#DiverseReads

discussion

Seeing as how there has been a lot of discussion in the book community lately about reading diversely and diversity in literature I thought it would be a good idea for me to put together a list of diverse books that I have read.  This list is a combination of fiction and non-fiction.  This post is not meant to be a recommendations post.

Red and Me by Bill Russell

Second Wind by Bill Russell

Big Papi: My Story of Big Dreams and Big Hits by David Ortiz

Pedro by Pedro Martinez

My Brother, My Sister, and I by Yoko Kawashima Watkins

So Far from the Bamboo Grove by Yoko Kawashima Watkins

I Am Malala by Malala Yousafzai

The Color of Water by James McBride

Finding Fish by Antwone Fisher

Everything Everything by Nicola Yoon

Beloved by Toni Morrison

God Help the Child by Toni Morrison

Chasing the North Star by Robert Morgan

Ink and Bone by Rachel Caine

Paper and Fire by Rachel Caine

The Pearl That Broke Its Shell by Nadia Hashimi

There Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neal Hurston

While I know this list isn’t too impressive, I am making more of an effort to read more diverse and own voices books.
