⁣ QOTD: Are there any new releases you're excited to get your hands on today?⁣ ⁣ ⁣ Happy new release Tuesday everyone! Today, I want to say a special Happy Book Birthday to Tiffany D. Jackson's latest novel, Let Me Hear a Rhyme! This was one of my most anticipated releases of the year, and I was not disappointed. Let Me Hear A Rhyme is a stunning, gritty and pulsating novel that keeps you turning the page. The book follows three grieving teenagers who, after the murder of their friend/brother, set out to find out who killed him and show the world his music. Set in the late 90’s in Brooklyn, Jackson throws the reader into a world of hip hop, the daily struggles of teens and black families and the the injustices they face, while also touching on relevant issues like police brutality and gun violence. Although Let Me Hear a Rhyme deals with tough topics surrounding grief and lives lost way too soon, Jackson does an excellent job of balancing the heaviness with moments of levity. The characters are well built up and each one has a unique voice and story to tell. Yet, they all culminate into a very important thread in Steph's story.⁣ ⁣ Jackson has a knack for telling important stories that stick with you and are hard to shake, and this one is no different. This is definitely a story that made me think about the realities of the world that we live in, especially when it comes to losing youth to gun violence. Steph's story will always hold a place in my heart. If you love 90s hip hop music, stories of friendship, and grief, then I definitely recommend this one for sure! ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #Allthebooksmay19 – Reminds me of a song⁣ ⁣ #Mayinbooks19 – Books with all the feels⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #bookish #bookstagram #booknerd #booksofinsta #yalit #yacontemporary #youngadultbooks #yareads #letmeheararhyme #tiffanydjackson #booksofinstagram #igreads #instaread #bookishgirl #booknerdigans #booklovers #bibliophile #yabooks #yabookstagram #alwaysreading #yalovin #booknerdigans #booksbooksbooks #booksofinstagram #newbooktuesday #newbookalert #booksharks ⁣

Hello, Book Hoarders! What’s your favorite hip-hop song of all time? Mine might be a somewhat controversial answer, but it’s Doo Wop (That Thing) by Lauryh Hill, which is a mix of hip-hop, R&B, and doo-wop.

Let Me Hear a Rhyme by Tiffany D. Jackson MY OPINION: This book is about three kids (Quadir, Jarrell, and Jasmine) in the late 90s whose friend/brother Steph was shot and killed and they decide to promote his unreleased music in order to spread his voice and keep his influence alive. There was so much going on besides the music, however, as the kids are simultaneously trying to get to the bottom of who killed Steph without making trouble for themselves. A lot of details and plot points overlapped and intersected by the end in order to figure out this mystery, which was really compelling. The story reminded me a lot of On the Come Up by Angie Thomas, what with the whole rap and music scene and how much it means to people when they feel like they have a voice. The characters felt really authentic and genuine, especially in their relationships to one another. I really enjoyed how true they all were to their roots and how much they loved Brooklyn. The events of the book take place shortly after the deaths of Biggie Smalls and Tupac, which have a huge influence on the story and characters. I found it really interesting that the author chose to set the story in the 90s and I think she did a really great job of capturing that time period, especially in Brooklyn. Ronnie’s character kind of confused me because she was kind of a terrible girlfriend to Quadir but also a badass female who protected Jasmine, whom she owed absolutely nothing. I just couldn’t tell if we were supposed to sympathize with her but by the end, I felt like I did. Quadir’s character also threw me for a loop in a couple instances, as it didn’t feel like his thoughts and actions lined up some of the time. I really enjoyed this book and definitely recommend it to anyone who has read and enjoyed On the Come Up or anyone who just likes contemporaries focused on music. RATING: 📚📚📚📚

Q:What is your favorite Hip-hop song of all time? No Diggity is definitely my favorite! I can't help but dance when it comes on. ~ Thank you @epicreads for partnering with me for this post! I read Monday's Not Coming last year by Tiffany D Jackson and loved it. It was well written, suspenseful and emotional. Now with her new book Let Me Hear A Rhyme, we follow a group of young adults trying to turn a friend into a rap star. The thing is, the friend they are trying to make famous was murdered. Trying to show her music to the world but also keep a secret. It isn't easy. ~ Summary: Biggie Smalls was right. Things done changed.

