It‘s official...Angie Thomas and I are besties (she just doesn‘t know it yet). I was telling her that THUG was the first book where I saw myself in the Mom! The music references (Juvenile) made me feel officially old when I read it 😂🤣😂 She apologized 😂😂😂 She was great...if she‘s anywhere in driving distance...get in your car and go! #blacklitsy #blitsy #pocauthor #readdiversebooks #ownvoices
What do you do when there‘s a heatwave and you can‘t even bat your eyelids without breaking into a sweat? Try and find a cool spot for a long day of reading.
I strongly recommend this for teenage readers. If you need to take a break from studying, something to read between classes, or on your commute this is a good choice.
Trigger warning - there is a chapter dedicated to her eating disorder in the ARC.
Slowly emerging from my reading slump with these current library check outs. Looking forward to re-reading Ntozake Shange‘s Plays One and diving into Patrice Lawrence‘s latest YA novel Rose, Interrupted. The Zadie Smith is looking a bit dauntingly dense tho—have you read it? If so I‘d love to hear your impressions in the comments! 💗
Just decided to make this my next read. Hope it lives up to the hype!
