Diversity Spotlight Thursday is a weekly meme hosted by Aimal @ Bookshelves and Paperbacks. Every week, you come up with one book in each of three different categories:
– a diverse book you have read and enjoyed
– a diverse book on your TBR
– a diverse book that has not yet been released
You can check out Aimal’s announcement post for more information.
Don’t forget to leave a link to your own post in the comments and take some time to check out other people’s posts! 🙂
A diverse book I have read and enjoyed
A brilliant essay by an awesome woman that everyone should read. Read my review here.
“Some people will bring up evolutionary biology and apes, how female apes bow to male apes – that sort of thing. But the point is this: we are not apes. Apes also live in trees and eat earthworms. We do not.”
A diverse book on my TBR
I just bought this – hopefullys I’ll get to it soon! 🙂
“I want to swallow you, have you melt into me and flow through my veins.”
A diverse book that has not yet been released
Vi Khi Nao has an MFA in fiction from Brown University and has previously published a poetry collection among other things.
Expected publication: November 1st 2016.
“Fish in Exile spins unimaginable loss through classical and magical tumblers, distorting our view so that we can see the contours of a parent’s grief all the more clearly.”
Especially with the recent discussion about the need for more diversity in literature, I think this is a brilliant meme. Let’s broaden our horizons together and read more diversely! If you participate in the meme, leave me a link to your post in the comments or just tell me about some diverse book you have read or want to read 🙂
