5 Faves By & About People of Color

I’m participating in the Month of Faves hosted by Estella’s Revenge et. al. Here are five of my faves from this year:

Five Faves

1. The Shadow Hero by Gene Luen Yang — Lots of great humor here. Plus: superhero!

2. To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han — FAKE DATING. Enough said.

3. The Great Greene Heist by Varian Johnson — Super fun book about a lot of interesting personalities.

4. Pointe by Brandy Colbert — Theo is one of my favorite main characters of the year.

5. The Invention of Wings by Sue Monk Kidd — I don’t normally have an interest in novels about slavery, but I really found myself caught up in this book club pick.

  1. Thanks for this list! I’m doing the Diversity on the Shelf challenge this year so I’m always on the look out for books that feature more diversity. 🙂


  2. I saw Gene Luen Yang speak at Small Press Expo last year while he was still working on Shadow Hero. I can’t wait to read it!

    I’m trying to diversify my reading experience and make sure my kids have diverse reading experiences too. So glad you posted this!
