Top Ten Tuesday #36

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish and is a chance for everyone to get to know fellow bloggers and share lists. I love lists. Every week is a different list.

This week is Top Ten Books That Celebrate Diversity/Diverse Characters.

I actually found this list quite difficult - it's not something I'd actually focus on when I'm reading, how diverse the characters are... I just read. So this is probably the hardest list I've had to do this year, what's diverse to one person is the norm to another. And this book blogger has a lesbian single mother for a sister.

What even is diversity anyway? I used this definition:
It means understanding that each individual is unique, and recognizing our individual differences. These can be along the dimensions of race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, age, physical abilities, religious beliefs, political beliefs, or other ideologies.
  1. The Parasol Protectorate (Series) by Gail Carriger
  2. Rani and Sukh by Bali Rai
  3. Noughts and Crosses by Malorie Blackman
  4. Megan by Mary Hooper
  5. Kissing the Rain by Kevin Brooks
  6. Pirates! by Celia Rees

  8. Sundowners by Leslie Lokko

  2. I've read the first Parasol Protectorate book and it was a lot of fun - I didn't even think of adding it to this list! Great picks.
