This is just a quick post to let everyone know I’ve added a new page to my blog! It’s not as detailed or as vast as the books with disability list because it’s only books that I’ve read, but it includes POC, LGBT+, disability (mental and physical), and religion. I’ve always had these tags and links on my blog, but I figured everyone might not know about them, so I’ve just compiled all the links into one page. It also includes some books I’ve read but don’t plan to review and a few games. Hopefully it’ll help anyone who’s looking for a specific type of representation or more diversity among characters in general find more books they might be interested in, especially since I read a lot of indie books that aren’t super well-known.
You can check out the new page at this link, and it will also be in the menu at the top of the site!
Here are a few diverse/inclusive recommendations to start you off (covers link to Amazon):
Soul Breaker by Clara Coulson
Urban fantasy with a Latinx, bisexual protag who has PTSD and panic attacks. [Review]
Lovesick Gods by Amanda Meuwissen
Superhero/villain romance with bisexual MCs, one is Asian, the other has depression. [Review]
The City of Brass by S.A. Chakraborty
Historical fantasy about djinn, I believe the MC is from Egypt and the rest of the characters are from around Africa and Asia. [Review]
Moth & Whisper Vol. 1 by Ted Anderson & Jen Hickman
YA cyberpunk graphic novel with a POC nonbinary MC. [Review]
The Ex-Princess by Fiona West
Fantasy romance, one character is Black, the other has lupus. [Review]
Oh, wow. I looked into the list, and it must have been a LOT of work to put together. And you officially made it to my next Tooting Your Trumpet post!
This is amazingly detailed! I hope lots of readers find this fantastic resource?
Thanks, me too!
Thanks for putting all this together! A fantastic resource and it looks nice and clear for navigation.
Awesome resource! Thanks, Kristen!
SOUL BREAKER!! I’m looking at you brother. I’m always on the lookout for Latinx characters that are really Latin! It’s a rep I know well and love but you really don’t find well portrayed. Thanks for this Kristen. Looks like a page I will need to be visiting often.
Tbh there isn’t much about him being Latinx, so idk if you might be disappointed. It’s a great series though!
How exciting. This is a great resource!
Thanks, I hope people find it useful!
I’ve noticed that you review quite a few diverse books. It’s neat how you’ve made an easy way for readers to find diverse books that you’ve read. I’m currently reading Wicked Fox by Kat Cho.
Ooh I want to read that one!
Wow! This must have taken you ages to write and plan out your tags. You are a very thoughtful blogger, Kristen.
Thanks, I hope it’s helpful to people!
It’s always nice to find these resources – especially for less known authors/titles.

Thanks, hopefully this will help people!
What a fantastic idea!! Thanks for sharing this list!
This is great. Thanks so much for doing this! I just recently purchased a copy of The City of Brass based on your recommendation. 🙂
Oh that makes me happy! I’m loving that series, I hope you love it too!
That sounds handy how you added a page for those book to your blog, especially as you had those tags set up already. I’ll have a look at that page soon 🙂
