2017 Books I’m Excited For – Diverse Reads Edition

This year is all about amazing diverse reads and with it a ton of new diverse books are being published and I am SO HYPED. Y’all, I am so tired of reading about the cookie cutter girl who has “blondish-brown hair” and “hazel eyes” so the reader can superimpose themselves on said character. We need diversity and change and now more than ever it is extremely important that there is more diverse reads as *gasp* authors and publishing companies are realizing there are more diverse readers!

This is not an all encompassing list, but merely some of my most anticipated. There are tons of amazing diverse books coming out this year and a lot of bloggers have made really great lists as well. I recommend you look at other lists ti find more great reads.

This list is in publishing date order.
