Reading has electrified my life since I could hold a board book! As an adult, I’m genuinely excited to spend weekends roaming bookstores and libraries. Experience has taught me the beauty of living is the ability to embrace what makes you smile wider and breathe easier by noticing and pursuing all the little things. So, I did a thing in 2019 and started “The Little Things Book Club,” also known as “TLT,” because books and other people who love books make me happy!
This community is a home for sharing inspiration and stories. Books bring us together, but life’s little things keep us from growing apart. In my quest to intentionally support the diverse backgrounds and talents of women writers, TLT book club picks are usually written by women fiction authors.
Our July/August 2020 pick is I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings by Dr. Maya Angelou! We’re deviating from our usual fiction choices to honor a woman whose story and legacy can teach us so much in these present times as we do our individual part to promote social justice and restore humanity. It’s also reader’s choice month. That means you can grab something you’ve been meaning to read but haven’t been able to for whatever reason. I hope that the story you choose unveils a little thing to keep you going. Our next pick will be announced in August 2020. I invite you to subscribe to my blog for updates, and follow us on Facebook and Instagram!
Our May/June 2020 pick was With the Fire on High by Elizabeth Acevedo!
Our March/April 2020 pick was Such a Fun Age by Kiley Reid!
Our January/February 2020 pick was Girl, Woman, Other by Bernardine Evaristo!
2019 TLT Book Pick Recap
We read seven amazing books in our first year that walked us through the lives of fictional characters with very real stories about identity, self-love, family trauma, racial divides, conflict, romance, secrets, and much more. Add them to your list!
