First Reads Friday: An Interview with Amy Trueblood + Giveaway

The month of March is a HUGE month for YA releases and one I’m particularly excited about is Amy Trueblood’s NOTHING BUT SKY.  This historical fiction contains doesn’t come out until the end of the month, but we have a preview and interview to get you primed for release!  There are so many elements to this novel I’m excited about: from a daredevil girl who works against the social mores of the historical time period (WWI!), a boy who challenges her every step of the way and that she maybe wants to kiss and heart-stopping action. Find out more about NOTHING BUT SKY, the author, Amy Trueblood, and what inspired this story of perseverance, daredevil stunts and one final chance to prove yourself the world and to your harshest critic–yourself.

Black History Month: Book Recommendations from Rebecca Barrow

It’s February 28th and it’s the FINAL DAY of our Black History Month series of diverse author book recommendations that inspired their work!  I’m already thinking of expanding this series next year and making it a year-long series since Black Excellence shouldn’t be marginalized to 28 days. I have loved all the authors and been inspired by their recommendations, which is why today is definitely bittersweet.
Today we welcome Rebecca Barrow, author of 2017’s You Don’t Know Me But I Know You and the upcoming This Is What It Feels Like (her cover reveal appeared on Pop! Goes the Reader earlier this month!).  A book about adoption, pregnancy, choice, love and family, YDKMBIKY is a contemporary YA that breaks down tropes and explores these themes lovingly and with achingly beautiful prose. Find out what books inspired this poignant YA contemporary.

The movie looks amazing and I am thrilled to see what Ava DuVernay has done with one of my childhood favorites!  For that and many other reasons, I was thrilled we were picked to be part of the blog tour and am here to share my favorite quotes with you.

Black History Month: Book Recommendations from Ashley Woodfolk

Welcome to the second to last installment of our Black History Month series! This month has absolutely flown by and we are sad to see it winding down. However, we’re only sad to see it wind down in number of posts because we’ve got two AMAZING authors lined up for today and next Wednesday, so let’s get started with today’s post!
Happy First Reads Friday!  Today we feature debut author Ashley Woodfolk whose The Beauty That Remains publishes in less than two weeks! The reason I’m SO excited for this book is that Ashely incorporates one of my favorite things — music.  Her story of grief is told from 3 points of view and it seems music plays the roll that will tie the characters together and help them through their grief.  I’m expecting this to be heartbreaking in it’s grief, and, hopefully, offer some hope for our teens. Let’s find out more about The Beauty that Remains, Ashley and books that inspired her to write this story.

Black History Month: Book Recommendations from Tiffany D. Jackson

Happy Tiffany D. Jackson Day!  We’re celebrating Tiffany and her books in two different ways on the blog and in person today.

Most importantly, it’s Book Club Day–the best day of the month!  Tonight, we will be discussing Tiffany D. Jackson’s 2017 novel, Allegedly, in person at our Tampa Book Club with some of our favorites. Allegedly is a study in unreliable narrators and one of my favorite books of 2017. I highly recommend you pick it up. It will leave you reeling for days after you finish it.

We are also celebrating Tiffany on the blog. Today she is giving us her book recommendations for Black History Month. In addition, we’re going to delve into her upcoming novel, Monday’s Not Coming. This book sounds like a full-blown mystery and if Allegedly is any indicator, we are in for a heck of a ride! Let’s hop on over to find out more about Monday and Tiffany’s Black History Month book recommendations!
