Not exactly what #PrideMonth means but I'm always down for a Pride & Prejudice retelling. Of course knowing the original made the plot predictable, but the modernization worked & I appreciate the commentary on gentrification. I didn't buy Zuri's emotional whiplash in the second half; it was too back-and-forth. Rearranging a few plot points could've helped that. Overall it was just okay but the cover is A+ #ya #weneeddiversebooks #teachersoflitsy

This might be the raciest #ya book I've ever read. Not complaining! I thoroughly enjoyed it even though it reads like fanfic, and it certainly helped satisfy my #Malec withdrawal. This is basically what I wanted the #Shadowhunters tv series to be: Alec & Magnus going on adventures, getting into trouble, saving each other, and most importantly being in love. Great read for #PrideMonth too. #weneeddiversebooks #teachersoflitsy #summervacation

I had time between meetings today so I stopped by the campus bookstore and snagged these two titles. #bookhaul #pocauthors #readdiversebooks #ownvoices #weneeddiversebooks #yalit #blitsy #blacklitsy

HOTPock3tt On the come up was AMAZING!! My fave read of 2019! ♥️😃 1mo
Chelleo @HOTPock3tt yasssss! I‘m looking forward to it. Will likely bump up to the top of my TBR list. 1mo

TheWordJar I have On the Come Up waiting for me on my bookshelves, and I‘m on the hold list for Dear Martin. I‘ve heard such good things about them! 1mo
Karkar I just finished Dear Martin....so good!!! 1mo
tjwill Both great choices! 1mo
rachelm Awesome choices! Loooved On the Come Up. Can‘t wait for the movie! 1mo
Chelleo @Karkar Sadly, I‘ve owned the ebook for months and still haven‘t read it but I couldn‘t pass up the print deal. 1mo
MidnightBookGirl Loved On the Come Up! 1mo
CoffeeNBooks Dear Martin is really good! 1mo
RebL I just finished OTCU maybe 5 minutes ago. I like it even better than THUG. 1mo
Chelleo @RebL Really?! Ok, I can‘t read both books at the same time, how am I going to choose?!?!? 😭 1mo
RebL @Chelleo Yes. I liked both, but Bri is so much more herself (for a fictional character). She‘s not a navel gazer, though her tendency to act first and think later gets her in trouble. I like her arc. Plus the wordplay is fun. 1mo
Chelleo @RebL It‘s a great review! You should post it. Thanks! 1mo
RaimeyGallant On the Come Up is so good! 1mo

Haven‘t been able to find anything that really pulls me in so I‘m checking this one out. #currentlylistening #audiocommute #audiodriving #readdiversebooks #weneeddiversebooks #ownvoice #pocauthors #blacklitsy #blitsy

MaureenMc I recently listened to this audio, too. Great story, and I really liked the narrator. 1mo
Louise How was it? 4w
Chelleo @Louise I put it down. It was slow moving and I just couldn‘t get into it. I‘ll revisit it soon. 4w
Louise Thanks. 👍 4w

I had to renew my library card today, so of course I checked out some books while I was there! #LibraryHaul

I also went to my mailbox for the first time in almost a week and found some #LitsyLove from @Rissreads and @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks 💕 Thank you ladies!

Then I did some shopping for my #SummerSolsticeBookExchange! I love shopping for swaps!!!

Eyelit I just checked out the future is feminist the other day! 😃 1mo
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks Yay!!! I love the elephant 🐘 card!!! ❤️❤️❤️ 1mo

Why have I been so drawn to romance this year? 🤷🏻‍♀️ This one is lovely! It would be obvious to compare it to The Rosie Project (protagonist on the Austrian Spectrum finds love!) But it‘s very different! #weneeddiversebooks

This book is super crude and quite weird but I kinda love it? It feels very authentic teenage boy. #YA #BisexualBooks #WeNeedDiverseBooks #LGBTQBooks
