2019 YA Releases with POC Main Characters

1. Love From A to Z by S.K. Ali [April 30th, 2019]

cover157053-medium

“A marvel: something you find amazing. Even ordinary-amazing. Like potatoes—because they make French fries happen. Like the perfect fries Adam and his mom used to make together.

An oddity: whatever gives you pause. Like the fact that there are hateful people in the world. Like Zayneb’s teacher, who won’t stop reminding the class how “bad” Muslims are.

But Zayneb, the only Muslim in class, isn’t bad. She’s angry.

When she gets suspended for confronting her teacher, and he begins investigating her activist friends, Zayneb heads to her aunt’s house in Doha, Qatar, for an early start to spring break.

Fueled by the guilt of getting her friends in trouble, she resolves to try out a newer, “nicer” version of herself in a place where no one knows her.

Then her path crosses with Adam’s.

Since he got diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in November, Adam’s stopped going to classes, intent, instead, on perfecting the making of things. Intent on keeping the memory of his mom alive for his little sister.

Adam’s also intent on keeping his diagnosis a secret from his grieving father.

Alone, Adam and Zayneb are playing roles for others, keeping their real thoughts locked away in their journals.

Until a marvel and an oddity occurs…

Marvel: Adam and Zayneb meeting.

Oddity: Adam and Zayneb meeting.”

5. Color Me In by Natasha Diaz [August 20th, 2019]

cover155739-medium

Debut YA author Natasha Díaz pulls from her personal experience to inform this powerful coming-of-age novel about the meaning of friendship, the joyful beginnings of romance, and the racism and religious intolerance that can both strain a family to the breaking point and strengthen its bonds.

Who is Nevaeh Levitz?

Growing up in an affluent suburb of New York City, sixteen-year-old Nevaeh Levitz never thought much about her biracial roots. When her Black mom and Jewish dad split up, she relocates to her mom’s family home in Harlem and is forced to confront her identity for the first time.

Nevaeh wants to get to know her extended family, but one of her cousins can’t stand that Nevaeh, who inadvertently passes as white, is too privileged, pampered, and selfish to relate to the injustices they face on a daily basis as African Americans. In the midst of attempting to blend their families, Nevaeh’s dad decides that she should have a belated bat mitzvah instead of a sweet sixteen, which guarantees social humiliation at her posh private school. Even with the push and pull of her two cultures, Nevaeh does what she’s always done when life gets complicated: she stays silent.

It’s only when Nevaeh stumbles upon a secret from her mom’s past, finds herself falling in love, and sees firsthand the prejudice her family faces that she begins to realize she has a voice. And she has choices. Will she continue to let circumstances dictate her path? Or will she find power in herself and decide once and for all who and where she is meant to be?”

But Chloe hits her first speed bump when her annoying neighbor Eli insists upon hitching a ride, threatening to tell Chloe’s mom if she leaves him and his smelly dog, Geezer, behind.

7. We Hunt the Flame by Hafsah Faizal [May 14th, 2019]

36492488.jpg

People lived because she killed.
People died because he lived.

Zafira is the Hunter, disguising herself as a man when she braves the cursed forest of the Arz to feed her people. Nasir is the Prince of Death, assassinating those foolish enough to defy his autocratic father, the king. If Zafira was exposed as a girl, all of her achievements would be rejected; if Nasir displayed his compassion, his father would punish him in the most brutal of ways.

Both are legends in the kingdom of Arawiya—but neither wants to be.

War is brewing, and the Arz sweeps closer with each passing day, engulfing the land in shadow. When Zafira embarks on a quest to uncover a lost artifact that can restore magic to her suffering world and stop the Arz, Nasir is sent by the king on a similar mission: retrieve the artifact and kill the Hunter. But an ancient evil stirs as their journey unfolds—and the prize they seek may pose a threat greater than either can imagine.

Set in a richly detailed world inspired by ancient Arabia, We Hunt the Flame is a gripping debut of discovery, conquering fear, and taking identity into your own hands.”

38739562

With her daughter to care for and her abuela to help support, high school senior Emoni Santiago has to make the tough decisions, and do what must be done. The one place she can let her responsibilities go is in the kitchen, where she adds a little something magical to everything she cooks, turning her food into straight-up goodness. Still, she knows she doesn’t have enough time for her school’s new culinary arts class, doesn’t have the money for the class’s trip to Spain — and shouldn’t still be dreaming of someday working in a real kitchen. But even with all the rules she has for her life — and all the rules everyone expects her to play by — once Emoni starts cooking, her only real choice is to let her talent break free.”

