Ace of Spades by Faridah Àbíké-Íyímídé
How do you play the game when the cards are stacked against you? When Ace, an anonymous texter, begins exposing Niveus Private Academy students’ secrets, Devon & Chiamaka have to put a stop to it, before the texts destroy their future. A fast-paced, mystery novel with a page-turning plot twist makes for an amazing social commentary read that will have you questioning every character. (review brought to you by our lovely Kenny @coffeecupstudyblr) > this read has: lgbtq+ main characters of color, mystery, tension
If We Were Villains by M. L. Rio
As one of seven young actors studying Shakespeare at an elite arts college, Oliver and his friends play the same roles onstage and off: hero, villain, tyrant, temptress, ingenue, extra. But when the casting changes, and the secondary characters usurp the stars, the plays spill dangerously over into life, and one of them is found dead. The rest face their greatest acting challenge yet: convincing the police, and themselves, that they are blameless. > this read has: murder, mystery, devotion, intrigue
The Maidens by Alex Michaelides
At the elite St. Christopher’s College in Cambridge, the past and the present collide when a student is murdered. Alumna Mariana, a group therapist, returns to her university where she begins to investigate the enigmatic Greek Tragedy professor. As she becomes increasingly enmeshed in a web of intrigue, Mariana’s obsession begins to grow more and more… (review brought to you by our lovely Theo @spoonieacademia) > this read has: a secret society, mystery, high stakes
Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo
Galaxy “Alex” Stern is the most unlikely member of Yale’s freshman class. Having made some bad decisions, she's the sole survivor of a horrific, unsolved multiple homicide at just twenty years old. Somehow, she is offered a second chance: to attend one of the world’s most elite universities on a full ride. What’s the catch, and why her? Tasked with monitoring the activities of Yale’s secret societies, she dives into the world of money, power, and intrigue. But their occult activities turn out to be more sinister and more extraordinary than any paranoid imagination might conceive. > this read has: the macabre, mystery, supernatural forces (! check CWs before reading)
Extra recs below the cut :
More books with a dark academia premise: • Dead Poets Society by N.H. Kleinbaum • A Study in Charlotte by B. Cavallaro • Good Girls Lie by J.T. Ellison • The Furies by K. Lowe

resuming our recommendations for the Summer Reading Challenge prompts, here are some great works by authors of color!
for each prompt, we’re bringing 4 books into the spotlight, as well as giving you some additional recs because we simply couldn’t settle for just four great reads!
Tumblr media
Binti by Nnedi Okorafor
Binti is the first of the Himba people ever to be offered a place at Oomza University, the finest institution of higher learning in the galaxy. On her journey her transport ship runs into trouble with a different species and it’s up to her diplomacy to make sure she survives this trip. This fresh, curious, sci-fi novella is the first in the Binti trilogy, but it can be read as a stand-alone. (review by our lovely Hannah @hannistudies) > this read has: rich worldbuilding, tension, self-discovery
The Chosen and the Beautiful by Nghi Vo
A Great Gatsby retelling, set in a universe of casual magic, glittering excess, and elemental mysteries, told from Jordan Baker’s view and she is still othered. Except this time it's because she is adopted, Vietnamese, and queer. Written very dreamily and with this distinct flavor of rotting decadence of the 20s, Nghi Vo’s debut novel brings a thrill for the classic's fans and fantasy lovers alike. The nods to the original? Just exquisite. (review by our amozing (hehe) Mo @upside-down-uni) > this read has: atmospheric storytelling, thrill, lgbtq+ characters
Tie Your Shoes Kid by Meta Sarmiento
A collection of beautifully crafted, evocative poems that explore the journey from childhood to the doorstep of adulthood, weaving together the themes of family, self-discovery, heartache, and hope. Sarmiento's lyrical and narrative poems are both relatable and educative, leaving you with a feeling of comfort and peace. It's forgiveness, it's kindness, it's softly telling yourself it's time to tie your own shoes. > a line from the work: My heart deserves to smile after all it has survived.
