Of course the color balance on my camera app shifts the purples to a more blue or red aspect 😩 but trust me - these are purple covers!
Can you believe I only read Alice in Wonderland in the past few years? I don’t remember reading it as a child and never had a copy until this slim edition appeared in a book box and I loved the silliness and exploration of what it means to be a child.
Shadowhouse Fall is the second in the Shadowshaper Universe. I love this series - guys - it’s so Brooklyn, so full of heart and magic and tradition and teen drama - just so great!!! I’ve cried a bit (which here means like a baby) and wish I could join Sierra and her friends on their adventures.
The Oblisk Gate is also a second in a series - the Broken Earth trilogy. I have never been so immersed in such a fully realized world that deeply reflects a world of control, prejudice, love and strength. When we talk about great fantasy worlds - this is what we’re looking for!
Lastly I am currently reading this timely (a sign of our times) look at transwomen, non binary and queer black, indigenous and women of color within the current rights movement. It’s so honest and revealing in how often some voices are overlooked, drowned out and flat out ignores when we talk about state violence, imprisonment and everyday life. I’m trying to up my non-fiction reading as well stay informed and aware of how people live in the world. 📕
