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,

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
