Week Four of OUR Favorites, Day Four :Favorite Authors- ELLEN OH + Ellen Oh's Prophecy/Warrior & Sarwat Chadda's The Savage Fortress/The City of Death giveaway!

We're approaching our last two days of our Favorites Month and It's been just an amazing ride compiling a few lists of our favorites!

As we reach the event's end, we realize this list would not be complete without today's favorite:

Ellen Oh

I have to say I fell in love with Ellen waaaay before I read her books. I came across this thoughtfully honest post she wrote about "Why being a POC author sucks sometimes" and still, after a year of it lounging in my web history, It still manages to make an impact on me every time I read it!

As the creator of the #Weneeddiversebooks movement, she understands how important it is to have stories that represent all readers and that's all we ever wanted to do with this book blog! Yea, we may not have a lot of followers like the book blogs that review all the popular books but every time we get that one email from someone who says that they love our blog. It reminds us that Ellen's venture was more than just a hashtag, it was a Movement!

Ellen Oh isn't just an author selling her books. She's selling her drive, her passion and her dreams. Diversity in Books is as important in books to her as they are to us, and it's the reason why we she will always be more than just a writer to us. She is a friend, She is an Idol and best of all, She is a Trailblazer!

*Excuse me for my bumminess, but doesn't Ellen look cute?*
