✨Hello bookstagrammers!✨
Today has been a very busy day! And a very hot day 😅
First, my twin and I went shopping for plates, cutlery, utensils, bedding, towels, pots and pans, pillows and everything we need for our new apartment. That was fun picking out all new stuff and the colours and style we want ☺️ of course we couldn’t go to huge furniture places as they’re not open yet but we found what we needed in two supermarkets.
Then we came home and our dad helped us build our coffee table, our chairs for our dining table, and our couch. Which will save us time next week and not have to build so much 😂 we still need to put together our bed frames and a couple of bookshelves along with a bench and the dining table. But not as much thankfully 😅
Now our furniture is in random rooms of the house until we move 😂😂
So it has been a very sweaty, hot and busy day.
THIS TIME NEXT WEEK WE WILL BE MOVED IN 🤩🤩

💜Happy Wednesday Everyone💜

So much is going on in the world. The issue of racism has been going on for a very long time. It is not something new!! And with the rise of technology we’re now witnessing what has been going on forever. This past week we have seen protests all over the world. We have seen Blackout Tuesday. And we have seen a lot of our fellow bookstagrammers use this time to share resources and be an ally to the black lives movement. And on top of that we’re all still fighting , and living through, a global pandemic. I’m writing this brief caption to say that I stand as an ally. My prof last semester, for my treaty education class, said something along the lines of: “to teach (I’m in school to get an education degree) is to be uncomfortable.” Basically, it is ok to be in situations where you don’t know everything. It is ok to admit you don’t know everything. You have to step outside your comfort zone, and what you know, and educate yourself. You have to listen to others speak and learn from others. And only you can put in the effort to learn and expand your mind through research and learning from others. I’m still learning! I haven’t posted a lot of info in the past week about the black lives movement. And I don’t want people to interpret that as me not caring. It is more like my social anxiety is worrying about me saying the wrong thing or sharing the wrong information. Writing this post is me stepping outside my comfort zone. I’m bypassing my anxiety to share how I feel!! .

I had my favourite take out meal yesterday for the first time since March and it was heaven 😍😍 I ate WAAAYYY too much but I’ve missed take outs and being able to go to a restaurant or food place and getting my favourite food 😂
Just me? 😂
But I regret eating it now because it was a lot, I went overboard because I wanted some of everything to make up for being deprived since lockdown started 😂
I can’t wait until I can actually go to a restaurant 😍😍

✨Hello bookstagrammers!✨
QOTD: Would you rather meet JK Rowling or Sarah J Maas?
AOTD: I would rather meet JK Rowling because she’s been my favourite author since I was young. And I have SO MANY QUESTIONS for her 😅
✨
Today is a relaxing day, I’m just going to be reading and sitting in bed 😍 just how I like it.
Hopefully I can finish Songbirds and Snakes this weekend. It’s taking a while for some reason 🤷🏻‍♀️ the chapters are pretty long and the beginning was very slow which is putting me off. Because after I finish a chapter it feels like I’ve been reading for an hour 😅 but the story is amazing right now! I can’t wait to see how it ends 😍

I wish books that are released long after a series concluded had some kind of quick recap to remind you what you read. (Yes, I know there's Google but that's extra effort 🤪) Also note to self, maybe I need to stop picking up the dystopian reads that are hitting too close to home... #YAlit #25BooksCampaign #CHECReads #DCPSReads

I’ve thought about this and I wanted to share why I am not muting my feed all week as we’ve all seen many accounts choose to do. It’s not because I think my voice is more important. It’s not because I’m afraid to mess with the algorithm. It’s not because I’m not listening.

My voice in this space is very small. On a good day, 75 people see my stories. But on a good day, over 2000 see my posts. My best chance to amplify the voices of others is here in this feed. In these posts.

And I’ll be completely honest. Part of my posting this week is selfish. This page, this book community, is currently crucial to my own mental health. Being here right now is no small part of what keeps me going every day after the passing of my father last month.

So, to do what I can to amplify voices not my own, I will be sharing books by black authors every day for the rest of this week, at least. I know my shelves do not have enough of these stories, so I will go out and find books if I have to and every book I share will be on my TBR at some point this summer. I will share information about these authors and the synopses of these books.

Listen to each other. See other other. Validate each other. Support each other.

Bethany C. Morrow's A Song Below Water is the story for today’s readers — a captivating modern fantasy about black mermaids, friendship, and self-discovery set against the challenges of today's racism and sexism.

In a society determined to keep her under lock and key, Tavia must hide her siren powers.

Meanwhile, Effie is fighting her own family struggles, pitted against literal demons from her past. Together, these best friends must navigate through the perils of high school’s junior year.

