The book got more serious and mature as it progressed but even the serious things had a touch of humor behind them. Had to read it at home because it made me laugh out loud, though mostly the quiet-trying-to-keep-it-to-yourself kind. Overall, an enjoyable read.

Memoir written in verse. Could quote every poem on every page. Simply lovely.

I'm happier news, I am giving #Uppercase another try and got this amazing looking SF book, along with a bookstore-themed infinity scarf and feather and star pin, both of which I'm wearing. Lovely. #authorofcolor

I picked this up the other day from Bookworks and read it in one night. Super easy and quick read that left me unsatisfied. This really needed a better editor. Meandering asides, repetitive stories, and unnecessary potshots at old colleagues detracted from a really great story that I'm glad is being told. But the execution needed work.

I'm hoping the movie is better.

Homegoing: A novel | Yaa Gyasi
post image

I have mentioned before that I don‘t keep my books after I read them. That is not entirely true. I have about 10 books that I have kept over my lifetime because I loved them too much to give them up. Homegoing by Yaa Gyasi is one of them. That is the gorgeous author at the top left, along with the 5 books she said have influenced her writing the most. #AGameOfFavorites #AuthorofColor

Asian lady superheroes kicking butt! On sale! It's fun, ridiculous, and positive representation for people who look like me! #dealalert #ownvoices #authorofcolor
