Bi-monthly Wrap Up

This year I’m trying to read 100 books and I’m closer to that every day. I’ve read 22 books for now and according to goodreads I’m 7 books ahead of schedule, so yay for me.

I know most bloggers do these monthly but if I did then it’d turn out a rather short post, so here are all the books that I’ve read these past two months.

WWW Wednesday

WWW Wednesday! This meme was formerly hosted by MizB at A Daily Rhythm and revived on Taking on a World of Words.

It’s basically to check in, see what I’m reading at real-time.

This month, in honor of Black History Month, I’m trying to read as many books by black authors as I can. Although all the books I’m reading I was planning on reading before the challenge, the only difference is that now I have an excuse to read them all one after the other.

You can check out the Diversity challenge I’m doing in an effort of reading more diversely

As usual, click on the covers to go to the books’ GR page

The Three Ws are:

  • What are you currently reading?

  • What did you recently finish reading?

  • What do you think you’ll read next?

Dear Martin by Nic Stone

I have a future ahead of me that will likely include an Ivy League education, an eventual law degree, and a career in public policy. Sadly, during the wee hours of this morning, literally none of that mattered.

Title: Dear Martin

Author: Nic Stone

Publisher:  Crown Books for Young Readers

Format: Kindle

Rating: 5/5

Summary:

24974996

Raw, captivating, and undeniably real, Nic Stone joins industry giants Jason Reynolds and Walter Dean Myers as she boldly tackles American race relations in this stunning debut.
Justyce McAllister is top of his class and set for the Ivy League—but none of that matters to the police officer who just put him in handcuffs. And despite leaving his rough neighborhood behind, he can’t escape the scorn of his former peers or the ridicule of his new classmates. Justyce looks to the teachings of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. for answers. But do they hold up anymore? He starts a journal to Dr. King to find out.
Then comes the day Justyce goes driving with his best friend, Manny, windows rolled down, music turned up—way up, sparking the fury of a white off-duty cop beside them. Words fly. Shots are fired. Justyce and Manny are caught in the crosshairs. In the media fallout, it’s Justyce who is under attack. Continue reading “Dear Martin by Nic Stone”

Friday Reads· The Belles

Friday read was invented by The Candid cover and it’s a book meme that mixes two already existing:

  • Book Beginnings is a book meme hosted by Rose City Reader where participants share the first sentence (or so) of the book, along with initial thoughts about the sentence, impressions of the book, or anything else the opener inspires.
  • The Friday 56 is hosted by Freda’s Voice, and the rules are quite simple: Grab a book, any book, and turn to page 56 or 56% in your e-reader. Find any non-spoilery sentence(s) and post.

Today’s book is…..

The Belles

Zacriah Trovirn is concerned with two things in life: hunting and dodging Petrer, the boy who broke his heart.

Heartbreak becomes a distant concern when Zacriah is taken to the Elven capital of Thessolina, where he is forced into King Dalior’s new legion of shapeshifters. But Zacriah isn’t a shapeshifter. In truth, he doesn’t know what he is.

Zacriah joins forces with new friends and they soon find themselves embroiled in a clash between the three Elven continents. With war looming on the horizon, Zacriah must learn to use his latent power to fight and protect those he loves before they are destroyed. Continue reading “Cloaked in Shadow by Ben Alderson”
