Absolutely loved this! Gabourey Sidibe has such a wonderful voice as a writer; I could hear her in my brain as I read this. She does a great job both dispelling any stereotypes people might have about her after assuming she and Precious character are one and the same while talking honestly about the difficulties she's faced in her life. There's a healthy dose of Twitter mockery as well. A great memoir, and I'd love to read more from her!

The development of both of these characters and their relationship is well done. They are both functioning adults dealing with their own trauma. Nya is trying to break away from the control of her abusive father. Johan suffers from a fear of abandonment because his mother died when he was young. Johan also has a younger brother that he wants to protect. This was funny, engaging and sexy.

New JF release we found today at the library. It is stunningly beautiful with a lovely theme of creative expression through art, dance, weather, transformation, space and imagination. 5 🌟

Continuing my novella streak with this gem by Alyssa Cole. A fun fandom romp with tons of fangirl feels, representation, and banter. Really wish I could watch Reject Squad Ultra, such a cool concept!!!!

Loved this novella about Likotsi and Fabiola. The alternating POVs switching between the present after Fabiola "ghosted" her (kinda) and the past when they first met during Thabiso's first stay in New York were a great way to tell the story. Definitely a fun aside in the series!

HOTPock3tt I loved this one too! ♥️ 1w

Sunday Read! A book in translation that is sci-fi and jumps straight into questions of climate change, technology, Yoruba ritual, queer politics, poverty, colonialism and contemporary art! #mustread #lgbt #translated #booklove #ReadFastDieYoung #bookart #bookstagram