But everything changes in the aftermath of a siren murder trial that rocks the nation, and Tavia accidentally lets out her magical voice at the worst possible moment.

Soon, nothing in Portland, Oregon, seems safe. To save themselves from drowning, it’s only Tavia and Effie’s unbreakable sisterhood that proves to be the strongest magic of all.

Synopsis:
The first in an fantasy duology inspired by West African folklore in which a grieving crown princess and a desperate refugee find themselves on a collision course to murder each other despite their growing attraction.

For Malik, the Solstasia festival is a chance to escape his war-stricken home and start a new life with his sisters in the prosperous desert city of Ziran. But when a vengeful spirit abducts Malik’s younger sister, Nadia, as payment into the city, Malik strikes a fatal deal—kill Karina, Crown Princess of Ziran, for Nadia’s freedom.

But Karina has deadly aspirations of her own. Her mother, the Sultana, has been assassinated; her court threatens mutiny; and Solstasia looms like a knife over her neck. Grief-stricken, Karina decides to resurrect her mother through ancient magic . . . requiring the beating heart of a king. And she knows just how to obtain one: by offering her hand in marriage to the victor of the Solstasia competition.

When Malik rigs his way into the contest, they are set on a course to destroy each other. But as attraction flares between them and ancient evils stir, will they be able to see their tasks to the death?

Synopsis:
The first in an fantasy duology inspired by West African folklore in which a grieving crown princess and a desperate refugee find themselves on a collision course to murder each other despite their growing attraction.

For Malik, the Solstasia festival is a chance to escape his war-stricken home and start a new life with his sisters in the prosperous desert city of Ziran. But when a vengeful spirit abducts Malik’s younger sister, Nadia, as payment into the city, Malik strikes a fatal deal—kill Karina, Crown Princess of Ziran, for Nadia’s freedom.

But Karina has deadly aspirations of her own. Her mother, the Sultana, has been assassinated; her court threatens mutiny; and Solstasia looms like a knife over her neck. Grief-stricken, Karina decides to resurrect her mother through ancient magic . . . requiring the beating heart of a king. And she knows just how to obtain one: by offering her hand in marriage to the victor of the Solstasia competition.

When Malik rigs his way into the contest, they are set on a course to destroy each other. But as attraction flares between them and ancient evils stir, will they be able to see their tasks to the death?

The world is a nightmare right now. But yesterday, for me, you guys made it perfect.
✨
I think every writer dreams of what their first book launch will be, and most don't imagine a pandemic or massive riots during theirs. But that has been my reality, and these last few weeks have been a whirlwind as we've tried to get everything together in time to bring this book into the world. I kept my expectations low because truthfully, everyone's minds has been elsewhere. MY mind has been elsewhere.
But then the launch came. And you guys showed up for me and my book in a way I never could have imagine.
✨
It truly takes a village, and A SONG OF WRAITHS AND RUIN had one of the best ones. From my agent @quressa who signed a baby writer with minimal pub experience. To @kristin_rens (and Quince!) Who got this story better than I did. To @tawnychatmon for bring literal Black Girl Magic to this cover and @tt.themodel for being our Karina and @littlemissgang for designing it all. To @epicreads for being HILARIOUS and a championof YA. To @inkphemeral and A.J. Beckles for bringing Malik and Karina alive with their voices. To @brownbookworm, @nicstone, @whimsicalaquarian and every other established author who took the time to answer a frantic debut's question. To the entire Black Debut Squad, because their are too damn many of you to tag you all. 🤣 and to the friends and family who believed in me before I believed in myself.
Thank you. Thank you isn't even enough. Tomorrow and forevermore the work continues, but today I'm just grateful.

Es un libro enérgico, que te mantiene con la expectativa constante. Finalmente, muchos comportamientos comienzan a tener sentido. Si bien parece repetirse en cuanto a los Juegos, puedo asegurarles que la tensión se incrementa, y que el giro final es inesperado y te deja completamente boquiabierto.
¿Mejores personajes? A mi gusto, Cinna, Mags y Haymitch, aunque podemos decir que Finnick y Plutarch también se llevan una estrellita al mérito, principalmente en el final del libro. Todos y cada uno de ellos tienen vital importancia para la construcción de la historia, y además nos regalan muchos feels y giros inesperados que nos harán quererlos.
Punto extra para Snow, el malvado de nuestra historia: es un personaje completamente repugnante, digno de ser odiado. AMO cuando logran construir villanos convincentes y detestables, pero que además tienen una determinación que los justifica, que los convence de su accionar.
¿Se puede decir mucho más al respecto? No realmente, porque es una experiencia que tienen que vivir por sí mismos. Una lectura completamente recomendable para los amantes de la acción, con mucho cuestionamiento político y moral que nos llevará a repensar muchas situaciones de la actualidad.
Veremos qué nos depara en el final, Sinsajo.

