The Last Last Day of Summer (Book Review)

Comments 4 Standard

Hey y’all! I was actually sent a review copy of The Last Mirror on the Left but after hearing the synopsis for the first book in the series, I decided to buy a copy of The Last Last Day of Summer from Cultured Books (a Black woman owned bookstore). All thoughts are my own, as goes with every one of my reviews.

I’m sure you’ve all been on the edge of your seats waiting for my full thoughts on this series ever since my interview with Lamar Giles. Oh, wait, you weren’t? Well, stick around anyway to see if this might be the story you’re looking to add as an upcoming stocking stuffer.

Books of the Month ~ October

Comments 5 Standard

Hey y’all! As I was writing my October Wrap-Up, I realized I completely forgot to post about the books I bought in October. For those who are new here or the ones who have forgotten, at the start of the year I challenged myself to buy at least one book each month.

I usually get my books from Cultured Books, a Black woman-owned independent bookstore.

I ended up breaking the pattern of one month getting one book and the next month getting multiples. I got three books this month from Button Poetry because one of my favorite poets published his chapbook. I’m sure I’ve mentioned it before but for those who don’t know, I write poetry regularly and I’m often inspired by poets like these three.

The newest additions to my collection:

Allegedly (Book Review)

Comment 1 Standard

Hey y’all! This was my first ever buddy read and it did not disappoint. I’ve wanted to read Allegedly ever since I finished Monday’s Not Coming last year but I was also super scared of how it would leave me. Well, I had good reason for that.

This is going to be a no spoilers review and I won’t talk much about the plot because it’s better to know less going into this one.

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.
