Welcome to weekend links! I love this day because I get to share the best-of-the-best of what I have found on the Internet this past week. This week I have noticed too many wonderful diverse book recommends for young readers to NOT share. I always admire the dedication and passion for these bloggers when it comes to sharing quality book titles that families of all ages will appreciate. Enjoy!
Svenja from Colours of Us always have amazing booklists. Here are two worth checking out:
Puerto Rican Children’s Literature for #SocialJustice: A Bibliography for Educators
MCBD co-founder Mia Wenjen also never disappoints with her robust booklists. Here are two great examples:

In honor of the fact that September 15 to October 15 is National Hispanic Heritage Month, wanted to add my own booklist to this list. Here are 33 Latino Middle Grade Chapter Books You Should Know About.
No Time for Flashcards has some wonderful Books About Dads here.

Ascension by Hannah Rials
Enter this world of vampires, set in the south, and realize you are being pulled in more—and deeper—with each page.
Steeped in the mystery, intrigue and rich history of New Orleans and the secretive world of the Deuxsang, teen vampire, Cheyenne, and her forbidden love, Eli, embark on a very different, and vastly more dangerous, journey as the net of betrayal tightens around them. This intense and fresh novel is enchanting, engrossing and impossible to put down right up to the cliffhanger ending. Remember, the end is not the end.
What an extraordinary debut novel with new and intriguing twists on vampires—a strong female protagonist as one. I already can’t wait for book two.-Jill Murphy Long, author of The Conduit
This book is by the far the BEST YA/Adult fiction that I’ve read in a very long while. So exciting!-Rebecca F
The wait is over-Ascension is here! Thrilling and entertaining, like the experience on a crazy roller coaster. Hannah has grown into the most amazing writer. Watching her journey has been as much fun as holding the book in my hands. A “must read” for YA and thriller fans!-Valarie B