7 Novels Coming to the Big Screen

There’s been so much book to movie adaptation news recently that I couldn’t help but make a list of some that I’m incredibly excited for.

 

1. Moxie by Jennifer Matthieu

mathieu, moxie_cover sm.jpg

About the Movie: Moxie by Jennifer Matthieu was recently Paper Kite, a production company owned by both Amy Poehler and Brooke Posch. To get familiar with the production company, try watching Broad Girls on Hulu. It’s the best. Right now, the movie stands in the pre-production stage and it hasn’t been shared who is writing the screenplay. The release date is unknown.

To learn a little more about Moxie, here’s the book description:

“Vivian Carter is fed up. Fed up with her small-town Texas high school that thinks the football team can do no wrong. Fed up with sexist dress codes and hallway harassment. But most of all, Viv Carter is fed up with always following the rules.

Viv’s mom was a punk rock Riot Grrrl in the ’90s, so now Viv takes a page from her mother’s past and creates a feminist zine that she distributes anonymously to her classmates. She’s just blowing off steam, but other girls respond. Pretty soon Viv is forging friendships with other young women across the divides of cliques and popularity rankings, and she realizes that what she has started is nothing short of a girl revolution.”

 

2. On the Come Up By Angie Thomas

downloadAbout the Movie: As you might already know, The Hate U Give was released in 2018 and raised 34.9 million USD in the box office. On the Come Up by Angie Thomas was picked up Fox who also adapted the Hate U Give. George Tillman Jr. is directing On the Come Up but there’s obviously no set release date yet.

To learn a little more about On the Come Up, here’s a description:

“Sixteen-year-old Bri wants to be one of the greatest rappers of all time. Or at least make it out of her neighborhood one day. As the daughter of an underground rap legend who died before he hit big, Bri’s got big shoes to fill. But now that her mom has unexpectedly lost her job, food banks and shutoff notices are as much a part of Bri’s life as beats and rhymes. With bills piling up and homelessness staring her family down, Bri no longer just wants to make it—she has to make it.

On the Come Up is Angie Thomas’s homage to hip-hop, the art that sparked her passion for storytelling and continues to inspire her to this day. It is the story of fighting for your dreams, even as the odds are stacked against you; of the struggle to become who you are and not who everyone expects you to be; and of the desperate realities of poor and working-class black families”

3. Looking for Alaska by John Green

99561

About the Show: Looking for Alaska was picked up by Hulu to be adapted into a mini-series. The main characters including side characters have already been cast. John Green has even made a video about them and with them on their Youtube channel, the Vlog Brothers. I’ll link them here. Miles is set to be played by Charlie Plummer and Alaska to be played by Kristine Froseth. Looking for Alaska had been owned by Paramount but they were apparently terrible towards John Green so now it’s not being made into a movie. It’s now being done by Hulu and I couldn’t be more happier. As for a release date, there isn’t one yet.

To learn a little more about the book, here’s a description:

“Before. Miles “Pudge” Halter is done with his safe life at home. His whole life has been one big non-event, and his obsession with famous last words has only made him crave “the Great Perhaps” even more (Francois Rabelais, poet). He heads off to the sometimes crazy and anything-but-boring world of Culver Creek Boarding School, and his life becomes the opposite of safe. Because down the hall is Alaska Young. The gorgeous, clever, funny, sexy, self-destructive, screwed up, and utterly fascinating Alaska Young. She is an event unto herself. She pulls Pudge into her world, launches him into the Great Perhaps, and steals his heart. Then. . . .
After. Nothing is ever the same.”

4. Daisy Jones & The Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid

reid_9781524798628_jkt_all_r1.indd About the Show: Amazon has picked up Daisy Jones & the Six to be a limited series on their streaming service, Amazon Prime TV. It has plans to be a 13 episode series made by both Amazon studios and Reese Witherspoon’s Hello Sunshine banner. To get a feel of Reese Witherspoon’s production, watch Big Little Lies. As for the music, it’ll be made exclusively through Amazon Music. I can’t wait to hear Daisy Jones & the Six! This was recently announced so there’s no casting yet or release date.

