Every now and again I find the urge to share things I have loved on the Internet. So, here are some recent-ish things I have loved on the Internet that you may not have seen:

BookRiot is celebrating a BlackOut with a full day of content by black authors, about black issues, including this post on Moving Past Octavia Butler by local BAMF Justina Ireland.

Birthday by Birthday, a Starter Library for Young Feminists, by Melissa Albert for B&N Teen Blog

Reproductive Rights Don’t Start and End with Abortion, by Meagan Rivers

5 Reasons I love Writing Lesbian Romance, by Rebekah Weatherspoon (her first post for AfterEllen)

Author Alisha Rai Storified a great bunch of helpful tweets with diverse Romance recommendations (obviously Second Position by Katherine Locke is a personal fave, and I can tell you from hearing Sonali Dev read aloud at an event we both did that A Bollywood Affair is a must-buy, but I’m excited for the rest!)

Where Our Magic Lives: a Queer Latina on Magical Realism, by Anna-Marie McLemore for Diversity in YA. This is a gorgeous post on the importance of the cultural origins of magical realism as rooted in oppression, by the author of the incredible new magical realism YA, The Weight of Feathers.
