Hello all! I just wanted to inform you that I'm getting @yadiversity up and running again. For the longest time it truly felt like I was struggling to keep it going and then I ended up getting burnt out from that. •

But I recently got inspired to restart it again and keep it going! Especially since Of Fire And Stars will be our book of the month for April! @brashbook is such an amazing author, I love her spin on the whole "prince + princess" fairy tale and instead it's a "princess + princess" tale, which I truly cannot wait to dive into!

Some of my fave pics from my beautiful daughter's @thekaliflower Dead Things photoshoot.

Okay, here's a tiny snippet for #wipwednesday, Book 3 #sinistersoulsanddeadthings . Hopefully, I haven't shared this. Unbeta'd and massively unedited.
Tristin's eyes seemed to have a will of their own, dragging low over chiseled abs, hungrily following the trail of hair that disappeared into pants riding low on narrow hips. He really was insanely beautiful. It would be so easy with him.

He tipped her chin up, mouth covering hers in a brief kiss that had her whining for more. “I’m not a bad guy, Tristin, but I will be if that’s what you need right now.” Her heart skipped as nimble fingers slipped the strap of her sports bra out of his way, blushing at the breathy sound she made when his lips skimmed across her bare shoulder. “I can do things to you that would make you forget all about him, at least for tonight,” he promised. "In fact, I've spent hours thinking about all the ways I could ruin you." Tristin's eyes fluttered shut as his tongue licked the hollow at the base of her throat before trailing biting kisses along the slender column of her neck. This was exactly what she needed. It was like she was under a spell, hanging on every word that fell from his perfect lips. When his mouth pressed against her ear, she leaned into it, as hungry for his words as she was his touch. "But when you wake up in the morning, you’re going to realize that what we did fixed nothing. Quinn will still be gone, you're heart will still be broken, only you'll hate yourself a little more...and you'll hate me too." It was like he'd doused her in ice water. Her face burned as she hit him until he let her go. "I already hate you," she swore, as her feet touched the ground. "I don't know what I was thinking." #bibliophile #epicreads #bookstagram #wordnerd #booknerds #yalovin #yaparanormal #yalit #diversereads #diversityinya #shifters #witches #reapers #fae #lgbtbooks #yadiversity #deadlings

El Odio Que Das

de Angie Thomas ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Starr tiene 16 años y vive en dos mundos muy diferentes. Un mundo es el barrio pobre donde vive y el otro mundo es su escuela con mucha gente blanca. En su pueblo ella es la hija del único hombre que “deja” la banda, y la uúnica chica que va a escuela con chicos blancos. En su escuela ella juega a baloncesto y es genial porque ella es la unica chica negra. Para vivir en dos mundos ella tiene que hablar diferentemente, pero cuando vio a un policia que disparó a su mejor amigo su vida es destrozado. Este libro es la historia de Starr cuando los dos mundos unen.

La voz de Starr es muy auténtico y fresco. Pude entender sus pensamientos contradictorios. No es solo una historia sobre #blacklivesmatter, pero es una historia de ser mayor para alguien que es diferente que gente en su alrededor. El autor construye personajes para establecer una relación empática. Este libro es genial! Tengo ganas de leer el próximo libro de @acwrites!

We. Need. More. Diverse. Books.
I'm tired of reading about the same type of girl/guy, the same guy x girl romance. Yeah they're fine, but there's wayyyyy too many of them compared to diverse books. I'm never gonna know what it's like to be a poc, or be gay or trans so reading about these types of characters not only creates representation, but also gives people a better understanding of others. I think if there's more diverse books, more people will read them and be more understanding of others who are different than them. And that's what the world needs these days. I love to read about diverse characters, it makes the story more realistic and enjoyable in my opinion.

City of Saints and Thieves

By Natalie C. Anderson ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️.5
Tina is a teenage Lisbeth Salander from Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. She is smart, quick, underestimated and determined to avenge her mother’s death.
Tina (Tiny) knows who killed her mother, and has devised a plan with her gangster friends on how to not only kill the man but also completely ruin him. This requires breaking into his fortress of a house and stealing his hard drive where he keeps the records of all his deadly deeds, but despite being familiar with the house she’s caught by her childhood best friend who also happens to be the son of the man whose life she’s trying to destroy.
This book has been on my TBR list since I heard about it, and I have no idea why it took me so long to pick it up. I think it’s because I had extremely high hopes for it, but luckily it lived up to them. Tina is an amazingly strong and skilled female character that not only doesn’t need to be rescued, but rescues her male friends. I truly enjoyed the drastically different setting, and the fact that Anderson shed light on what refugee life is like. I was caught off guard by the twist, and thus thoroughly enjoyed speed-reading to the end of the book to find out how it will all end. Great for all who enjoy a good mystery, or anyone who enjoyed #TheBitterSideofSweet by Tara Sullivan or #TheGirlwiththeDagonTattoo series.

One of Us Is Lying By Karen M. McManus ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Five students were sitting in detention when a car accident happened outside. The teacher went out to investigate, and by the time he came back one student, Simon, was in anaphylactic shock and close to death. Simon later died at the hospital. When the death is deemed foul play, the obvious suspects are the four students who were in the room: the brainiac destined for Yale, the Jock destined for the MLB, the deadbeat destined for jail, and the permanent arm candy destined to really do nothing more than agree with everything her controlling boyfriend says.
The Breakfast Club meets And Then There Were None – except only one person dies. This high school drama was a beguiling read with a much-needed twist i.e. the murder mystery aspect. You read to the end to find out who killed Simon, but are pleasantly pleased to learn more about each suspect as the story goes along. I love when I pick up a random book and find out it has a POC in it. Bronwyn, the brainiac, is half Colombian, and throughout the book she confronts why she may have always pushed herself to be that much better than other students in her class.
I may have called a lot of the plot “twists”, but I still enjoyed this read. A great read for those who like trying to figure out the story before the end of the book, or someone who needs a quick read to get them out of a reading funk.

A princess, a horse, and... another princess! One of my absolute favorite reads from last year, and I'm hopefully awaiting a second book. Please say there's a sequel, @brashbook ! 👸❤️👸 .

THIS BOOK. So, so good, and totally surpasses the hype. 💖 I loved how real Starr and her family felt; they aren't just characters on a page but actual people. Tragic and sad, yet full of heart, this is a must read. 💡💡💡💡💡 -Cole

Tina, a refugee from Congo living in Kenya, is determined to avenge her mother's murder at any cost. She's convinced her mother's former employer was the one who pulled the trigger. With the help of some unlikely people, her whole world changes when she learns the truth. Definitely not a happy story, but I enjoyed Tina's journey a great deal. 💡💡💡💡 -Cole

I was hesitant to read this book, insta-love is not my thing. But I was pleasantly surprised. Natasha, a science loving, undocumented immigrant is being deported the day she meets Daniel, a poet and first generation Korean American. I loved the chapters from the supporting cast, they were a nice reminder that everyone has their own story. 3.5 x 💡-Cole

Confession- I actually didn't finish I Hunt Killers. It's not that I DNFd it, life kind of got crazy and I had to put it on the back burner and just never got back around to it. But it is definitely on my list of books to finish this year. Does anyone else do that? Do you just keep a stack of books you're "currently reading" that just keeps getting bigger while you move onto new books?

I hope everyone is having a great Friday. ✨
