As I’ve shared, I am taking the rest of May and the beginning of June off. I plan to be back on June 21st–see you then!

To keep up with what I am reading, check out my 2021 Goodreads Challenge page  or my read bookshelf on Goodreads.


I finished listening to Love is a Revolution by Renée Watson and loved it. There were so many great themes to think about in this book. I’ll be giving a full review with teaching tools this Thursday!

Home is Not a Country by Safia Elhillo is a stunning book in verse. I was captivated by the story and couldn’t put it down. I highly recommend this book and will be reviewing it in the upcoming weeks!



I just got my hands on Sisters of the Neversea by Cynthia Leitich Smith last night and started reading. It is a reinterpretation of the Peter Pan story. So far, I LOVE IT.

My oldest son and I are reading a story each night in Black Boy Joy, which is edited by Kwame Mbalia. We really look forward to reading it each night—the stories are very engaging!

  1. Ricki, all of the books you’ve been reading sound great! I’ve seen a lot of praise for Love is a Revolution lately. Thank you both so much for the great post and round-up!

  2. I finished Love is a Revolution last week too. I ended up adoring it even if I wasn’t so happy at first. I am hoping my local library will soon bring in Sisters of the Neversea.
