The Field Guide to the North American Teenager (Book Review)

Comments 7 Standard

Hey y’all! So you know how I’ve been screaming about Charming as a Verb ever since I heard about it? Well, I decided to check out Ben Philippe’s first book to mull me over until I got my hands on that new release.

I listened to the audiobook of The Field Guide to the North American Teenager via the CloudLibrary app well over a month ago but I’ve been trying to figure out how to put my many feelings into words. This is going to be that attempt.

9 Diverse TV Shows to Add to Your Family Friendly Watchlist

Comments 6 Standard

Hey y’all! It’s no secret that I love children’s shows. As soon as I see that “family friendly” tag, my interest is piqued. I talk about cartoons quite often and I watch them even more. Most of these TV shows are ones I love, with a few my younger cousins are trying to get me into (spoiler alert, they’ve got me).

Who doesn’t love a good binge watching session every now and then? Having some family to enjoy it with can make it even better.

Author Interview: Sandra L. Richards

Comments 4 Standard

Hey y’all! Welcome to my tour stop for the Rice and Rocks book tour hosted by Hear Our Voices. As I mentioned in my M is for Melanin post, children’s books hold such a special place in my heart and I love seeing Black authors getting the recognition they deserve. It’s beautiful seeing how kids today have access to so many new stories where the main character actually looks like them.

After I received my physical copy from Hear Our Voices, I decided to give it to my youngest cousin (she just turned eight). She kept asking me questions like “Why is the bird so big? What’s rice and rocks? Is the boy going to eat rocks?” as soon as she saw the cover. I told her to read it and find out and so that’s what she did while I sat on the couch with her. She ended up enjoying the story and I’m pretty sure the bird was her favorite part.

Now let’s get into this exclusive interview!

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.
