Diversity Spotlight Thursdays is a weekly feature in which I share a diverse book that I’ve read and enjoyed, a diverse book on my TBR and a diverse book that is releasing soon ♡
♡ A Book I’ve Read.
♡ All The Bright Places by Jennifer Niven || Elements of Diversity: Depression and BiPolar Disorder.
All The Bright Places is one my all time favourite novels; I absolutely fell in love with Niven’s writing style, but I fell even more in love with the characters she created. Her characters were real and raw and her take on the characters mental illnesses are amazing. The depression and bipolar representation is amazing and the best part is that love doesn’t cure everything in this one.
♡ A Book On My TBR.
♡ Girl In Pieces by Kathleen Glasgow || Elements of Diversity: Depression.
Girl In Pieces has been on my radar ever since I’ve heard about it and I hesitantly added it to my TBR. I’m so interested in this story as I’ve heard that the writing is raw and real and honest, but I’m also a bit wary because of the contents of this novel. Girl In Pieces heavily focuses on self-harm and depression which is somewhat of a trigger point for me, I’m really hoping to pick it up soon though.
♡ A Book That Is Being Released Soon.
♡ When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon || Elements of Diversity: Indian Main Characters.
I’m so so excited for this book! Firstly, I’m so super happy that this book will feature numerous POC and that there is a POC on the cover of the book. Secondly, I’m excited to experience dating and relationships from an Indian perspective; plus I love cute contemporaries and I’ve heard nothing but rave reviews! When Dimple Met Rishi will be released 30 May 2017.
Have you read any of these books and what was your experience? Are any of these on your own personal TBR? Let me know in the comments!
