10 Black Authored Books On My TBR 📚 Blogtober #11

Today I want to talk about 10 books on my TBR that are by Black Authors that I am keen for! I own 6 of these physically but most of the others are on Scribd. So I’m hoping to read these soon!

1. Cinderella is Dead by Kalynn Bayron

I was hoping to read Cinderella is Dead in September but I didn’t get the chance! So hopefully I will get to it in October. I love the idea of a dark Cinderella retelling so I am super keen for this one!

2. This is My America by Kim Johnson

This is my America is being compared to Dear Martin by Nic Stone which I LOVED so I’m interested! This also sounds like it deals with a bit of a mystery which I have been loving lately.

3. The Black Kids by Christina Hammonds Reed

This is actually a Historical Fiction as it’s set in the 90s but it definitely gives me The Hate U Give vibes which I am currently rereading as I type this! I also got told by the person that served me at QBD when I bought it that it was amazing, so I have high hopes.

4. Dear Justyce by Nic Stone

Dear Justyce is the sequel to Dear Martin which I read last year I think and LOVED! Dear Martin was a very short book but god damn did it pack a bunch! It was amazing but also extremely emotional and I hope Dear Justyce is just as good! Might just do a reread of Dear Martin before picking this one up.

5. A Song of Wraiths and Ruin by Roseanna A. Brown

I have heard amazing things about A Song of Wraiths and Ruin and that cover is gorgeous! I also want to read more fantasy by black authors as I feel like most of the books by black authors that I read are contemporary. So I want to branch into other genres as well! So this is perfect for that.

6. The Sound of Stars by Alechia Dow

Speaking of other genres, The Sound of Stars is a Sci-Fi! I have not even read the full synopsis of this book as I was SOO freaking intrigued just by reading the bold bit at the top of the Goodreads synopsis and also the bit on the front cover of the book!

Can their love of books and pop music save the world?
(Front Cover)

Can a girl who risks her life for books and an alien who loves forbidden pop music work together to save humanity?
(Goodreads Synopsis)

I am so keen for this!

7. A Phoenix First Must Burn: Sixteen Stories or Black Girl Magic, Resistance, and Hope

A Phoenix First Must Burn is an anthology about “Black Girl Magic, Resistance, and hope” and I’m very keen! I hope to start this one at least in October and read a couple stories here and there. This cover is also stunning!

8. A Blade So Black by L.L. McKinney

A Blade so Black is a dark & black Alice in Wonderland retelling which just sounds like an amazing combo! There has been pretty mixed views on this one but I am still keen to give it a go!

9. Dread Nation by Justina Ireland

Dread Nation has SOO much hype around release but I feel like it has kinda fallen off the planet since then. I didn’t get a chance to read it around release but I am still very curious about it and hope to read it soon. This is a Historical Horror/Fantasy which I’m down for!

10. The Good Luck Girls by Charlotte Nicole Davis

This is another Historical Fantasy and the synopsis for this one sounds really interesting as well. I’m also super keen for the historical aspect as I get the hint that this will deal with slavery and such which is a topic I haven’t read enough about.

Let’s Chat!

What books by black authors are you keen to read? Are there others I should be adding to my TBR?! Let me know!

How I Read Book Tag 📚 Blogtober #10

I haven’t done any tags in ages so I thought I would throw some in during BlogTober! This one was apparently created by EnyasCorner on YouTube but it no longer has any content on the account so I can’t be sure. The post I saw this on was from 6 years ago! But I like the questions, so let’s jump in!

1. How do you find out about new books to read?

At the moment Booktube & Instagram mostly. Also Facebook Groups are a good place to find recommendations as well! I haven’t really been reading blog posts lately as I just haven’t been in the mood but I usually get reccs from there too.

2. How did you get into reading?

I have always been kinda interested in reading and I used to read books when I was in primary school but then I didn’t read for most of High School until I received a copy of Switched by Amanda Hocking in a Dolly Magazine and read it and loved it and then read the other books in the series as well as other books by the author. I then read Vampire Academy & the companion series Bloodlines and then took another long break. It wasn’t until I discovered The YA Chronicles subscription box (No longer available) & the Book Blogging community that I fully dived into read again and I haven’t stopped since.

