All American Boys | Jason Reynolds, Brendan Kiely

I started this today. I finished this today. I could not put it down. Two boys, one Black and a victim of police brutalitu, the other white a witness to the beating who considers the cop to be family. A whirlwind. Really well done. The narratives weaved in and out brilliantly. I loved this. It takes such a great look at race and being a teenager trying to understand and graps whats happening in this country. Highly recommend! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

So I started reading this yesterday and so far it is really damn good. Now mind you I‘m learning loads too because this isnt a part of history I learned about, wars between different African countries and Italy. I knew absolutely nothing about the women warriors who fought. This is just a really intriguing read with really great world building so far!

I was in the mood for something different so I went for this. And different is exactly what I‘m getting. This is an interesting book so far. The concept on its own had me really intrigued but I‘m finding this characters to be really intriguing as well.

This is my favorite book of Jackson‘s so far. I already know that I‘ll end up reading again simply because of how it ended. The characters are so well done. The way the story was told was ingenious. The pacing was great and the way the mystery unfolded was so well done.

Start reading this yesterday and so far I love it! I‘‘ already half way through. Love the main character Alaine, she is hilarious. Love that this book dives so much into the history of Haiti as well. The pacing is great. And I‘m loving all of the different ways she is telling this story. Really enjoying it so far!

The kid and I are doing a buddy read of this book. I knew I wanted to do that since finding out that Never Caught had a young reader‘s edition. It‘s always important for me to be able to discuss topics like slavery with my kid. This gave us an opportunity to learn together and discuss.

This book is pretty good. It‘s easy to read and very informative. And it‘s piece of history I didnt know about until recently.

The full review is now on my blog for this book. http://thenextbookonmylist.blogspot.com/2019/06/the-skin-im-in-by-sharon-g-flake...

I really enjoyed this. The writing is incredible and Flake does an amazing job dealing with and discussing both classism and colorism but it also takes a look at the school system and how one person trying to make change has a lot to overcome.

Even though I was gone I was still reading so I‘ll be randomly posting some of the books I was reading #inmyabsence! I just read this and I love Menon‘s writng style. I love the way she writes young adult romance. I love the way she portrays the mix of Indian and American culture. In this book I enjoyed the way she discussed complex teenagers/parent relationships and the way she handled accepting ones body and what its capable of. She makes...

This book really started to pick up to me after the first 100 pages. Thats when I really got into the swing of things. I found the story as a whole enjoyable but the only character I actually enjoyed was Fabiola, her cousins got on my nerve even though all of them were well developed. I loved that this story highlighted what it is like making such a huge adjustment moving to the US trying to navigate social norms

I loved this book. Loved the way the three different narratives converged and separated. Loved the way Moore explored the different aspects of the world from colonialism, racism, colorism, classism, superstition and religion. Her writing was haunting and unsettling yet stark. I couldn‘t put it down.

I read this book in a day. It is incredibly well layered. Not only does it deal with classism and colorism, but it also looks at how one person trying to make a change has a lot to overcome. This book is so painful because it hints at the worst parts of people and how some of those traits can appear in young people. I highly recommend. It‘s a quick read but it‘s full of complex issues.

So February is coming. #readBlackwomen is happening! And I‘m also going to begin my theme for this year which is reading #BlackClassics. Each month for the rest of the year I‘ll be reading at least two books considered to be classic literature written by a Black author. These are my first two selections!

Nebklvr This is great! I have out from the library “I know why the caged bird sings”, i know. It is a travesty that i haven‘t read it yet. For some reason, I prefer the more obscure books and have to force myself to read the well-known classics even though I know I will love them. Look forward to learning about other books and reading your reviews. (edited) 9mo
