Five diverse books to read this Autumn with aesthetics ๐ŸŽƒ๐Ÿ–ค

Dear reader,

As a white straight (though on the ace spectrum) cisgender woman, I always felt represented in literature. Growing up on the Internet I soon understood that it wasn’t the case for many, many people. Ever since I started my own book blog and bookstagram I’ve been trying to present tons of diverse books so people can see themselves in it. I also try to let those people speak for themselves, as I did two years ago with a blog post in which readers part of the LGBTQIA+ community recommended some books. (I wouldn’t want to make it all about me and to erase anyone, I only want to promote others voices as I can.)

Today I decided to highlight five diverse books which I believe are perfect reads for this Autumn, all with aesthetics!

  1. I haven’t read any of these but I’ve written the titles down so I can do some research on them and see if I’m interested (your aesthetics look gorgeous!!). I wouldn’t classify this as an autumnal reading, but one of my favourite f/f books is “The Love and Lies of Rukhsana Ali” – have you read it/heard about it? ^^
