So I don’t know why books is trending but my bookworm self is crawling out the dirt to enjoy it!
Also I’ve been reading during lock down and would recommend you do too! I’ve read
- Harry Potter and The Order of the Phoenix
- All the Light We Cannot See
And would recommend all of them!

My voice isn’t the one anybody needs to hear right now so: if you’re a person of color running a book or academic blog that could use some greater visibility send me your favorite posts and I’ll share them here

Just one more page book challenge
My Granddad bought me a copy of LOTR years ago and I never got around to reading it. Decided to today and there’s a picture of an angel in it??
Don’t know her purpose or why she’s hanging out in Tolkien’s work, but she seems pretty chill so I’m naming her Greta.
I ordered a bunch of new books written by black authors and two have arrived yesterday, Queenie and Homegoing. The Hate U Give was one of my favorite books of 2017. Everybody should read it or watch the movie. Get a Life, Chloe Brown was a favorite last year and cannot wait for the next one releasing soon. 💯🥳

“There are books of which the backs and covers are by far the best part”
I’ve been having some trouble with staying focused on my work recently, and I’ve found out that lo-fi music really helps me, surprisingly, as in the past I’ve always needed absolute silence.

“Not a flat. Not an apartment in back. Not a man’s house. Not a daddy’s house. A house all my own. With my porch and my pillow, my pretty purple petunias. My books and my stories.”
