Every Body Looking by Candice Iloh | Book Review

Every Body Looking by Candice Iloh was a finalist for the National Book Award, yet I still feel like not enough people that I follow are talking about it. In fact, I did a search on twitter and only one person that I follow has tweeted about it. What a shame, as Candice Iloh’s debut […]

You Bring The Distant Near by Mitali Perkins | Book Review

You Bring The Distant Near by Mitali Perkins 100% deserves all the praise. IT IS SO GOOD. Also, it deserves all kinds of attention.
