I just finished listening to the amazing Children of Blood And Bone by @tadeyemibooks & it is truly surpasses the hype! This is the second novel i’ve heard narrated by @prospertunia & she is amazing & adds to great works!
I came for the west african fantasy YA and stayed for the allegory for the modern black experience! 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟
Summary: We start with Zélie Adebola in Orïsha where magic disappeared overnight after the King’s raid that took all white haired maji including her mother. She discovers a way to bring the mani’s powers back to the survivors & goes on her journey with some companions Tzain & Amari.
I loved the multi-faceted narrative that introduces us to the complex & authentic feeling character.

M is for mooncake! 🌕

We read ‘The Shadow in the Moon’, a newly-published book which tells the folktale of the Mid-Autumn festival. At a family gathering where two young sisters are enjoying some delicious mooncakes their grandmother shares the story behind them. The Mid-Autumn festival falls next Monday; happening as always on a full moon. 🌕

We tried out our mooncake molds with some playdoh just for fun. They turned out amazingly! The girls had so much fun making them and afterwards playing tea parties and stacking and counting them! Swipe right to see..

❓What’s a book you put off reading for a while or read reluctantly?
.
I wasn’t a fan of The Upside of Unrequited, so I wasn’t planning to ever read Albertalli’s other books, including Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda. Thankfully, @bythebooks (with whom I share similar taste in books) convinced me to give it a try.
.
So glad she did! Simon was such an adorable book! I ended up really enjoying it. It’s set largely in Simon’s high school, so I chose it for today’s #schwabseptember prompt (Lockland University | school).
.
Print from the August DreamyBox! The October theme will be announced soon - check @dreamyandco for updates! Use KELSEA10 to save on a box or anything in the shop. 🖤

✍️WRITING UPDATE
I’m about to go work on re-outlining my novel now! Again. 😆 I was so thrilled to finally have finished the first draft, only to realize that with all of the changes I’ve made, I essentially need to rewrite about 60% of the book. 🙃 But at least it has a solid beginning and end. Still planning to have it done by the end of the year!
.
Yesterday, while looking for the release date of The Burning White on @androssguile’s site (brentweeks.com), I came across his writing advice section. It was funny, helpful and inspirational and I’d definitely recommend looking it over if you’re looking for writing advice!

“I’m not ashamed to say I’m still learning. I’ve grown tremendously as an individual through my formal education as well as the global education I have received by travelling the world through music.⠀
The lack of access to education for children around the world is a massive problem, but that does not mean we should throw up our hands in despair and surrender. Instead, we need to take on as much of the challenge as we can manage to set an example and see the difference. The notion that millions of children are desperate to go to school and are not given the opportunity is something I cannot accept. I want to be part of a solution that works.”⠀

We applaud @rihanna for her compelling @guardian essay on how we can fix global girls education! 👏🏾👏🏾⠀

Someone recently asked about book recommendations for an 18 month old Black boy. These are our 12 recommended board books featuring Black children and families. ALL are by Black authors. Since research shows that by the age of 3, white children already possess a pro-white/anti-Black bias, we suggest non-Black families seek out these titles as well:

One Love by Cedella Marley
Please Baby Please by Spike Lee & Tonya Lewis Lee
Every Little Thing by Cedella Marley
What is Light by Markette Sheppard
Pretty Brown Face by Andrea and Brian Pinkney
Be Boy Buzz by bell hooks
Homemade Love by bell hooks
Whose Knees Are These? by Jabari Asim
I Love My Haircut! by Natasha Anastasia Tarpley
I Love My Hair! by Natasha Anastasia Tarpley
Happy to be Nappy by bell hooks
Girl of Mine by Jabari Asim

Parents play such a vital role when molding future readers.🖤

Have you noticed that instagram messes up your hashtag posts?

#readinginthemargins No favorite cause they're all exiting to discover. Currently I'm reading about a version of #bruja culture. It's not as easy as saying "that's Hispanic" because some brujas draw from African roots too
