For episode two of this new season, we’re keeping the OwnVoices theme with this one! I’ve wanted to read this since the second it came out, but grad school is hard guys. I figured it fit the theme perfectly and this way I’d make everyone read it! Great idea, past me.
One of the best books I’ve read for school this year so far. If you haven’t read this yet, you need to. This dual narrative about the white and African-American experience with police brutality is so right now and necessary.
Today I review a great book about the layers and intersectionalities of race, socioeconomics, love and friendship.
It’s a new season of Bibliomancy for Beginners, and we’re starting with an arc of #ownvoices titles. This one is ownvoices for an asexual main character, and also sounded really interesting in plot. After reading it, one of those things is still true!
The front half of this is spoiler free! I warn you when it isn’t. That would be the moment that I start ranting. Please chat with me in the comments! I’m really just struggling about this book. You know I love me some SJM, but I’ve never been a Chaol fan and then … that ending!
Michaela and I picked this one out for a PopSugar challenge for a book popular the year we were born, and really thought we’d like it. We didn’t! We were surprised! And sad! Find out why…
I wanted this to be so good. I really did. But then it just … wasn’t. I ended up giving it 2 stars and 1 really impassioned review because I thought it had so much potential and then it never lived up to it.
