Heya! Welcome to The 2012 Multicultural Book Challenge hosted by NC @ Trulybookish and KM @ One page at a time highlighting fabulous YA books written by multicultural or ethnic authors OR featuring multicultural/ethnic minorities as main characters.
I featured this on my other blog cece reading and writing safari but wanted to feature this on blog as well.
The goal of this challenge is to read 12 YA books for the year as indicated above. The books can be newly published or been around for a long time.
Every month, either NC or KM will be featuring a book or author that meets the criteria and do a book giveaway to those participating in the challenge. All you have to do is review at least one book per month that meets the criteria, upload that review to the Google Doc that will be on either of their sites and you will be entered to win!
For January, NC will feature and give away Living Violet by Jaime Reed: a YA paranormal novel with an African American main character written by an African American author. Be sure to check.
For the month of February, KM be hosting a Native American-themed interview and giveaway with Sonia Gensler, author of The Revenant. So look forward to that!
This is a chance to win a new book every month! There are so many great books to choose from, but if you need some suggestions, check out this list on Goodreads.
