Top Ten Tuesday: Asian Pacific American Heritage Month

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week's topic is...

Asian Pacific American Heritage Month!

Since May is Asian Pacific American Heritage Month, I thought I would share books written by authors, who are of Asian or Pacific Islander descent. These are all books I have read, but I also have a ton on my TBR.

In a Nutshell Reviews

In a Nutshell Reviews are my version of mini-reviews, because sometimes, you just want the highlights.

Julie Murphy
Series: Dumplin', #2
Age/Genre: Young Adult, Contemporary
Publisher: Blazer + Bray
Rating:  4 out of 5 stars
It is a companion novel to Dumplin', which follows supporting characters from the first book in the months after Willowdean's star turn in the Clover City pageant.

Millie Michalchuk has gone to fat camp every year since she was a girl. Not this year. This year she has new plans to chase her secret dream—and to kiss her crush. Callie Reyes is the pretty girl who is next in line for dance team captain and has the popular boyfriend. But when it comes to other girls, she’s more frenemy than friend. When circumstances bring the girls together over the course of a semester, they will surprise everyone (especially themselves) by realizing they might have more in common than they ever imagined.

My Week in Review

It was another tough week for us here in the US. My heart goes out to all those, who were affected. I taught high school science for 12 years, and I get really emotional when things like this happen in our schools.

However, it was a big week for us here at WLABB. We celebrated 5 years as a blog, and I was really happy that my co-bloggers had time to reflect on this happy occasion. I was also happy to post Kiersten's reviews. I bet some of you were confused to see a non-contemporary book on the blog, but that's why I love having co-bloggers.
