[BHE 172] YA Books on Diversity, Adult Fiction and Book Sale Finds, and New Kindle Titles


Fats here.

Every Sunday, we share books that we have discovered through the library, online sources, and people’s recommendations. Last week, I shared a title list of multicultural children’s books that I borrowed from the library. I have quite a selection of books to share with you today. Young Adult titles dominate my title list. I also have adult novels that I borrowed, bought, and downloaded.
I must say, it has been quite a remarkable book hunt!