Here’s a little bit more about the book:

“Everyone knows Daisy Jones & The Six, but nobody knows the reason behind their split at the absolute height of their popularity . . . until now.

Daisy is a girl coming of age in L.A. in the late sixties, sneaking into clubs on the Sunset Strip, sleeping with rock stars, and dreaming of singing at the Whisky a Go Go. The sex and drugs are thrilling, but it’s the rock and roll she loves most. By the time she’s twenty, her voice is getting noticed, and she has the kind of heedless beauty that makes people do crazy things.

Also getting noticed is The Six, a band led by the brooding Billy Dunne. On the eve of their first tour, his girlfriend Camila finds out she’s pregnant, and with the pressure of impending fatherhood and fame, Billy goes a little wild on the road.

Daisy and Billy cross paths when a producer realizes that the key to supercharged success is to put the two together. What happens next will become the stuff of legend.

The making of that legend is chronicled in this riveting and unforgettable novel, written as an oral history of one of the biggest bands of the seventies. Taylor Jenkins Reid is a talented writer who takes her work to a new level with Daisy Jones & The Six, brilliantly capturing a place and time in an utterly distinctive voice.”

 

5. Shadow & Bone by Leigh Bardugo

10194157

About the Show: The Grisha trilogy is coming to Netflix! This was announced earlier this year. The two books that were mentioned specifically are both Shadow and Bone and Six of Crows. I’m not sure how they will connect but they plan to have a series set in the “Grisha-verse.” As far as I’m concerned, the series will be around eight episodes. It’s being produced by Eric Heisserer, Shawn Levy, and Pouya Shahbazian. There’s no release date or no set cast yet.

Here’s the book description: 

Surrounded by enemies, the once-great nation of Ravka has been torn in two by the Shadow Fold, a swath of near impenetrable darkness crawling with monsters who feast on human flesh. Now its fate may rest on the shoulders of one lonely refugee.

Alina Starkov has never been good at anything. But when her regiment is attacked on the Fold and her best friend is brutally injured, Alina reveals a dormant power that saves his life—a power that could be the key to setting her war-ravaged country free. Wrenched from everything she knows, Alina is whisked away to the royal court to be trained as a member of the Grisha, the magical elite led by the mysterious Darkling.

Yet nothing in this lavish world is what it seems. With darkness looming and an entire kingdom depending on her untamed power, Alina will have to confront the secrets of the Grisha . . . and the secrets of her heart.”

 

6. All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven

18460392

About the Movie: I’ve been following this movie announcement for so long. I read this book whenever it had come out in 2014 and I was so nervous when I heard the movie was going to be released. It’s currently in post-production but has a cast, director, etc. It’s being produced by Echo Lake Entertainment and FilmNation entertainment but is to be distributed by Netflix. Elle Fanning was cast to play the main character back in 2014 but recently, Justice Smith was cast to play Theodore Finch. Jennifer is co-writing the screenplay with Liz Hannah. There isn’t a set release date but I’m guessing sometime this year or 2020?

Here’s a little more about the book:The Fault in Our Stars meets Eleanor and Park in this exhilarating and heart-wrenching love story about a girl who learns to live from a boy who intends to die.
 
Theodore Finch is fascinated by death, and he constantly thinks of ways he might kill himself. But each time, something good, no matter how small, stops him.

Violet Markey lives for the future, counting the days until graduation, when she can escape her Indiana town and her aching grief in the wake of her sister’s recent death.

When Finch and Violet meet on the ledge of the bell tower at school, it’s unclear who saves whom. And when they pair up on a project to discover the “natural wonders” of their state, both Finch and Violet make more important discoveries: It’s only with Violet that Finch can be himself—a weird, funny, live-out-loud guy who’s not such a freak after all. And it’s only with Finch that Violet can forget to count away the days and start living them. But as Violet’s world grows, Finch’s begins to shrink.

This is an intense, gripping novel perfect for fans of Jay Asher, Rainbow Rowell, John Green, Gayle Forman, and Jenny Downham from a talented new voice in YA, Jennifer Niven.”

