Fantastically Diverse Read-A-Thon TBR

Click on the banner to go to the original post!
Hi guys! Today I'm going to be adding my TBR for Books.Bags.Burgers.'s read-a-thon. Click on the banner above to go to the master post and read all the details about it! I might also try to get Soph and/or Lupe to join but if not, oh well. They're busy being college students and I'm still stuck in grade school. So let's get right into it :)

I'm going to try for level 2 (around the world twice) so let's see how this goes!

❤ As the name implies, the Protagonist/ Main character should be a person of color. (The other characters in the story may or may not fall under the category of PoC)


❤ This includes retellings of non-western myths and legends such as Alladin, 1001 Nights etc.

❤ The Protagonists have to belong to the LGBTQ category.

❤ As the name implies, not just the protagonist but there are other PoC characters too. NOT EVERY character has to be a PoC but a majority of the characters need to fall under the category. (Most of the fantasy books set in a non western setting will fall under this category)

❤ Diverse Fantasy meant for middle grade

❤ The book must feature a disabled character (not a background character but a prominent character). The disability could be physical as well as intellectual or developmental. This also includes mental illnesses and PTSD.

❤ Go ahead and pick up any diverse fantasy book from your TBR. This will help you get to tackling your TBR too!

So that's my TBR guys. What are some diverse books on you guys' TBR? Are you going to join in on this read-a-thon (please do!)? Welp, guess I gotta go to the library now to get some of these!
