New Crayons & Updates

New Crayons is when I share what new books I got this week. Brought to you by Susan at Color Online

This week I bought no new books and I didn't get a chance to go to the library either :(
But I did receive

Marcelo in the Real World by Francisco X. Stork
-thanks Edi!

I also got another book to read and giveaway (*hint hint* it was featured in one of my recent WoW posts!).

Now for some giveaway news: my contest for Gringolandia ends tomorrow at 11:59 pm. So hurry and enter! Click the picture in my sidebar to enter,

Also Color Online is having a giveaway in honor of BBAW week. You can win anything in their prize bucket, and the prize bucket has some pretty awesome books (if I win I'm asing for a Jacqueline Woodson book so I can finally read why everyone loves her so)! It started yesterday and ends Sept. 17. It's limited to U.S. residents only. Also if you enter, please mention that Reading in Color sent you!

In other news, please vote in my poll! It's important, it asks whether or not you would like to see me review MG books. It would only be a once a month thing.
I was wondering if any book bloggers or authors are interested in guest-blogging here? Especially new, up-and-coming authors and bloggers. Leave a comment or email me if you are interested.
Link news: I found out about this blog from the Brown Bookshelf so thanks BB! Over at Publisher's Weekly, Elizabeth Bluemele has written some great posts about poc in YA/children's lit. She has also created an amazing list of books about poc. They are children's books, MG and YA. I have so many new titles to add to my tbr/wishlist! Thanks Elizabeth for this list!

Finally, my birthday is Sept. 18! Just wanted to share that :)


  1. At the rate I'm going, I'm going to be the last person to read Marcelo in the Real World by Francisco X. Stork. Can't wait to read your review.

    Thanks for the shout for our giveaway. We must get you some Woodson. :-)

  2. Ari, you are going to love Marcelo in the Real World.

  3. Whoo Hoo! Your birthday is exactly a week after mine. In case I forget to tell you Friday, I hope you have a very happy birthday!

    And I already voted in your poll, but I say YES to reviewing MG novels. There aren't enough MG reviews on the blogs, so I love to read them.

  4. Happy early birthday! Also, I = so envious of your copy of Marcelo in the Real World. That looks great. Have a great week!

  5. thank you everyone for the birthday wishes and opinions on reviewing MG books!
    I'm so super excited about reading Marcelo

  6. Enjoy Marcelo! I'm looking forward to your comments!
