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!
