Hey bookdragons! A little bit ago, I read Legendborn and fell in love with it! Maybe it was not perfect, and had some too YA-ish for me elements, but beyond that, it was so incredible in terms of magic, and in the unique perspective the author offers with a Black character, that it blew my mind! I was so excited for it that I even did a reading vlog 😉 But here, I’m doing something a bit shorter, just to get you curious about it and hopefully make you add it to your TBR 😛

June Mini-Reviews: #BlackVoices special!

Hey guys!

I don’t often post non-ARCs reviews on the blog (mostly for lack of time!), but I really wanted to talk more about all the amazing books by black authors I have read this month, as for me it’s a way to support black voices! So I decided to do these mini-reviews of the titles I have read in June (+ an early July one), and I hope it will make you curious and give all these authors a try!
Also, I would of course suggest you to check reviews of these books by Black reviewers! You can for example go look at Bowtiesandbooks, literaryxqueen or Chanelletime !
