June 2020 TBR

This month I am dedicating my TBR’s to black writers and creators to support the Black Lives Matter and George Floyd movement in my own small way and to bring awareness to these amazing books. I have a mixture of history, Marvel and fantasy which I am super excited to read and reread. The one I think I am most excited to read is Shuri which is the story of Black Panther’s sister written by Nic Stone. Let me know in the comments what you are reading this month in the comments. I am attaching a link below to where you can donate or share about the Black Lives Matter and George Floyd movement.
