[#partner @prhinternational] The Water Dancer by Ta-Nehisi Coates. What. A. Story. This book chronicles the life of a man named Hiram Walker. Born into bondage he is gifted with an incredible memory, which makes it rather peculiar that he cannot remember his mother after she gets sold away – by his father, no less. Hiram however, has had another gift bestowed upon him, one that several years later saves him from drowning in a river and marks the start of Hiram’s journey as part of the underground. Enlisting in this war between the slaves and enslaves, Hiram learns what it means to be free, his resolve to rescue the family he left behind never waning. The Water Dancer is a magnificent debut novel, focussing on topics rarely describe with such finesse in literature: the humanity of slaves and the atrocity that is family separation. It explores a layer of slavery I had never spent time processing – what it truly means to be seen and treated as commodity. I was fascinated by so many characters and relationships in this book. From that of Hiram and his father, to those of the people from the Underground. I have so much more to say about this book, but I’ll do so in a video review soon! Thanks so much @prhinternational for gifting me this copy! . . . #thewaterdancer #tanahesicoates #oprahsbookclub #oprahbookclub #books #book #blackliterature #bookstagram #boekstagram #boeken #boek #literature #readwithus

#partner @prhinternational Thank you very much to @prhinternational for gifting me a copy of Frankly in Love by David Yoon and also for having me on this blog tour! Frankly in Love is the debut novel of David Yoon and follows a senior in high school called Frank Li. Frank is Korean-American, with parents who have one rule when it comes to dating: only a Korean girl. This makes life particularly hard for Frank since he’s now dating Brit, who is white. His friend Joy however has a similar problem and so the come up with a plan: fake date each other and thus gain their parents approval and their own freedom. It sounds like a full proof idea – until it doesn’t lmao. XD I have been loving this book so far! Frank and his friend Q are so wonderfully awkward, I can relate to them on so many levels lol. I’m a quarter’s way through, but one thing I already appreciate a lot is how racism is explored here. There is a part in which Frank questions his parents when they start making racist remarks about Chinese people and it unfolds into a conversation where you get to see more of their mindset. Besides that, the book is just really fun to read and I always catch myself laughing every few pages. There is still so much more I have to say but that will come with a full review! :D . . . #books #book #franklyinlove #davidyoon #reading #literature #boek #boeken #ya #youngadult #asianliterature
