This book was slow for me but damn! I can see why there is a series. Loved that I got to read this in July. Review coming @TheKidUpstairs great suggestion- thanks for the buddy read. @TheKidUpstairs let‘s get a Sept book book going. I have a weird August and will be ready for a buddy read in Sept! I am getting litsy mail out this week. Had a few hiccups, getting all the mail out this week. Sorry for the delay 🥺

TheKidUpstairs Between summer holidays and starting a new position at work, my July got wacky so I'm just starting this one now. Yes, let's definitely do one in September! I'll start thinking of some ideas. Any genre you're feeling? 1w

Ummm 9 out of 10. This book was a fun read. I enjoyed the geeky elements and the honest depiction of black women who love geek/nerd fandom and the struggle within it. Also shined a light on toxic cosplay gatekeeping behavior. Anyone could cosplay, from store bought to handmade, all body types, all genders, beginners to professionals, all races, should enjoy the art of cosplaying. This book gave me spicy fun and had heart. #poc #woc #cosplayer

My fan ideas for this book!!! There are so many but these are my top picks. With the Thor reference in this book of course I went with my Chris Hemswprth!! I am more of Loki‘s girl but I will give a pass for this book. I love Nicole Byer — she gives - Kendra energy!! Also had to Add Lizzo & Chris Evans 🥰 I ship this!!

The story of a black plus size cosplayer & her struggle to fight to be on this competition reality show, without falling to racial sound bits resonates with me. I have been in similar situation because “trolls” want to gatekeep fandoms. I don‘t care if a character isn‘t black, they are going to be black when I cosplay. #representationmatter #blerd #cosplayerofcolor #cosplayforeveryone

Welp before I could get my hands on my two paperbacks — Libby decided I need to read this first. I had this book on hold a while, now it‘s here. This right up my nerdy alley!!

One of my favorite stories - I believe there is series based on these characters. I might have to read it after this little taste of their story. Unless it‘s connected like blackout: the novel - I am not going to read these stories in order. I will say they do get a little dark in some cases. There are not many traditional happy endings.#poc #lgbtq #anthology #shortstories #darkstories #woc #cliffhanger

4 out 5 - interesting anthology. I did not love all the stories but there were a few that I would love to continue reading. The stories range in length, genre, & storytelling. I would recommend this book if you are looking for a quick story spin. Random short stories over coffee would have been great idea instead a straight read through.

So far this book has some interesting short stories. They vary in theme. I am think this might have been fun as an audiobook to hear the the stories. This book might be a perfect idea for a short story a day or reading with with someone. I recognize a few of authors & meeting new ones is always fun. #poc #adventure #diversity #lgbtq #shortstories

@MoonWitch94 Thanks for the tag!! 1. Deathly Hallows had me in tears of course. I ugly cried. 2. Fantasy is my favorite genre, anything is possible. is nothing like seeing an author build a beautiful world to get lost in. 3. The Gilded Ones series is a great example of world building, myth, and adventure.

4 out of 5 — I fully enjoyed this series. The book continues with Bri trying to save her mother. Everything about this book pulled back layers to myths we all have heard. I will say, I am still aching for a wonderful side character, persephone. I still want a book about “Lou” ‘s family pact & maybe an update about Karter & Hermes. Overall wonderful story telling, easy read, & has HEART.

I am going to give this 4.5 stars because you have to read a second book. Lol the story was well done & the pieces came together. I could guess some but there were plot twist. Now I have to read the second book because there is so much more to know. This book weaves Greek myths & history together while giving a modern story. Add to your stack but make sure to add both. I am glad I waited till second book launched last month! 😉#woc #magic

Saw this online and thought this was amazing look at the main characters from this book. I can‘t believe how twisty this book is the secrets that come about. If you like chills, suspense, magic, this is the book. I will shout out one of my favorite characters of this Book “Lou” - he was in for a short time & stole the show in his pages. I would read a series on him and his family 🔥#kitchenwitch #herbs #magic #mystery #woc

Welp this book has me by the throat!! I can‘t get away from the story. Unlike the previous book by this author of a reimagined fairy tale, this book is based off a story of a disciple of Hecate and how myth and truth are woven together to tell the stories of a time before internet. This magical story with real life reference and even more practical responses to magic is amazing. #poc #woc #magical #ny #plants #wlw #lgbtq #hecate #greece #legacy

This is a fun weaving of different authors telling one over all story. I think this is a nice weekend read. I enjoyed how all the stories over lapped each other, but I will say there was a couple I really wanted more from. I have read books from each of the other authors and could see their individual story telling in the grand idea of the a Black Out in New York and various people trying to get to a block party in BedStuy. #poc #love #selflove

I did have a couple of friends out that way and they are safe. These last few days I have been recovering and sleeping due to strong pain meds. I hope this upcoming week, I will be able to move better. Thank you for the love & support. Happy Reading

This book is 8.5/10 — I would have liked more battles, throuple could have been flushed out better, book was left on a cliffhanger, and little more detailed world building. I would recommend this book. Great long weekend read. I really enjoyed this book. #libby #aapi #lgbtq #poc #woc #china #ironprincess

This book is a cross between pacific rim (movie)/hunger games/ with Chinese historical influences. I think this book could have become a series. A lot of people associate this book with handmaidens tale references, I would have to disagree. If you know anything about Chinese history and the gender inequalities during certain dynastys that would make more sense with hunger games and pacific rim sprinkled in there.

AmandaBlaze Alma Katsu's The Fervor. It's good, but hard to categorize. Takes place during WWIi when Japanese Americans were placed in concentration camps across America. Also has some supernatural horror thrown in with demons from Japanese folklore. 2mo

This book… 9 out of 10…truth seen in art. it is a mix of get out & thriller. It is well written giving the prospective of two black students that eventually come together to deal with racist harassment. I think Everyone should read this book. I wanted the end to have something more(like the full exposure of the school), but the epilogue has satisfying end. #poc #lgbtq #woc #aces #spades #racism #ya #getout
