ABC Book Challenge ·S·

I saw this challenge back at The Bookish Chick and decided to give it a try (here’s to hoping I don’t forget in a couple of days)

The challenge goes like this:

  • I’ll do it once a week
  • Each post is dedicated to a letter and so I have to name memorable books I’ve read containing the letter
  • I’ll take a page of thebookishchick and also add books from my TBR

WEEK 20

What Are You Reading Wednesday·Ravensong

I saw this meme back at The Introverted Booknerd and it goes like this:

What Are You Reading Wednesday was created by RhiannaMarissa, and Kendall. The idea is to create a space for book lovers to share, discuss, and recommend the books they are currently reading and loving. All you have to do is answer the questions about your current read and then head over to one of the host’s sites to link up your post! Have fun and don’t forget to check out everyone’s posts as well!

So you are looking for diverse fantasy

..and you don’t know where to start? Today’s your lucky day! Because I just finished a great book inspired by chinese folklore and it inspired me to share some diverse fantasy books I’ve read (or I’ve been meaning to get to) this year

I know most fantasies are centered around european folklore, and there’s nothing really wrong with that (I do love Tolkien) but there’s also so many different cultures in the world with their own fairy tales and myths and all the folklore that most of us know nothing about! So this post is dedicated to those kinds of fantasies

All the covers have a link to the goodreads page so that you can add the book to your TBR with no trouble!

Title: Wolfsong

Series: Green Creek #1

Author: T.J. Klune

Publisher: Dreamspinner Press

Format: Kindle Edition

Length: 400 pages

Rating: 4/5 ★★★★☆

Summary:

30853358Ox was twelve when his daddy taught him a very valuable lesson. He said that Ox wasn’t worth anything and people would never understand him. Then he left.

Ox was sixteen when he met the boy on the road. The little boy who talked and talked and talked. Ox found out later the little boy hadn’t spoken in almost two years before that day, and that the little boy belonged to a family who had moved into the house at the end of the lane.

Ox was seventeen when he found out the little boy’s secret and it painted the world around him in colors of red and orange and violet, of Alpha and Beta and Omega.

Ox was twenty-three when murder came to town and tore a hole in his head and heart. The boy chased after the monster with revenge in his bloodred eyes, leaving Ox behind to pick up the pieces.

It’s been three years since that fateful day—and the boy is back. Except now he’s a man, and Ox can no longer ignore the song that howls between them.

Comments on Colorism in Latinx Culture

I never thought I’d actually write a post about this but I just finished Blanca and Roja and had some thoughts.

On that book we have two sisters as the main characters: Blanca and Roja, both of them latinas. Blanca is light-skinned and blonde while Roja has darker skin and brown almost black hair with hints of red. The way they are treated differently by everyone, even in their own family is an important point in the story and I highly recommend reading it if you enjoy magical realism.

“Everyone is on your side. You pretend they’re not. You pretend we’re the same. But people look at us differently. Boys. Teachers. Our own cousins. Even people who look more like me look at you like you’re better.”–Roja

First of all, let’s make a couple of things clear: Colorism is not the same as racism but it is rooted on it. Colorism is considering someone of the same race inferior because they are “less white”. This is usually done subconsciously and perpetuated thanks to imperialism and euro-centric beauty standards – Continue reading “Comments on Colorism in Latinx Culture”
