Hey guys, welcome to another installment of Diversity Spotlight Thursday created by Bookshelves & Paperbacks ! Click to see the first, second and third installment of this series in my blog. I’ve decided to alter a bit the original post. Initially we had to answer 3 questions:
- Diverse book you enjoyed reading
- Diverse book that has been released and you want to read
- Diverse book yet to be released and you want to read
And because I suck in being up to date with upcoming releases, I shall do my diversity posts answering the first 2 questions only 🙂
Here are my picks for this week!
1. A diverse book you have read and enjoyed
I just finished this brilliant debut novel by a writer who has Western and Asian ancestry and it is such a well written book! Questioning an artist’s struggles in New York on top of being female and Asian, this is easily one of my favourite diverse reads. Read my review here and please pick this up if you have the time!
2. A diverse book that has already been released but you have not read
I am very much looking forward to this Turkish-influenced novel that contains many Rumi references! It has such an interesting premise and I hope to venture more into Oriental or Middle Eastern novels.
Thanks for reading this post! Have you read any of these books and what did you think of them?
