Top Ten Tuesday: Top 10 Books That Celebrate Diversity / Diverse Characters

Top Ten Tuesday is the brainchild of The Broke & the Bookish. Every Tuesday, we compile a list of our literary Top 10, and then add it to the blog hop.

This week is all about the Top 10 Books That Celebrate Diversity / Diverse Characters, whether they are culturally diverse, LGBGTQ+, disabled, or of colour.

The definition of “diverse” for the purpose of this post is that of the WNDB: We recognize all diverse experiences, including (but not limited to) LGBTQIA, people of color, gender diversity, people with disabilities, and ethnic, cultural, and religious minorities.”

    1. Whale Rider and Once Were Warriors are about Maori​ in New Zealand. Whale Rider is one of my favourites, a story about a girl growing up in Maori society and constantly having to prove herself against the boys and men in her tribe. Once Were Warriors is about life in housing projects. Maurice is a beautiful story with a homosexual love triangle in Edwardian England – while this was still a crime (the film from 1987 is also very good).
