I am a fool for reading this. I wanted to salsify my curiosity for Midnight Sun, having read the leaked version long ago, but tbh it was not worth it.
Any enthusiasm I had for this book turned into boredom, and well, if you want to find out what went wrong, continue reading.
Also, the Quileute Tribe is currently raising funds to get their tribe out of the Tsunami zone. If you buy Midnight Sun considering helping the tribe preserve their traditions and culture by donating here.
I’m back again with another Monday review. Today I’ll be reviewing Adrienne’s Awakening, a debut novel by Mindy Schoeneman. Adrienne’s Awakening is a Science Fiction new adult novel with a touch of mystery.
I received a copy of Adrienne’s Awakening from Shayla Raquel and Mindy Schoeneman and this is my honest review.
The Sun is Also a Star is an #ownvoices novel the author, Nicola Yoon, grew up in Jamaican and Brooklyn, and falls under the YA romance genre. This book is not a quick read, but if you’re up for it, check it out.
This book is written in a series of vignettes by renowned slam poet Elizabeth Acevedo and follows the life of a young Dominican American girl from Harlem. The Poet X is prefect for lovers of poetry and slam poets.
Many of us have probably read or heard about Brock Turner, a Stanford student who raped an unconscious woman behind a dumpster. During the trial, we only knew this woman as Emily Doe, until now. Chanel Miller pens and narrates her powerful Memoir, Know My Name, to finally tell her story and humanize herself after Brock and his lawyers defamed her.
I considered myself to be a very inclusive reader, someone who reads books by BIPOC authors, but one glance at my Goodreads tells me that I can do better. So I decided to begin June reading Odd One Out by Nic Stone. Not only is Odd One Out an Own Voices novel, literature written by someone who identifies as a part of the same marginalized book as their character(s), but it’s also YA, which makes it accessible to many. Is it just me, or does anyone else have trouble comprehending some of the older literature with its superfluous vocabulary? I studied English in college, and during my first years, reading Shakespeare was a struggle!
