I know the title seems like I strayed a bit from the original topic - books that feature characters - but, technically, I didn't. I think most of you know this, but for those who don't - #OwnVoices means that a book about a marginalized person (or group) is written by an author of the same marginalization(s). There's been an increase in diverse and #ownvoices novels lately - even though, that increase could and should still be much-much bigger - and I've read quite a few this year.
On this list, I'm going to showcase my favorites - some are more popular, some are less well-known, but all of these are fantastic. So let's get right onto them, shall we?
Have you read any of these novels? What were your favorite Own Voices novels that you've read in 2017?
