Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...
What is your favorite summer reading setup?

But alas, #HotReadsSummer has begun! The sweet iced tea (my summer sub in for hot cocoa) can be served and the beach chair set out for catching Vitamin D and taking in knowledge at the same time. While I do not enjoy battling tiger mosquitos, there is just something refreshing about sitting outside and reading a book in peace (with repellant and sun block of course!) What is your favorite summer reading setup?

Reading Reflections

I seem to have developed two patterns in my reading goals. One, I have inevitably finished three of the five books for both May and June that were on my original reading list. While subbing out two books each time in a mood reader shift. lol! Second, I find that I frequently balance nonfiction against fiction. Which I think I prefer, because sometimes I need a breather after coming up for air from a novel and vice versa. For me nonfiction is for daytime reading and fiction is for the evening. What patterns have you seen in your own reading?

July Reading Anticipation…

I am currently halfway through reading Blackout by Dhonielle Clayton, Tiffany D. Jackson, Nic Stone, Angie Thomas, Ashley Woodfolk and Nicola Yoon. It is a tribute to young Black love. I am also excited to continue reading Clint Smith’s How the Word is Passed. I love his writing style and his book about slavery in America has me feeling like I was on the journey with him. The man knows how to handle language!
