S. Krishna's Books ― Featuring Reviews of Translated and Culturally-Diverse Books

In this edition of RecBLOG, we'd like to highlight S. Krishna's Books, a literary blog updated by Swapna Krishna, a book editor and reviewer, as well as contributor to Book Riot.

Her blog caught our eye because we follow the Twitter hashtag #WeNeedDiverseBooks, and noticed she reviews not only books in translation―such as Haruki Murakami's Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki and His Years of Pilgrimage and Anne Holt's 1222―but also reviews many books with a fresh perspective by authors who write in English, but come from a different background, such as Japan's Kazuo Ishiguro, Holland's Michel Faber, Vietnam's Bich Minh Nguyen, Sri Lanka's Ray Jayawardhana, and Afghanistan's Khaled Hosseini

In her most recent review, for example, she talks about "Written in the Stars" by Aisha Saeed, whose main character is a teenage Pakistani-American with strict Muslim parents, and a secret boyfriend.
