Grown | book review

By this point I think I’ve made it clear that Tiffany D. Jackson is one of my favorite authors and I will honestly read anything she writes. Grown, an absolutely heartbreaking book, was no different and I’m so glad I finally read it this month.

Please be sure to read the trigger warnings for this book found here before reading this review because I will be mentioning some of that content.

Keep reading for all my thoughts and a full review!

Books to Read for AAPI Heritage Month

If you didn’t know, May is AAPI (Asian-American and Pacific Islander) Heritage month, which is something I didn’t realize until recently. I’m a first generation Indian-American so this is something I’m really happy to participate in and spread more awareness of books centered around Asian voices and characters.

Diversity in literature is so important for readers everywhere and can introduce you to new cultures, identities, struggles, and more. It’s a great way to learn more about the world and about people whose lives may be different than yours. I think it’s important to highlight these books and encourage everyone to branch out regardless of what they usually read and try something new.

I will be recommending books centered around AAPI characters and/or written by AAPI authors. I’ve read all the books on this list of recommendations and at the end will list books I personally have not read yet but are on my TBR and sounds amazing if you’re interested in reading them πŸ’™

Books to Read in the Summer | seasonal recommendations

Depending on where you are in the world, we’re getting one day closer to summer! Finally. It’s been a rough semester of online university and I’m happy to finally have a chance to relax a little and enjoy some good weather πŸ₯°

If you’re anything like me, you’re in the mood for different types of books depending on the season. For example, in the winter you might prefer fantasy/sci-fi whereas in summer it’s more of a contemporary/romance vibe. Hopefully that is not just a ‘me thing’ and some of you can relate lol.

Here are some recommendations for books to read over the summer that perfectly fit the vibes! Loooots of YA contemporary on this list because that genre is literally MADE for sunny days 🌞 But I will also add more diverse genres in case that’s more to your liking.
