Wrapping up February with reviews + hopes for Spring!

February was a great month of reading! I read and listened to quite a few novels this month, including a few ARCs. I took a dip into Fantasy, Romance, Nonfiction, and Urban Fiction. Take a look at these mini reviews and let me know what you think!

A Blade so Black by L.L. McKinney

I really enjoyed this read! It’s the Alice in Wonderland + Buffy crossover I never knew I needed. I have always loved the dark playfulness of Alice in Wonderland, so to read urban twist to the classic family centered around a black teenage heroine in modern times? Count. Me. In! The Story: The book begins…

Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi

Wow, how do I even begin this review? I have SO MANY FEELINGS about this book. It’s set in African folklore, all about that black girl magic, AND it’s a response piece to police brutality against black bodies? UGH, slay me, Tomi. And don’t even get me started on the fact that Tomi is my age (26) and out here slaying her FIRST NOVEL and already has a movie deal?! UGH, slay me AGAIN, Tomi!!!!!!!!

Book Recommendations + A Brief History of BHM

As your tour guide to all things bookish, I will also be respecting culture and ethnicity in this space. So, in each of these months, I will work to bring book recommendations from Authors of Color so that we can work together to be more mindful, accepting, and appreciative of the diversity in our lives.