3. How has your taste in books changed as you’ve gotten older?

Fantasy has definitely always been my favourite genre with Sci-Fi, Mystery & Historical Fiction being my second favourites and I have never been interested in romances. However now I am kinda discovering that my taste is changing from Fantasy being my favourite genre to Mystery/Thriller/Horror being my thing. I love a fantasy with a mystery as well but I am gravitating more to Mystery/Thriller/Horror now than I am to any other genre.

4. How often do you buy books?

Often! I generally buy books in batches of 4 or 5 because then I can get free shipping through Angus & Robertson which is my go to store. I usually place an order anywhere from 1 to 4 times a month depending on cash at the time but I do tend to pre-order a lot too so those orders come in over a couple months.

5. How did you get into BookTube/Book Blogging?

I’m answering this for both as I have both. For Blogging I really don’t remember who I read or what made me think ‘hey I can do that’ but I love designing websites and I used to spend hours messing with my Tumblr accounts so I took some time and set up a blog through WordPress and my first post was a review of Rebel of the Sands by Alwyn Hamilton which is still an all time fave!
As for BookTube I’m also not sure what specifically made be do it but I discovered BookTube and at the time I was filming a lot on Instagram Stories for my Bookstagram account so I thought fuck it, why not do YouTube too.

6. How do you react when you don’t like the end of a book?

I honestly don’t know how to respond to this? I finish the book and review it like usual? Depending on whether I liked the book overall I may continue if it’s a series. But that’s about it.

7. How often have you taken a sneaky look at the back page of a book to see if it’s a happy ending?

I have never actually done this. Or even ever been tempted really.

Let’s Chat!

Has your taste in books changed over the years?! Or am I the only one that did a full 360 on what genre I enjoy most!

Book To Movie/TV Adaptations I Want To Watch! 📚 Blogtober #9

Today I want to talk about some book to movie adaptations that I want to read. A lot of these have been out for a while but somehow I still haven’t watched them!

1. The Hate U Give

I loved The Hate U Give and have actually read is three times now but I am still yet to watch the movie! I’m sure it’s amazing and it’s definitely high on my priority.

2. Love, Simon

Simon Vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda was really good & I have been meaning to watch the movie for ages but just haven’t gotten there yet!

3. The Darkest Minds

The Darkest Minds is another I have read more than once but still haven’t watched the movie. I feel like this one kinda fell under the radar and wasn’t overly hyped. I hoping it will be awesome though!

4. Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children is one that I am worried about. I know that they made some major changes regarding the abilities of two of the characters, so this has always kind of put me off. I am curious to give it ago though and hopefully it is still a fun movie even if it isn’t accurate to the book.

5. Escape From Mr Lemoncello’s Library

I only found out a couple weeks ago that there is a Show for Escape From Mr. Lemoncello’s Library but I am so keen! This is such a fun book and I hope the movie will be just as fun. Also this is technically a TV show but there is only 1 episode and thats over an hour and it covers everything that happens in book 1. So I’m not sure why it just isn’t a movie 🤷🏻‍♀️

6. The Book Thief

Another one I’m really not sure why I haven’t read yet. I read The Book Thief a few years ago and really enjoyed it but just haven’t watched the movie yet.

7. The 5th Wave

I haven’t actually read the book for this one but it is a book to movie adaptations so it counts! The 5th Wave was on my TBR but I just haven’t gotten to it yet but I have seen the trailer for the movie and it looks interesting so I’m curious!

8. Howl’s Moving Castle

This is another one I haven’t actually read the book of but I hear SO MUCH hype around the Howl’s Moving Castle movie so I want to give it a go!

Let’s Chat!

Do you recommend any of these? Which one should I watch first?!

All the Stars and Teeth 💫 Spoiler Free Review 📚 Blogtober #7

Title: All the Stars and Teeth
Series Name: All the Stars and Teeth
Author: Adalyn Grace
Genre: YA Fantasy
Publication Date: Feb 4th, 2020
Pages: 368
Publishers: Imprint
Rating:

4.5 Stars

Goodreads Synopsis

She will reign.

