my booklist

So many books to read, so little time, so little money.

Below is my We Need Diverse Books booklist, written by or with people of colour, lgbtq people and people with disabilities.

These are all different genres but I mostly enjoy fantasy, coming-of-age books, young adult, mystery, historical fictions, myths and legends retellings, crime stories with sprinkles and sprinkles of romance all over them.
