This is gripping, horrifying, and tragic...another shameful chapter in US history. It's an important read.

I think I'll need to read this again with other people so we can talk about it as we read along together. Have you read this? Thoughts?

She is majestic! This memoir is raw, hysterical, & moving. It's an interesting peek into Black Broadway & Hollywood of the late 70s & 80s. Has anyone written a book about that yet? I need more. If you read this (and you should) listen to the audio version. She reads it herself & it is a gift!

BellaBookNook Oh I love watching her on Blackish. I am going to have to check out this book. 2y

This was more enjoyable than I expected given the mixed reviews. It read like fanfiction, and it lacked the magic of the original series. But I was happy to revisit old favorites. I'm excited to see the stage production!

A little reading by the fire. This volume was both action-packed and uneventful. 🤔 #netflix #yulelog #walkingdead #robertkirkman #pagetoscreen #getlit #kvnreads17

Lyrical, beautiful, melancholic...she says so much with so few words. I loved it.

Shadowhouse Fall | Daniel Jos Older

Seriously, if you're not reading Daniel José Older you are doing yourself an absolute disservice. We go back to his vibrant, DIVERSE Brooklyn for another action-packed journey. This is a Brooklyn where I want to be! And this cover!

The Handmaid's Tale | Margaret Atwood

I reread this to refresh my memory before watching the TV show. And whoa...it's a lot scarier reading it in this political climate than when I read it in high school. For those of you who watched the show already...did you like it? How faithful is it to the book? #thehandmaidstale #margaretatwood #dystopia #resist #nolitetebastardescarborundorum #getlit #audible #kvnreads17

BooksintheDelta There are some differences, and a clear hard lean on the topics that reflect current political discussions, but a well done and entertaining interpretation of the novel. 2y
missberlyreads @BooksintheDelta thanks! I'm wicked excited to binge this weekend! 2y