As princess of the island kingdom Visidia, Amora Montara has spent her entire life training to be High Animancer—the master of souls. The rest of the realm can choose their magic, but for Amora, it’s never been a choice. To secure her place as heir to the throne, she must prove her mastery of the monarchy’s dangerous soul magic.

When her demonstration goes awry, Amora is forced to flee. She strikes a deal with Bastian, a mysterious pirate: he’ll help her prove she’s fit to rule, if she’ll help him reclaim his stolen magic.

But sailing the kingdom holds more wonder—and more peril—than Amora anticipated. A destructive new magic is on the rise, and if Amora is to conquer it, she’ll need to face legendary monsters, cross paths with vengeful mermaids, and deal with a stow-away she never expected… or risk the fate of Visidia and lose the crown forever.

I am the right choice. The only choice. And I will protect my kingdom.

Set in a kingdom where danger lurks beneath the sea, mermaids seek vengeance with song, and magic is a choice, Adalyn Grace’s All the Stars and Teeth is a thrilling fantasy for fans of Stephanie Garber’s Caraval and Sarah J. Maas’s Throne of Glass series.

Dark blue background with spine bones up either side of cover. There is a Boat on waves in the bottom left, Mermaid tail on the bottom right, skull surrounded by octopus tentacles in top left & two hands holding a crown in top right. In middle left & right is an identical decorative sword.

All the Stars and Teeth was amazing! This whole story and world is extremely unique and refreshing. Majority of the plot was unpredictable and it kept me on my toes. I also loved the pacing as it was mostly fast paced that made the books quick and engaging to read but there were also those few slower sections thrown in to really concentrate on world and characters.

While I don’t usually enjoy romance and while I didn’t particularly care one way or anything for the romance in this book I also didn’t hate it. It did feel natural and developed well rather than falling prey to bad tropes.

I really enjoyed the characters and most of them were very fleshed out and felt realistic. I also loved that most of the major characters were badasses and I was rooting for all of them.

The characters and the magic system is really what invested me in this book. I also really enjoyed learning about the backstory and building up the world. Everything was very well described & atmospheric.

Overall I really enjoyed All the Stars and Teeth and I am keen to get my hands on All the Tides of Fate which is set to release February 2nd 2021. I’m also very keen to see what worlds/magic systems that Adalyn Grace creates next after the All the Stars and Teeth duology is over. This one was so unique that I’m hyped to see what will be next!

Blogtober 2020 End of the Year series!

10 Audiobooks I want to read before 2020 ends 📚 Blogtober #5

Today I want to talk about 10 audiobooks I want to read by the end of the year!

1. Traitor by Amanda McCrina

This is a World War II story set in Poland 1944. I love reading Historical Fiction but I especially enjoy listening to them on audiobook. I’m also very interested in WWII, so this book intrigues me especially as it doesn’t deal with the Jewish/Holocaust side of things. Those stories are pretty common and I’m on the hunt for ones that follow other parts/places during WWII.

2. Clown in a Cornfield by Adam Cesare

Another genre I enjoy listening to on audiobook is horror/thriller books. When the narration does it well it just adds an extra layer of creepy when listening to it compared to reading it yourself. This one sounds really interesting and would be a good one for the Halloween period!

3. To Best the Boys by Mary Weber

This is a YA Fantasy but it’s described as a ‘Thrilling Fantasy’ so I am keen! The synopsis sounds so interested and like I said thriller type books always sound even creepier or thrilling on audiobook.

4. The Silence of Bones by June Hur

This is a YA Historical Mystery and sounds really intriguing. I love a good mystery and I have been in a huge mystery/thriller mood so this one sounds perfect!

5. The Paper Girl of Paris by Jordyn Taylor

This is another Historical Fiction but follows 2 timelines. Now & during WWII. This one sounds so good and right up my alley but I’m also very intrigued about the dual perspectives. This is also another WWII book that is not based on the Holocaust, well I don’t think so based on the synopsis anyway.

