This week’s characteristic: Ethnic Characters
I struggled to find five books easily within my virtual bookshelves. I mostly read YA, and YA books tend to be whitewashed so it’s difficult to pinpoint ethnic diversity. I also find it personally difficult to differentiate between skin colours. But I did find five covers!
Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden
Magic Under Stone by Jaclyn Dolamore
Across the Universe by Beth Revis
Foxfir by Karen Kincy
My favourite cover ever with an ethnic character on it is :
Huntress by Malinda Lo
Snow, weapon, and a bad-ass chick all on the one cover. I also love how simple the presentation is, with no flourishes. I’m in love!
Which is your favourite of these five covers?
