Many thanks to Naz from Read Diverse Books for creating this tag. This is the first one that I've taken part in, by the way - so here we go!
I decided to include a majority of books that I have read and would recommend, in the attempt to keep my TBR pile to a minimum and increase yours with the best books I've read (cue evil laugh).
Find a Book Starring a Lesbian Character
The Telling by Ursula K. LeGuin - One of my favorite books from LeGuin's Hamish Cycle (which is infinitely better than her Earthsea Series; I'll fight you on this), which incidentally has a lesbian, POC main character.
Find a Book with a Muslim Protagonist
I Am Istanbul/Istanbullu by Buket Uzuner, translated by Kenneth J. Dakan - I adored this book from the female Turkish author, which takes place entirely within Istanbul's Ataturk airport. Read my review here.
Find a Book Set in Latin America
A Planet for Rent by Yoss, translated by David Frye - Amazing Cuban speculative fiction. See my review here.
Find a Book About a Person with a Disability
Find a Science-Fiction or Fantasy Book with a POC Protagonist
The Devourers by Indra Das - This book is hands-down my favorite book that I stumbled upon while keeping this blog. And it will come out on July 12, 2016 in the US! I need more people to read it so I can geek out with other people, instead of just by myself in my room. Read my review here.
Find a Book Set In or About Any Country in Africa
Sin is a Puppy that Follows You Home by Balaraba Ramat Yukubu - The first full-length novel translated from Hausa to English and published by one of my favorite Indian publishers, this short book is a soap opera in printed form. Read my review here.
Find a Book Written by an Indigenous or Native Author
Moonshot: The Indigenous Comics Collection, edited by Hope Nicholson - A beautiful collection of graphic stories by Native North Americans. Also the cover is amazing. Read my review here.
Find a Book Set in South Asia
The King's Harvest by Chetan Raj Shreshta - Two beautifully written novellas that bring the little-known, former Himalayan kingdom of Sikkim to life. I bought this when I visited Sikkim, and I loved the memories of the trip that this book evoked. Read my review here.
Find a Book With a Biracial Protagonist
Blackass by A. Igoni Barrett - This is kind of cheating, because Furo isn't technically biracial: through a strange, Kafkaesque transformation he ends up becoming a different race. Yep, one day he wakes up and instead of being a cockroach he's suddenly white. There's a great sense of the absurd and some wonderful satire about postcolonial societies, too. Review coming soon.
Find a Book Starring a Transgender Character or About Transgender Issues
Pantomime by Laura Lam - Not one that I've read, but from the reviews it's a YA fantasy novel about an intersex individual who begins to get magical powers and then joins the circus! Sounds like something I would like. By the way, I found the recommendation on this reddit thread.
That was fun! I highly recommend all of these novels (the ones I have read, at least), and I'd love to discuss them with other readers. What have you got?
Since I'm supposed to tag 5 people, I think I'll go with a few from the IFFP Shadow Panel last year. That would be:
