Her Body and Other Parties | Carmen Maria Machado
post image

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. 3mo
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. 3mo
Lauram Thanks! It‘s only a few blocks away from a work site of mine. I will be happy to stop and fill up 3mo

Yeah, so...I'm an idiot and didn't grab this when it was featured in an #Audible sale. My mistake. My hold came in from Libby, and I am falling in love with Elizabeth Acevedo's narration!! I may have to go ahead and use a credit for this one, because I can see myself re-listening to this in the future! #audio #audiobook #popsugarreadingchallenge #pop19 #classics #retelling #ownvoices #diversereads #diversebooks

Sorry for the delay but this is headed your way Carrie!

I'm not entirely sure what I just read lol. Equal parts anti-war satire, social critique, musings on family & dealing with grief, ending with a fever dream of revelations...this book was indeed weird & lacked cohesiveness, but I like weird books! I've heard his non-fiction reads better. He has some powerful 1-liners & I felt some emotion towards the end, so I do see potential! Maybe ⭐️⭐️💫?

CSeydel Ack, I need to get a move on - I‘m still reading 4mo
lele1432 @CSeydel I did feel like that one needed a lot of focus to take it all in! 4mo
