Recently we concluded a very successful Color Me Brown Challenge and last week I shared that we would follow up with a new feature: Color Me Brown links. Every Thursday, I'll post links to reviews that feature POC characters. Great way to find new reads and an opportunity to promote some cool bloggers.
While I love discovering great reviews, feel free to drop me an email with your suggestions. You can write me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Now on to this week's links:
Bayou, Vol. #1 by Jeremy Love. Scroll to the near bottom of the post. Find this at Eva's A Striped Armchair. Eva is a voracious reader and her reviews will cause you to pick up more books than you can read.
Like Water for Chocolate by Laura Esquivel. Find this at Amanda's The Zen Leaf. Amanda and Jason are a very cool couple. Must be very fun to be their kids.
No God But God: The Origins, Evolution, and Future of Islam by Reza Aslan. The participants in the 50book POC challenge at Livejournal is a treasure trove. This review is from Wordsofastory.
The Secret Keeper by Mitali Perkins. Find this at Edi's Crazy Quilts. If you don't know, Edi is my wise mentor. And I've made it clear what I think about Mitali.
