Springtime in BC! Although some days it feels like we skipped right past spring and into summer - highs of 30C are ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ˜“

Still loving all the #nnediokorafor reads but, um. Akata Warrior just straight up has too many spiders. ๐Ÿ˜ฑ I know they're there for mythological purposes but ugh. โ˜  This second book heads more into teen territory too, so ignore that recommendation I made on the first one for younger readers. Unless they're cool with dating and icky stuff like kissing ๐Ÿ˜‚

Found this in a local drugstore. What. Even. ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ˜‚ Like: no. Just no. Canadian *gaslighting* boyfriend maybe. If you're not up on Canadian politics, our prettiest prime minister is busily selling us out to the oil corporations as we speak. Dump his ass! ๐Ÿ˜ก (This has been a mildly #bookish PSA. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜“) #comedybooks #gagbooks #wtf #dontbuyit #bookstagram
So I should have shared this last week for #teacherappreciationweek but wow, things got crazy, between book launch stuff and freelancing and . . . 
Anyways, back to the point. ๐Ÿ™„

When I was in the second grade, I had a teacher who was a writer. Never made it big (as far as I can tell), I think he just had a few small press or maybe even indie titles out. But he wrote a book (I think maybe every year?) with all the kids in the class in it. It was silly and fun and, as you can see, had lovely hand-coloured art ๐Ÿ˜… but he went above and beyond to put that together for us, and as a result, at the age of seven I knew that real people wrote books. ๐Ÿ–‹๐Ÿ“š He wasn't the teacher that made me want to become a writer (that came later), but he normalized it, led by example.

Teachers, parents, family, grown ups who take an interest in kids, read to them, read with them, give them books and make them books and keep a straight face and say encouraging things when they try to write books, it all matters.

Everyone doesn't have to become a writer. But we can all be readers. Change the world with books, y'all. ๐Ÿ“š๐ŸŽ‰

So Akata Witch had WAY too many spiders for me ๐Ÿ˜ฑโ˜  but other than that it was great. Just FYI if you have younglings reading the MG aisle, Weave A Circle Round and Akata Witch are both good MG/YA crossovers, but Akata Warrior and the series as a whole looks to be shaping up more like the later Harry Potter books where there's teens dating and it's more solidly YA-oriented. Nothing too explicit, just might require some explaining if your MG reader is on the younger side of the scale. #akatawarrior #nnediokorafor #weaveacircleround #karimaaren #nigerianfantasy #canadianfantasy #readcanadian #canadianauthor #middlegradecrossover #kidfantasy #bookstagram #bookaddiction #kaiespace

Best line ch. 50: He won't say it, won't tell me I'm not enough as I am, but his silence makes me afraid.

๐ŸŽ‰Weave A Circle Round was SO GOOD you guys~๐ŸŽ‰ Excellent SFF with time travel and a mythological twist that really does seem like a spiritual successor to #awrinkleintime ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ’– it hits that middle school demographic where it's great for #middlegrade readers and YA alike. Bonus points for #Canadianauthor #karimaaren ๐Ÿ“š๐Ÿ‘โœจ #readcanadian #canadareads #MGFantasy #bookstagram #booklove #booksandcats #kaiespace
Hooray for #bookmail ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰ The Zoo by #christopherwilson adds a bizarre twist to #historicalfiction as seen through a child's eyes during Stalin's last days in Russia -- love the quirky retro-distressed cover design! #bookstagram #ARC #retrocovers #bookworm #kaiespace
GUYS! One chapter left!! After chapter 50 I have a special announcement, plus I'll stop bugging you all with this quote series ๐Ÿ˜…
.
Also: thanks to those of you who nominated in Kindle Scout๐Ÿ’– . . . Um, and they actually cancelled the whole program on the last day of my campaign. ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ™„ so, hey, if you nominated in the hopes of getting a free copy when it came out, message me and I'll make sure you're added to the eARC list. ๐Ÿ˜…

Best line ch. 49: I thought I could control my responses, find a way to persuade even myself that I don't want what they offer.

If you haven't read this, you need to drop everything and run it to get a copy. Akata Witch is incredible. Think: girl Harry Potter in Nigeria. Great fantasy adventure that feels super fresh and original. The voice is clear and easy to read, the world building is super cool, the magic system is totally new (money literally rains on you when you expand your knowledge and villains abuse knowledge for power๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ’–) and it combines the best parts of slowly discovering and exploring a secret/hidden magical world at the edges of the everyday with a school story and a fight against evil. Prepare for a #nnediokorafor onslaught -- I'm running out to get everything she's ever written and will #bookstagram the results. #akatawitch #nigerianfantasy #africanfantasy #yafantasy #booklove #kaiespace

Best line ch. 48: it's a strange blending, to see the Mara pull Ravel's memories and fantasies out to use against me.
