I felt like I needed to make a few things for my library to show our support before I could focus on my personal blog because it’s a more visible brand that probably influences more people in the community than I do – but I wanted to make sure I made a post for my blog as soon as I could. We can’t be silent. It’s important to educate ourselves and be understanding of other’s plights. If you want to learn more, go to: https://blacklivesmatter.com/ or https://www.naacpldf.org/ because both websites are full of resources, information, links, and will do a better job explaining things than I ever could.
I was inspired by some fantastic teen books that have come out since the beginning of this year and decided to post one recommendation per day for the rest of the month. I hope that these own voices novels will inspire you. (I have so many on my TBR right now!)
I wanted to post the graphics that I’ve made so far here on my blog – but as you can see I don’t have enough for the whole month so please share with me some fantastic books you’ve used to educate yourself, support the black community, or would fit with this and you really enjoyed. I would also love to know which books didn’t come out this year but you still feel need to be included.
(Yes, I know Dread Nation didn’t come out this year but I wanted to plug the series since the new book came out this year.)
Although they’re not books you can read per se, I also want to plug the following two ‘journals’… they’re in my cart right now and I’m just debating which one I should get.
Thank you so much for reading diversely and supporting all people.
