Hey y’all! As I mentioned in my review of the last comic collection, I absolutely love The Loud House. When I saw an ARC of the next collection on Netgalley, I knew I had to request it. It was basically shouting my name.
I didn’t mention there (but I’ve said it many times before) that I also LOVE The Casagrandes. It makes me so so happy to see that kind of family represented for kids and I just love it. Okay, now let’s get into this review!
Hey y’all! So this will be a short one. I got an eARC of The Many Faces of Lincoln Loud from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. I’m a pretty big fan of The Loud House. I still need to catch up on the latest season but I’m pretty sure my younger cousins have been keeping up. They’re the ones that got me into it in the first place. I think the creators are doing a great job of making a show that’s fun for kids but also teaches valuable lessons on empathy, family, and friendship.
Hey y’all, it’s good to see you! Check, Please! was my first read of The Reading Rush 2020. I ended up reading the ebook (via the CloudLibrary app) in my backyard. I only read children’s books and graphic novels as ebooks because full novels are more difficult for me to concentrate with. I’m thinking about getting an e-reader to help with that so if you have any suggestions, please let me know.
This story came highly recommended… by basically everyone. I kept seeing it on blogs, Booktube, and Ally even said I should read it based on one of my favorite emojis.
So I read it, and here’s what I have to say:
Black is the story that your oppressors don’t want you to hear. It’s the story of what life would be like if only Black people had superpowers.
Kareem is thrust into this super powered world after being shot multiple times and running out of the ambulance. He is then found by people who train him to harness his abilities. All the while, the U.S. government is determined to find Kareem and take him down.
I have five books I’ll be trying to get through this month. There are no guarantees, now that I’m a college student, studying between blogging breaks.
