August Wrap Up

My goal for August was for 50% of the books I read to be about minority characters who are underrepresented in media. Whether this be POC, people with disabilities, learning disorders, LGBTQ+, etc. Though this is not surprising at all, but I really liked most of these stories and I loved reading about the different perspectives and how those characters deal with different aspects of their lives. While I haven’t actually done the math, I do feel like I have enjoyed these books more since they were unique,had excellent character development, diversity and overall, just really great stories.

Without further ado, let’s get started. I grouped the books so if anyone is looking for a book to read with more representation and diversity, you can find it easily.
