Watch Us Rise by Renée Watson + Ellen Hagan

I really enjoyed this novel. Having feminist literature accessible to and in the perspective of young people is SO important and crucial to us seeing a true change in society.

Black Leopard, Red Wolf (The Dark Star Trilogy #1) by Marlon James

This may be the first novel I’ve ever read that I needed to take breaks from and write notes for. It’s such an enigma, but strategically so.

The Everlasting Rose by Dhonielle Clayton

Dhonielle Clayton continues to weave a masterful web ensnaring my attention and my appreciation. The world of Orléans she has built has quickly become one that I long to return to.

Black Girls Must Die Exhausted by Jayne Allen

This book itself is my love letter – to you, to black women, to women and to all those who understand the beauty that comes through struggle and the benefit of doing their own work to heal, to understand, to grow, and most importantly, to love more fully.

March #BookHaul

So, I wasn’t be able to go to my local Friends of the Library sale last month (and I am SUPER bummed), but I did pick up these new reads in the last month from the Barnes & Noble #BookHaul and from Book of the Month Club and I’m very excited to get through my books on deck to get to these! There are also a few ARCs I’ll be reading and reviewing this month too.