Puntaje: 4 ⋆⋆⋆⋆ | 5

Our little reading group here on Instagram have been reading books by local or indie authors.
This month we are set to dive into @dionnaradawsonauthor first book of her series, “Feathers, Tails & Broomsticks”.
- this book is set in Australia (which I love as everything I read as a kid was always based in America).
This has the family feels of Sabrina the teenage witch, the sass of Buffy and the magic of charmed.
🕯
I can’t wait to read it as a group.
If you would like to join in,
We are beginning on the 8th of June.
Leave a message in the comments to be added.

“I’ve seen it happen over and over again: a black person gets killed just for being black, and all hell breaks loose. I’ve Tweeted RIP hashtags, reblogged pictures on Tumblr, and signed every petition out there. I always said that if I saw it happen to somebody, I would have the loudest voice, making sure the world knew what went down. Now I am that person, and I’m too afraid to speak.” -#TheHateYouGive

“By the force of our demands, our determination and our numbers, we shall splinter the segregated South into a thousand pieces  and put them back together in the image of God and democracy.”

“Active racism is telling a nurse supervisor that an African American nurse can’t touch your baby. It’s snickering at a black joke. But passive racism? It’s noticing there’s only one person of color in your office and not asking your boss why. It’s reading your kid’s fourth-grade curriculum and seeing that the only black history covered is slavery, and not questioning why.”

QOTD: what are some books by Black authors on your TBR? Are any of them LGBTIQAP+?
.
If you don’t know how obsessed I am with The Wicker King then you haven’t been paying enough attention 😹 This book is queer magic and I will recommend it with every breath I have.

I preordered Ancrum’s queer sophomore novel, The Weight of Stars but I still haven’t read it yet! 2018 Chiara would be screaming at me.

I’m hoping to read as many queer YA books by Black authors as I can this month because the white queer experience is not universal and we need to read narratives that expand our understanding of what it means to be queer.

💕
Have you read Pride by @ibizoboi ? This Pride & Prejudice retelling was included in an @owlcrate box, back in I think 2018, and has my favourite end pages I’ve ever seen in a book! .

✨Q: Which book boxes do you think include the most diverse books?
.
💕
Have you read Pride by @ibizoboi ? This Pride & Prejudice retelling was included in an @owlcrate box, back in I think 2018, and has my favourite end pages I’ve ever seen in a book! .

Next up. Another co-authored effort. @harlemportland (Renée Watson) is, I think, one of the best writers creating stories for young people today. Author of Piecing Me Together and, one of my absolute favorites, This Side of Home, she is a strong voice for underrepresented people and a wonderful storyteller. She has teamed up with Ellen Hagan to tell this story - a story about being heard. Another timely pick. Can’t wait! #diversebooks #yalit #youngadultbooks #bookstagram #ela #iteachela #bookclub

Now as always, it's essential to amplify the voices of Jews of color and foster dialogue about race and religion. Today we're highlighting Brandy Colbert's review of Natasha Díaz's YA novel Color Me In, which follows fifteen-year-old Nevaeh Levitz as she grapples with her religious and racial identity in the wake of her parents' separation.⁠
⁠
"Díaz’s accom­plished debut is filled with warmth and humor, but nev­er hides the ugly truths that can plague fam­i­lies—espe­cial­ly when they haven’t worked to under­stand each other’s dif­fer­ences."⁠

QOTD: What’s the weirdest thing you’ve used as a bookstagram prop?
•
June 3: Radclyffe Hall was an English writer from the early 20th century. Although she had written about lesbian love before, her fame comes from her book The Well of Loneliness, which was ordered to have all copies of it destroyed at the time of its publishing. This book was banned in Britain until after Hall’s death. •
Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe is (a mouthful of a title) a wonderful classic that I read last year which features a lesbian couple from the 40s. It’s told in many different formats, from oral storytelling to newspaper articles. The characters in this novel are so charming, it just makes you want to stop by the Whistle Stop Cafe for a cup of coffee and a plate of delicious food. I highly recommend this if you’re looking for an older book to read that features an LGBT couple written by an LGBT author. •

Let’s talk about covers - What’s one thing from the design process you want to know more about?
. . .
Today on #bookcrushin .com, Roseanne shared the collaborative process to develop the cover from A Song of Wraiths and Ruin! I love how involved she was in the process, something we don’t always get to see. Come check it out and get the details on the AMAZING launch month gift!
.
The first in a gripping fantasy duology inspired by West African folklore in which a grieving crown princess and a desperate refugee find themselves on a collision course to murder each other despite their growing attraction—from debut author Roseanne A. Brown. Perfect for fans of Tomi Adeyemi, Renée Ahdieh, and Sabaa Tahir.

