Standalone Sunday: The Refugees – Viet Thanh Nguyen

Dear Reader, With today’s review I’m participating in Standalone Sunday, a weekly feature hosted by Megan at Bookslayer Reads. Each Sunday you feature a book that’s not apart of a series (because they deserve love too!). Timing is everything.

TTT: Books You Can Read in One Day

Some days, especially cozy wintery ones, I just want a hot drink, some treats, and a good book to read. These are the best lazy days, and even better when you can knock a book off your TBR in the process.     1 Between the World and Me: A great book discussing the racial… Continue reading TTT: Books You Can Read in One Day

The Hate U Give – Angie Thomas

I remember being on Facebook and seeing the story in the news sidebar. The death of Anton Sterling was still on my mind.

Happenings Vol. 3

Wrap Up Getting  back into the ‘flow of things’ is nice. I’m just crossing my fingers that this pace continues throughout March. This month was solid in both book and movie departments. Except for The Hate U Give (that review will drop tomorrow), my favorite book was Homegoing, a powerful epic that I hope will… Continue reading Happenings Vol. 3
