CR: The Hate U Give

👋🏾🖐🏾

what are you currently reading and is it moving you ?
I’m reading The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas and imagining all the scenes in my head and I’m so happy about the increase in diversity in the book world.

I mean, growing up, I read alot of books but I’m sure if I kept a list of them, I can probably count how many had a POC or diverse main characters or relatable social stories.

So, here is to more positivity and acknowledging that the world is full of different people who will like to be represented 🖐🏾🖐🏼

February TBR

I got to complete a whole book in January even though January felt like forever. That one book was important to me to complete because I’m trying to find a way to keep my hobbies (reading, filming, blogging & making wigs) and succeed in PA school.

If you’ve been following my blog or Instagram or Youtube, you’ll know that PA school is really really hard & time comsuming. I almost want to stop blogging but then, that thought makes me really sad. So, I will keeping trying to balance both since they’re a part of me.

Here, I have my very small February TBR list:

1. When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Manon

2. Year of Yes by Shonda Rhimes

3. There’s Someone Inside Your House by Stephanie Perkins

Have you read any of this ? And what books are you reading this month?

New Year, New Book

November TBR

I read three books in total for October so I thought why not aim for three books this month? I know I can atleast finish them **fingers crossed**

The three books with that honor are:

The Statistical Possibility of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E Smith. “Quirks of timing play out in this romantic and cinematic novel about family connections, second chances, and first loves” -Google Books

We Need New Names by NoViolet Bulawayo “We Need New Names tells of the life of a young girl named Darling, first as a 10-year-old in Zimbabwe navigating a world of chaos and degradation with her friends, and later as a teenager in the Midwest United States, where a better future seems about to unfold when she goes to join an aunt working there”- Wikipedia

Let The  Sky Fall by Shannon Messenger “Seventeen-year-old Vane Weston has no idea how he survived the category five tornado that killed his parents. And he has no idea if the beautiful, dark-haired girl who’s swept through his dreams every night since the storm is real. But he hopes she is.
Seventeen-year-old Audra is a sylph, an air elemental. She walks on the wind, can translate its alluring songs, and can even coax it into a weapon with a simple string of commands. She’s also a guardian—Vane’s guardian—and has sworn an oath to protect Vane at all costs. Even if it means sacrificing her own life. When a hasty mistake reveals their location to the enemy who murdered both of their families, Audra’s forced to help Vane remember who he is. He has a power to claim—the secret language of the West Wind, which only he can understand. But unlocking his heritage will also unlock the memory Audra needs him to forget. And as the storm bears down on them, she starts to realize the greatest danger might not be the warriors coming to destroy them—but the forbidden romance that’s grown between them” – Google Books

New Book Alert: Hers to Tell

Emem Uko sent this beauty to me!  Hers to Tell and I can’t wait to read it. Suspense overload🔪.

Synopsis : “Born with OCA1b, Cara Ella Smith couldn’t be more different from her sisters. The need to move far away from family lands her in Miami, where she becomes a writer. Her first novel indirectly aids Detective Abram Jonah in the arrest of a vile human being, and she becomes a target as a result. On the day of her 8th book signing event, she is almost run down by a vehicle, which she narrowly avoids because she is pulled away from the road by a dashing hunk, Jet Meyer. There is a nagging fear that tugs at her. Jet is hiding something. He skillfully evades personal questions that Cara asks him. Cara is plagued with anxiety and nightmares from her near-death experience, but deep down, she knows that her distress has more to do with Jet than the incident.”

I’ll be posting up a review at a later date.

Happy Reading,

 

CR: Through To You

I’m starting my October Tbr list and the first book will be Through To You by Lauren Barnholdt.

Here is an synopsis from Simon and Schuster website.

“It starts with a scribbled note in class: I like your sparkle. Harper had casually threaded a piece of blue and silver tinsel through her ponytail in honor of school spirit day. And that carefree, corny gesture is what grabs Penn Mattingly’s eye. Penn—resident heartbreaker of the senior class. Reliably unreliable. Trouble with a capital “T.” And okay,smolderingly sexy.

Harper’s surprised by Penn’s attention—and so is Penn. The last thing he needs is a girlfriend. Or even a friend-with-benefits. The note is not supposed to lead to anything.

Oh, but it does. They hang out. They have fun. They talk. They make out. And after a while, it seems like they just click. But Penn and Harper have very different ideas about what relationships look like, in no small part because of their very different family backgrounds. Of course they could talk about these differences—if Penn knew how to talk about his feelings.

Harper and Penn understand their attraction is illogical, yet something keeps pulling them together. It’s like a crazy roller coaster—exhilarating,terrifying, and amazing all at once. And neither knows how to stop the ride…”

Can’t wait to dig in!

I’m going on a Mini Vacay tomorrow and super excited! I’ll share the books I’ll be bringing along tomorrow!

Happy Saturday guys!
