Book Haul | Atlanta Kickback Book Convention

I previously posted about a new Book Convention happening here in Atlanta called the Atlanta Kickback. It is a convention that celebrates black authors and black books. Here you can watch my post on the books that I got from the convention! I will include the author’s websites or links below if they have them. Until next time,

Kelly Moore Riverdale Unboxing!

I did it again…. I bought another Kelly Moore bag.
Hi my name is India and I have a problem with buying bags, purses, and backpacks.
I decided to buy this bag because it was on sale for their birthday, and it was just about half off, so I had to jump on it.
I will say that after using it the strap is too short. I don’t know how they make it longer in their pictures, but when I even extend the strap to the last hole it was too short for me. I’ve never had that problem. The purse hangs somewhere in my abdomen instead of down to my hip and that’s annoying to me because I kept hitting it with my elbow. I’m going to continue to try it out, but it is definitely for light carry and the minimum. Either a point and shoot or a mirrorless camera with a fixed lens.  Do you own any of their bags? Let me know what you think! Until next time,

Atlanta Kickback Book Convention Wrap Up!

This year I was able to attend the Atlanta Kickback, which is a type of book convention. I’ve titled it the “Atlanta Kickback Book Convention” because it is normally titled the “Atlanta Kickback”, which makes it sound like it is a cookout happening or a family reunion. The title doesn’t tell you what it actually is.

Anyway, enough of the rant of what confused me when I was looking for book conventions in Atlanta. The “Atlanta Kickback” was started by a group of friends who had their own type of book club, and called themselves 556 Book Chicks. They decided to start this book convention, which celebrates black authors and books. There were so many authors there selling their books and promoting themselves. It’s still really new so there are a lot of areas for growth. It was only their second year hosting this event, and they already had a great author turnout.

Here you can see my vlog and thoughts about the Atlanta Kickback while I was there!! Let me know what you think and if you’ll try and attend next year!! Until Next Time,

The Boyfriend Tag!

Today, I’m lucky enough to have spent 2 years with my boyfriend! He has to put up with a lot when it comes to me (and my mom) and he does it all in stride. He has taught me so much and we have grown so much together. We decided to do (read I made him do) The Boyfriend tag on my BookTube channel! You can check it out below!! Until next time,

BookTube-A-Thon 2017!

Hey everyone!! I’m participating in BookTube-A-Thon 2017!! This is an annual reading challenge that is hosted by Ariel Bissett as well as other BookTubers to make reading, video, twitter, and instagram challenges.

This year is my first year participating and I’m really excited to do it. I’ve had this blog for a long time now, and I’m just now really finding the community that is around books. If you have been following me on twitter you can see I have been reading books, but I have not been writing my reviews (don’t worry I haven’t been making videos either).

Here I’m going to post the BookTube-A-Thon intro video, as well as my TBR (To Be Read) video! Please join us in doing this and make sure to follow me on social media!!

I got some of my books on Book Depository as well as on Amazon Kindle. Some of them I just wanted in print though we all know I love my e-reader. I’ve got some unrelated posts coming, but I’m super pumped to get started on this!

Here’s my Book List!!
1. When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon – A person on the cover
2. The Raven Boys by Maggie Steifvater – Read a hyped book
3. Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas – Finish in one day
4. When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon – Someone very different from you
5. Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo – Read completely Outdoors
6. The Sun is Also a Star by Nicola Yoon – Read a book because of the cover
