Beware the Kitten Holy ~ Lumberjanes Vol. 1 (Book Review)

Comment 1 Standard

So, I had no idea that Amazon Prime had books that you could get for free with it (thank you Goodreads).

Lumberjanes is one of those graphic novel series that just about everyone has talked about at one point or another and with good reason. Now I understand just why it’s so popular!

Top 5 Tuesday – TOP 5 BOOKS I NEED TO READ IN 2020!

Comments 6 Standard

I’m happy to be back for Top 5 Tuesday. That October slump really got me last year, but this year I plan on persevering.

Top 5 Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by the lovely Shannah of Bionic Book Worm. It’s all good vibes and good times and if you’re on the fence about joining, just try it out!

Also, if you want to use this cool graphic I made, please let me know. I’ve been having a lot of fun making these.

I’m sure I could’ve added well over a 100 books to this list, but seeing as I don’t have the time to get through that many, here’s five. (Click the titles to be sent to the Goodreads pages)

Down the TBR Hole #11

Comments 11 Standard

Hey everyone, it’s good to be back! I remember being so excited to post Down the TBR Hole #10 and then literally not doing another one for weeks, but that ends now. I’m back and I’m better y’all.

So the way I go through my TBR is by fixing my Goodreads Want to Read section in descending order. I have it fitted to twenty books per page. Now, I’m finally up to page two! That means I’ve removed over twenty books from my TBR. Is it just me or do y’all smell progress?

The Rules

  • 1. Go to your Goodreads to-read shelf.
  •  2. Order on ascending date added.
  •  3. Take the first 5 (or 10 if you’re feeling adventurous) books.
  •  4. Read the synopsis of the books.
  •  5. Time to Decide: keep it or should it go

Let me Hear a Rhyme (Book Review)

Comment 1 Standard

I’m really excited to get back into the swing of reviewing books. It’s been a while since my last book review. Here it is, my first read and review of the decade.

Goodreads Synopsis

In this standalone novel, Tiffany D. Jackson tells the story of three Brooklyn teens who plot to turn their murdered friend into a major rap star by pretending he is still alive.

Biggie Smalls was right. Things done changed. But that doesn’t mean that Quadir and Jarrell are okay letting their best friend Steph’s tracks lie forgotten in his bedroom after he’s killed—not when his beats could turn any Bed-Stuy corner into a celebration, not after years of having each other’s backs.

Enlisting the help of Steph’s younger sister, Jasmine, Quadir and Jarrell come up with a plan to promote Steph’s music under a new rap name: The Architect. Soon, everyone in Brooklyn is dancing to Steph’s voice. But then his mixtape catches the attention of a hotheaded music rep and—with just hours on the clock—the trio must race to prove Steph’s talent from beyond the grave.

Now, as the pressure—and danger—of keeping their secret grows, Quadir, Jarrell, and Jasmine are forced to confront the truth about what happened to Steph. Only each has something to hide. And with everything riding on Steph’s fame, together they need to decide what they stand for before they lose everything they’ve worked so hard to hold on to—including each other.

WWW Wednesday

Comments 4 Standard

WWW Wednesday is a meme that was formerly hosted by MizB at A Daily Rhythm and revived by Sam of Taking on a World of Words.

Hey y’all, I finally decided to try one of these. WWW Wednesdays are so popular in the book blogging world, but I’ve never done them before. That is, until today.

I just get worried because I’m no stranger to DNFing books, so the “what you’ll be reading next” part always made me a little anxious. I really want to experiment more with my blog and get involved with the community, so I’ll try it out this week and see where I go from there.

Without further ado, here are my answers to the three Ws.
