Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke & The Bookish
Welcome to another edition of Top Ten Tuesday. This week's topic actually had me thinking about it. Because I'm not sure how many books I've actually read that fit this category. The topic is the top ten books that celebrate diversity or have diverse characters. Some are ones I read. Others are ones I found on a Goodreads list.
3. A Voice in the Wind by Francine Rivers - A Jewish slave girl lives out her Christian faith in front of the family she serves, knowing that at any time she could be sent to the arena and fed to the lions. It's set in Rome around AD 75.
5. Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins - While it is true that Katniss is a young woman, she's also the main provider for her family. And she purposely sacrifices herself to save her sister.
6. The Island of the Blue Dolphins by Scott O'Dell - An Indian girl is shipwrecked on an island. It's been so long since I read this one.
7. Winter by Marissa Meyer - It's not out yet, but Princess Winter is evidently of African descent, if I remember my descriptions correctly.
