I took a series of 57 #shelfies for this challenge and picked the silliest. I just moved so while some of my books have made it on shelves many have not. So here is my horrified #Shelfie because I hate unpacking and organizing. #24in48

Betty Makes me smile. Thanks 2y

Today's #libraryhaul was heavy on the YA. Now to read the library books I've had for three renewals before I start any of these. 😝

JennaRoot Lol that stresses me out a little for you! 3y
AmandaL @JennaRoot Ha! As long as no one requests them, I should be able to renew some of them again. 3y

Amazing book featuring a strong Gujarati girl who learns to find her voice through rap. Great Native Hawaiian and Asian American characters, and an ending to make you cry. As an Indigenous person I loved seeing strong Native characters who live life on their own terms. Highly recommended! And I love this cover!!! #weneeddiversebooks #readersunite

"I'm astonished at all the firsts. First time a hot guy paid attention to me. First time I told anyone about my passion for writing rap. First time I told anyone about some of my family problems. Somehow I don't feel so alone. Instead I feel connected and grateful. Also butterflies. But not the usual few. A thousand of them."

A powerful emotional story about getting through difficult times through the support of family (both blood and otherwise) and self-expression. Rani's raps about her experience are so lyrical and filled with such confidence and power, it made me wish I had a friend like her that I could consider part of my family.

#diversereads #booktober thought I'd share a debut by an author friend that I'm excited to read! Features 1990s hip hop, Hawaiian, Indian culture mingled together, should be unlike anything you've read before!

WordWaller Yes!!!! I wanted to feature this one too but I left my copy at home! 3y
missjenniferlowe Heard good things about this book today! 3y

Alright, back from vacation! (I tried to post last night but it wouldn't let me!!) A little exhausted, a lot sunburnt, and needing introvert time (I was vacationing with extroverts! 😱). I missed day 13 of #Augustofpages/#Augustphotochallenge with #bookstacks so here are my ARCs from the bookstore (yes I think these are ALL from the bookstore or my internship), although IDK how the Bell Jar got in there 😂💁🏻

subwayreads I had issues last night too. Thought I was going crazy hahaha 3y

I had high hopes for this book but ended up bailing on it just 20 pages in. I didn't feel great about some cultural appropriation issues, but in the end it was clunky writing (like in the picture above) that sealed its fate.

LeahBergen Sometimes you just gotta bail! 😀 3y
WordWaller I have the ARC of this but I'm not too happy with that sample so now IDK 3y
BookishMarginalia Clunky writing affects me greatly. 3y

Reading this one!

Stacy I really enjoyed this one. I've not come across any other YA that delves into Gujarati culture before. Rani's story is a tragic one for sure, and my heart ached for her. A bit of tightening up would have given it the extra star for me. 4/5 3y
