What I’m Reading [51]

So, I didn’t get to write this post last week because my weekend was crazy and that’s usually when I write all my posts. An out-of-state friend was in town so we spent our whole weekend haning out with people. I’ve also had a lot going on at work the past two weeks, so I’m pretty excited about relaxing this weekend. I spent all of yesterday reading and I hope to spend today reading, as well.

As always, click the images to read a description on Goodreads.

New Books

Library Books

  

Queens of Geek by Jen Wilde
This is one of my picks for the diversity presentation I’m working on. There are so many different representations in this one, but I’m reading it for the neurodiverse rep.

Meet Cute
This looks adorable and diverse, so I must read it.

Jane by Aline Brosh McKenna & Ramon K. Perez
A modern day retelling of Jane Eyre in graphic format? Yes, please!

Purchased

 

Strangers by David A. Robertson
It took me a bit to find another YA novel with indigenous rep, but I found one! I’ll be reading this one soon since our presentation in is a few weeks!

Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi
I just had to buy this when I saw it in the book store. The cover is so awesome and I’ve been anticipating it for a while. I’ve been really good about not buying tons of books, so I decided to get this one.

What I Read

  

the princess saves herself in this one by Amanda Lovelace
I’m not sure why I waited so long to read this. It is so beautiful and I’ll be reading her next poetry collection as soon as I can get my hands on it.

Maurice the Unbeastly by Amy Dixon & Karl James Mountford
I normally don’t share the picture books I read, but this one was too great to keep to myself. The illustrations are beautiful. The book is funny and full of alliteration and great vocabulary. It’s one of the best picture books I’ve read in a while.

Queens of Geek by Jen Wilde
Y’all! This book is so good! I have some students that would LOVE this book. I’m adding it to my book order, for sure. I’m also going to be talking about it at my diversity presentation because it is FULL of diversity and it’s all so well done.

What I’m Reading

  

Want by Cindy Pon
I had to switch to audio on this one, but I just wasn’t getting anywhere with the text. Now, I feel like I’m getting somewhere with it. Nothing against the book, but I’m not generally a big sci-fi reader and this one is for my presentation.

Hate to Want You by Alisha Rai
I feel like I could have read this in one sitting, but my reading obligations are so scheduled right now that I only five minutes here or there. So far, it’s good!

A Girl Like That by Tanaz Bhathena
This one is a little heavier than I was expecting, so I’m finding I have to take breaks from it. I think it’s going to end up being really great, though.

What’s Next

  

Jane by Aline Brosh McKenna & Ramon K. Perez
I’ll probably just read this tomorrow because I’m excited about it and I think it will be a fun, quick read.

Noteworthy by Riley Redgate
I am so excited about this book. So much of what I’m reading is heavy and I think this will just bring me some joy in the same way Queens of Geek did.

The Poet X by Elizabeth Acevedo
I’ve been having concentration problems lately, so I downloaded a bunch of the books I wanted to read on Audible. This one has a great narrator so I’m really excited to listen to it when I’m finished with Want.
