  1. Thank all of you for providing such great posts and reviews for diverse books and authors!

    For 2017, there’s a number of YA books by/about people of color that I’m really excited about. 🙂

    A Crown of Wishes by Roshani Chokshi
    Wintersong by S. Jae-Jones
    Flame in the Mist by Renee Ahdieh
    American Street by Ibi Zoboi
    Poison’s Kiss by Breeana Shields
    The Truth of Right Now by Kara Lee Corthron

    I’m sure there’s more on the way that I haven’t heard about yet, but it’s shaping up to be a fantastic year.

    Have a wonderful holiday!

  2. One of my favorite books of 2016 was, It Ain’t So Awful, Falafel by
    Firoozeh Dumas. It’s nice to read humorous stories of first and second-generation Iranians growing up in America. There’s a need for more Persians depicted in YA and middle-level books.

  3. I really enjoyed Enter Title Here by Rahul Kanakia and am looking forward to reading Iron Cast by Destiny Soria.

  4. Thank you for the giveaway! I’ve got a lot of these in my to read list. Happy Holidays and reading!

    1. I forgot to add my favorite book of 2016: We are the Ants by Shaun David Hutchinson, Blood Passage by Heather Demetrios, March graphic novel Trilogy.

      Most looking forward to: When Dimple Met Rishi and Library of Fates just to name a few.

  5. I hope you’re all enjoying your hiatus…with many wonderful books, of course.

    Favorites of mine from this year were Juliet Takes a Breath, Labyrinth Lost, and Timekeeper. Two not published in 2016 but ones I read and loved this year were Akata Witch and All American Boys.

    For 2017, I already have preordered The Hate U Give and History is All You Left Me. I know there are several more that I want, but I’ll probably only think of them as soon as I post this comment. Ooh, I remembered one right before I was about to submit, The Inexplicable Logic of My Life.

    Thank you for all your wonderful posts this year. I don’t always comment, but I’ve loved reading what you all have to say, and I definitely appreciate the many books you’ve helped me find. To more of the same in 2017!
