This week’s Top 5 Tuesday topic is Top 5 Books with Disability Rep, which I’m going to twist to talk about books with disability rep on my TBR instead. My TBR is out of control, and I’ve been dealing with a reading slump, which means there are a lot of amazing books that I haven’t gotten to yet. I don’t know when I’m going to get to any of these books, but I am excited to read all of them.
Get a Life, Chloe Brown by Talia Hibbert – I have heard so many amazing things about this trilogy, especially about the representation in it. The main character in this book is a chronically ill computer geek, who wants to get a life, and she has a plan and a list to help her get there. The fact that the main character makes lists makes me love her before I even open the book. This book is also a romance, which makes me even more excited to read it.
The Kiss Quotient by Helen Hoang – I’m going to start by asking myself how I haven’t gotten around to reading this book yet!? That one of the major downsides of reading slumps, a book that I know I’ll love, has been staring at me for months, but instead of picking it up, I reach for my phone to see if there are any shiny Pokémon hanging around. Anyways! This book is also a romance, and the main character has Asperger’s. I’ve heard two main things about this book: firstly, it has good autism rep, and secondly, it has many steamy scenes.
Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo – Technically, I’ve read about 60% of this book, but then I took a break because it was too heavy to carry around, and I haven’t gotten around to finishing it yet. I’m not going to spend too much time talking about this book because so many people have read it, but one of the main characters uses a cane. From what I remember, it was nice to see a main character who is a badass and has a disability that affects everything they do.
Love from A to Z by S.K. Ali – This is another book with many different types of rep in it, and I’ve heard wonderful things about the different types of rep. I’m including it on this list because one of the main characters gets diagnosed with multiple sclerosis not long after the disease took his mother. I’ve heard so many great things about this book, and that the romance is cute, and I’m looking forward to reading it.
You Should See Me In a Crown by Leah Johnson – Of all of the books on this list; this is the one I thought for sure I would get to, but alas, sometimes the book slump wins. The book features lots of different types of rep, and I’ve heard amazing things about the different types of rep. I’m including it on this list because the main character’s younger brother is immunocompromised. Unfortunately, I don’t know enough about this book to know how big of a role this younger brother plays, but either way, I’m excited about this book and all of the amazing reviews I’ve seen for it.