With the Fire on High by Elizabeth Acevedo
Even though she dreams of working as a chef after she graduates, high school senior Emoni knows that it's not worth her time to pursue the impossible. Her plate's already full, what with her daughter to care for and her abuela to help support, leaving her with little means to let herself go in the world of culinary arts. But even with all the rules she has for her life—and all the rules everyone expects her to play by—once Emoni starts cooking, her only real choice is to let her talent break free. > this read has: inspiration, familial love, slow burn romance
Extra recs below the cut:
• Felix Ever After by K. Callender • Cemetery Boys by A. Thomas • The Poet X by E. Acevedo • The Black Flamingo by D. Atta • The Namesake by J. Lahiri • Ace of Spades by F. Àbíké-Íyímídé • We Hunt the Flame by H. Faizal • The Jasmine Throne by T. Suri • Hani and Ishu’s Guide to Fake Dating by A. Jaigirdar • A Thousand Splendid Suns by K. Hosseini

Today I continued my huge revision for my history of ancient philosophy exam, but in the afternoon I didn't do a lot because I couldn't focus. They postponed this exam from the 6th to the 9th of July and it messed up conpletly my organization with another exam I have on the 12th. I now managed to create a new plan, but this afternoon wasn't as productive as I would have liked. I have also revised once my huge list of important dates and names. Now I want to take some time to write some stuff of my own.
Summer studying challenge //2nd July - Do you have a specific goal for this summer?
I don't know if it counts as a goal, but I really need to take some time to rest. Other than that I want to organize stome uni stuff, and then my other goal is to travel a bit. I miss travelling so much.

"Did you get the flowers?" Mary asked as she sat on the couch flipping through the tv.
Frank patted his chest and then his jeans in search of his keys.
"What?"
Mary kept changing the channels without a beat,"Frank. You're supposed to buy a girl flowers on the date."
Frank furrowed his brow, "Uh...no. Have you seen my keys? Really?"
Mary rolled her eyes, "She's not gonna kiss you goodnight."
He searched on the kitchen table and rummaged through old mail when a knock at the door interrupted his concentration. As he bee-lined to the door, Mary turned off the tv and hopped off the couch to grab her latest book she'd chiseled her way through for the week.
Frank swung the door open abruptly and started you as you stood at their doorstep.
"Hey! You made it, great!" Frank exclaimed. "Sorry, my head's a mess."
Mary now situated herself at the kitchen table and shouted over her shoulder, "It's because he hasn't been on a real date in over six months."
Frank turned red," What? No...I mean yes, but jeez, Mary. Remember we talked about how to read a room?"
He turned back to you, "Come in, come in. I'm just trying to find my keys."
You chuckled and nodded to the doorknob which held his set of keys and he smacked his forehead.
As you walked into the house, you noticed little knickknacks here and there on shelves. And books. Mountains of books everywhere. Piling on top of each other.
"Hi Mary," you smiled as she kept her back to you, nose deep in her book.
"Mary…" Frank scolded as he put his hands on his hips.
"Hi, Ms. Y/N."
You smiled as you approached her, "May I sit?"
She nodded in agreement and you pulled out a chair.
"I brought you something…" you say as you rummage through your canvas bag for your book on crabs. "Well, actually I was hoping you could help me...see…"
Frank smiled as he saw the two of you bonding. He caught himself admiring you more than he'd like to admit as he needed to head off to his date soon. He appreciated your assistance with babysitting Mary as the two of you first met at the local library. His date, Justine, was a waitress at the bar he would visit from time to time. While there was a chemistry between them, it was really just through vanity. With you, he had come to know you at a deeper level: the way you’d squint or furrow your brow when reviewing your clipboard. Or how adorable you’d look chewing on the cap of your pen when trying to finalize an email at your desk. He saw that you loved the color yellow, considering how many skirts and cardigans you’d paired together. And that you were a romantic at heart - the classics were your fave to read and how’d you get lost in historical facts when he had first asked you what your hobbies were. Seeing how a beautiful person you were, inside and out, he now regretted asking Justine out with you on his mind.
Tumblr media
Mary's eyes scanned the books of quantum physics and mathematics. At first you thought perhaps she had another book instead, but as you watched her day in and day out, you were astounded at the tiny prodigy and her ability to ascertain such knowledge at her age. You'd correct the cataloging errors for the day and find her reading for enjoyment it seemed.
Then one day Frank arrived. Mary had always left on her own, but as if it were any old regular day, the handsome uncle came to retrieve his stellar niece. He had a warmness to him. His dark brown hair and beard complemented his face, one that was obvious in an overall attractiveness. And he was kind, he showed that by adopting his niece after her mother had passed away and truly nurturing her gifted talent. You learned he fixed boats for a living and lived not too far from the library. You smiled at the odd pair together, they somehow seemed to work however.
As you checked their books out, Mary tiptoed over the large walnut desk and glanced at you.