 

7. Turtles All the Way Down by John Green

35504431.jpg

About the Movie: Fox announced they own the rights to Turtles in December of last year. This is John Green’s most recent book release and apparently, his most personal. I read this book and loved it dearly so I can’t wait to see how it’s done in movie format. Hannah Marks, the youngest studio director in history, is directing this film. She’s 25. This is very early in the process so there is no set cast or release date!

If you haven’t read Turtles, here’s the description: “It all begins with a fugitive billionaire and the promise of a cash reward. Turtles All the Way Down is about lifelong friendship, the intimacy of an unexpected reunion, Star Wars fan fiction, and tuatara. But at its heart is Aza Holmes, a young woman navigating daily existence within the ever-tightening spiral of her own thoughts.

In his long-awaited return, John Green shares Aza’s story with shattering, unflinching clarity.”

 

 

Now, movies are always uncertain so some of these projects could fall through. I have faith in them, though! I also want to note that there’s obviously so many more adaptations coming out but I’m most excited about these ones. I might end up making another post to share the rest.

 

Have you read any of these books? Are you more excited or nervous about the movie adaptations?

House Plant Tour | April 2019

As you might know, I have a little bit of a indoor plant addiction. It started off with just buying myself a Peperomia after my childhood dog has passed as a way to commemorate him. I know, it’s a little bit weird but that’s what I felt like doing that day. This Peperomia was so cute but unfortunately, I barely knew how to tend to the plant so eventually it got root rot and died. What a sad story, I know. But, it’s okay!

I learned more about house plants and decided to get more Peperomias. I picked Peperomias because they’re non-toxic to animals of which I have many. I have gone through some plants and gotten more. I once had a fern that died quickly due to God knows what, a Calathea that died due to not enough humidity and the water I used to water it with, a palm that fell to it’s death due to my cats who loved it dearly… Yet, I still buy plants and try my hardest to keep them alive. The winter was hard on some of my plants (RIP my Calathea) so they’re not looking their best at the moment but they’re all healthy and growing which is good.

I just wanted to add a little disclaimer: I am not perfect when it comes to taking care of plants. I don’t know a lot about plants but I do know enough to keep the ones I currently have alive. I’m not an expert!

Without further ado, let’s get into some plants!

AfterlightImage 2

1. Air Plant/Sky Plant

Scientific Name: Tillandsia Ionantha

Right here, we have my air plant! These plants are sometimes called Sky plants but the scientific name is Tillandsia Ionantha. They’re native to Central America and Mexico so they love the sun and don’t require much water. As you can see, they don’t have much of a root system and don’t require soil to grow. They thrive on humidity and prefer to be lightly sprayed with water instead of drowned in it.

My mom got me this little plant for my birthday and it’s so easy to take care of. I might say even easier than a succulent. 🙂

 

Processed with VSCO with a6 preset 2. Baby Rubber Plants

Scientific Name: Peperomia Obtusifolia Variegata

The Peperomia (sometimes called baby rubber plants) were the first kind of house plants I got. They’re non-toxic to animals so you often see them on lists of great indoor plants you can have with dogs and cats. They love the sun and prefer to be dried out before being watered again. These plants are prone to get root rot because they hate to end up sitting in water. They’re commonly found in Southern and Central America but are native to places like Florida, Mexico, and the Caribbean. This specific one that I have is the Peperomia Obtusifolia!

I actually have two of these but they both look a little rough. The first one was also a gift

Processed with VSCO with a6 preset

to me and seemed to be in bad shape whenever I had bought it. The second one had to be trimmed down during the winter due to dying leaves?? I’m not sure what went on with it because it’s doing great now and has new leaves coming in.

3. Jelly Peperomia

Scientific Name: Peperomia Clusiifolia

This is my favorite house plant. It has pink edges as you can kind of see. It’s easier to tell in the second picture but they’re the cutest. It’s never given me problems, either. It’s consistently growing as you can see. I recently re-potted it due to it outgrowing the other pot. If you can see the dark spot to the right of the plant, it’s actually a burn from being on the window. Most of my plants actually sit on an Ikea plant stand I’ll link later on in this post. I don’t remember why I had moved it to the window that day but it had burned a leaf. It’s doing great, still. I only put them in the window to take these pictures. 🙂

During the making of this post, my plants got fungus gnat infestations from a new ZZ plant I recently bought. They’re recovering now and are fungus gnat free but I’m going to have to take new pictures later of my bigger peperomia because it suffered the most. I also lost my second fern again. RIP Fern. I’ll never buy another one because God only knows how to keep them alive and healthy. As for now, let’s continue with my last plant!

