What’s WriteOnCon?

You don’t know?? Haha joking. It’s only the coolest online (FREE!) writers conference. To learn more you can read my posts from last year’s…

Book Gush: POINTE by Brandy Colbert

Today I’m gushing about how much I loved POINTE by @BrandyColbert & what it meant to me.

Theo is better now.

She’s eating again, dating guys who are almost appropriate, and well on her way to becoming an elite ballet dancer. But when her oldest friend, Donovan, returns home after spending four long years with his kidnapper, Theo starts reliving memories about his abduction—and his abductor.

For those who are wondering this is the iStock photo model they used for Syd on the original covers of Proxy. Not to say anyone else’s imagining of Syd is wrong (this isn’t mine, although I LOVE it). I thought I’d just share it for those of you who are curious. Of course, some of the fancasts I’ve seen (hello, Kylin Rhambo??) are great too!

Khylin Rhambo? Perfect. Now that would be a great movie.

#WeNeedDiverseBooks summer reading series! If You Liked The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, try Summer of the Mariposas by Guadalupe Garcia McCall because both books are about the importance and magic of sisterhood and friendship.

We like to say that Summer of the Mariposas is like Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants meets Weekend at Bernie’s by way of The Odyssey. You’ll love it!

I absolutely love these summer recs & I hope they continue throughout the year. What a great way to get people, myself included, to read books with diverse characters & themes.
