Hello friends!! I want to apologise for not putting up a post last week but due to my exams I couldn’t schedule a post. Today I bring you a super awesome post by Haley @ Caffeinated Reader talking about the some great diverse books which she not only loved but also gave her some of her favourite characters!

Hi everyone, I am super honored to be able to join in this feature. When Krisha announced it, I jumped at the chance. And then promptly became the worst person to get a hold of, so, please, give Krisha a medal for dealing with me. 

Since I started book blogging, I’ve been very happy to announce that my reading has diversified by like 200%. [Only a slight exaggeration] That being said, I wanted to show off some of my new favorite characters because of this diversification in my reading!

Lilian from Descendant of the Crane- Joan He

There’s a great cast of characters in this book, I love them all but I really adored Lilian, Hesina’s sister. She’s loyal, kind, and has an eye for fashion, what is not to love about this? Lilian’s love for her family is something that stuck with me and I couldn’t help but add her to my favorite character list as I watched just how wonderful and loyal she was. This book is referred to as the Chinese Game of Thrones because of the political intrigue, but I think it’s so much more than that. 

Descendant of the Crane

Altair from We Hunt the Flame- Hafsah Faizal 

Yet another book with an amazing set of characters, I loved every single member of the Zumra squad. There is one in particular that I favor though, and that would be Altari. He is the king of sass in this book and his interactions with Nasir made me laugh every single time. I actually don’t laugh that often when I read, I may find something funny, but I won’t actually chuckle, but I definitely did with this book. This was all due to how hilarious the Zumra were together. I’m not sure that I will be able to last the wait for We Free the Stars in July.

We Hunt the Flame (Sands of Arawiya, #1)

Arrah from Kingdom of Souls- Rena Barron 

Kingdom of Souls ended up being one of my top books for 2019 and Arrah definitely ranked into my favorite characters list, and quite near the top at that. She is all about her family and friends, she could have simply thought about herself, but the sacrifices she makes for those she loves only shows how brave she is for them. Even when her family may be the ones who are causing catastrophe, she loves them. Anyone who cares that deeply is worth some recognition in my opinion.

Kingdom of Souls (Kingdom of Souls, #1)

Lei from Girls of Storm and Shadow- Natasha Ngan 

This is the second book in the trilogy, Girls of Paper and Fire being the first. I wanted to go with this one because the character development made me love Lei in a different way than I did in the first. She goes through a lot, so much in fact that it’s not something that you can ever just come back from and still be the same. There are things she uses to deal with the PTSD of what she’s been through and though it’s not healthy, it’s so real and raw that my heart went out to her. I loved her in both books so far, she’s another character who cares so deeply she’ll do anything for those she loves.

Girls of Storm and Shadow (Girls of Paper and Fire, #2)


Haley is a musician who has always had a literary craving so she decided to go full time with books while she has the chance to. As she says on Twitter, she’s here to dazzle you all with her lacklustre reviews, and to bring you all things bookish on her blog!

You can also find her on Twitter and Instagram.
