Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish

This week's top ten them is...Top Ten Books that celebrate diversity or diverse characters.  I have a bunch on my TBR stack so I can't really list them yet D:  SO I guess I will list as many as I can.

Will Grayson, Will Grayson
Without a doubt one of my favorite John Green/David Levithan books.  Tiny Cooper is hilariously gay.  And DL's Will Grayson is just... yea... well. It's bext if you read it.

Penryn's mother in this series suffer's from paranoid schizophrenia.  And while she is comical at times, it also wears down on Penryn, having to take care of her baby sister and her unstable mother.

Polarity in Motion
This not only features minorities as characters but uses mental illness in the MC's mother as well.  It's just chock full of diversity!

Linden Hills
I keep telling people to read this book.  It's a modern retelling of Dante's Inferno in a neighborhood of  mostly African Americans.  It's one of my favorite and most interesting reads of all time.

Gone Girl
This book is fucking insane.  And so is one of the characters.  I don't even know...

Court of Fives (Court of Fives, #1)
This book deals a lot with race and prejudice.  It was soooo good.  My review comes out this week.

Something Strange and Deadly (Something Strange and Deadly, #1)
This trilogy deals with the poverty the Fitt family is facing, each book in different ways.  The first book, Eleanor's mother tries forcing her to find a husband.  In the second book, Eleanor is dealing with teh fallout from the first book, selling off all of her belongings from being now impoverished.

The Heart of Betrayal (The Remnant Chronicles, #2)
Venda in general is just poor.  Aster is the epitome of a poor little Vendan girl.

I got eight.  Close enough!  On my TBR are More Happy than Not, Hold me Closer, and Made You Up.  Hopefully they'll get read soon.

What's on your list today?