For Malik, the Solstasia festival is a chance to escape his war-stricken home and start a new life with his sisters in the prosperous desert city of Ziran. But when a vengeful spirit abducts his younger sister, Nadia, as payment to enter the city, Malik strikes a fatal deal—kill Karina, Crown Princess of Ziran, for Nadia’s freedom.

But Karina has deadly aspirations of her own. Her mother, the Sultana, has been assassinated; her court threatens mutiny; and Solstasia looms like a knife over her neck. Grief-stricken, Karina decides to resurrect her mother through ancient magic . . . requiring the beating heart of a king. And she knows just how to obtain one: by offering her hand in marriage to the victor of the Solstasia competition.

When Malik rigs his way into the contest, they are set on a heart-pounding course to destroy each other. But as attraction flares between them and ancient evils stir, will they be able to see their tasks to the death?

The Volunteer State Book Award winners were announced today! We have both the high school and middle school division winners in our library and in audiobook format for streaming via Sora (link in bio). The Hate U Give is one of the best books I’ve read and is especially important, so definitely read that one if you haven’t already. And Refugee, as well, is brilliant and written by local author Alan Gratz. #Repost @tasltn with @make_repost

》I loved her. Despite everything. Despite the lies, the betrayal, the hurt. Despite he Archbishop and Morgane Le Blanc. Despite my own brothers. I don't know if she returned that love, and o didn't care. If she was destined to burn in Hell, I would burn with her."⠀
⠀
•¿Les gustan los enemies to lovers?  Particularmente es algo que disfruto muchísimo de leer. Los romances en la literatura (in my opinion) son los que tienen un buen enemies to lovers. Para los que no saben, son esas parejas que empiezan como enemigos y después se terminan amando. ⠀
⠀
"Serpent & Dove" Es de esos libros donde el romance esta cantado desde la primera página. La autora se centra en un mundo fantástico que bien podría ser el 1800 con vibes francesas. Lou, nuestra protagonista, es una joven bruja que escapo de su aquelarre y que ahora vive como ladrona. Por situaciones del destino,  termina siendo forzada a contraer matrimonio con Reid, un Chasseur (un cazador de brujas). ⠀
⠀
En este mundo, las brujas son malvadas y los Chasseurs son los encargados de proteger a los humanos de estos seres malvados. Ya de por si, es bastante interesante que enemigos de ambos bandos terminen siendo forzados a casarse así que el libro en sí gira entorno a estos dos jóvenes. ⠀
⠀
El romance va creciendo poco a poco y eso es lo que mas me gusto. Al principio mucho no los shippeaba pero de a poco fui cayendo en el fangirleo, y creo que el libro esta  para shippear a más no poder. ⠀
La historia es bastante simple, esperaba mas y tiene plots un poco predecibles pero EL ship lo es todo. Se me hizo muy interesante el mundo de la magia y las brujas, se me hizo muy original ya que nunca había leído algo parecido en otros libros. También es un plus como la autora juega con la religión y la magia, el odio hacia lo distinto y la hipocresía.  Se lee MUY rápido,  tiene 500 páginas pero se pasan rapidísimo y los capítulos están narrados por Lou y Reid así que llegamos a conocer a ambos por igual. ⠀
Es un libro muy hypeado en la comunidad y es mas que nada por el romance. Se los recomiendo  si buscan un buen libro de romance y no uno de fantasía con el mejor plot. ●¿Lo conocían? ¿Lo leyeron? ¿Les gusto?

Jacqueline Woodson is one of my favorite authors. Her children’s books are stunning and varied, giving voice to black histories or examining kindness or recognizing the challenges of introducing a sibling. Her young adult books are loved by students, teachers, and librarians alike. She’s won a ton of awards, the Coretta Scott King and Newberry to name two. To top it all off, she’s a kind, authentic, engaging human.
•
If you’re raising young adults at home, Behind You by @jacqueline_woodson is essential reading. The book deals with grief and tackles difficult, necessary issues: racism, homophobia, and socio-economics to name three. It would help facilitate much needed conversations.
•
If you’re an adult, especially a white adult, this is essential reading for you too. In the classroom, I’ve often seen how children are open-minded, willing to admit they are wrong and change, and the first to become true advocates/allies. It is us, the adults who care for them, who often fail to embody these attributes. Fiction allows one to see through a window into another’s life, to walk in the shoes of people different from us. The varied characters in Behind You will undoubtably give you an opportunity for this.
•
Behind You deals with an instance of police brutality, so it may be a trigger for some. Please research before deciding to read if this is you.