"You're pretty," she stated.
"Mary. What did we say?" Frank tsked, embarrassed, but didn't disagree with her observation.
"What? Frank, you told me that I need to state facts, rather than assumptions. And I am stating a fact that Ms. Y/LN is pretty. Do you think she's pretty, Frank?"
Frank coughed into his fist and blushed, you smirked, half wanting to know his answer, half laughing inside of how Mary was so blunt.
"Yes, Ms. Y/LN is very pretty," he replied and gazed at your eyes. He licked his lips and you had to turn away feeling flushed. You closed the last book and placed it in Mary's backpack.
"All set," you replied. "These are due on the 23rd."
Frank zipped up the backpack and slung it over his broad shoulder. "Thanks, we'll see you tomorrow."
"Oh?" You replied as Mary looked at you both attempting to assess the flirtation occuring before her eyes.
"Well, yeah, she loves it here, I mean. And we have a few other books to return."
"Yes, we'll see you tomorrow. Bye, Mary."
"Bye," Mary replied and skipped off.
Tumblr media
Frank showed up every day after that. You found it endearing, but not wanting to read into something that wasn't there, you focused your attention on Mary. That only seemed to peak his interest further. While he had a knack for attracting women, his heart was never in it for the long haul since the minute they found out about Mary, they'd either run away from the possible responsibility, or Mary would run them off herself. But with you it was different. You were genuine and kind to Mary. Knowing quite well of her mathematical abilities, you would challenge her in other areas: art, zoology, history. You found that while she could read more college level books than any person you met in the small town, she still was a child wanting to learn about all other aspects of life. You'd sit together at a table: you, reviewing inventory spreadsheets for the latest book fair and her, immersed in some book that would put you to sleep at night.
"Frank, you should ask Ms. Y/LN out," Mary stated one day as the three of you sat at a table together. Frank practically choked and you shook your head, secretly wanting to say yes.
"Aw, Mary. Well, I bet Ms. Y/LN has guys lined up at her door every night."
"No, she doesn't," Mary replied as she turned a page of her book. Frank laughed and placed his hand on Mary's shoulder, pretending to shake her.
"Well, actually Ms. Y/LN…" he said as your heart skipped a beat.
"Y/N," you interrupted. "You can call me Y/N. I feel we're on a first name basis now considering you're here everyday."
“Y/N,” he smiled. His hair was more combed today. You had noticed that he seemed to be disheveled when you first met him, however either Mary’s tactics were rubbing off on him, or it was your pure imagination.
“Yes?” you piped. You haven't been regularly dating lately. There just weren’t many prospects these days. Not ones that could keep up with conversation, let alone intellect. So instead, you found yourself immersed with your favorite fictional characters in the sea of books you’d grown to know and love.
His brow furrowed, he seemed nervous and he picked at the edge of a book as he attempted to gather his thoughts.
“Do you have a favorite book?” Mary interrupted as Frank turned to her, but seemingly glad she saved him from embarrassment.
“Do I have a favorite book? Hmmm...” you thought and a childish smile appeared on your face. “I have many favorite books, Mary...The Velveteen Rabbit, The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe…”
“Yeah, but what’s like your most favorite book?”
You extended your hand out to her and she willingly accepted. Frank perked up his interest as he watched the two of you scamper off into the fiction area. Curious, he stood up and decided to follow. The two of you giggled quietly as you made your way around the columns, your free hand lightly ghosting over the spines of the books. The subtle scent of paper and dust permeated Frank’s sense of smell. He was more of an outdoorsy person nowadays as he had left behind his scholarly days teaching in Boston. It’s where Mary learned most from, his appetite to keep learning, vernacular, and wit . You slowed down and perused a row until you found your favorite book.
“Aha!” you exclaim and hid the book behind your back as Mary jumped up and down with excitement. “Now, I’m not sure if this is something you’d be interested in, it’s more for ten year olds in my opinion. However, I know you’re a very mature young lady and I find that you’d quite enjoy the story if you give it a chance.”
Frank smiled, perplexed as to what book could possibly be your favorite. You pulled the book from behind and showed Mary.
“Little Women,” she stated. “By Louisa May Alcott.”
“Yes. It’s a beautiful story, really. About sisters and the trials they endure during the American Civil War. There’s friendship, love, and growth.”
Mary bunched her nose, you could tell she was on the fence about whether she’d enjoy a story about fictional sisters and yucky love stuff. You started to pull it away, however she grabbed it from your hands. You laughed and looked at Frank who leaned onto the columns and folded his arms.
