Dear book Gods...Thank you for blessing this author with the gift to tell an amazing story! I‘m on book 5 and my emotions are over the place. I don‘t know if I should cry, scream, shout or fight someone but what I do know is I‘ll forever be a part of Ethic land! 😩😭 #ethicland #ethic5 #ashleyantoinette

Book Raiders in the house!! We dived right into Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi and we can‘t wait to discuss it! Some of these babies have already finished and I‘m loving it especially since it‘s 544 pages.

So my brother from another mother recommended this book to me last year and I‘m finally cracking the seal (I‘ve had it since last year) the first page had me at hello but page 6 has me realizing there will be no sleep for me tonight. Thank goodness I‘m on spring break!!! I‘m no where near the end but I already have a feeling this book will have me in tears.

-Coach Brody Ghost was an amazing read and I cannot wait to have a mini discussion with my book Raiders! bravo Mr. Reynolds! There are quite a few lessons that I will point out to the group. #bookraiders #ghost #jasonreynolds #bookraiderpick

Our Pearls pick for the month of April is Born A Crime by Trevor Noah. There are so many history lessons that Mr. Noah is bestowing upon us that I never knew about and I‘m in utter shock. I‘m only a few chapters in and this one line made me pause and say it out loud a few times over. “Why teach someone Latin when his only purpose was to did holes in the ground”.

SW-T The history bits impressed me. Didn‘t realize how little I actually knew about apartheid til I read this 😕 9mo
Bookpearl @SW-T I knew some but clearly not what he experienced. Have you read Kaffir Boy? 9mo
SW-T No, but looks like it‘s going on my TBR! Thanks for the recommendation of 9mo

The Book Raiders loved Miles Morales so much that we are reading another title by Jason Reynolds. We‘ve been hearing great things about Ghost so if it‘s anything like Miles Morales we won‘t be disappointed.

Miles Morales: Spider-Man | Jason Reynolds

The Book Raiders will be reading Miles Morales for the month of February thanks to the generosity of a fellow teacher. I am still weepy and in disbelief of the kindness that was shown to me. I cannot thank her enough but surely will hug her and tell her I love her every time I see her and I need to make sure she knows that she gave these babies a gift that will keep on giving. #forevergreatful #bookraiders

anytime a book has me staying up until 1:30 and tossing & turning AFTER I have closed the book means the author has done more than an amazing job creating a fictional character so real that he‘s buried deep within my soul I had to close the book again at Chapter 18 due to my blood pressure rising but I already know E2 & E3 will be purchased today If anybody tells my hubby I purchased 2 additional (don‘t judge me) books, there will be hell to pay.

@MinDea 1. I love just about everything he touches... 2. Yes a/c is a must as I‘m asthmatic and humidity is not my friend. 3. I usually read with a hot cup of tea and TV on low for background noise. 4. Closed tight spaces 🙅🏽 5. Sometimes I do, they‘ve been so vivid that they were scary at times. #HumpDayPost
