I couldn’t make it to @libertycityreads  fest but @maikamoulite had an absolute blast and I literally gasped when I saw that they had surprised us with a gorgeous cake of the cover!! (Which is hilarious because we surprised @ninamoreno the same way a few weeks ago). Anyhow, I can’t wait to attend next year and thank you, thank you, thank you @suzeguillaume for putting on an amazing event that touches the lives of so many children ️

QOTD: How do you get out of a reading slump? Do you cycle thru several many books and hope one sticks? Is there a type of book or author that gets you out of it? Or do you lie in bed, stare at your ceiling and hope for divine intervention? I tend to read someone I haven't read before (like everyone pictured here) or a book that's in a voice and style that's different from what I've recently read. How you unslump your reading?

#PCBabe Jasmine Guillory is the New York Times bestselling author of “The Wedding Date”, “The Proposal”, and “The Wedding Party” (Release On July 16th). Her work has appeared in Cosmopolitan, Real Simple, Oprah Magazine.com, and Shondaland.com.
She lives in Oakland, California. ———————————————————————— “As a Black woman, there are some things you can only experience around other Black women. There are the times when we’re in a room together, dressed to the nines for no one but one another. Or the moments when I walk by another Black woman on the street and she tells me she loves my lipstick, and I tell her I love her shoes, and then we grin at each other. Or when we tell each other stories and laugh and laugh, so loudly that the whole restaurant hears us and smiles, too. And then there are the instances when we have good news—a new job, a book deal, a new relationship, a baby!—and cheer for each other. Nothing is more contagious than a Black woman's joy.

It has meant so much to me to see how happy my work makes other Black women out there—and to see their light, their friendships, their laughter, their successes, and their happily ever afters reflected in my books. And I can’t wait to write more fun, joyful books about Black women and girls. But most of all? I'm looking forward to reading all of the yet-to-be-written books that other Black women will write about us.” - @jasminepics ———————————————————————— #forcoloredgirlsbookclub #blackwomenread #language #forcoloredgirlsphotochallenge #kinkyhair #bookstagram #PCBabe #readmorewomen #prettycentral #blackgirls #diversespines #texture #weekendreads #rebelwomenlit #wellread #womenofcolor #wellreadblackgirl #read

 July Read - On the Come Up by Angie Thomas
______________
Sixteen-year-old Bri wants to be one of the greatest rappers of all time. Or at least win her first battle. As the daughter of an underground hip hop legend who died right before he hit big, Bri’s got massive shoes to fill.

But it’s hard to get your come up when you’re labeled a hoodlum at school, and your fridge at home is empty after your mom loses her job. So Bri pours her anger and frustration into her first song, which goes viral…for all the wrong reasons.

Bri soon finds herself at the center of a controversy, portrayed by the media as more menace than MC. But with an eviction notice staring her family down, Bri doesn’t just want to make it—she has to. Even if it means becoming the very thing the public has made her out to be.

@black_bookworm_ Eye to Eye is what u reread! Powerful words.

@blackintoxication Need for my library!

Stories tell us who we are, and often how we are as people, how we show up to others, isn’t enough. I always write for myself—often younger versions of myself, and more recently, the late twenties to early thirties version of me, which is now. Writing is healing for me. I write for millennial Jamaicans, women Jamaicans, queer Jamaicans. Sometimes stories are borne out of conversations with my women friends, and in this way, it feels that I’m writing stories for my closest friends who are black women, so really, I am writing for black women, too. - Alexia Arthurs, author of HOW TO LOVE A JAMAICAN, in an interview with For Colored Girls Book Club.

@hott_docc I read this last year and cried like a baby when the Black store owner died. I forgot his name's. The one who look out for her after her dad left her. It was just a really good book and beautifully written & I was very conflicted with who had really killed the guy. I didn't want it to be her but I kind of felt like it was her because they mistreated her so badly

@suzysbookclub_ @hott_docc I like how she overcame all the obstacle in life.. Yes, it was a beautiful book and I loved it.

 It’s time for our next DEAR HAITI, LOVE ALAINE teaser! 

