Blogs Her Color: Color of Choice, Welcome!

Tomorrow, Jan. 5 I will be Blogs Her Color's Color of Choice. This means my blog will be spotlighted at their site and hopefully, I'll get some new visitors :) I'm writing this post today, because I may not be on my computer for very long tomorrow since I have finals to study for =/
I'm honored to be the Color of Choice blog and I hope everyone checks out the site. Blogs Her Color is a wonderful, warm community of African American female bloggers. I highly encourage everyone to check out the site and the blogs listed in the Directory
Reading in Color is a blog I started back in July of 2009 due to frustration and love of books. In June of '09 I had discovered the fun world of teen book blogs and I grew frustrated by the lack of books about people of color being reviewed for teens. I wanted to find new titles to read about teens who looked like me or were different from the white norm. Reading in Color is a place where you can always find books for teens being reviewed about people of color (poc), you will see very few books on my blog with a teen white protagonist.
So to all the ladies visiting from Blogs Her Color, welcome and I hope you poke around a bit. I recommend you check out my sidebar for giveaways, challenges I'm participating in and my reviews.
Some of my favorite and/or most popular posts
Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!

  8. congrats on being spotlighted, I hope that it helps spread the work about your blog! I definitely agree that there aren't enough reviews about books whose main characters are poc (and it's something I should do more of myself).
