Cannibal | Safiya Sinclair

"Sunset. That blood-orange hymn / combusting the year, nautilus chamber // of youth's obscurities, your empty room / for psalms, lost rituals."
-"In Childhood, Certain Skies Refined My Seeing"

Cannibal | Safiya Sinclair

"The word "cannibal," the English variant of the Spanish word *canibal*, comes from the word *caribal*, a reference to the native Carib people in the West Indies, who Columbus thought ate human flesh and from whom the word "Caribbean" originated. By virtue of being *Caribbean*, all "West Indian" people are already, in a purely linguistic sense, born savage."

I feel like I‘m always in the middle of a different short story collection. Between school and my many jobs, sometimes my best options for still finding a story to love are graphic novels and short stories. I‘m new to N. K. Jemisin so looking forward to her work #NKJemisin #SpeculativeFiction #Afrofuturism #ScienceFiction #SciFi #BlackAuthors #Ownvoices

Bingo Love Vol 1: Jackpot Edition | Gail Simone, Marguerite Bennett, Gabby Rivera, Alyssa Cole, Tee Franklin, Shawn Pryor

This felt like the Notebook but Black & Queer. The jackpot edition includes more stories and sets up the next volume in a big way. This my second read of the story. I love it so much 🥰

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5

Started this book in January and finished it today...because one must take time with poetry. And because, you know, life.

Difficult Women | Roxane Gay
Bailedbailed

Difficult woman by Roxane Gay.
I'll admit I hated that book!

The subjects were far too close to home and I didn't want to relive all that again.
This book is a did not finish for me.

whatsthEStorey I hear you. I was reading Not That Bad and had to stop, not because it wasn‘t a good book, but it was too painful at that moment. 9mo