“Seems someone is wanting to expand their horizons,” he chuckled.
“So it seems,” you smiled back as Mary skipped off to return to the table leaving the two of you behind.
“I’m more of a Lord of the Rings man myself.”
“Really?” you responded playfully. “The Hobbit included, right?”
“Of course,” he scoffed. “I think I actually just read that one to be honest, I just wanted to impress you. I spent my time reading Calvin and Hobbes more, probably how Mary learned my sarcasm.”
You laugh and touch his forearm as a reflex, but quickly realize and pull away. The spark that you felt when you connected was undeniable. You felt butterflies with him standing next to you and you hoped he hadn’t noticed your inability to remain calm.
“Y/N…” he started to say nervously. “Would it be alright if I called ya? Maybe we can get together sometime?”
“Oh, umm,” you replied, caught off guard. While you definitely had caught feelings for the handsome man, you never would have thought it’d be reciprocated. You stuttered, trying to gather your response.
Your hesitation threw him off, and he quickly replied, “I mean...like to sit for Mary or whatever. She really likes you.”
“Of course...yes,” you reply defeated in hopes that he would have asked you out. Instead of asking why he didn’t, you started to walk back to Mary. Frank scrunched his face in frustration in knowing he missed his shot with you and blurted out the most platonic question instead. He realized as well and quickly shoved his hands into his jeans pockets and followed your lead.
Tumblr media
Frank watched as you comfortably plopped yourself next to Mary on the couch, dreading that he had to meet up with Justine. He’d much rather relax on the couch with you and the rugrat, enjoying some silly kids movie together.
You peered over the couch, “Is it okay if she has popcorn?”
“What? Yes,” Mary said flatly and jumped off the couch to the kitchen.
“Okay, miss. But not too much sugar. Bedtime is still at 9,” Frank replied as you shrugged your shoulders.
“It’s the weekend, Frank,” Mary called out from the kitchen.
“Yes, but-“
“Will you be late?” you asked.
He looked at you in surprise, “Um, no. Probably before ten?”
“Okay, have fun.”
“It’s Y/N’s birthday,” Mary replied, carrying two coke bottles and a bag of jelly beans.
You shook your head in regret of ever telling the child when your birthday was. She was so inquisitive that day, asking about all your favorites: food, animals, books, and now birthday.
“It’s your birthday?!” Frank asked.
“Yeah, no big deal.”
“How old are you?” Mary asked as she set the drinks on the coffee table and then remembered how Frank would scold her about leaving water rings. She grabbed the coasters and placed them under the bottles.
“Mary!” Frank detested and placed his hands on his hips.
“How old do you think I am?” You tease, waving off to Frank that it was okay.
“Older than Justine, that’s for sure. She said she was 24, but looks 34. But she acts like she's 12. She hasn't even read anything on quantum physics, she thought wave mechanics was something Frank was working on with a boat,” she said coolly and popped a few jelly beans into her mouth. She nestled herself back into the couch cushions and wiggled her feet.
“Mary Elizabeth!” Frank’s voice boomed as he entered the living room.
Mary leaned over to whisper to you, “Frank says I'm not supposed to correct older people. Nobody likes a smart-ass.”
“And a busy body,” he huffed.
You nodded and laughed quietly, entertained at his expense.
“Well I am 32,” you smiled and looked at your watch, “As of one hour ago as a matter of fact.”
“That’s good. You’re much more mature than Justine and a better fit for him. Happy Birthday.”
“Thank you.”
“Mary…that’s it. You’re on your last warning,” Frank bellowed. “Don’t make me let Y/N go home and then you’re stuck with me tonight.”
“What? No! Okay. I’m sorry,” she lamented and folded her arms.
Frank’s demeanor changed as he turned to you, “I hadn’t known it was your birthday. Don’t feel pressured to sit for her tonight if you have other plans.” Secretly he wanted to cancel on Justine and spend the night celebrating you instead.
“Oh it’s okay! It kind of appeared out of nowhere. I usually go back home and celebrate with friends and family, but my schedule didn’t permit it this year. Next year, perhaps.”
“What’s your favorite dessert?” Mary asked as she chewed on another handful of jelly beans.
“Red velvet cheesecake,” you smiled. “I have a sweet tooth.”
