It‘s Lit Book Club‘s reading selection was Nella Larson‘s Passing. We not only read the book but also did a group viewing of the Netflix movie. A great discussion as always!!

squirrelbrain I just read this too, prompted by the movie coming out. I‘m going to try to watch it soon…. 2w
BiblioLitten How‘s the movie? I‘m going to watch it tomorrow 2w
batsy I'm looking forward to the movie! But also a little nervous that it lives up to expectations, because I really love the book. 2w
Chelleo @BiblioLitten @batsy The movie was good. Stayed pretty close to the book. 2w

This was a big ass book and a bit outdated but still essential reading for anyone interested or curious about institutional racism and/or reproductive rights. The research is extensive and at times I needed to take a break because it got to be too heavy. #Blitsy #BlackLitsy #ReadDiverseBooks #BIPOCbooks

A Lowcountry Bride: A Novel | Preslaysa Williams

Mehso-so

I really wanted to love this book because it‘s rare that I come across a Black Filipina main character that reflects me and heritage. There were some elements that I like…particularly how both cultures showed up in her work but it felt off and a bit forced. I think the narration did little to help as some of the Tagalog words were mispronounced. #blitsy #readdiversebooks

8yo K has a summer book project for this title. We started the audiobook on our road trip and I was really surprised at how much 6yo took to both the audiobook narration and the story. After we listened I ask questions about the story and J answered most of them even though it‘s his brother‘s assignment. #BoysReadToo #RaisingReaders

We took a quick trip to Chicago & I was finally able to visit Semicolon Bookstore. The space is small but gorgeous.

If you‘re in Chicago, be sure to visit & patronize them! https://www.chicagomag.com/arts-culture/July-2019/At-This-New-Bookstore-Poets-an...

Chelleo @Nute — The owner had plans to open up a very different type of space (membership literary/libraryesque co-working space). It kept hitting snags and the concept was change to a bookstore. “It represents the point in a sentence where it could stop, but the author decides to proceed”. 4mo

leah152 What's this about litsy penpals? Not that I need any more but my antenna's gone up lol! 😊 8mo
Chelleo @leah152 LOL! Awhile back someone, I‘d have to dig through the hashtag, coordinated a Litsy Pen Pal matching. I think there was a general form and they matched you with someone. After that, pairs worked out how frequently they wanted to communicate and what, if at all, type of gift giving scenarios they‘d do. We exchange birthday and Christmas treats (sometime all rolled into one). Otherwise we send cards/letters. 8mo
Chelleo @leah152 Every so often another matching pops up so keep an eye out, usually you can find them via #LitsyHappenings or @LitsyHappenings 8mo

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️🎧2020.02.26 — Wow! What a great ride. It‘s a BAB but worth the 18 hours of narration. It‘s a new take on the tale of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table with a twist of Root/Blood Magic woven in. I‘m not well versed in King Arthur‘s story but this book makes me want to check into it. Can‘t wait for the next book! #Blitsy #BlackLitsy #ReadDiverseBooks

I lucked up with a great follow-up read to Amari and the Night Brothers. Another fantasy with a Black female protagonist...a bit older (college aged), darker and heavier but a really good book so far (7 of 18 hours in!). #BlackLitsy #Blitsy #ReadDiverseBooks

Zoes_Human This is so good! The narrator for the audio is one of the best too. 9mo

This weekend was filled with books and #plantbabies. I told myself I wouldn‘t buy any new books for myself but I couldn‘t pass up the deal on these two titles. ($3.99 and $2.99 USD). I also picked up 3 new plant babies, a new plant stand and made a new cutting.

Chelleo I picked up this and the tagged book. 10mo
MarriedtoMrT I listened to I‘d Rather be Reading on audio and it felt like a hug. I hope you enjoy it! 10mo
Chelleo @MarriedtoMrT — I started it last night and read 3 chapters. Really enjoying it so far. (edited) 10mo

Another bookstore outing with my littles. They picked up some great titles today. Tagged book is adorable! #BlackBoyJoy #BoysReadToo #OwnVoices #BrilliantBlackBoy #Blitsy #BlackLitsy #WeNeedDiverseBooks

TheNerdGodfather Definitely going to check out Cool Cuts for my little guy even though he‘s only 4 months old 🙂 10mo
Chelleo @TheNerdGodfather It‘s cute. Not much of a story as much as it depicts different hairstyle and share a confidence building affirmation. Perfect for little dudes. 10mo

I‘m having a really hard time connecting with the main character. It‘s interesting enough to keep my interest though. Wondering how this will sort out. #Blitsy #BlackLitsy #OwnVoices #ReadDiverseBooks
