Library haul inspired by Trump's DACA decision and my desire to learn more about how we got here on immigration. Oh and the Pamela Paul book because it's about books of course🤣

This is scarier and more disturbing than a horror novel. Should be required reading for all Americans.

This book was so compelling that my husband allowed me to read it to him during a long road trip! We both agreed that it is a great story but that there are parts we just don't believe.

The Hate U Give | Angie Thomas
post image
Pickpick

This YA contemporary inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement is a 5 star read. It made me cry, laugh, rage, shout at my car audio system, and sigh over it's adorableness. The story is timely and important, but is also a great page-turner. The characters aren't just good or bad, but rather real people. I absolutely loved it and hope everyone will pick it up.

So good you guys....soooooo good! The best book I've read so far this year. Great representation, excellent story, just amazing in every way. I'm off to buy the second book in the series. Thank God for one click! 👍🏼❤

Leo1733 I finished the second today, the third doesn't come out until August. 😔 August! Also, I think book #2 was even better than the first, enjoy! 3y

I don't know why I was intimidated by the thought of this book because it is 'rusting' fantastic! Magic based on earthquakes? Yes please. Kick ass and diverse female characters? Absolutely. Chapters told from alternating character perspectives? I am here for that.

Difficult Women | Roxane Gay

They tried to remember the before, when they were children and there was only one place to call home, one country, the flag billowing on windy days in front of homes up and down every street - bands of red and white, fifty stars, one nation, indivisible until it wasn't, how quickly it all came apart.

The final book in the Bill Hodges trilogy was another homerun by a master storyteller. There aren't many author that can squick you out and make you cry in the same book. I'm just sorry to have finished my #firstreadoftheyear

This book is giving me all the feels! Although the author had a horrible childhood that makes me sad, the discussions of all the John Hughes films fill my heart with joy. His movies were and ARE my faves with The Breakfast Club being my all time favorite film. ❤️❤️❤️

Trying to complete the #bookriot Read Harder challenge with this novel from the Decade I Was Born (1970s). This beat up copy came from a church sale. I don't love the copy but the story itself is excellent so far... a lyrical portrait of the west... just gorgeous!

Alfoster Oh yes, so good!😀 3y
