Diversity bookshelf

This year I read non-fiction and memoirs written by POC, but I’m usually a fiction girl. My goal going into the new year and beyond is to intentionally support fictional stories that represent people who look like me. The books listed below are fiction or Young Adult fiction written by writers of color or have POC main characters. If you know of any YA fiction or want to make recommendations, let me know in the comments or on Twitter.

On to the working list (will be updated frequently):

  • The Sun Is Also A Star – Nicola Yoon
  • The Rose and the Dagger – Renee Ahdieh
  • Ms. Marvel – Sana Amanat
  • Americanah – Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
  • The Unhappy Wife – K E Garland
  • Everything Everything – Nicola Yoon


Disclaimer: The books listed have not been reviewed by me. I don’t write book reviews. Personally, I wish I could but I can’t. I do my best to research before adding to the list. If I’ve read anything listed below, I’ll put an asterisk next to it. I don’t bite at all so you can definitely ask me about it and I’ll be happy to share my thoughts. Please use GoodReads and advance reading copy (ARC) reviews.
