I hope you had a fantastic February. I sure did and there were lots of awesome books that released this month. As you guys may already know, Rashika & I have started a monthly feature focused on diverse books that we launched last month. You can read more about it here. This month, Rashika was also lucky enough to do a super fun Q&A with author of The Education of Margot Sanchez, Lilliam Rivera. So be sure to check that out too.
Anyways, I’m here to share with you all the massive list of diverse books that released in February. Click on the covers to take you to the Goodreads pages.
February Releases To Get Excited About
These are such beautiful covers, aren’t they? I’ve put several of these on hold at the library, and I’m looking forward to reading them when they arrive.
I’ve also read four books from the above list, and I’ve decided to do Twitter pitches (less than 140 characters) of those 4 books for you.
American Street by Ibi Zoboi
“A hopeful & heartbreaking young vibrant Haitian immigrant’s story that’s rich in its depiction of culture, family & first love.”
The Education of Margot Sanchez by Lilliam Rivera
“Want to read a book that’s about a boisterous Puerto-Rican American family and one girl who does not know where she fits in?”
The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas
“A life-changing, poignant and incredibly relevant book inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement that EVERYONE should and MUST read.”
10 Things I Can See From Here by Carrie Mac
“A book that does a terrific job at portraying anxiety in a very real way. Bonus? It has some great family dynamics as well as a really cute F/F ship.”
