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 ♡
♡ 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 are 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. Also be on the look out for the movie releasing in 2018.
♡ 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 focuses heavily on self-harm and depression which is somewhat of a trigger point for me, I’m really hoping to pick it up soon though.
♡ They Both Die In The End by Adam Silvera // Elements of Diversity: LGBTQ+ characters.
I have not yet read anything by Silvera yet – yes I know I’m totally missing out – so I’m really excited to read They Both Die At The End. The concept of this sounds amazingly cool in a morbid kind of way, but I’m still extremely excited to go on this journey with our two main characters Mateo and Rufus. The story features LGBT characters and judging by what I’ve heard about Silvera’s previous books the LGBT representation is always on point. They Both Die At The End will be released September 2017.