6. We Are Not Free by Traci Chee

This is yet another WWII book but this one is following a group of Japanese-Americans during that time. This is definitely not a perspective I have read about yet so I am very intrigued. This one also has a full cast narration which makes me very keen!

7. The Black Kids by Christina Hammonds Reed

The Black Kids is another Historical Fiction but this one is set in the 90s. This gives me very similar vibes to The Hate U Give except set. near 30 years ago. I am very interested in reading more books by black authors and I think this is a perfect one to read soon.

8. Ready Player Two by Ernest Cline

Ready Player Two is not yet released but I will be reading it as soon as it releases! I LOVE Ready Player One and the audiobook is amazing. It’s narrated by Wil Wheaton who is just perfect for the book and they are bringing him back to read Ready Player Two as well! So I am so freaking keen!

9. Rivers of London by Ben Aaronovitch

I have been eyeing this series on Audible for at least a year and I finally need to just give it a go! This is an adult Fantasy but also labelled as Mystery. I do love Fantasy but I can’t always get into adult fantasy as it’s sometimes too heavy, so I will just have to see with this one but I am intrigued to try it.

10. The Left-Handed Booksellers of London by Garth Nix

I am aiming to try and read more books by male authors before the end of the year. Currently male authors make up only 15% of all the books I have read this year. So I thought this would be a good one for this and the synopsis sounds amazing!

Let’s Chat!

What audiobook do you recommend the most?
Mine would definitely be The Illuminae Files as they are just so well done!

The Bone Thief 💫 Spoiler Free Review 📚 Blogtober #3

Title: The Bone Thief
Author: Breeana Shields
Series: The Bone Charmer
Genre: YA Fantasy
Publication Date: May 26th, 2020
Pages: 375
Publishers: Page Street Kids
Rating:

5 Stars

Goodreads Synopsis

A deft exploration of the weight of grief and cost of revenge, Breeana Shields’s Bone Charmer duology reaches its spine-tingling conclusion in this high-octane fantasy-thriller.

Saskia returns to Ivory Hall to train in bone magic, determined to stop Latham from gaining the power of all three Sights—past, present, and future. But danger lurks within the fortress’s marrow. Trials are underway for the apprentices, and the tasks feel specifically engineered to torment Saskia, which is exactly what Latham wants.

As she grows increasingly more suspicious, her thirst for revenge becomes all-consuming. Together with the friends she can trust and the boy she loved in another lifetime, Saskia traces clues from Latham’s past to determine what he’ll do next. Their search leads them across Kastelia and brings them to a workshop housing a vast collection of horrors, including the bones Latham stole from Gran, and the knowledge that the future isn’t all that’s in jeopardy—but the past as well.

The Bone Thief Book Cover

I absolutely loved The Bone Charmer and you can find my spoiler free review for it HERE!

I think the thing I love the most about this series is the characters and the world. The magic system is extremely unique and I love learning about it and the world in general. The world building is amazing in this series and I find it very atmospheric especially when the MC is back in her home town. I enjoyed that we got to discover more of world in this book and explore new places.

As I said before I loved the characters but especially the main character. This book really shows the main characters struggles and her growing throughout the story because of what she goes through. I also really enjoyed how well her confusion was written when it comes to her dealing with the plot of book 1 (no spoilers here). I would have been disappointed if she just went straight back to life as usual as if nothing happened. So I’m glad that was done well. I do also enjoy the side characters and they are all very well fleshed out and realistic. Also I love the focus on friendship and really enjoyed the friend group in this book! There was a bit of romance but it was done well too given the circumstances. So, I’m not mad.

I also found this book extremely gripping. I read it in just a couple sittings and couldn’t put it down. It was very action packed and hooked me from the very beginning. There was also a good combination of fast paced action and slower paced world building & character development. Which made for an enjoyable experience.

Overall I really enjoyed The Bone Thief and book 1, The Bone Charmer, and I highly recommend checking them out! While I would love to read more following these characters or set in this world I also like that it’s a duology as that isn’t too common in YA Fantasy. I am also very keen to read Breeana Shields next book The Splendor which is set to release Fall 2021!
