In case you missed it, we had a lovely read through THORN this week for our Diverse Universe reading tour post. Other notable bloggers have reviewed LUCRETIA AND THE KROOMS by Victor LaValle, SO LONG BEEN DREAMING, edited by Nalo Hopkinson, THE STEAMPOWERED GLOBE, edited by Rosemary Lim, which features Singaporean writers, and Thomas King’s GREEN GRASS, RUNNING WATER. Our very own Charlotte from CHARLOTTE’S LIBRARY (who gave us the heads-up on this whole gig) is posting later today on Virginia Hamilton’s 1989 1978 JUSTICE AND HER BROTHERS, which she believes just might be the very first spec fiction novel published in the US with an African American girl as the main character. (I’m a little chagrined that I’d never heard of this book before today!)
There’s SO much to read and peruse in the list over at The Booklust Blog. Please don’t miss it!
