Top Ten Tuesday is hosted at The Broke and the Bookish.
#1 Parrotfish by Ellen Wittlinger
The main character in this book is transgender.
#2 The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare
Magnus and Alec. Ship it. Need I say more?
#3 The Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank
This book looks at the discrimination of a people in a bad light. Therefore saying that diversity is a good thing. But I hated this book. So here’s a second number two:
#3.5 The Fault In Our Stars by John Green
Because aside from the cancer, there is also a straight relationship. It isn’t a diverse world if everyone is gay, is it?
#4 Boys for Beginners by Lil Chase
This book is about accepting different parts of who you are and not sticking to a stereotype.
#5 Fish In A Tree by Lynda Mullay Hunt
This book is all about how different people are intelligent in different ways and are good at different things and are individuals. If that isn’t diversity then I don’t know what is.
#6 Shadow Falls by C.C. Hunter
This book celebrates diversity in that it welcomes into its pages all types of creatures.
#7 I’ll Give You the Sun by Jandy Nelson
This book explores the topic of it being okay to be different and to be yourself. Also, one of the main characters, Noah, is gay.
#8 Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor
Chimaera and Angel interracial relationships… kind of main focus point.
#9 Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling
Apart from the fact that Dumbledore is non-canon gay, there is also a focus on discrimination based on heritage (think ‘Mudblood’ and Houselves…)
#10 The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer
Cyborg rights people. Especially in the later books.
