Happy Thursday my booklovin’ sistas and Happy New Month!
And with a new month comes new reads of course!!!
Last Friday the ‘This Black Girl Reads’ crew met up for our second book club meetup to discuss Homegoing by Yaa Ghasi and the night was EVERYTHING!
We pulled apart and dissected each character, and discussed every theme you could think of. And although not all women were feeling the book, I realized that I loved it more than ever before.
The quote that stuck with me this time around was said in Yaw’s chapter.
“We believe the one who has the power. He is the one who gets to write the story. So when you study history, you must always ask yourself, Whose story am I missing? Whose voice was suppressed so that this voice could come forth?”
Ain’t that the truth tho?! Gurl, WOW! It’s still giving me the chills.
* For all of you non-local participants that are reading along with us we will have a live webinar stream if you want to join in, just email me for the details.
So last month Spring appeared and with it, my reading game leveled up. Gurl something magical happened and I ended up finishing 12 books last month! I read twelve freaking books in March!!!
Speaking of books I read, I can’t wait to read some books that are dropping in April. Here are a few books coming out this month that I can’t wait to dig into… The ones that I bolded I received a pre-release copy and there will be a review on the blog and Goodreads.
