This week’s topic:
Black & Orange Covers
Favorite books that have black or orange on the cover
(I selected a couple books from my collection that have those colors on the cover.
I haven’t read any of them.)
Twisted: The Tangled History of Black Hair Culture by Emma Dabiri
A nonfiction book about Black people’s hair. I think the U.K. title for it is Don’t Touch My Hair. It’s so confusing when publishers give the same book two different titles.
Stephen Biesty’s Cross-Sections Castle by Richard Platt, illus. by Stephen Biesty
Children’s picture book about what life’s like in a castle
Reaper Man by Terry Pratchett
The second book in the Death subseries of the Discworld fantasy series
Marcy and the Riddle of the Sphinx by Joe Todd-Stanton (illus.)
The second book in a children’s fantasy picture book series that touches on myths
The Joy Luck Club by Amy Tan
A historical fiction novel about four Chinese women who immigrated to the U.S. and meet weekly to play mahjong and talk about what they left behind and what they hope for their daughters
Beauty and the Beast: Retold From the Jeanne-Marie Leprince de Beaumont Original by Agnese Baruzzi (illus.)
A children’s picture book on the Beauty and the Beast fairytale. Both illustrations and cut-outs are used.
