What new summer releases are you getting excited about? 📚 I can’t wait for more of you to be able to read Brandy Colbert’s upcoming novel. 📚 Birdie has always been a good daughter. She works hard in school, she's responsible. She listens to her parents even when it's hard like when she had to give up soccer to focus on her classes and college prep. 📚 But it's hard to balance being a good daughter with dating Booker–the new boy in her life. Birdie's parents would never approve of Booker with his bad reputation and his juvenile record. Rather than upset her parents Birdie does what seems like the best thing for everyone: she decides to keep Booker a secret for as long as possible. 📚 Then there's her estranged aunt Carlene who is back in Chicago, and Birdie's life, after years of struggling with substance abuse. Birdie barely remembers her aunt but she's eager to reconnect now–especially when Carlene seems willing to listen to Birdie in a way her mother hasn't for years. As Birdie grows closer to Carlene and to Booker, the secrets mount. When Birdie finds out that she isn't the only one who's been keeping secrets  everything she thought she knew about her family will be thrown into question in The Revolution of Birdie Randolph. 📚 Come for the swoony romance, stay for the authentic intersectional identities, complex relationships, and memorable characters. This one hits shelves on August 20 so now is the perfect time to preorder it or request it be stocked at your local library or bookstore! 📚 #instabooks #currentlyreading #amreading #instareads #lovereading #bookworm #bookblogging #bookblogger #bookstagrammer #bibliophile #booklove #bookphotography #instabook #reading #reader #booktography #bookstagram #beautifulbooks #booksofinstagram #goodreads #bookaholic #bookish #bookishfeature #bookstafeatures #bookstagramfeature #readersofinstagram #unitedbookstagram #therevolutionofbirdierandolph #brandycolbert #summerreading

How My Week Went:

Sometimes I don’t sleep much so this has been a pretty long week. I have a ton of BIG WORK THINGS happening in the second half of July and Mercury is Retrograde and my office is host to a weird assortment of bugs so I’m kind of over summer at this point.

What I Read:

I read Kiss Number 8 by Colleen AF Venable and illustrated by Ellen T. Crenshaw. I think it had some interesting things to say but I also might have not liked it. I’m still processing. My feelings were similarly mixed for There Will Come a Darkness by Katy Rose Pool which started stronger than it finished. I enjoyed it and think I’m on board for book two but, again, still processing.
