Congrats to Promise for being selected as an Indie Next Pick for March!!! This historical novel is based upon family accounts of the devastating Tupelo, Mississippi tornado of 1936. • • "The official death toll was more than 200 residents, with around 1000 injuries, many of them serious. Growing up in Tupelo, the author heard all kinds of wild stories about the storm: flying children , dehorned cows, people found in treetops. Her own grandmother discovered a baby in one of her crepe myrtle bushes. What no one knew at the time was that members of the black community were omitted from the official casualty figures. The African-American dead and injured simply weren't counted, even though most of them lived on a high ridge that took the brunt of the storm. Their deaths were erased from history. So the real story of the Tupelo tornado is the deeper devastation of racial injustice, which extended even beyond the grave. • • In Promise, Minrose has excavated that untold story of the uncounted by focusing on two missing babies in accounts related from the perspectives of an African-American great-grandmother and a white teenager, whose families are irrevocably bound together." • • Thank you so much to @williammorrowbooks for sending me this copy, I can not wait to read it. Promise will be in a bookstore near you on February 27. #southernfiction #historicalfiction #alwaysreading #tbr #readinglist #readmorebooks #proseandpalate

This book was a bit of a roller coaster for me. At times I loved it, at other times I was disturbed by it, but it was always original and unlike anything I’ve read before. In the end I’m giving it ⭐️⭐️⭐️☄️, although I’m still confused about how I feel. It was dark and gritty, but also fantastical with moments of whimsy. Mostly it was just depressing af. When I explained the plot to my boyfriend he said, “So love is death,” and he pretty much nailed it. I’m not one to shy away from dark or difficult reads, this one just didn’t speak to me in a meaningful way. . . On a lighter note, it’s the last warm day before another cold front rolls in, so I’m about to hop on my bike and cruise to the bookstore. Happy Sunday, friends. 🚲📚 . . . . . . 👾 . . #bookstagram #bookish #booksandbikes #bookworm #booknerdigans #bibliophile #readingwomenchallenge #reading100women #alwaysreading #booksbooksbooks #bookreview #goodreads

This weekend has been so busy but so lovely. We’ve had sunshine and signs of spring, I’ve been working and we managed to grab a bite out to eat as a family this afternoon. Kids are back to school tomorrow and I’ll finally get a little peace and quiet to jump in on the book for this month’s book club! #socklesssunday

@kidlitexchange #partner Bringing Me Back by @authorbethvrabel was so, so good. 🐻 🐻 🐻 Seriously guys, I really didn’t expect it to be this good. Bringing Me Back tells the story of Noah, a seventh grader who has a whole world full of struggles. The biggest of them? That his mother was thrown in prison after a DUI. He also feels responsible for the cancellation of his school’s football season, and he has become a bit of a pariah among his classmates. 😬😬😬 For me, this story really sang because Vrabel was able to make Noah a totally sympathetic character. The poor kid. He could have been a total jerk because of all the things that he’s dealing with, and yet, he wasn’t at all. And everyone expects him to be, so Noah’s being mistreated right and left, even by those who should be his champions and protectors. 🐻🐻🐻 Luckily for Noah, he’s found a wonderful protector in his mother’s boyfriend, who is his guardian while his mother is in jail. The only problem is that Noah is unsure of how long Jeff will stick around once his mother is released. 😬😬😬 Vrabel touches on topics of bullying, childhood uncertainty, socioeconomic inequality, and the importance of finding friends who see the good in the world. I loved this book. The only criticism that I have is this: sometimes it was difficult to remember that Noah and his classmates were seventh graders. Sometimes, their behaviors made them seem much, much older. Still, Bringing Me Back is absolutely worth a read. #kidlit #kidsbooks #middlegrade #chapterbooks
