No Stone Unturned | Brandon Massey

ARGS You owe me nothing! Yes yaws short of amazing and to see one of my former scholars shine bright and step into who she is, is exceptional!! Of course I couldn‘t leave without buying a book or two or three and a few for my classroom library.

No Stone Unturned | Brandon Massey
post image

Pearls pick for the month of October will have us either sitting on the edge of our seats or covering our whole trying to read at the same time. Brandon Massey never disappoints so I‘m sure this will be another thriller we can‘t stop talking about.

It‘s taken me sometime to get through this book but I can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel. The joy of reading will always be a light that shines for me but a light that shines even brighter is this reading journal that showed all of the excitement when unboxing. Litjoycrate, you owe me nothing.

Black Cake | Charmaine Wilkerson
post image

This book haul will hopefully pull me out of the reading depression I‘ve been in. The last few months I‘ve started then stopped and started again without completion while hoping one of the books will be THE ONE. The Ashwaghanda tea had me at hello and is helping me relax my mind, body and soul.

JamieArc Hope you get your book mojo back! I‘ve heard really good things about Black Cake and plan on reading it this month. 2mo
Smrloomis Hmmm maybe a graphic novel would help? I like to read those in-between more substantial reading, but that‘s just me. 2mo
Bookpearl @Smrloomis I actually started reading one last week called Lore Olympus and loving it! 2mo
Bookpearl @JamieArc Me too! 😩 I‘ve heard great things about black cake too so praying it lives up to the hype. 2mo
Smrloomis @Bookpearl Awesome!! 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽 2mo

Making Friends | Kristen Gudsnuk
post image

Contrary to what my coffee mug says, mornings are not only pretty but peaceful warm and GOD given. My books and brew this morning had me loving this it‘s so spot on! Middle school can be tough and she tackles more than a few issue in the book. Shoutout to my daughter from another mother who let me borrow her copy. I would tag her but stranger danger there‘s a lot of weirdo‘s in this world.

The 1619 Project: A New Origin Story | Nikole Hannah-Jones, The New York Times Company
post image

On today‘s episode of books and brews The 1619 Project by Nikole Hannah-Jones has me all in my feelings and wanting to move right out of Virginia. The history that I have absorbed this morning is not only hard to process but digest as well. I started this book a while back and had to put it down but my ancestors stirred my spirit this morning and here I am learning so that I may pour OUR history into OUR scholars.

Reading while running errands is my new thing to do. Every chance I get I‘ll read a few pages…while waiting in line, when hubby runs in the hardware store, sitting in traffic or waiting on meds. If there‘s a minute, best believe I‘ll be reading. #illreadanywhere #wheredoyouliketoread #kindlepaperwhite #mrswiggins

Dear Lolly,
I wish I could hug you and tell you everything will be alright. Death is not easy for adults to experience and as a young scholar I‘m sure it‘s even harder to process. Am I the only one who talks to fictional characters?

Time to decompress…it‘s been one of those days! 3 more days until spring break!! Am I the only one whose bookshelves look a mess right now? 😩

Nute My bookshelves were always well organized for a very long time, but since I have run out of shelving room and now that I try to shove books into any tiny space available there is no longer any organization.😕 Good luck with your reorganization! 6mo

The only thing saving this read is the honey peach tea. This was my first read by Stuart Turton and I‘m a little perplexed as to why this book had such great reviews.

Rachiiebookdragon I‘m perplexed too, it‘s not an easy read and the audiobook didn‘t help 😴 1y
Bookpearl @Rachiiebookdragon Ever other page I kept looking around waiting for someone to give me a clear explanation as to WHY!! 😩 1y

The Other Woman | Eric Jerome Dickey
post image

The passing of Eric Jerome Dickey still has me shook and I‘m about to revisit a few of his older titles.
The Other Woman will have you on the edge of your seat and ready to jump off the rollercoaster. As for Freckles, she will forever be etched in my soul. I still feel her emotions as I talk about the infidelity and after many years I still say, I would have shot him.
