5 Faves By & About People of Color

December 2, 2014

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.

    I always love to see The Shadow Hero pop up on a list! I have a huge author crush on Gene Yang and think he can do no wrong. 🙂

    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. 🙂

    Great list! I haven’t read any of these titles yet, but you’ve sold me on Pointe.

    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!
