I don’t understand why more people aren’t talking about this book. Watch Us Rise was published on February 12th, 2019 and thankfully, my library had a copy.
This is the final book of my June Library Book Haul. I actually read all four this time. It’s been a pretty good reading month and I’m excited for the Wrap-up next week. I’ll also have to bring these beauties back to the library, but at least they’ll get to be loved by someone else.
I’ll be using the same reviewing style I did for Love, Hate, & Other Filters so please let me know if you like it, or if you’d rather I go back to my old ways.
The fact that I haven’t read this book by now is honestly kind of strange. But, it seems quite fitting that I’m reading it during Pride Month. The last book I read with an LGBTQ+ main character was The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue and I loved it. Simon Vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda was the second book I picked up during last month’s trip to the library.
As you may know, Earth Day was yesterday. In honor of Earth Day, today’s prompt is to name two books that encourage a change. These don’t have to be environmental, just a positive change of some sort.
If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you know that I love books with a message. This whole blog’s focus is promoting diversity and inclusion in all forms of media. I know it would’ve been easy to mention The Hate U Give for the 30th time, but I really want to start expanding my palate as far as activism goes.
I’m going to start off with a recent one. This book has resonated strongly with me, I even got to meet the author, herself.
