The Water Dancer: A Novel | Ta-Nehisi Coates
post image

“To forgive was irrelevant, but to forget was death.”
This book should be required reading. Absolutely stunning tale of salvation and courage. Loved every minute of it.

Science fiction at its absolute best. The books in this series have all been thrilling to read. The writing beautiful. The story compelling. I‘m excited to start the latest in the series.

Took much longer than it should have for me to finish this, but I thoroughly enjoyed it. Very interesting take on developing crime fighting methods and thoughts about women especially mothers as killers.

Loved this book and this passage really spoke to me:
“And people should see it. We‘re different, and they need to accept our difference.”
I recommend this book to anyone interested in what it means to be black/a woman/abused/strong/a survivor.

This was so good. I learned so much about Trevor Noah‘s life and about South Africa. Very insightful and thought provoking. This should be required reading. ☕️📚

Becoming | Michelle Obama
post image

This book has given me life... I‘m so happy that Michelle Obama shared this beautiful story. That this girl from the South Side of Chicago became the 44th First Lady is inspiring, and I enjoyed every word of this book. One of my favorite quotes from the book is:

“For me, becoming isn‘t about arriving somewhere or achieving a very aim. I see it instead as forward motion, a means to reach continuously toward a better self.”

Really enjoyed A Great Reckoning and looking forward to reading this! Good mystery, excellent writing. Took me too long to finish (totally my fault/easily distracted lately), I really enjoyed the book.

Excellent fantasy novel. Can‘t wait to find out what happens in the book in this series. Rhysand is certainly an intriguing character who will undoubtedly challenge every expectation and belief that Feyre has including her feelings for Tamlin. Enjoyed this and looking forward to reading more.

I bailed on this one after a few weeks of trying to get through it...just could not bring myself to really care about the main characters— found them to be too self-obsessed and perhaps at the end of the day simply not people I‘d like very much. The book just wasn‘t my cup of tea.

Just finished, and thoroughly enjoyed this book. It‘s mainly a coming of age tale, but also a story about the village, the collective that each of us has to put us back together when our pieces seem shattered beyond repair. Life is part comedy, part tragedy, sometimes great, and sometimes traumatic but we have to find a way to keep living like Julia. Great read.

The Power | Naomi Alderman
post image

“There‘s never been a right choice, honeybun. The whole idea that there are two things and you have to choose is the problem.” Rarely are things simple, life is full of complications and this book puts that simple truth on full display. Thought provoking and compelling storytelling. I thoroughly enjoyed it and highly recommend this book!

Renegades | Marissa Meyer

Loved The Lunar Chronicles, and I‘m totally excited to start this book! Thoroughly enjoyed this story. Lots of twists and turns that leave plenty to explore in a series. I cannot wait to find out what happens to Nova and Adrian - what will become of the Renegades & Anarchists? Which side will Nova choose to support? Is one really better than the other?

Behold the Dreamers | Imbolo Mbue

#BlackHistoryMonth Reading something timely about race, immigration, family, and capitalism by a WOC.

NikkiCureton Excellent book to start a conversation about immigration and the American Dream. Not sure how I feel about the end for the Jonga family, but it‘s certainly thought provoking. 2y

So excited to be starting this. The first in the series, An Ember in the Ashes, was excellent!

NikkiCureton Excellent! Laia and Elias are such compelling characters, and Tahir‘s writing keeps me on the edge of my seat from start to finish. Waiting (not very patiently) for A Reaper at the Gates! 2y

A Colony in a Nation | Chris Hayes
post image

"There are fundamentally two ways you can experience the police in America: as the people you call when there's a problem, the nice man who pats a toddler's head and has an easy smile for the old lady as she buys her coffee. For others, the police are the people who are called on them. They are the ominous knock on the door, the sudden flashlight in the face, the barked orders."

As a person who often says no even when I'd really like to say yes, I'm hoping this memoir will challenge and encourage more yeses in my own life.

Negroland: A Memoir | Margo Jefferson
post image

"Race, gender, and class are basic elements of one's living. Basic as utensils and clothing; always in use; always needing repairs and updates. Basic as body and breath, justice and reason, passion and imagination. So the question isn't 'Which matters most?,' it's 'How does each matter?'"
Excellent, thought provoking memoir
