The Color of Love Blog Hop #WeNeedDiverseBooks

I love reading books that reflect the diversity of the world because that's the world I know. Visit your grocery store, library or big box store and look around. You'll see people of all shapes, color, sizes. We are a world made up of individuals. A story world becomes more real to me when it reflects that diversity. So here I'm participating in The Color of Love Blog Hop. Check out the delicious graphic:

Here's a list of my favorite multicultural and/or interracial reads to share with you:

Fall Into Romance Blog Hop

I love everything about fall -- the chill in the air, the changing colors of leaves, fuzzy socks and delicious cups of hot chocolate. So when Sexy Scribblers mentioned they were having a blog hop, I hopped in faster than you can say "Bunny Wabbit!"

My favorite thing about fall though has to be Pecan Pie. Growing up in Bangladesh, I'd never even heard of pecans or pecan pie. It was during my first semester in college and the U.S., I was missing home, when the cafeteria lady nudged a pecan pie in my direction with the words: "Pie fixes everything!"

The first bite and I zeroed in on the rich, sticky goodness on my plate. While I still missed home, that piece of pie did cheer me up and set me on a course of culinary discovery.

Pecan pie again came up when I met my husband-to-be's family. His mother made pie following the recipe she'd received from her mother-in-law. I thought (and still think) it was the best pecan pie ever.

I semi-joke that I said yes to my Darling Hubby's proposal because of the pie...and yes, I did get the recipe after saying, "I do."

Up for grabs, the sexy scribblers are giving away 12 ebooks (various genres). To enter check out the rafflecopter at the end of the post.
