New Crayons

New Crayons as always is hosted by the wonderful Susan at Color Online
This week was a great week for books. I received some YA books about people of color to giveaway throughout the month (I won't share the titles though, because I want it to be a suprise).
I also got....

1. Silver Phoenix by Cindy Pon
I did a little dance when I got this book. I'm so excited to read it! Enter my contest for a chance to win your own copy :)

2. Chanda's Wars by Alan Stratton
-from Jana at HarperTeen. Thanks so much Jana!
Sounds sad, but good.

3. Lockdown by Walter Dean Myers
Finished in one day. So good and time willing it will be my Male Monday review tomorrow. Also from Jana :D

4. The Ring by Bobbie Pyron
-Won in a contest from the HappyNappy Bookseller. Thanks Doret and Bobbie! Loved the synopsis of the book!


  1. Silver Phoenix is a very dance worthy book. The Ring is great as well. Enjoy your books.

  2. I am dying to read Silver Phoenix! Got my own copy! <33

  3. Chanda's Wars sounds so good. And you can never go wrong with Walter Dean Myers. He is so fantastic. We actually created a vlog of "boy books" yesterday and I chose Monster as one of my top 3!

  4. Very cool books! I read Doret's review of the boxing title. And the others look equally interesting. So many books, so little time. Happy reading.

  5. I like your wishlist. Even im waiting to read Does My Head Look Big in This? by Randa Abdel-Fattah.


I love to hear from you!! Thank you for sharing :) And don't be Anon, I try to always reply back and I like to know who I'm replying to ;)
