The Diverse Books Tag

I wasn’t actually tagged for this, but I saw it on and thought it was a great idea. So, here we go!

RULES

The Diverse Books Tag is a bit like a scavenger hunt. I will task you to find a book that fits a specific criteria and you will have to show us a book you have read or want to read. If you can’t think of a book that fits the specific category, then I encourage you to go look for one. A quick Google search will provide you with many books that will fit the bill. (Also, Goodreads lists are your friends.) Find one you are genuinely interested in reading and move on to the next category.

THE QUESTIONS.

1. Find a book starring a lesbian character.

1294965

I’ve never read this but it was on my TBR.

2. Find a book with a Muslim protagonist.

Really excited to give this graphic novel a-go.

3. Find a book set in Latin America.

4. Find a book about a person with a disability.

Wheel of Steel isn’t technically about Jason only, but he has cerebral palsy.
Dark Lover has a has someone blind in it (I believe)

5. Find a science-fiction or fantasy book with a POC (person of colour) protagonist.

Ah, I love POC in Fantasy and Science Fiction.

6. Find a book set in/about any country in Africa.

      I haven’t read them yet, but so many speak such high praises for them that I’m really excited to read them. Feel free to do the tag if you like 😀

    Hi, Codie! Thanks so much for doing my tag.
    I love your answers 🙂 A lot of them I have already read or are on my TBR.
    I love how you went above and beyond for category 5! Yesss, I love sci-fi and fantasy, especially when it stars people of color.
    If you’re interested in joining a book club that focuses on diverse SFF, check out the #DSFFBookClub hashtag on Twitter.

    It’s nice to meet you, Codie. I’m Naz and thanks again!

      Hey, Naz! Forgive my late reply – I haven’t been on here in a while. Thanks so much 🙂 I’ve read a few on the list, and they were all great!

      Haha, I’m glad you liked that. I do love POC in Science Fiction and Fantasy too! It’s actually been growing as the times mature and becoming a rather beautiful thing for people like us (fans of POC in sci-fi and fantasy) – It’s an awesome thing to witness. I’d love to join the book club, you’ll see me around on there (although I warn everyone that I’m horrible with twitter lol). It was great meeting you too, Naz! See ya around on Twitter and whatnot 😀
