Top Ten Tuesday: Ten Books That Celebrate Diversity/Diverse Characters

As always this meme is hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. Go and take a look at their blog!

Okay, so… today’s post is a difficult one. I have read books about diverse Characters (a lot of my reviews are of mogai-books) but celebration is… more in my eyes. But I’ll try my best.

Maybe we're all ghosts too

No brainer: Maybe we’re all ghosts too. This is the most diverse book I have ever read. So many nationalities, the Hindu-Religion ‘versus’ Homosexuality, the main character is disabled, mental illnesses are part of the story, one of the characters is  a sex worker, poverty is a theme, …

Evenfall 1

In the company of shadows Series. What are you waiting for? It’s for free. So unbelieveable good. m/m, one main character is a POC, the other has to deal with not looking like society expects a man to look like, mental illnesses…

The Bone Collector

The Lincoln Rhyme Series. The main character is disabled and it is a big point in the books, but more important is how he solves crimes.

Cut & run

The Cut & Run series. m/m, dealings with ptsd, addictions and solving crimes (I just love it okay?)

Capture & Surrender

Capture & Surrender. m/m I can’t say much because the thing gets revealed later in the story, although you can guess it. It is part of a series but more or less stand alone.

So which diverse books can you recommend?

  1. Great list – I’ve not read any of these but they certainly look interesting. And, now I read some of yours (particularly the Bone Collector) it’s put me in mind of another character – Shardlake from the Sansom novels – they’re all set in the 1600’s (ish) and Shardlake is quite badly deformed, I think he has a hump and maybe a twisted spine. He acts as a sort of early days detective. They’ve very good stories if you like historical crime.

    • When I first read it was a free read I couldn’t believe it. But it’s real and so good… I’ll buy the paperbacks sometime soon. You may want to strangle the characters sometimes, but all in good fun.


  2. I haven’t heard of any of these books, but they are all being put on my wishlist! I’m especially excited about Maybe we’re all ghosts too, it sounds like it’s really good and interesting.

    You can find my TTT on my blog. Have a wonderful day!
