Hey everyone! I’m going to be sharing some more book recommendations today. I’m really sorry for not posting for a while, I had a lot going on, and I can’t promise that I’ll go back to a regular posting schedule in the near future, but I’ll try to post at least once a week.
I was tagged by the lovely Amanda @ Bookish Brews. Amanda’s posts have so much effort put into them, please head over there and give her a follow!

A book about friendship
Something that stood out to me about Skyhunter was Talin’s relationships with fellow strikers Adena, Jarin and Ariman. In The Other Side of Perfect, Alina’s friendships go through so much but they are victorious in the end, which I found really heartwarming.
A translated book
I actually haven’t read this one, but it’s on my TBR. It’s a young adult contemporary romance about a girl who works at a hotel that’s hosting it’s annual New Years ball.
A diverse romance
This one’s easy. I almost always read diverse books. Here are a couple of my favorite diverse contemporary romances:
Representation: Asian (Korean, specifically) MCs, Asian author, BIPOC
Representation: Gay rep, BIPOC, anxiety rep
Representation: Lesbian rep, bisexual rep, Jewish rep, BIPOC
Representation: Indian MC, BIPOC, bisexual rep, lesbian rep
A fast-paced book
Aurora Rising is so good! Action-filled, fast paced, and it has so much humor. And the characters were the best.
A nonfiction other than a memoir
I’ve been reading a lot of non-fiction lately, and I’m loving it! Here are my favorites:
An underrated memoir
Malala’s story is so inspiring. And she never stopped, even though she almost died. I read the young readers version and loved it.
A book with fewer than 10,000 ratings on Goodreads
These are all middle grade books that I was recommended in elementary school.
A book with an LGBTQ+ protagonist
Riley from Symptoms of Being Human is gender-fluid, and George from George is a transgender girl. Both of these were beautifully written and I enjoyed them both.
A book by a trans or non-binary author
I haven’t read this book yet, but I really want to. The author, Aiden Thomas, is queer and goes by they/them pronouns.
A book with more than 500 pages
These are both about 550 pages and I’ve really enjoyed both of them. Children of Blood and Bone is a fantasy that takes place in Africa. And Renegades is a science fiction novel about superheroes.
A short story collection
So, the only thing I’ve read that could be classified as a “short story collection” is Stars Above by Marissa Meyer, which is a collection of novellas and short stories about the characters of the Lunar Chronicles series.
A book you want everyone to read
If you haven’t read this, go read it. I can’t express how this series made me feel. The character development, the world building, the gorgeous writing . . . I’m obsessed.