 

IMG_5885.JPG

4. Snake Plant

Scientific Name: Sansevieria Trifasciata

I’m pretty sure this is a pretty standard snake plant you can find almost anywhere. I bought it with those two leaves cut like that, unfortunately. It’s doing well for a snake plant. There hasn’t been any new growth lately but it’s fine. I also have no idea how to keep this plant from looking lopsided. I’ve repotted since and it’s still sideways. The soil is tight enough but who knows. This also had gnats recently but it has survived! I love it. Also, yes, that’s my dying fern in the corner. It’s long gone. RIP Fern.

March 2019 Wrap Up

Ah, I’m finally reading again! I actually read enough to make a wrap up for this month. I don’t know about you but March felt like forever. It must’ve been because I read six books this month! I know it may not seem like a lot to some, but I’ve been going through a serious slump so this is enough for me. Luckily, I enjoyed them! Let’s talk about each one individually, shall we?

So, the first book I read this month was:

1. Becoming by Michelle Obama

I listened to this on audiobook and loved it. The audiobook is quite long but it was worth it. I’d listen to it while cleaning, driving to work, going to bed, etc. I eventually switched from audiobook to the physical copy near the end because it was so enticing and interesting that I just had to read it faster. I truly loved learning about her life and I wrote a mini-review about it. I’ll link it here!

Edition I read: both Audiobook and Physical copy

Date Started and Finished: March 2nd to March 5th

Rating: 5/5 stars ★★★★★ (How can I give the best first lady less than 5 stars?)

My Review | Goodreads Progress

2. Saga vol. 9 by Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples

I finally got around to reading the latest edition of Saga and honestly, I’m shocked. I can’t believe there’s a year long hiatus until the next one. They really ended it like that, eh? I have a review for this as well! Don’t worry, there’s no spoilers 🙂

Edition I read: Physical Copy

Date Started and Finished: March 9th

Rating: 5/5 stars ★★★★★

3. Again, But Better by Christine Riccio

I was lucky enough to request this arc on Netgalley and receive it the next day. I read most of this book in one sitting because it was so fun to read. I have a review going up a week before the release date so stay tuned for that! Unfortunately, I won’t share too much of my thoughts until then. But, for now, here’s my rating!

Edition I read: ARC e-copy that was kindly sent to me by the publisher through Netgalley 🙂

Date Started and Finished: March 4th to March 9th

Rating: 4/5 stars ★★★★

My review will be up on April 30th!| Goodreads Progress

4. What Makes Girls Sick and Tired by Lucile de Pesloüan

I received an e-arc of this from the publisher through NetGalley! I enjoyed this read but it was underwhelming. I think a lot more could’ve been added to it. To know the rest of my thoughts, I have a review here.

Edition I read: ARC e-copy that was kindly sent to me by the publisher through Netgalley 🙂

Date Started and Finished: March 13th

Rating: 3/5 stars ★★★

5. City of Ghosts by Victoria Schwab

I was feeling in the mood for a middle grade novel and decided to finally pick up Victoria’s middle grade book. I ended up reading it all in one night and thoroughly enjoyed it. It’s also really cute for a ghost story lol. I don’t review middle grade because I’m an adult and I don’t read this critically. But, here’s my rating!

Edition I read: Library E-Book

Date Started and Finished: March 16th

Rating: 4/5 stars ★★★★

Goodreads Progress

6. Daisy Jones & The Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid

AH, I loved this book. I haven’t written a mini review for it yet but I’m going to. I enjoyed this book so much and I wasn’t expecting to. I don’t know why exactly but it was everything I love to read about. It’s set in the 70s, follows a rock band with two strong female band members and it’s told in a unique interview format. It’s a brilliant book. I’m so mad at myself for not picking up this ARC copy at work.

Edition I read: Hardcover

Date Started and Finished: March 18th to March 25th

Rating: 4.5/5 stars ★★★★★

Goodreads Progress

 

Have you read any of these books? If you have, let me know how you felt about them! I’d love to chat about these books. I’m so happy with my reading this month! It’s so much more than usual. Hopefully, April’s reading will be just as success. If only I can find a book as wonderful as Daisy Jones!
