Behold the Dreamers | Imbolo Mbue
post image
Pickpick

An emotional rollercoaster of a story that gives the reader a glimpse into immigrants‘ lives. Mbue does a great job of sharing each character‘s point of view. I finished it last night at 11:55 at night...I just couldn‘t put it down. Needless to say, I am a bit tired today. We also had our first snow of the season during the night.

TheBookAddict @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks yes, they are. We are lucky to live in a place surrounded by big beautiful trees. 😊 🌳 🌳💕 3w
Cathythoughts I loved this book ❤️. And I love my country but I wish we had snow too 3w
TheBookAddict 🙌🏽 💕📖💕 Where are you from? It‘s very pretty to look at and enjoy when you can be at home or if you like to be out playing in it, but it‘s not that great when you have to drive in it. 😔 3w

Might as well read while we wait for the class to show up, since everything else is done.

Cathythoughts Loved this one 4w
TheBookAddict @Cathythoughts I am enjoying it so far. I‘m not that far into it, but I‘m already bracing myself for what feel is coming. It‘s making me hurt for what will probably happen to Jende and Neni, all they want is a better life for themselves and their children. 💕💕💕 3w

Her Body and Other Parties | Carmen Maria Machado

I worry sometimes that when we think of “diverse books“, we revert to thinking about kids/YA and school reading lists. I've written today about the importance of ALL readers diversifying their personal reading lives. Diverse reading makes us better people, and the world a better place. Plus, Her Body & Other Parties is a PERFECT spooky Halloween read! http://keepingupwiththepenguins.com/diverse-books-reading-lists/ #DiverseBooks #DiverseReads

A #mustread for everyone, whatever your thoughts or views on the lgbtq+ community. A heartbreaking retelling of what happened on bus 57 in Oakland, what led to those events, and what preceded them. The author does a great job at sharing both sides of the story and the flaws in our “justice” system.

Yestetday I started and finished listening to this heartbreaking and uplifting memoir by JVN. I love Queer Eye even though I cry while watching every episode. The Fab 5 are wonderful individuals who do so much for others. JVN is open and honest about his struggles, accomplishments, and aspirations in this memoir. I definitely love her more after listening to this. Yes queen, do you!!!💕💕💕 #JVN #QueerEye #diversebooks #LGBTQ #QueerBooks #memoir

A powerful story but I had to keep taking breaks because it was a little intense. There is a lot of violence.

The characters are very different from each other and all have some obstacle to overcome before embracing their destinies. They are all likeable and in likeable 3 dimensional characters which makes the trials they go through very intense and personal. Highly recommend. #diversebooks

Finally!! I've been hoping I could catch this title on sale, especially since the digital version is normally $24 for some reason...🤔 Super excited! On sale today only I think. #kindle #kindledeals #kindledailydeal #diversebooks

I also had a chance to visit my old church and was so glad to discover their #afrocentric #LittleFreeLibrary I plan to ship a few books back to be included in the library because the titles in there were so old. This library could really benefit from some #ownvoices and #diversebooks as it sits in the center of a black neighborhood and is located next to the community center and daycare. #blitsy #blacklitsy

Chrissyreadit I struggle too with this at my clinic. A lot of the donations I receive have animals with characters, and not an overt ethnicity, but I definitely do not get many African American or Latino books and I do serve a diverse group of kids. 4mo
BeaG That's cool! 4mo

Lauram Where is it located? I‘m in Cle and am happy to donate/drop off. 4mo
Chelleo @Lauram That would be great! It‘s located at 6600 Lexington Avenue, Cleveland OH 44103 in front of the Fatima Family Center. I plan on mailing a few to my old church which also sits on the property. 4mo
Lauram Thanks! It‘s only a few blocks away from a work site of mine. I will be happy to stop and fill up 4mo
