“She didn't see the thorns sticking out of her sweet actions. Not like I did."⁠ ❤️⁠ A new book on my TBR for this month is MONDAY'S NOT COMING by @writeinbk. It's a YA mystery that explores how a young black girl can go missing without anyone in power really questioning it and it has fantastic reviews on Goodreads.⁠ ❤️⁠ Please help out with the BLM protests going on right now by visiting the link in my bio (to sign petitions, donate, etc). You can also find UK resources in my story highlights.⁠ ❤️⁠ #bookstagram #books #booklover #bookworm #bookaddict #igreads #bibliophile #bookstagramfeature #bookishfeatures #mondaysnotcoming #tiffanydjackson #supportblackauthors

"All of us who were told we were nothing will never stop trying to be everything."⁠ ✨⁠ I recently read THE SPACE BETWEEN WORLDS by Micaiah Johnson and loved it. Using the multiverse theory, the author insightfully explores race, class, poverty, and identity and questions how circumstances can shape our lives. Published in the UK this August, I'd definitely recommend this complex sci-fi debut. Who has this one on their wishlist?⁠ ✨⁠ Thank you to @hodderscape / @readeatretreat for my complimentary proof copy.⁠ ✨⁠ Please help out with the BLM protests going on right now by visiting the link in my bio (to sign petitions, donate, etc).

“I was not born with an opinion of the world but it clearly seemed that the world had an opinion of people like me.” ⁠ 💙⁠ My current non-fiction read is NATIVES by @akalamusic and the writing style already has me engaged. I just finished HOW TO BE AN ANTIRACIST by @ibramxk which was an insightful and probing exploration of racism. It's so important that we educate ourselves and non-fiction books are one way of doing that.⁠ 💙⁠ Please help out with the BLM demonstrations going on right now by visiting the link in my bio (to sign petitions, donate, etc).

“Because the thing about sharp corners is, the right turns can bring you back home.”⁠ 💕⁠ On my TBR for this month is PRIDE by @ibizoboi, which I got in a past @owlcrate box. I'm a huge fan of PRIDE AND PREJUDICE so I'm eager to read this retelling. Who's read this or has it on their TBR pile?⁠ 💕⁠ Please help out with the BLM demonstrations going on right now by visiting the link in my bio (to sign petitions, donate, etc).

"The thing about practising magic in Friedman, Georgia, was that you never knew who was going to hate you for it."⁠ ✨⁠ Last month's @litjoycrate included THE FASCINATORS by @andrew_eliopulos, which I'm excited to read as it's pitched as a cross between Maggie Stiefvater and Becky Albertalli. I love Litjoy because of their monthly trading cards and the artwork on the reverse of the dust jackets. Which book boxes do you subscribe to?⁠ ✨⁠ Please help out with the BLM demonstrations going on right now by visiting the link in my bio (to sign petitions, donate, etc).

A big thank you to @zuntold_books for my complimentary proof copy of THE GAME WEAVERS by Rebecca Zahabi. Due to be released this October in the UK, you can read the synopsis here:⁠ 💙⁠ "Seo is Twine’s youth champion.⁠ .⁠ We are in a darker Britain and the national sport is not football but Twine, a game where weavers craft creatures from their fingertips to wage battle against others in vast arenas, watched by thousands.⁠ .⁠ But we are living in intolerant times and Seo harbours a secret. When he is outed as gay by the media, Seo cannot use his magic to save him.⁠ .⁠ With the help of his brother Minjun and Jack, the man he can’t quite decide if he loves or not, Seo has to fight to get his life back on track whilst facing the biggest match of his career."⁠ 💙⁠ #bookstagram #books #booklover #bookworm #bookaddict #igreads #bibliophile #bookstagramfeature #bookishfeatures #gameweavers #thegameweavers #rebeccazahabi #zuntold

I don't usually post on Sundays but I had to show off this stunning A4 print by @zolwia which I recently purchased featuring an image from her upcoming graphic novel WHAT WE DON'T TALK ABOUT (August 2020).⁠ 💐⁠ I've also preordered WHAT WE DON'T TALK ABOUT, which examines "contemporary issues of race, bigotry and the difficulties that interracial couples face". Although I, unfortunately, missed out on the signed bookplate 😢.⁠ 💐⁠ You can purchase both items from @averyhillpublishing.⁠ 💐⁠ #bookstagram #books #booklover #bookworm #bookaddict #igreads #bibliophile #bookstagramfeature #bookishfeatures #whatwedonttalkabout #CharlotKristensen #graphicnovel #supportblackartists
