Kindred | Octavia Butler

For anyone that has read this book or love this author— how are you guys feeling about this series coming to FX? It has been a long time coming, what is everyone‘s thoughts? Octavia Butler is iconic — I have mixed feelings about this. Love to hear your thoughts #poc #woc #bipoc #timetravel

BkClubCare If I watched TV 📺 I would be excited!! But sadly (?!) I don‘t do much box-watching. But when I am in the mood to watch books (films based on books), I will search for it in the future 4mo
MoonWitch94 WHAT?!?!?! Oh I must‘ve missed this! I WANT to be excited…but adaptations are always tricky. I hope it‘s done well. 🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻 4mo
Reggie I can‘t. In the same way I can‘t ever watch Call Me By Your Name, in the same way I will never read the sequel to Aristotle and Dante. I can‘t. That book is near perfect and what I have in my head is good for me. 4mo
annahenke This would be hard to watch I think on multiple levels - the content and the rich literary history of this book Among them. 4mo
Readergrrl I agree. Very mixed emotions. I teach this novel every year, pairing it with works from living poets and sources from LearningforJustice.com. While I‘m eager to see it adapted for the screen, now I‘ll have entire groups of students who will never open the book. 😢 And, frankly, some of the scenes in this novel will be watered down by the film when they are better left to the reader‘s imagination. 3mo

This book right here! Let me tell you, so much fun as for a retelling. I will say I am a little annoyed with the MC Zuri, but I get it. I love that Bushwick is not only the backdrop but also a character that I didn‘t know I needed. Bushwick has a life, a soul, & independent of the characters around it. Just my thoughts. #poc #woc #ny #pride #prejudice #retelling

I really enjoyed this book. This book has serious fangirl energy. I give this book 3.5. I think the friends to lovers story was cute and cameos by Chris Evans was nice. I am sad that I did not learn the secret to marrying Keanu Reeves. But I fell in love, had an adventure & still love Keanu. I think there could be a second book with the friend. I vote spring/summer read. #weekender #friends2lovers #poc #woc #pocauthour

Ummm 9 out of 10. This book was a fun read. I enjoyed the geeky elements and the honest depiction of black women who love geek/nerd fandom and the struggle within it. Also shined a light on toxic cosplay gatekeeping behavior. Anyone could cosplay, from store bought to handmade, all body types, all genders, beginners to professionals, all races, should enjoy the art of cosplaying. This book gave me spicy fun and had heart. #poc #woc #cosplayer

One of my favorite stories - I believe there is series based on these characters. I might have to read it after this little taste of their story. Unless it‘s connected like blackout: the novel - I am not going to read these stories in order. I will say they do get a little dark in some cases. There are not many traditional happy endings.#poc #lgbtq #anthology #shortstories #darkstories #woc #cliffhanger

OMG — these characters are taking me through it right now. Like seriously. This story got me in my feels. Someone should warn folks — the feelings I have is being betrayed, happy, lost, & looking for book 3 or Netflix to pick this up. #magic #wlw #poc #woc #blackgirlmagic #hecate #plantmagic #mythology

I am going to give this 4.5 stars because you have to read a second book. Lol the story was well done & the pieces came together. I could guess some but there were plot twist. Now I have to read the second book because there is so much more to know. This book weaves Greek myths & history together while giving a modern story. Add to your stack but make sure to add both. I am glad I waited till second book launched last month! 😉#woc #magic

I take a book everywhere — lol I got to sit and rest my legs while everyone was buzzing around me. I had the best time. This was a sitting room for convention attendees. I enjoyed butter beer & reading. Can‘t read about magic without my wand.#Potterheads can you guess whose wand this is? #magic #fandays #readanywhere #poc #woc #magic
