Top Ten Tuesday

TTT – Jewish American Heritage Month

Top Ten Tuesday used to be a weekly post hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, but was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl. “It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.” This is definitely something I can understand and want to participate in.

This week’s prompt is “book quotes that fix a theme,” but I never track book quotes. Instead, I’m going to highlight some OwnVoices Jewish books in honor of Jewish American Heritage Month. This has been a really hard month for Jewish people, and there’s been an incredibly large increase in antisemitic incidents around the world. So in light of this, I want to draw attention to some books written by Jewish authors that feature different perspectives on the Jewish experience. 

These are books that I haven’t yet read, but that I’m really looking forward to reading soon. The last two aren’t released yet, but will be soon, and I’ve heard some really great things about them.

  • The Dovekeepers by Alice Hoffman
  • Color Me In by Natasha Díaz
  • The City Beautiful by Aden Polydoros
  • The Wolf and the Woodsman by Ava Reid

What are some of your favorite OwnVoices Jewish books? Have you read any great ones for Jewish American Heritage Month?

  1. I’m really looking forward to Wolf/ Woodsman. The one I’d add here is Hereville (and the entire series) by Barry Deutsch, which makes for a wonderful graphic novel series too. 🙂
