Diversity Spotlight Thursday is a meme created by Aimal @ Bookshelves & Paperbacks, wherein you come up with a diverse book for three different categories: one you’ve read, one on your TBR, and one releasing soon. You can check out the announcement post for more information.
3, Hannah Moskowitz
Crushing on a boy who has a girlfriend doesn’t mean Taylor can’t date him, since Theo and Josey are in a polyamorous relationship, but it’s no smooth ride, either.
3 unwraps who we love and how we love, in numbers as odd as we are.
I adored this book (see my five-star review here). Definitely check it out if you’re interested in polyamory in YA, and it’s also a great book for lovers of contemporary romance with great wit and snark between the romantic interests.
Timekeeper, Tara Sim
An alternate Victorian world controlled by clock towers, where a damaged clock can fracture time—and a destroyed one can stop it completely.
I know very little cohesive about this one— steampunk! anxious protagonist who has PTSD! gay romance!— but it’s enough to make me eager to read it.
This is on my TBR for #TheReadingQuest, an amazing RPG-themed reading challenge hosted by Aentee @ Read at Midnight, so I’ll be reading it soon. I’ll be doing the Mage character quest and reading Timekeeper for the ‘book set in a different world’ step on the Quest Board.
27 Hours, Tristina Wright
An ensemble cast of queer teens living on a colonized moon must race against the clock to stop an attack that would make the war between species a war of human extinction.
This book is so hyped on Twitter that I can’t contain my smile whenever I think about it. It just sounds like the queer book of my dreams and I’m marking down the days to October 3rd.
