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! I could see by the cover that the main character in this book was a person of color, but had not realized that all the characters were until I started reading–all of which made me want to read it even more. I was not disappointed. Charlotte Nicole Smith’s great...

Josephine: The Dazzling Life of Josephine Baker #blackathon 2019

This is frustratingly weird. I worked on this post yesterday and it’s gone. While I guess I must have quite the program without saving, I could swear that WordPress also does autosaves? No? And I can’t recreate everything. But here’s what I can tell you quickly.   Josephine: The Dazzling Life of Josephine Baker Written by Patricia Hruby Powell Illustrated by Christian Robinson (Coretta Scott King Illustrator Honor Books)...

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. As often happens I’m...

What to Say Next by Julie Buxbaum ; Young Adult, 5 Stars

What to Say Next by Julie Buxbaum My rating: 5 of 5 stars When I began reading this book and realized it was about a gifted, apparently-on-the-spectrum guy and a gifted girl without neuro-issues, I felt a bit of ‘oh, another one? are guys with Asperger’s sadly becoming the new trope that girls sigh over?’ and felt a bit disgusted and a bit bored and almost stopped listening. But it’s not. It’s not ‘just...

Rivers of London – Body Work [Graphic Novel] #blackathon, My Kind of Mystery

So I had a long chatty post of my thoughts on this, and they didn’t save, and I don’t know why. ‘Tis weird. So for now, let me say this. I am really glad that the Wakanda Forever challenge in #blackathon reminded me that I had this graphic novel on my Kindle Fire* yet had never read it.** Because I have now discovered that I actually loved the experience of reading it this way, despite never having been able to get into...
