I keep trying to do Top Ten Tuesdays and manage not to finish them before Tuesday rolls around. It’s Christmas today (and I had a little time on Sunday to prewrite), so I get to participate this week. Yay! Given that we didn’t put up a tree this year, and most of our Christmas revolves around hanging out and not working, I thought I’d make a list of books that I’d like to add to my collection at some point.
- On the Come Up by Angie Thomas — After The Hate U Give, I will read anything that Thomas writes. There were so many points of entry for me in that story.
- Watch Us Rise by Renée Watson and Ellen Hagen — Similar to my rationale for Angie Thomas’s book, I’ve been able to see my childhood in Watson’s books. I’m here for it.
- Lu (Track #4) by Jason Reynolds — I’ve read this one already and I can’t speak more highly of this middle grade series I don’t usually like change in narrator in a season, but I didn’t care at all with this series.
- Miles Morales Spiderman by Jason Reynolds — I heard the movie was good.
- Long Way Down by Jason Reynolds — there might be a trend here, I don’t know if you noticed.
- Children of Virtue & Vengeance (Legacy of Orïsha #2) by Tomi Adeyemi (no cover yet) — Have you read CBB? It was my favorite book of 2018, so naturally the sequel is a must.
- Black Enough: Stories of Being Young and Black in America edited by Ibi Zoboi — I think enough is said in the title.
- If It Makes You Happy by Claire Kann — I loved her first book, so I’m excited for the second.
- The Revolution of Birdie Randolph by Brandy Colbert — Because Little & Lion.
- The Everlasting Rose (The Belles #2) by Dhonielle Clayton — Another great start in 2018 that I want to continue.
