Hey everyone. No book review this week but I wanted to share some books I picked up earlier today!
This morning I hit up Oblong Books & Music, a book store near my hometown to pick up two books I ordered online. One you might remember from my list of must reads for January, Concrete Rose by Angie Thomas.
The other is called I Hate Men.
I’ll be honest, the title was what did it for me.
I do these online orders because I like the idea of being in and out of the store, but it’s damn near impossible for me to walk out with more books than I expected. This time, I picked up three extra books, all I’ve been eying for a pretty long time so I guess that kinda made it worth it.
Here’s a bit more about the extra three I bought. Click the pictures for a full description.
My friend first told me about bell hooks years ago, but I’ve yet to give her books a chance. I’m trying to get into Black feminist theory and since V-day is kinda coming up, a book about love sounds like a good way to get introduced to her work.
This book was on my Amazon wishlist since the summer but I’m glad I bought it at a local bookseller instead. I desperately need help with how to eat so I hope I get some good info from this.
I forgot how I learned about this book, but, I’m a sucker for a book that encourages me to write in it and get creative. Can’t wait to get started with this one.
Hopefully I’ll get back to posting reviews soon, but in the meantime, I’m gonna try to find ways to update this blog until I have time to finish a book again.
Until next time!