Here we have AYITI CHERI, AYITI WTF. The title of Part II perfectly illustrates Alaine’s duality—100% Haitian, 100% American. 
This is one of my fave parts of the book because Alaine’s let’s say... sass is on full display. It’s also when she arrives in Haiti for the first time ever! 🇭🇹

Happy Tuesday Book Lovers! I’m just a girl, sitting with her red velvet cupcake...wanting to read a great book...So many more pictures forthcoming with my Publix roses
I finished the manuscript in January and it was published in May. It is loosely based on family experience and my life because an author should write about what they know.
My hope is people will relate to the theme and it will help focus on how you can change your life and how to deal with life changing events with courage and grace. I wonder if the protagonist believable? And are her Not-Sister, Angela, and her mother Darlene, tragic heroes or con artists?
I wanted to create a book I would read, and want to discuss I wonder did I pull it off...

Check out The baby hairs on this book! 
#PCBabe @SiyaOlivia just picked up this new read “Queenie“ by Candice Carty-Williams (@candicec_w)
————————————————————————
Book Review : Queenie is a dark and funny novel about a black 20-something woman living in London. 
Queenie is going through multiple issues, and doesn't cope with them very well, bouncing from one awful sexual encounter to another while she and her long-term (white) partner are 'on a break'. She tries to pitch black-centric stories to the magazine she works for, only to have them rejected and replaced with a suggestion to write more about fashion. She also has longstanding issues from childhood which involve her semi-estranged mother. Strong themes of mental illness, gentrification, female friendship, family and race in the modern age are interwoven throughout. ————————————————————————

@theinspajournal Dope! I gotta check that out. Right now I am reading" Their eyes were watching God."

One month until this physical manifestation of five years of work (but really, decades of lived experiences for so so so many South Asian American people) becomes officially available for educators, libraries, schools, and researchers to literally hold in their hands.

South Asian American Experiences in Schools: Brown Voices from the Classroom (#BrownVoices) shares stories from South Asian Americans who grew up here and for the most part did NOT live as #modelminority students.

The book tells of experiences with teachers making assumptions about them, holding them to unreasonable standards without offering supports, and otherwise just being unwilling or unable to connect with them.

I'll be dropping tidbits from the book here and on my Facebook from now until probably the end of time, but if you want, you can pre-order the book now -- it's available at Amazon, Target, and pretty much all major book retailers.
Pro-tip -- it's priced as an academic book, so if you can, push to get it purchased by your department head, librarian, staff development specialist, or whoever else can make it happen for you. (Funds exist for exactly this kind of thing -- ask and you can receive!!)
...and either way, please consider passing info about this work along to someone who might benefit from it -- especially please tag teachers, administrators, school counselors, and ed researchers... and anyone you think can help bring more awareness to the research (education journalists, or maybe even EVERY BROWN CELEBRITY you can think of!? )
⤵️
And as always, there are also some free resources at @ISAASEorg on supporting multicultural student populations and South Asian American kids in schools.
MORE INFORMATION, UPDATES, AND STUFF FROM THE BOOK COMING AT YOU VERY SOON.

Queenie is a page turning laugh out loud type of book that tackles BIG issues related to a woman’s  perception of their own worth and how our upbringing can influence our choice of a significant other The recommendations I read prior to reading Queenie said  that it was the  Black version of Bridget Jones Diary but I think the book manages to delve much deeper into topical content whilst maintaining the same level of wit and candor of Bridget Jones Diary I give it a 7/10 and would recommend it for anyone about to go on vacation or looking for a solid summer read#wellreadblackgirl #forcoloredgirlsbookclub #bookreview #bookclubofinstagram #queenie #candicecartywilliams #brixton #southlondon #summerreads2019 #supportyourlocalbookshop

@justjac87 I’m headed to the beach this week! May bring along!

DEALING IN DREAMS by Lilliam Rivera is a well-paced dystopian novel about what it means to make it and who or where home is. Las Mal Criadas (LMC) is an all-girl crew in Mega City, a society in which women have replaced men at the top of the social hierarchy. Their leader, Chief Rocka (born Nalah), runs a tight ship, which has earned them notoriety in the city and brings them closer to their collective dream of living in Mega Towers. Despite the dream being so close she can taste it, Nalah must first learn who to trust, what to value, and where to draw the line. 
I enjoyed this book for it's Latinx main character, topics like gender and gender identities, and the very compelling narrative. But there needs to be a sequel. While the characters are well-developed and their emotional journeys feel complete, there's more to that story. Sending up prayers that Lilliam Rivera is working on part deux as we speak.

