Hey y’all! It feels like I’ve been reading this one forever, because I have. It’s one of those books you really have to take your time with (or else you won’t be able to read through the tears) but I was determined to finish it yesterday, and so that’s what I did. Now, let’s get into it.Continue reading
Hey y’all! These graphic novels have been giving me a much needed break from the real world. I read an eARC of Smoove City through Netgalley. All opinions are my own.
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!

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.
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.

This is book two of my June Library Book Haul. Maybe I should just start calling them that from now on. My first trip to the library brought me Simon vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda and I decided to pick up another book by Becky Albertalli.
Make sure to check out last week’s review of Piecing Me Together by Renee Watson.Continue reading
