Amazon’s “100 Books To Read In A Lifetime”

Okay, I saw this tag back at Books & Munches blog and since I had nothing to post today I’m doing it

Also they tagged everyone who read it so technically I was tagged

Apparently there’s a list of the 100 books you have to read. Normally I say to read whatever you feel like it’s right for you. There isn’t right or wrong literature and you have to watch out for different kinds of readers.

That said, this is a fun tag and we are all here to see how little I’ve read of classic literature.

Top Ten Tuesday·Loved books I don’t remember

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday Topic:

Books I Really Liked but Can’t Remember Anything/Much About

This will be easy since I love most of the books I read and have a memory worse than Dory’s. I apologize in advance if your favorite book is here but know that I really liked it anyways.disloyaljampackedchinchilla-max-1mb Continue reading “Top Ten Tuesday·Loved books I don’t remember”

Juliet Milagros Palante is leaving the Bronx and headed to Portland, Oregon. She just came out to her family and isn’t sure if her mom will ever speak to her again. But Juliet has a plan, sort of, one that’s going to help her figure out this whole “Puerto Rican lesbian” thing. She’s interning with the author of her favorite book: Harlowe Brisbane, the ultimate authority on feminism, women’s bodies, and other gay-sounding stuff.

Will Juliet be able to figure out her life over the course of one magical summer? Is that even possible? Or is she running away from all the problems that seem too big to handle?

With more questions than answers, Juliet takes on Portland, Harlowe, and most importantly, herself. Continue reading “Juliet takes a breath by Gabby Rivera”

Diverse Reading Challenge 2018

I’ve been wanting to read more diverse book for a while now but I’m not good at organizing myself so I decided to join Sarah Viehmann and her Diverse Reading Challenge.

I’m always trying to read intersectional rep but it would be nice to have a specific goal to achieve each moth so that I don’t read only one kind of representation and ignore some.

With these kind of challenges is always important to read ownvoices and if you can’t do that, or want to read a specific book that’s not,, then read the reviews of readers that do fit that representation before picking it up, inform yourself if that book is hurting the community or speaking over it.

It does feel a little too USA-centric so I will try to pick some other authors but basically this is it.

Summary:

16109340

At first, Jude and her twin brother Noah, are inseparable. Noah draws constantly and is falling in love with the charismatic boy next door, while daredevil Jude wears red-red lipstick, cliff-dives, and does all the talking for both of them.

Years later, they are barely speaking. Something has happened to change the twins in different yet equally devastating ways . . . but then Jude meets an intriguing, irresistible boy and a mysterious new mentor.

The early years are Noah’s to tell; the later years are Jude’s. But they each have only half the story, and if they can only find their way back to one another, they’ll have a chance to remake their world.

This radiant, award-winning novel from the acclaimed author of The Sky Is Everywhere will leave you breathless and teary and laughing—often all at once.
