You Should See Me in a Crown (Book Review)

Hey y’all! It seems like everyone’s been talking about this book and for good reason. My library had over a month long waitlist for the audiobook and I’m really happy I stuck it out. I listened to this through the CloudLibrary app, as I do for most audiobooks.

Trigger warnings: death of a parent, microaggressions, forced outing, panic attacks

Training School for Negro Girls (Book Review)

Hey y’all! This is the last book I’ll be reviewing from the readathon. Training School for Negro Girls was an interesting set of short stories. It reminded me of Heads of the Colored People which I read a few stories from for my African American Literature class last year.

Such a Fun Age (Book Review)

Hey y’all, so Such a Fun Age was the book club pick for The Reading Rush and I ended up loving it. If you want to learn more about some controversy surrounding The Reading Rush and how it negatively affected the Black reading community, I’d highly recommend checking out this video.

Such a Fun Age is also the Unfriendly Black Hotties book club pick for August. They’ll be having a live show at the end of the month to discuss it. I’m really looking forward to that live show because I really want to dissect this story with other readers and I think it will bring forth some great discussions.
