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!!!!!!!!
2018 was the year of falling back in love with reading and the books that played a key role in morphing me into the young woman (ew, adulting) that I am today.
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.
I am so excited to share this space with you all and I hope you enjoy my ramblings and recaps of the various worlds I visit. I hope this blog can search as a place to share my love for literature and my love for exploring all the possibilities of the imagination.
