Top Ten Tuesday: #WeNeedDiverseBooks [@diversebooks @RainbowBoxesYA[


This week's Ten:

This week is a Thanksgiving Freebie (). I decided to change my original theme to something I really am thankful for: Diversity in YA Books.

There is a lot of hate, negativity, cruelty, violence and judgement in the world. We really do need to be more accepting, welcoming and embracing of others and I love when some of those 'others' are present in what I read.

It doesn't need to be all sunshine, roses and rainbows; life/reality/the world is complicated and that's usually reflected. I just love books that reflect how diverse our world is. (And maybe they show someone that we're not all as different as they might think.)
