Welcome to my book blog! Where I try not embarrass myself by reviewing, reading and writing books.
On May 17th all my other readings will stop and move out of the way for this book.
NICK OF TIME BY TIM DOWNS......yesssss I'm so excited to read it. This is the 6th book in the bug man series, it's a really awesome series. I've loved them from day one. But the ending of the 5th book Ends Of The Earth was horrible but I guess I have adjusted to it. I really hope this is the end of the series, but who knows? Not I. But I thought I tell you that.
Book haul time! I got some from the dollar tree and some from the thrift store.
We will start from left to right.
Selena: Coma La Flor by Joe Nick Patoski I found this at my local thrift store for $2.00 I've always wanted a book about Selena, love her music, and the movie with Jennifer Lopez.
Same Difference by Derek Kirk Kim I was very surprised to find this at the Dollar Tree, but I've found tons of First Second graphic novels there. It's hardcover, has this really cool plastic dust jacket which has the fishes on it. Also, I saw BookRatMisty haul it on youtube.
It's book 7 and 12 of the Gossip Girls series. Nobody Does It Better & I Will Always Love You by Cecily Von Ziegesar (how do you even say that name) I found these two books at the Dollar Tree which I think is a weird series to find. I really want to collect all the series before reading the first. (I put the stickers on the spine to know which order they go in. There are tons of series with tons of …
In a small Georgia town where racial tensions run high and lives are at stake, can one lawyer stand up for justice against the tide of prejudice on every side?
Adisa Johnson, a young African-American attorney, is living her dream of practicing law with a prestigious firm in downtown Atlanta. Then a split-second mistake changes the course of her career.
Left with no other options, Adisa returns to her hometown where a few days earlier a white police officer shot an unarmed black teen who is now lying comatose in the hospital.
Adisa is itching to jump into the fight as a special prosecutor, but feels pulled to do what she considers unthinkable—defend the officer.
As the court case unfolds, everyone in the small community must confront their own prejudices. Caught in the middle, Adisa also tries to chart her way along a path complicated by her budding relationship with a charismatic young preacher who leads the local movement demanding the police officer answer for his crime.
Arriving at his fifth school in as many years, diplomat’s son Osei Kokote knows he needs an ally if he is to survive his first day – so he’s lucky to hit it off with Dee, the most popular girl in school. But one student can’t stand to witness this budding relationship: Ian decides to destroy the friendship between the black boy and the golden girl. By the end of the day, the school and its key players – teachers and pupils alike – will never be the same again.
The tragedy of Othello is transposed to a 1970s suburban Washington schoolyard, where kids fall in and out of love with each other before lunchtime, and practice a casual racism picked up from their parents and teachers. Peeking over the shoulders of four 11 year olds – Osei, Dee, Ian, and his reluctant ‘girlfriend’ Mimi – Tracy Chevalier's powerful drama of friends torn apart by jealousy, bullying and betrayal will leave you reeling.
Othello is something I've always wanted to read. Now I really regret not reading i…
