Two for Tuesday – New Year, New Books

Happy New Year! We’ve successfully made it into 2019 and to rein in the new year, I purchased more books. New books also mean new pictures, so here is a shot I took right after I opened my package.

I’ve decided to treat myself, especially since these books were in my TBR for so long and I couldn’t stop thinking about them. These two should be great follow ups to The Education of Margot Sanchez.

I’ve been writing poetry since the 7th grade and I got into Spoken Word Poetry freshman year of high school. That was also the year I watched Elizabeth Acevedo perform Hair on Youtube. I’ve read so many great reviews for The Poet X and I can’t wait to finally read it for myself.

I’ve been following Nic Stone on Twitter for most of 2018 so it’s about time that I support her through more than retweets. I’ve only heard great things about Dear Martin, many compare it’s importance to The Hate U Give. This is the exact kind of book that I go for. I’m so excited to start it!

Have you read these books?

What are your thoughts?

What are you adding to your library for 2018?