16. @bookish_nel, we ALSO couldn’t help but speed-read LMHAR

View this post on Instagram

{#gifted📖 @epicreads} 🎤 I sat down this morning to read a little of LET ME HEAR A RHYME, and ended up reading 100 pages in one sitting. . Honestly, I should have expected that though. I read ALLEGEDLY 2 years ago, and MONDAY’S NOT COMING 1 year ago, and it was the same thing. Tiffany D. Jackson knows how to write such a suspenseful plot, and her teen characters seem so real, it feels like you know them IRL. . LMHAR is about three teens in 1997-8 Brooklyn who are determined to make their murdered friend a rap star by pretending he’s still alive, while trying to solve the mystery of his murder. There are some great lyrics written by Malik-16, and I bet the audiobook is going to be fantastic. . The author asked folks on this book tour to talk about some of our favorite hip hop artists and songs, but I have a whole favorite radio station. There’s a nonprofit radio station in my hometown that plays local rappers and musicians and puts on community events. They even had an educational program about how to caucus (this is Iowa, after all!). My favorite feeling is arriving into town and knowing that when I turn the dial, the sounds of my hometown will be there 🎶 . Do you love the classics like Biggie? Is there a thriving local music station in your city? . . . . . . . . . . . #bookstagram #bookblogger #cozyview #hygge #hyggeblogger #bookstagrammer #bookishview #bibliophile #cozyreads #booksandbeans #morningreads #letmeheararhyme #readingoutside #backyardreads #letmeheararhymetour #storygramtours #epicreads #tiffanydjackson #booksandcoffee #booksbooksbooks

View this post on Instagram

QOTD: Do you prefer hardcover or paperback books? Happy Wednesday! Today, I want to discuss what type of cover other readers prefer. Are you more of a hardcover book fan or do you love paperbacks more? Personally, I love hardcover books more than paperbacks. I love hoe sturdy they are , which makes them easier to hold. Also since the are more sturdy, I can't mess up the cover as easily as paperback books. I always find myself bending the covers of my paperback books, which makes me so sad. However I finally have a book sleeve, so I'm hoping that will help me take better care of my paperback books when I carry them around. Which type of book do you prefer, hardcover or paperback? On a side note, I just want to point out how much I love the cover of Tiffany D. Jackson's upcoming book, Let Me Hear a Rhyme. It's such a bold and vibrant cover, and I just can't stop staring at it. I still can't believe I was able to get my hands on the arc this past weekend. * * #fangirlsbookishmarch – Books + Plants #Allthebooksmarch19 – Hardcover or Paperback #Marchbookstagram19 – Favorite Love Interest #books #bookish #bookstagram #booknerdigans #yalit #yacontemporary #yabookstagram #yalovin #letmeheararhyme #thecruelprince #yabooks #booksofinsta #igreads #instaread #bookishcommunity #booksofinstagram #bookishgirl #fangirl #alwaysreading #bookstagramcommunity

🎵 LET ME HEAR A RHYME by Tiffany D. Jackson ——————————————————————————— I am so incredibly excited to be in possession of an ARC for @writeinbk’s new novel LET ME HEAR A RHYME! I’ve been so excited to pick up something new from her after reading Monday’s Not Coming last year. I absolutely LOVED that novel which is why I’ve been so eager to read more from her as soon as possible! ——————————————————————————— #books #book #fiction #yalovin #bookstagram #igreads #blog #blogger #letmeheararhyme #tiffanydjackson #bookblog #bookworm #bookaholic #bookishcanadians