Def check out this book if you haven't yet. If you have, what did you think of it?

@hott_docc I teach this book every year with my students

@suzysbookclub_ @hott_docc I love this book. I read it twice.

This is my first book that's not inspired by a real case. It's also probably the only book that probably won’t be as dark as my others; I call it my happy book. But I do think that it still stretches into real life in terms of thinking about people that we have lost and what they could have been. There's always those urban legends, people that aren't going to be talked about in history books. Really great basketball players who were unfortunately killed, or a straight A student who was gunned down. And I often think about that, especially growing up in Brooklyn. - Tiffany D. Jackson.

We interviewed Tiffany about her books & plot twists, Brooklyn & Biggie,  and nature vs. nature. Read more at the link in bio/story. (: @writeinbk)

@krystlerich @gkirkpatz I’ve been doing a lot of apologetics reading! My absolute fav on that topic is “Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus” by Nabeel Qureshi & a book I couldn’t put down (fiction, non-theology) is “Forty Acres” by Dwayne Alexander Smith

@gkirkpatz @krystlerich ahhh sounds fascinating!! Thanks for both recs! Adding to my list 😁

I had a difficult time engaging with the beginning of this book. I was constantly rolling my eyes, thinking “GIRLLL, wtf”. Despite the eye rolls and frustration, I couldn’t bring myself to not finish; partly because it’s hard for me to DNF books and partly because I was curious about what was truly influencing Queenie’s behaviors. I must admit that I am glad I finished. ⁣
⁣
Despite being the “most disrespected... unprotected... neglected woman in America [and beyond]”, Black women have been taught to remain strong and composed, to be twice as good to get half as much, to “just ignore it”; and, though implicit, to carry generation trauma on our backs. Regardless of the painful and broken childhoods, the importance of mental health has historically been overlooked within the Black community. This is what I think this book did well with illustrating. ⁣
⁣
Suppressed generational trauma is the reality of far too many. The level of responsibility imposed upon Black women, in particular, to jeopardize our mental health in order to keep moving forward in both our private and professional lives must stop being perpetuated. While I could not personally relate to Queenie, I did feel empathetic towards her experience of being a young Black woman navigating in predominately white, racist spaces while also trying to find herself despite unresolved childhood trauma. ⁣
⁣
It is okay to not be okay. It is okay to ask for help. It is okay to prioritize our mental health. It doesn’t make us weak, it makes us human. ⁣

First up, we have NOU TOUT FOU LA (WE'RE ALL MAD HERE). We chose this as the opening of DEAR HAITI, LOVE ALAINE because Alice's Adventures in Wonderland is Alaine's favorite childhood book. And if you think about it, there's some truth to the sentiment.

@raethereviewer I’m so excited for this release date 😁

[#partner @inkyardpress] DEAR HAITI, LOVE ALAINE by sisters Maika and Maritza Moulite follows Alaine, a quick-witted teen who gets sent to Haiti as punishment for a reckless history presentation. While there, she interns at her aunt's nonprofit and dives more deeply into the family curse that has followed the descendants of Henri Christope, one of Haiti's founding fathers, for generations. This story is told using news articles, diary entries, emails, text messages, letters, sent and unsent, and personal exchanges, real and imagined. It is a compelling tale of Haiti's history and its women, generational trauma manifest as a curse, and the far-reaching consequences of our actions. .
We are beyond happy for this book to come into the world! The distinct voice and snarky humor of this book pulled me out of my reading slump! DEAR HAITI, LOVE ALAINE isn't out from Inkyard Press until September 3, but you can pre-order now!

We definitely preach this message (with the added caveat, by black women), but we also know it's hard to always do. Between time constraints, how the book you chose fits your mood, and the constant worry of this major extinction event we're undergoing in the world and as oppressed people, it can be hard to make space to read more.

