  1. I guess I'd better read American Street. I started it and wasn't sure I liked it so I set it aside. I love THE HATE YOU GIVE. My TTT Books I am grateful for

  2. I read 3 of these and liked them very much. In fact, I loved Genie Lo, and am eagerly awaiting the next Brooklyn Brujas book. Other #OwnVoices books I really enjoyed were The Authentics, When Dimple Met Rishi, Wild Beauty, and I Believe in the Thing Called Love.
