Have you discovered a book through the book community?

Yes! So many. I remember one of the first books I ever bought because of booktube was Pivot Point by Kasie West. That was years ago.

More recently, I’ve read You Should See Me in a Crown and Get a Life, Chloe Brown solely due to the hype. I ended up loving both so that really worked out in my favor.

What book brings a lot of nostalgia?

I guess any of my childhood favorites bring back that sense of nostalgia. I reread first book in The Magic Tree House series recently and it brought out all of the nostalgia.

Is there a book you want to see being adapted?

Oh, so many. I did a post on books I’d want to see adapted to film last year but I think I should do another one. The ones that come to mind right now are You Should See Me in a Crown, Opposite of Always, With the Fire on High, and a million others.

What book disappointed you this year?

Frankly in Love and Color Me In were my biggest disappointments for the year, thus far. I really wanted to love both but they just didn’t hit the mark for me.

Has reading made you want to write and be an author?

Yes! I’m actually working on a manuscript write now for a middlegrade novel. I’ve wanted to be a writer ever since I was little and reading books by Black authors has just reinforced that in me.

What book would have been better without a sequel?

I mainly read standalones so I can’t think of any right now. It’s been quite a while since I last read a sequel to anything.

What’s a book you’ve been meaning to read for a long time, but haven’t yet?

I feel like I always answer the same thing when this one comes up so let’s go with a classic: The Great Gatsby. It sounds like an interesting book, I’ve just never had to read it for classes or anything and I haven’t ever picked it up in my free time.

  3. Thank you for the nomination, Rae! Also SAME about the Magic Treehouse Books! I used to read them all the time as a kid, and I reread them a couple of years ago and was happy they were still great!

  4. The Great Gatsby is one of my fav classics. I love the writing in it. Funny though, because I hated it in high school, but when I read it on my own, it was great.
