Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.
Reading more diversely is my main reading goal for 2017. There are books I own that I want to read, backlist books that I have been meaning to get to for ages, and upcoming releases that promise that the future of YA is a lot more diverse than its past. These are of course not the only diverse books I want to read this year, but a place to start at least.
Books I Own
1. When the Moon Was Ours by Anna-Marie McLemore
2. Akata Witch by Nnedi Okorafor
3. If I Ever Get Out of Here by Eric Gansworth
4. Labyrinth Lost by Zoraida Córdova
Backlist Books I Want to Own
5. Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli
6. Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Sáenz
7. Everything Leads to You by Nina LaCour
