Today is a very special day for Michelle Meadows. It…
Another awesome week of reading down! It’s finally starting to feel like spring and I am ready for some reading outside. Where do you like to read?
I finished two FANTASTIC books, one YA and one Middle Grade and am currently reading more awesome books. Keep reading for my thoughts.
All three books I finished this week we’re memorable and powerful, each in their own way.
- Starfish by Lisa Fipps: Thank you NetGalley and Nancy Paulsen books for sharing an eARC with me in exchange for an honest review. I DEVOURED this book. It is about a young girl who is constantly put down by everyone around her about her weight. It is told in verse and Lisa used poetry to really bring the strong emotions to the front. My heart hurt, and still hurts, for Ellie and I strongly recommend this book for all readers. This book will be release March 9, 2021
- Nubia by LL McKinney and Robyn Smith: Thank you DC Comics for sharing an ARC of Nubia with me in exchange for an honest review. This comic, published on February 9, 2021, was amazing and I did not put it down until it was over. I loved Nubia-she is a powerhouse and I enjoyed learning her story. I also liked the combination of feminism, equality, racism, and toxic masculinity were all included. This is a book for more mature audiences, I would say 8th grade and up due to the language and suggestive content. I want more Nubia!
- We Are the Ashes, We Are the Fire by Joy McCullough: Thank you to NetGalley and Dutton Books for Young Readers for sharing this eARC with me in exchange for an honest review. This is also a mature read-more for high school age students and above as there is violence and some content that could be troubling for young readers. This is an IMPORTANT read too-because it addresses family issues, assault, and harassment. This book was also written in verse style and again, the poetry made this a much more emotional read.
How was your reading week?
