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.
Wherein Michaela and Gretchen discuss a handfull of books that they feel are great books to bring to the BEACH or just generally read during those hot summer months.
LOOK. MICHAELA AND I MADE A VIDEO TOGETHER! We were tagged by the lovely Amanda Center to do this tag, literally at the moment when Michaela and I were searching for something to do as our first #bibliomansion video. Clearly, Amanda is tuned in to our thoughts. Check out this video for some great horror recommendations as well as a sneak peek into some upcoming Betwixt the Books and Bibliomancy for Beginners plans!
LOOK AT HOW CRAZY THIS IS: Michaela and I are actually TOGETHER for this review, talking about the graphic novel Nimona. This has been in the works for a while, and it’s the cutest thing ever worth waiting for. We tried out recording ourselves via skype for this one, mostly because Michaela forgot her camera, and it had some hilarious results. Perfect for this book in cuteness level, really!
I read this book for booktubeathon, as you probably already know. I genuinely thought I was going to dislike it. As it turns out, I really, really didn’t. I actually quite liked it. So much so that I’ve already bought (and am reading) the second book, so you can look forward to that review soon too! In the meantime though, here’s this first review!
One last video challenge for booktubeathon … a day late. This is a list of book recommendations based on the seven continents of the world. I tried to get to some places that a lot of books aren’t set, but some of these were also really challenging! I ask you guys for some help in some areas as well, so don’t hesitate to leave me some comments with your own suggestions!
LOOKIE HERE! I’m back with an actual review today, in video form. This includes a shout out to the lovely MercuryCalling booktube channel for convincing me to buy this book in the first place. I wasn’t disappointed! Though I had my issues with it, I’m really excited for Alwyn Hamilton as a writer and the rest of this series!
