Each week readers share what they are reading for the week. I joined because there is no way I can review every book I read. Up this week:
Taneesha Never Disparaging by M. LaVora Perry. Really enjoyed this. Review this week.
Tortilla Sun by Jennifer Cervantes. As I mentioned last week this has magic and the magic is real. The book deals with death and loss but treated in a way a young reader can process it and the magic, it pulls everything together.
M+O 4EVR by Tonya Cherie Hegmain. I have really wanted to read this. This is a belated birthday present from Ari. She has really been after me to keep a book instead of giving them away. This one I'm keeping. I've been stalled on my GLTB Challenge reads.
This week in the mail:
Foxy: My Life in Three Acts by Pam Grier with Andrea Cagan. I love memoirs and my formative years were the 70s so I'm really hoping this lives up to the fantasy. Ms. Grier wasn't just beautiful she embodied power, independence, a woman who did what she pleased.
The Big Book of Soul by Stephanie R. Bird. Stephanie is a new author for me. We recently connected and I'm really excited about reading her book. I want to read more nonfiction and her topic is so where I am right now. Coming behind my read of Carleen Brice's book, Children of The Waters where the main character is immersed in her ancestry, herbs and holistic living this is right on time.
Sweet Hereafter by Angela Johnson. This is the final book in the Heaven triology. I've read and loved both First Part Last and Heaven. If you don't know these books, do check them out.
Rich: A Dyamonde Daniel book by Nikki Grimes, illustrated by R. Gregory Christie. Unexpected surprise. Two copies so we'll put one in our Prize Bucket and the other I'll likely donate.
Awakening Iran by Shrin Ebadi. I've stalled on this one. It is good but there are some really good YA and MG distracting me at the moment.
Last Night I Sang To The Monster by Benjamin Alire Saenz. See review at La Bloga. Hope to finish this soon.
