I have recently uploaded my video on my thoughts about The Mothers by Brit Bennett. You can see my blog post here. Please watch the video, and let me know what you thought! I would really like to have a discussion about what everyone thought about her debut novel!
You know, I never knew how big book subscription boxes were, until I was out of school. Honestly now that I’m done with school I have learned so much has been happening in the Bookish community, and I’m so excited that it is evolving and growing! One of the subscription boxes that I am apart of is by Noir Reads.
Noir Reads is a box that features topic on black, African, and African-American cultures, history, and political issues, and also features black authors as well. I started receiving the box in February, it was a gift from my mom after she saw it in an article, but April is my first video unboxing! I will link the video below, but I’ll also list what was in the box.
Contents of April Box: Theme, “Black to the Future”
Binti by Nnedi Okorafor
Kindredby Octavia E. Butler, a graphic novel adaptation
“Black to the Future” sticker
Bookmark with a quote by Octavia Butler
Sankofa post card project: This project is to write a postcard to people who have been imprisoned, fighting for the rights of black individuals.
Those were some of the main things from this months box! Check out my video below!
Hey everyone!! I’ve decided to start a YouTube channel, or more commonly known as a BookTube channel. I know I tried this a few years ago, but I’m trying again. How does the saying go? If at first you don’t succeed… stop for awhile and then try it again? I don’t think that’s how it goes, but that’s what I’m saying for now. Please subscribe to my channel because not everything I put on there will be put on here, and vice versa. Thank you so much for hanging out with me! Until next time,
