The goal of this meme is to take a moment every Thursday to highlight 3 diverse books: one from your TBR, one you read and enjoyed, and one that’s not yet released!
I want to give you guys an idea of the rep each book offers, but with books that are still on my TBR, I’ll have to make the best educated guesses I can. If I ever make an error or miss something, please let me know in a comment so I can fix it right away! Also, while I will try my best, I obviously cannot guarantee that any books listed for my “TBR picks” will be without problems, so please proceed with discretion!
1. TBR pick:
Queens of Geek – Jen Wilde
This book has been on my TBR for what feels like forever, and I honestly don’t have a clue as to why I haven’t read it yet. Everyone seems to love it, I’ve been told it’s absolutely freaking adorable, it’s about geeky girls (*raises hand*) and, hello, there is PINK HAIR on the cover. Pink hair? Anyone? *gestures to self* BRB while I go order a copy ASAP.
Reps: autistic, bi, asian, fat, latinx
2. Book you enjoyed:
The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue – Mackenzi Lee
This is a fairly new release, and I actually broke my book buying ban to grab a copy of this one last month because I had heard so many good things about it! I completely adored it. I thought it was fun, sweet, silly, and even nervewracking at times. It’s not just an m/m romance; it’s also a story of shenanigans and adventure and a swashbuckling good time (heh). You can read my review here!
Reps: biracial, bi, unconfirmed(?) ace, disability (epilepsy)
3. Unreleased title:
Girls Made of Snow and Glass – Melissa Bashardoust
Technically, this is another one of those #2/#3 dual titles, because I did get to read an ARC of this book earlier this month and really enjoyed it! (Review here if you’re interested.) While the rep in this book is not heavy-handed at all, it is present and positive, so I’ll still recommend it on this list!
Reps: lesbian, WOC
