Give Me Five Friday: Five Books With Jewish Characters

I'm trying to make an effort to read more diverse books this summer, because while I love to harp on diversity in the media I'm ashamed to say I haven't actually read many diverse books. So to start with I think it would be good to identify different groups I either don't know a lot… Continue reading Give Me Five Friday: Five Books With Jewish Characters

It isn't often that I do a book mail type of thing, but this summer is pregnant with promise when it comes to my reading list.

TBR Pile: May

When it comes to reading lists, I'm the worst. I'm eternally distracted.

Sunday Suggestions: Diverse Children’s Books

"A children's story that can only be enjoyed by children is not a good children's story in the slightest."-C.S. Lewis I'm with Lewis on this one. Children's novels have an honest way of capturing the imagination and exposing readers to new experiences and cultures quickly. They're also a nice pick-me-up for after you've read Bearheart and… Continue reading Sunday Suggestions: Diverse Children’s Books

2017 Releases Watchlist

I kept telling myself I wouldn't make this post. I don't buy new releases typically, money has to go to bills, food, and school. I'm also on a book buying ban for the rest of the foreseeable future (over 300 titles on my shelf that I haven't even touched. I'm actually garbage). However, too many… Continue reading 2017 Releases Watchlist
