I was tagged by the lovely Cristina @ My Tiny Obsessions for The Diverse Book Tag. It was created by Nazahet @ Read Diverse Books.

Thanks for the tag, Cristina! I think this one is really going to make me think.


A Book Starring a Lesbian Characterย 

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 Yucatรกn 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.

YAEA_Final_WebA 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?

26027030A 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.

  1. Hello! It’s not a big deal, but I actually created this tag. ๐Ÿ˜€ It seems that it got lost after being around for a while. haha, it’s OK. Here’s the original link: http://wp.me/p7a9pe-y3
    Anyway, great list!
    You really must not read much SFF if you chose Hunger Games for this tag. haha. Oh, well.
    The tag allowed to use books you haven’t read. All you had to do was search for some that you want to read and use them in your list. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Thank you for pointing that out. I went ahead and updated the post citing you as the originator.
      Yes, I rarely read SFF. I’m all about the romance genre. I wanted to choose books I read (or at least own), if at all possible. That’s why I chose The Hunger Games. I know there are other better choices out there, but I haven’t read them. ยฏ\_(ใƒ„)_/ยฏ
      Thank you for stopping by and commenting!

    • I don’t know if I received it or not! I usually respond back. I just checked it out.
      And you’re welcome for the tag! I just cited back to the creator if you want to check out the original!

    • I thought Gwen was, but had a moment of doubt. Lol. I almost used someone else than Ty, but I love him so much and want other people to find that book! ๐Ÿ˜‰ I might have been totally wrong about The Hunger Games, but I was thinking of Rue? I can’t remember if the book stated if she was a POC, but she was in the movie. Terrible to guess, I know…

    • You’re welcome. All the credit goes to Read Diverse Books, though. I wish I could claim credit, but I didn’t create it. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  4. Sorry it took me so long to get to this. And you’ve read The Kite runner, I want to read it so badly! I’ll do this tag ASAP. Nice answers!

    • No problem at all! ๐Ÿ™‚ The Kite Runner was good, but hard to read because of all the stuff it dealt with. Thank you!
