Weekly Wrap-Up #6

I’m continuing my weekly wrap-ups with short reviews of the books I’ve read since last Saturday, which were all amazing.

1. Resisters by Lauren Sharkey 💙⭐️🏳️‍🌈

An inspiring, educational and insightful at fifty young activists who are campaigning right now to change huge issues from climate change to the period tax. An empowering and useful tool to learn more about activism occurring right now. Four stars.

2. Watch Us Rise by Renée Watson and Ellen Hagan ⭐️💙

I utterly adored this.

Jasmine and Chelsea had such strong, memorable voices and I loved all the mixed media used throughout, especially all the poems and blog posts, which were inspiring and educational. Powerful and thought-provoking, though it could do with more intersectionality and discussion of the various hashtags instead of just using them as punchy slogans. Four stars.

3. Heir of Fire by Sarah J Maas 💙

I’m slowly making my way through the TOG series and it’s just getting better and better with each book. I’m loving seeing Celanea grow, develop and change into a better character and the exploration of magic and politics deepen with each book. Four stars.

Have you read any good books this week?
