I don’t know about you guys but I always shied away from nonfiction books because well…I wanted stories and fiction offered me more in the way of stories than nonfiction. Nonfiction, to me, was all about dry, boring facts. Boy, was I wrong or maybe I’m just old and nonfiction books for children and young adults nowadays are well presented and fascinating. Maybe I appreciate nonfiction more now than I did when I was a teenager. Who knows. The point of all this blathering is that it is February (from today onward, oh where does time go so quickly?), the month of chocolates, hearts and here at The Book Wars, nonfiction children’s literature.
It is also Black History Month. Obviously, we do not intend to celebrate Black History just one month a year. We are all about diverse books here and include books by POC authors all months of the year but since this month has been specifically designated as Black History Month in US and Canada, we will do something a bit extra. You can look forward to book reviews, discussion articles, lists and all things awesome.
You will also probably see some reviews of fiction novels because February is a month of releases and we have books that need reviewing. So it’s not going to be all about nonfiction but the majority of it will be. We’re going to work hard to present awesome stuff but then we always do!
