Diverse Reading Guides & Sensitivity Reads
 

As a sensitivity reader, editor and reviewer, I've always had an interest in inclusive, diverse literature, and representation of minorities and more sensitive topics, especially when it comes to childrens- and young-adult fiction. I've personally found a lot of healing in these stories about experiences that aren't always easy to talk about. Growing up, I didn't have a place to easily find these stories, so I decided to create one for anyone looking for it. 
Most of these topics I've reviewed from a place of personal experience (grief, chronic illness, disability, etc.) and for others I've consulted fellow readers for their own voices opinion and feedback (e.g. novels on cultural- or racial discrimination). My goal is to create a safe libary-collection, where every reader can find themselves on the page.
Each list contains my books I've read and recommend, divided by age-category, including a short description and link to their respective Goodreads pages for easy adding. Trigger warnings are provided where relevant.

Note: these are running lists that are perpetually updated and changing as I read more.

Genre Favourites and Thematic Recommendations
 

Although my genre favourites may speak for themselves, thematic recommendations are based on topics that I'm personally passionate about, or topics that have been requested by you. These are usually a little more "niche" or specific than my genre-favourites and may overlap with some of my diversity-guides. Feel free to send me a request for any other topic you'd like to see covered.

Additionally, you'll find a link to the page where I list my favourite reads, by year in which I read them. If only for a reference to myself for the types of things I liked during the different "seasons" of my life.
