Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books That Celebrate Diversity


Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because they are particularly fond of lists at The Broke and the Bookish, and I decided to share my list with all of you also!

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic is…Top Ten Books That Celebrate Diversity.ย Shall we?


1. Ana of California by Andi Teran

This book’s MC is very proud of her Mexican heritage and we even have secondary characters with Native American heritage.

Full of Arabian culture, this book is the definition of diversity!

  1. This is a great list! I want to read The Wrath of the Dawn (like so many others!). The more I hear about it, the more interested I become. ๐Ÿ™‚ 5 to 1 is one I just discovered last night thanks to someone else listing it and, I have to say, it sure sounds good! From your list, I have only read Eleanor and Park. I really liked that one.


  2. The only one I have read on this list is Made You Up and it was definitely a diverse read. I have seen the cover for One but I never knew it was about conjoined twins! I need to try that book for sure at some point now !!!
