#DiverseReads

It‘s a quiet Sunday morning, and Froedrick is overseeing my reading.

This letter to a daughter is about how difficult it is to discuss racism and sexism and the scary things happening because of those fears in America and even Canada.

I don‘t have kids, but I find it hard to discuss these things and put the awful feelings into words with other adults. I‘m not sure how parents manage.

Tamra It‘s a fine line that is difficult to walk and it depends on the situation/subject. I don‘t want my kids growing up paranoid & cynical, but they can‘t be blind either. 😐 2w

So hard to convince your friends to go on a treasure hunt with you amirite?! I loved this book. The art is great, there‘s diversity, the story is good. I love the small town setting, very atmospheric. 5/5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ #MisfitCity #GraphicNovels #DiverseReads

Evening read. I‘ve heard good things about this satirical Nigerian slasher novel & I‘m looking forward to reading something so dramatically different from everything else I‘ve read so far this year.

This was a really enjoyable book. I love when authors narrate their books. It adds so much enthusiasm. The stories in this are mostly funny, I definitely LOL‘d a few times and definitely relatable. Ayser and her mother‘s back and forth really entertained me. #readwomen #diversereads #readingwomenchallenge - religion not my own

This was cute! It revolves around the life of Jordan, co-captain of the cheerleading team who is ok with being out. Cooper is the captain of the football team and he struggles with hiding the fact that he‘s gay and is totally in love with Jordan. Then there is Hannah, Jordan‘s BFF who becomes friends with a new kid who‘s deaf. To top it all off, there is prom! Total HS drama but I like the addition of diverse characters.

Peddler410 YA? Can it go down to middle school? Or is the intended audience adult readers? (edited) 2mo
LibrarianJen @Peddler410 The audience is definitely more for teens. I think it would be fine for an 8th maybe 7th grader. It‘s simple enough that way. There is drinking at a party though so that may be objectionable. 2mo
LokiDokey I'm going to have to recommend this to Dev. Sounds like something she would love. 😁 2mo

Enjoyed this #YA #QPoC read. I usually don‘t read romance, but I liked this one. I couldn‘t stop reading so I didn‘t go to bed until 4am this morning 🤦🏽‍♀️. I liked that it was natural and normal to be queer in Bird‘s community. It wasn‘t about the turmoil of Bird accepting who he was, it was about him coming to terms with the unpredictability of life, of him letting himself love and be loved, and coming to terms with loss. #diversereads

#unpopularopinion This is one of those books that makes me feel like I‘m not smart enough to “get it”. It won a National Book Award. It has to be amazing. It was just lost of me I guess.
It‘s about grief and dogs and writing/writers and suicide. A lot of author name dropping and some minor philosophizing. #readwomen #diversereads #librarybook #readharderchallenge - 2018 AOC award winner
