If Long Way Down was a Movie: Dream Cast

Comments 6 Standard

Hey y’all! Remember when I did that dream cast for Opposite of Always? Well, I guess the director bug has bit me again. Today’s dream cast is part of the tour being hosted by Hear Our Voices for the October 13th release of Long Way Down: The Graphic Novel.

If you’ve been here for basically any amount of time, you already know how much I absolutely love Jason Reynolds and his writing. I actually read Long Way Down for the first time over a year ago, so as soon as I heard it was being adapted into a graphic novel I was super excited.

Now let’s get into this dream cast!

Books of the Month ~ September

Comments 7 Standard

Hey y’all! When I said September was snatching my check, just know I was super serious. If you’re new here, at the beginning of the year I challenged myself to buy at least one book every month in support of authors and independent bookstores. Some months I end up buying more than one book and this was one of those months.

My local bookstore has closed down, which did make me sad but now I’m supporting a Black-owned independent bookstore and that makes me happy. If you’d like to find a Black-owned bookstore near you, click here for the directory. I got these books from Cultured Books through their online shop.

Since I have a whopping 9 books on the list this month (and if you know me, you know that’s a LOT) I’ll just include links to the synopsis rather than the full synopsis.

This month’s picks are:

Hey y’all! This review has been in my drafts for the longest because I totally forgot I hadn’t posted it yet. I’ve been thirsting after Zaf since I read it and I really can’t wait for Eve Brown’s story.
