New titles to consider

 Forgot about this blog for a bit, so here we are sharing again

This book is a smashup of art and poetry that totally intertwines the two into one amazing piece of art.  I was blown away when I read it, and have since been showing it to anyone who will stand still for 5 minutes....and I am buying myself a copy.  The poem and the art are all centered on the Covid Pandemic; the trapped "can't breathe" feeling of quarantine--the worry for family and for the world---all from the perspective of one African American boy.  You can tell this is a work of love from both contributors, Jason Reynolds and Jason Griffin.  Stunning.  Go.  Read it.  Now.

If you haven't checked out this horror series, you are missing out.  It is up to vol. 4, and I devoured book 3&4 recently.  This is a horror series, so it's violent (monsters killing children and all); but if you enjoy reading about monster hunters and secret societies, you will enjoy this.  Not for the faint of heart due to the violence.

That's all for now, but we shall do better & keep up.

Tell us what you're reading!
