Electric Arches, Black Queer Hoe, Playing the Whore: The Work of Sex Work, InToriLex
Electric Arches by Eve L. Ewing- This is a awesome poetry collection I picked up about black girlhood which includes visual art as well as prose. I'm also a huge fan of Eve's Twitter.
 OUT NOW from Haymarket Books

Black Queer Hoe by Britteney Black Rose Kapri- Another great poetry collection that should be on you radar. It's a great collection that explores sexuality and Identity.
OUT NOW from Haymarket Books
Playing the Whore: The Work of Sex Work (Jacobin) by Melissa Gira Grant- This is a short non-fiction book that challenges how we look at the sex trade. I've read a few fiction books about children and teens involved in the sex trade, so this piqued my interest.

Her Body and Other Parties, What It Means When A Man Falls From the Sky, Don't Call Us Dead, InToriLex
I'm so happy I made time to go to the Boston Book Festival this weekend. I was able to attend a panel with some of my favorite author's from this year.  They discussed why awards are important and shared their experiences judging and being awarded. I'll list my gushing reviews for them below: 
Her Body and Other Parties by Carmen Maria Machado  
Don't Call Us Dead by Danez Smith- I haven't reviewed yet, but plan to, it's a unforgettable read, full of poetry and emotion. 

I took a week off to reset a few things in my life. I haven't been working out, reading or blogging and I definitely needed the break. Spending sometime not so worried about everything I had to do everyday, helped me remember why I'm committed to pursuing so many things in my life. I've been taking driving lessons which is a huge fear of mine I'm taking head on. I have bad driving anxiety and really struggle to feel confident so I plan to take as many lessons as I need. I'm excited to be back this week and am happy I received some great books recently. 


Thunderhead (Arc of a Scythe #2) by Neal Shusterman-This is a sequel to Scythe, I'm really enjoying exploring this fascinating world where immortality is achieved in a world controlled by the all knowing AI, the Thunderhead. This is a great series for fans of action packed, sci-fi, dystopias. 
Waiting for Eden by Elliot Ackerman- I'm listening to this on audio and really enjoying it. It's a quick 3 hour book about three lives, one of which is confined to a hospital bed, half alive after deploying to war.  

How did your reading go this week?
