Diverse Reading Round-up Fall 2017

It looks like I missed the last couple of my planned diverse reading round-ups – the last one I could find was my March and April Diverse Reading.  Here’s what I’ve read since then, with links to reviews if I’ve written them:

#OwnVoices Authors

  • When the Moon was Ours by Anna-Marie McLemore (teen fantasy)
  • Funny Girl by Betsy Bird (middle grade short stories)
  • Flying Lessons by Ellen Oh, Ed. (middle grade short stories)
  • Akata Warrior by Nnedi Okorafor (middle grade fantasy)
  • Five, Six, Seven, Nate! By Tim Federle (middle grade realistic)
  • The Lotterys Plus One by Emma Donoghue (middle grade realistic)
  • Ninefox Gambit by Yoon Ha Lee (adult sci-fi)
  • Ghost Girl in the Corner by Daniel Jose Older (teen fantasy)
  • Want by Cindy Pon (teen sci-fi)
  • A Wish after Midnight by Zetta Elliott (teen fantasy)
  • The Door at the Crossroads by Zetta Elliott (teen fantasy)
  • When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon (teen realistic)
  • Midnight without a Moon by Linda Williams Jackson (middle grade historical)
  • In the Footsteps of Crazy Horse by Joseph Marshall (middle grade realistic)
  • A Properly Unhaunted Place by William Alexander (middle grade fantasy)
  • The Crystal Ribbon by Celeste Lim (middle grade fantasy)
  • The Mesmerist by Ronald L. Smith (middle grade fantasy)

White/Straight Authors, Diverse Characters

  • Shadow Cipher. York #1. By Laura Ruby (middle grade fantasy)
  • Journey across the Hidden Islands by Sarah Beth Durst (middle grade fantasy)
  • Last Day on Mars by Kevin Emerson (middle grade sci-fi)
  • Felix Yz by Lisa Bunker (middle grade sci-fi)

Hopefully the huge round-up is not too overwhelming.  Even so, I don’t think I’m quite meeting my goal of 5 diverse authors a month.  I’d love to hear about your diverse reading, too!
