Snuck downstairs this morning, made some tea, grabbed my favorite quilt and sat down for some reading before the house woke up! The best way to begin December!❤️ #diversebooks #blacklitsy

Chelleo Nice! Love that quilt and bookmark 1w
BellaBookNook My friend made it for me and I absolutely love to read while wrapped in it. I haven‘t been on here in so long but going to give it a try again. I just realized I‘m not subscribed to your posts that why I never see your posts. Rectifying that now!☺️ 1w

“It wasn‘t like one of those scenes in a movie, where the princess floats lightly into the waiting hero‘s arms. I was more like an anvil that comes plummeting down on a cartoon character‘s head. I fell, like a graceful barbell, right on top of Neel.”

😆 made me chuckle.

Behold the Dreamers | Imbolo Mbue

An emotional rollercoaster of a story that gives the reader a glimpse into immigrants‘ lives. Mbue does a great job of sharing each character‘s point of view. I finished it last night at 11:55 at night...I just couldn‘t put it down. Needless to say, I am a bit tired today. We also had our first snow of the season during the night.

TheBookAddict @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks yes, they are. We are lucky to live in a place surrounded by big beautiful trees. 😊 🌳 🌳💕 1mo
Cathythoughts I loved this book ❤️. And I love my country but I wish we had snow too 1mo
TheBookAddict 🙌🏽 💕📖💕 Where are you from? It‘s very pretty to look at and enjoy when you can be at home or if you like to be out playing in it, but it‘s not that great when you have to drive in it. 😔 1mo

Might as well read while we wait for the class to show up, since everything else is done.

Cathythoughts Loved this one 2mo
TheBookAddict @Cathythoughts I am enjoying it so far. I‘m not that far into it, but I‘m already bracing myself for what feel is coming. It‘s making me hurt for what will probably happen to Jende and Neni, all they want is a better life for themselves and their children. 💕💕💕 2mo

Her Body and Other Parties | Carmen Maria Machado

I worry sometimes that when we think of “diverse books“, we revert to thinking about kids/YA and school reading lists. I've written today about the importance of ALL readers diversifying their personal reading lives. Diverse reading makes us better people, and the world a better place. Plus, Her Body & Other Parties is a PERFECT spooky Halloween read! http://keepingupwiththepenguins.com/diverse-books-reading-lists/ #DiverseBooks #DiverseReads

A #mustread for everyone, whatever your thoughts or views on the lgbtq+ community. A heartbreaking retelling of what happened on bus 57 in Oakland, what led to those events, and what preceded them. The author does a great job at sharing both sides of the story and the flaws in our “justice” system.

Yestetday I started and finished listening to this heartbreaking and uplifting memoir by JVN. I love Queer Eye even though I cry while watching every episode. The Fab 5 are wonderful individuals who do so much for others. JVN is open and honest about his struggles, accomplishments, and aspirations in this memoir. I definitely love her more after listening to this. Yes queen, do you!!!💕💕💕 #JVN #QueerEye #diversebooks #LGBTQ #QueerBooks #memoir
