Today I was blog hopping and I’m super happy I did, because I found this post at Library Hungry.  As you can see, it’s a tour of books in the Speculative Fiction genre.  It’s celebrating POC authors, so I’m definitely joining in.

Sounds to good to pass up, doesn’t it?

If you’d like to check it out just click on the button above to read all the details. There are different links to books that fit the tour requirements.

The book I’ve chosen to read is:

A Wish After Midnight

A Wish After Midnight by Zetta Elliott

Genna is a fifteen-year-old girl who wants out of her tough Brooklyn neighborhood. But she gets more than she bargained for when a wish gone awry transports her back in time. Facing the perilous realities of Civil War–era Brooklyn, Genna must use all her wits to survive. In the tradition of Octavia Butler’s Kindred and Madeleine L’Engle’s A Wrinkle in Time, A Wish After Midnight is the affecting and inspiring tale of a fearless young woman’s fight to hold on to her individuality and her humanity in two different worlds.
