Xolo Book Review


Reading Through A Decolonized Lens


Xolo Book Review is not your typical book review. Using the guiding questions below, each Xolo Book Review analyzes a book through a decolonized lens. The books we review earn a 1-5 rating on the Xolo Scale, determining how well it represents and celebrates BIPOC experiences. It’s essential to critically assess the literature we consume and enjoy because of its ability to influence our beliefs and societal values.

Self-rank your favorite books using the scales below and see how it compares to books we’ve reviewed. All reviewed books are available for purchase in our online bookstore.
