James Dawson, author of Say Her Name (among others), wrote a blog post titled #YouGotDiverseBooks in which he says that there are plenty of diverse books out in the market but people are just not reading them. In his post, Dawson provided a list of books with prominent minority characters. I was going to add Goodreads links and maybe like a few sentences about each book, but it will make this post super long and honestly, I am rather lazy to do that.
You can check the list here (because I’m sure I missed a couple of books while making this post)
* More Happy Than Not by Adam Silvera was not on Dawson’s list.
YA books that discusses feminism:
Of course, this list is not exhaustive. There are books in here that I’ve read and loved, books that I haven’t heard before until I saw his list (and have added to my TBR) , books that are already on my TBR and books I absolutely hated. It is a rather diverse range of books.
sunday was my birthday and i finally got this tattoo that alex wrote out for me the last time i met them; something i’ve wanted on my skin since i was 15. i love the way it turned out and couldn’t be happier!
(also, the lil heart was drawn by jack too!)
