A fast-paced thriller. The mystery wasn‘t as hard to solve in this one but it still retains the dark, foreboding atmosphere and feverish pace of the first.
A more academic styled read about historical figures who fought racism which bleeds into the present day artists, intellectuals, and politicians fighting for freedom. It was hammered home that the Black elite are expected to stand for their people while white stars are allowed to be just themselves.
These essays are a book lovers dream. Engaging and thoughtful. Lively and powerful. An easy way to come up with lists of new-to-me authors and to remember past favorites. I will say it is formatted by time period so if you, like me, have trouble with feeling a disconnect with the older, more formal, writing styles, then just skip around but read them all!!
Two young girls from vastly different tomes switch places. As the young girls attempt to fit into their “Times”, they learn alot about the differences in language, propriety, and possibilities. This felt like an old story told again in some places; however, that is because I have read so many of these.
A quote from James Baldwin regarding the “race question”.
This book focused on the ambition, triumphs, failures, and leadership styles of four U.S. Presidents. It is immensely readable and well worth the time.
A soapy, intense, angsty teen murder mystery. I can‘t believe how much i enjoyed it.
Written in an atmospheric and haunting style and with characters you are tempted to call out warnings to, this book was just amazing.
This book will come out in october. It is by a Turkish journalist who was given a life sentence after being convicted for sending “subliminal messages” during his tv program. Please get the word out. A life sentence!!
This is a sometimes funny, all of the time crazy book.
The next nonfiction book....
This book led me down many a google rabbit hole and i expect it to continue to do so. It has raised many questions and concerns. I would recommend it and ask everyone to keep it in mind when making choices in future elections.
New books arrived!!
The story was good, the writing so-so.
This is intriguing and disturbing. Will look into more info on the War on Drugs and the 4th amendment after reading this.
