Birthday – A Stunning Coming of Age and Love Story LGBTQ+

Birthday – A Stunning Coming of Age and Love Story LGBTQ+

Where to begin? There’s a premise. The publisher’s description of Birthday, by Meredith Russo, does a better job of it than I can. “Two kids, Morgan and Eric, are bonded for life after being born on the same day at the same time.

Book Review for The Good Luck Girls

Book Review for The Good Luck Girls

The Good Luck Girls by Charlotte Nicole Davis My takeaway: Aster is a kickass heroine who takes no prisoners in this all POC novel of the weird west. Brava, Ms Davis!

Black Klansman [#Blackathon 2019] Nonfiction, More Than a Color, My Kind of Mystery

Black Klansman: Race, Hate, and the Undercover Investigation of a Lifetime   Wow. What a wild ride. And I don’t mean roller coaster hang-onto-your-seats-bang-bang ride. I mean an “if this were a novel nobody would believe it” ride, which is such a cliché it’s gotten trite and boring, but I kinda didn’t want to say an “are you shittin’ me???” ride. Ooops.