@courtneycrossjohnson Enjoyed that book!

I love writing stories that I've not seen before. When I read immigrant fiction stories, [the immigrants’] coming here is very altruistic. They're coming to give money to their family, and to make everything better to their family back home. But in PATSY, I wanted to explore a woman who actually comes to America for herself. She walks away from everything and chooses to be a new person, which happens all the time with men. When men go off and they start new families, people kind of expect that. But when a woman does it, I wanted to start a conversation like how do we perceive her to be. So, I am asking that question “What do we lose when we, as women, choose ourselves?” - Nicole Dennis-Benn in an interview with For Colored Girls Book Club.

I know I say this every month, but it's never not true. Last night's discussion of Patsy by Nicole Dennis-Benn (@ndennisbenn) was one for the books, so to speak. We talked about Patsy's selfishness, how her feelings were valid but her methods were unkind, whether we hold women to a different parental expectations than men, & the irony of Patsy's American reality being only possible because of Tru & the commoditizing of motherhood. Also, the consensus is that we understand why Cicely is the way she is, but she's still trash. This was a multi-layered discussion that we'll probably keep returning to over and over again. See y'all next month

It is such a beautiful thing to be a witness to someone’s transformation. Reading this autobiography was an experience. The level of detail, specifically in the first half of the book, swept me off my feet. Malcolm’s days in Harlem had me convinced I was born in the wrong era. (I still cannot believe the fact that he was a lindy hopper; the greatest dance form of all time, in my opinion)

I was reluctant about the autobiography being “as told by Alex Haley”. I was proved wrong. Quick. The unique thing about Haley creating this work was that the representation of each stage of Malcolm’s life was not compromised by the truths later revealed, which contributed to a shift in his beliefs. It remained authentic in reflecting Malcolm’s growth- including all the changes that came with it.

I started this book with little to no knowledge of what Malcolm X truly represented. I now have nothing but respect for him. For someone to go from being illiterate to one of the most influential leaders of all time is nothing short of amazing. Many have tried to tarnish his legacy because they could not understand his work. Malcolm X was not violent, racist nor evil. He simply spoke the truth, revealing the evil of America. His story is truly inspiring, his courage unparalleled and his legacy indelible.

If you haven’t read this book, I suggest you run out and grab it. Coffee Will Make You Black explores peer pressure, social roles, colorism and sexuality in the 60s. Read along as Stevie tries to find herself with no help from her mom, questionable friendships and more...

@jkenyartaauthor Thanks for the inspiration! I'm adding this to my TBR list! ❤️💯

@jkenyartaauthor By the way, if you like FREE books, please stop by Amazon where can read all my titles FREE until June 2nd. I'd sincerely love the opportunity to become one of your favorite new authors. 📚 ❤️😊

This book is a bit older, but the title is an entire mood. With this weird, gloomy weather, I am diving into this one today.

Re-reading this gem, because Jisaiah will start reading the youth edition and I need to be ready for ALL the questions & comments.
Also, it's just a damn good read.

@aamina.hasan It really is. The audiobook is amazing too. Can’t wait for the movie 🍿 w @lupitanyongo

@shanshantel07 @aamina.hasan omg, yes! She's going to be amazing, I just know it!

*Goes to library with the intention of just getting this week's reading material for Jisaiah - has a pile of 4 must-read books at home for the month - walks into library and peeps the face of @karamo first thing like you know you want to read me - checks it out, contemplating to put it at the bottom of the must-read pile- priorities and stuff  - makes coffee & starts reading book - I apologize to the other authors, I promise I'm a fast reader* Also, I planned on taking a nap, but the way this book is set up...

@bausalon Brauch ich!

@shanshantel07 @bausalon es ist sooo gut!!

ON TO THE NEXT ONE

Happy World Book Day!

Once a bookworm, always a bookworm.
Between two strokes and recovery, finding back to reading was hard for various reasons: patience, finding the silence and being comfortable with it and most importantly, remembering what the hell I just read.
I'm back, I'm comfy & content, happy with the reading content and getting closer to my reading goals for 2019, especially proud because it's all Black authors, Baby!
