This was sitting patiently in my TBR stack for a while gathering dust. Glad I brushed it off and read it finally. Complex, dramatic, humorous, and heartbreaking, it was also very empowering. Told in multiple voices, on the surface it‘s about wife number four joining a family and their struggles to adjust. In truth, it‘s about Bolanle living life on her own terms, even though it‘s hard. Beautifully told.

When Ren Ishida‘s older sister Keiko is murdered, he leaves Tokyo to tie up her affairs & discovers how little he knew about his beloved sister. Not quite a who-done-it, this book was unexpected & while not really for me, it‘s a lovely novel.

Recent bookmail, including a YA subscription book box focusing on BIPOC authors & artisans that I backed on Kickstarter! This is the first box & I have credits for two more; I will likely save them for the fall since I‘ll have a lot less reading time once camp starts (in 1mo!!!) I haven‘t opened it yet, but I‘ll do an unboxing post when I do because I‘m super excited about this one!

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. 😐 1mo

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
