Leave a comment Standard

Hey y’all! I’m trying to catch up on reviews these next few weeks and this is another one that I’ve been struggling to put into words. I have so many feelings and not enough words to describe them. So, I will try describing it with the words that I have at my disposal.

The Field Guide to the North American Teenager (Book Review)

Comments 7 Standard

Hey y’all! So you know how I’ve been screaming about Charming as a Verb ever since I heard about it? Well, I decided to check out Ben Philippe’s first book to mull me over until I got my hands on that new release.

I listened to the audiobook of The Field Guide to the North American Teenager via the CloudLibrary app well over a month ago but I’ve been trying to figure out how to put my many feelings into words. This is going to be that attempt.

9 Diverse TV Shows to Add to Your Family Friendly Watchlist

Comments 6 Standard

Hey y’all! It’s no secret that I love children’s shows. As soon as I see that “family friendly” tag, my interest is piqued. I talk about cartoons quite often and I watch them even more.

Author Interview: Lamar Giles

Comments 5 Standard

Hey y’all! So I’m coming at you with something super special this week. Lamar Giles’ marketing team reached out to me to check out his upcoming Middle Grade Novel: The Last Mirror on the Left. It is a sequel to The Last Last Day of Summer and it features Black kids saving the world with some cool sci-fi elements.

I am so honored to have this opportunity to interview Lamar Giles, especially as I begin delving more into Middle Grade. I recently read his latest YA novel Not So Pure and Simple and I absolutely loved it. I ended up buying a copy of The Last Last Day of Summer for my cousin (she’s ten) and I’ll be giving her my ARC of The Last Mirror on the Left to go along with it. I’m so excited to see what she thinks about it.

Okay, enough of me gushing. Here’s the interview:
