Booklust: A More Diverse Blog Tour For one week in September (the week of the 23rd), we want ALL OF YOU fantasy/sci fi/magical realism readers (with blogs and without) to read a fantasy/sci fi/magical realism novel written by a person of color.

And share your thoughts on that one book.

Stories of circuses traditional and bizarre, futuristic and steeped in tradition, joyful and heart-breaking!

Come one, come all, and enjoy the literary show unfolding!
