Favorites from around the web this week.
My Favorite on Girlxoxo.com From This Week
- 10 Movies You Didn't Realize Were Based on Books ... Die Hard & Shrek - didn't know!
- 10 Recent Science Fiction Books That Are About Big Ideas. I've only read Feed by Mira Grant from this list - which is not what I would classify as science fiction - but it was really good.
- Recommended Reading: People of Color in Fantasy Literature. This list is from about 2009 - but it's a good place to start - you can't go wrong with Nnedi Okorafor, Colson Whitehead & Octavia Butler.
- US Books on Board for Young People (USBBY) Outstanding International Books List - an annual honor list of outstanding books set in different countries, and available in the United States - for kids from 1st grade onwards to young adult.