Tumblr media
Frank couldn’t concentrate on his date with Justine. His mind was elsewhere. On you. Justine grazed her hand as they sat next to each other at the bar. He seemed unfazed by her gesture and looked at his watch, 9:14pm. Would it be too obvious if he cut the date short that he was into you? He coughed and took a swig of his beer.
“Do you wanna come back to my place?” She cooed and bit her lip in anticipation.
“What? Oh actually I was gonna head out. The sitter needed me home by 9:30,” he lied.
“Oh, sitter?”
“Yeah, Mary. Remember? My niece?”
“That’s right. How old is she again?”
“Seven,” He said, annoyed. He recalled they had met once before. The bartender approached them and handed Frank the receipt.
“Hey, do you have any desserts on the menu?”
Justine’s ears perked in curiosity of where he was going with asking about dessert.
The bartender grunted slightly and threw a mangled tri-fold menu and Frank grabbed it quickly.
“Buddy, ring me up for the red velvet cupcake.”

On a Parisienne’s Bookshelf
THERE ARE MANY BOOKS ON A PARISIENNE’S BOOKSHELF: 
The books you so often claim you’ve read that you actually believe you have.
The books you read in school from which you remember only the main character’s name.
The art books your parents give you each Christmas so you can get some “culture”.
The art books that you bought yourself and which you really love.
The books that you’ve been promising yourself you’ll read next summer … for the past ten years.
The books you bought only because you liked the title.
The books that you think makes you cool.
The books you read over and over again, and that evolve along with your life.
The books that remind you of someone you loved.
The books you keep for your children, just in case you ever have any.
The books whose first ten pages you’ve read so many times you know them by heart.
The books you own simply because you must and, taken together, form intangible proof that you are well read.
AND THEN THERE ARE THE BOOKS YOU HAVE READ, LOVED, AND WHICH ARE A PART OF YOUR IDENTITY:
The Stranger, Albert Camus
The Elementary Particles, Michel Houellebecq
Belle du Seigneur, Albert Cohen 
Bonjour Tristesse, Françoise Sagan
Madame Bovary, Gustave Flaubert
L'Écume des jours, Boris Vian
Lolita, Vladimir Nabokov
Les Fleurs du Mal, Charles Baudelaire
Journey to the End of the Night, Louis-Ferdinand Céline
À la recherche du temps perdu, Marcel Proust

THE CHALLENGE LIVES!
After the sucker punch of 2017, we are back, angrier than ever and with a brand new reading challenge.
For those of you who don’t know us yet, yes, we are a reading challenge! But not any reading challenge, we cater to the queer feminists of the world, we want you to learn and rule. So, pick a book, tag your choice with "dragoonthechallenge" and join us every month!
HERE ARE THIS YEAR’S THEMES:
January | GET POSITIVE It's time to challenge an idea, concept or long held belief. Be that your body image, mental illness or even death. Get on your feet and make it happen. February | CBs By Women Need we say more? February is a quick month for fast, but still complex, reads. Let’s give the women changing the landscape of the comic industry some love. March | Defiant Women For much of history anonymous was a woman. No more, let’s learn about some badass fucking women who changed the fucking world. April | POC as The Lead Choose any genre, any setting, but we better not see a white person as the lead, for fuck’s sake. May | By a Woman As long as you choose a book written by woman, it’s fair game. June | Here & Queer It’s LGBTQ+ History Month, we are queer and still here. Let’s learn about queer history or read some queer stories. Your choice. July | By a Woman of Color As long as you choose a book written by a woman of color, it’s fair game. August | YA Girls Everyone enjoys some young adult books every now and then, right? Choose one about a girl! September | The Future is Accessible Let’s give the people with disabilities within our communities the spotlight, read something written by them or about them. Learn about different ways of living and enrich your own life. October | Queer & Spooky That’s right, let’s read about some spooky gay shit. Queer paranormal romance is all the rage. November | She’s No Man It’s a men’s world, let’s read about some women fucking shit up where they don’t expect a woman to be. Any genre is cool with us. December | They’re lesbians, Harold QUEER WOMEN QUEER WOMEN QUEER WOMEN
Just like in previous years, we will have a masterpost with book recs and lists to guide you through the month’s theme. You can check for it on the 10th of every month on the dot. But if you already have your own idea, that’s absolutely fine and even encouraged.
The challenge is open for anyone who feels like joining at any point of the year. We don’t have any rules or demands, but if you feel like sharing what you’re going to be reading, tag us! That’s what we live for, my dudes. Here’s to a year of reading! :D
