Top Ten Tuesday: Freebie: The Last Ten Books I Acquired
Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

Check out these new books!
I’ve actually read more than half of these already thanks to a lot of bingeing this year 😅 But that means you know I mean it when I hype them!
As always, you can check under the cut for more on each
Sistersong by Lucy Holland is a retelling of a British folk ballad and stars an ancient magical Britain. Apparently this book is not just about sisterhood but also gender identity and destiny. It’s also marketed for fans of Madeline Miller so, of course, I’ve got high hopes from that alone.
House of Hollow by Krystal Sutherland is a truly unsettling horror novel I’ve already had the chance to read. If you liked Wilder Girls or Sawkill Girls you’ll probably enjoy this book of sisterhood, paranormal secrets, and aggressive nature. Following 3 sisters who disappeared for days when they were childen, only to return different and with unexplainabl abilities, and the search for the oldest when she disappears yet again.
Zoe Rosenthal is Not Lawful Good by Nancy Werlin is a cute, fandom filled coming of age story. Zoe prides herself on being logical and organized- just like her boyfriend- which is why she’s so desperate to hide her silly obsession with a scifi show. I’ve already read this one, and I absolutely love the fandom friendships, the light hearted silliness of it all, and getting to see Zoe come into her own.
The Light of the Midnight Stars by Rena Rossner I’m super excited for because I loved her novel The Sisters of Winterwood. Like that one, this book is historical Jewish fantasy, and I’m certain it’s going to be just as lush and well written. Her stories feel like hearing a folk tale at the foot of a fireplace, and I think everyone needs that coziness and beauty in their life.
Kate in Waiting by Beck Albertalli was my first real experience with the author and now I think I get what everyone’s been talking about. This is a story about  friendship and independence on a backdrop of a shared crush, and as, well, silly as the summary sounds this book feels so real. The romance is also pretty cute!
Lycanthropy and Other Chronic Illnesses by Kristen O’Neal I’ve been waiting to finally come out since last year! If you like internet friendships, chronic illness rep, and werewolves, boy oh boy do I have your new favorite book right here. If lycanthropy treated as a genuine medical condition and an excellent portrayal of modern friendship isn’t enough for you, there’s also a tumblr-based discord (I kid you not) that shows up to rick roll you.
Enjoy these books- I know I did! What other books are you guys looking forward to?

Hey! Completely random but what is something that never fails to make you happy? And no, you are not allowed to say Jemma Redgrave ;)
Ooh you’re a mean one, Anon!!!  😂 😂 
A good book. 
Well, good storytelling in general, but especially a good book (mainly because I consume more storytelling in book form than any other. With audio dramas a close second in terms of storytelling media consumption). 
The most recent really satisfying book I read was the Advanced Reader Copy of Lucy Holland’s Sistersong. It’s a retelling of the folk ballad ‘The Two Sisters’ and it is easily the most compelling book I’ve read this year. It features the story of the three children of King Cador, one of whom is trans and it deals with his transition in a very powerful and moving manner. Honestly, it made me weep buckets. 
Tumblr media
It’ll be published by PanMacmillan next April. 
The other really compelling storytelling that I enjoyed this year was Julian Simpson’s three series of podcasts with the umbrella title of The Lovecraft Investigations, starting with The Case of Charles Dexter Ward. They’re available to listen to or download worldwide via the BBC. Simpson is a writer who has been producing immensely gripping radio plays for several years and I cannot recommend his work highly enough.

Juneteenth is Upon Us - Support HBCUs & Black Women-Focused Organizations!
Juneteenth is nearly upon us and WU encourages all of our fellow non-Black alums to truly think about what the day means to our Black siblings. Further, it is important for allies and accomplices to keep the perspective that, while some may feel it important that Juneteenth be recognized as a national holiday, there is the very real possibility that the day could become commercialized or whitewashed in a way that is not beneficial to the Black community. And that while the day may be formally recognized, voting rights in states where there are significant black populations are being stripped away, abortion rights are being threatened, police brutality is still a thing and there is an ongoing discussion (war) on Critical Race Theory in US public schools and institutions. 
While you contemplate that, WU also encourages you to financially support, if possible, organizations focused on Black women as well as Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs). Donating to Wellesley is great but HBCUs in particular often have much smaller endowments and resource pools than PWIs (and sometimes are deprived of money that is rightfully owed to them). We have put together a list of organizations and HBCUs for you to consider supporting on this Juneteenth: 
Black Mamas Bailout
Black Mamas Matter Alliance
SisterSong Women of Color Reproductive Justice Collective
Brown Girls Do Ballet
The Loveland Foundation 
Black Women’s Health Imperative 
National Black Women’s Justice Institute
Black Girls Code 
Black Alliance for Just Immigration (BAJI)
Southerners on New Ground (SONG) 
Beacon Hill Black Alliance
The Foundation for Black Women’s Wellness
The Black Women’s Agenda 
Black Women’s Blueprint
Black Girls Smile
Marsha P. Johnson Institute 
The HBCU Foundation 
The United Negro College Fund
Alabama A&M (Alabama) 
Alcorn State University (Mississippi)
Bennett College (women’s college; North Carolina)
Bowie State University (Maryland)
Clark Atlanta University (Georgia)
Dillard University (Louisiana) 
Fisk University (Tennessee) 
Florida A&M (Florida) 
Grambling State University (Louisiana) 
Hampton University (Virginia) 
Howard University (Washington, DC) 
Jackson State University (Mississippi) 
Kentucky State University (Kentucky) 
Langston University (Oklahoma) 
Lincoln University (Pennsylvania) 
Meharry Medical College (Tennessee) 
Mississippi Valley State University (Mississippi) 
Morgan State University (Maryland) 
Morehouse College (Georgia) 
Norfolk State University (Virginia) 
North Carolina A&T State University (North Carolina)

Spelman College (Georgia)
Tennessee State University (Tennessee) 
Tuskegee University (Alabama) 
Virginia State University (Virginia) 
West Virginia State University (West Virginia) 
Xavier University of Louisiana (Louisiana) 
If museums and/or cultural organizations are more of interest, see this list of Black/African American institutions we put together last year.

In Spite of Ourselves [a Bellarke, Modern AU with a fluff to mild angst back to fluff arc | multi-chapter - 1/3 | rated G]
prompted through @t100fic-for-blm | donation made to The SisterSong Women of Color Reproductive Justice Collective, which is a national activist organization dedicated to reproductive justice for women of color
Running is the only thing that Clarke knows how to do. So she runs away from family and friends, living in random states until the faceless blurs start to have meaning and then she’s on the move again. Her latest one is Arkadia, Oregon and she assumes it’ll be like all of the rest. What she hadn’t expected was the quiet history teacher from a local coffeeshop.
Clarke is overwhelmed by the welcome and Bellamy’s unwavering faith in her as they become closer friends. He has a life here, surrounded by loved ones, and she can’t see how she could be a part of it. But before she can help it, Clarke starts to entertain the idea of what it means to call a place home.
