer
You get more than just South Asia with this pick. This book is set in ancient India, Nazi era Berlin, modern day Chicago, London and Pakistan. How is that for diverse?
A Book with a Biracial Protagonist
That Thing Between Eli & Gwen by J.J. McAvoy
Okay. This is really bad to admit, but I think Gwen is biracial. I can’t remember exactly. Someone correct me if I’m wrong. I apologize if I am.
A Book Starring a Transgender Character or Transgender Issues
Middlesex by Jeffrey Eugenides
I’ve heard this book is amazing. I’ve always wanted to read it. I just haven’t gotten to it yet.
