Nothing makes me more emotional than a surprise. I’ve cried happy tears all week! Allow me to share my #bookmail. This haul is a combination of random acts of kindness:

📚 Black Fortunes: The Story of the First Six African Americans Who Escaped Slavery and Became Millionaires by Shomari Wills (#secretbookishvalentine gifted by @thetwinsmama8 ) Plus: White Barn Lavender Rose candle & Gummies! *This title is my “Black Love” pick for the #ReadSoulLit photo challenge!*

📚 We Should All Be Feminists by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie (Galentine’s gift by @melanatedreader )

So Long a Letter by Mariama Bâ (Galentine’s gift by @bookswithmeg_ )

📚 For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide / When the Rainbow Is Enuf by Ntozake Shange (Secret Valentine gift by @sbrivs.reads )

📚 Akata Witch by Nnedi Okorafor (Secret Valentine gift by @sbrivs.reads )

📚 Notes from a Black Woman’s Diary: Selected Works of Kathleen Collins by Kathleen Collins (Secret Valentine gift by @sbrivs.reads ) Plus: the punny bookmark!

📚 The Black God’s Drums by P. Djèlí Clark (Gift from Mom! Pictured in my stories!)

📚 & who knows what else could still come today!

Thank you, everyone! A few weeks ago, when I encouraged other bookstagrammers to share their wishlist in their links, I didn’t imagine such a response. I certainly didn’t expect as many gifts in return. Gifting is my love language, and so I enjoyed sending surprise bookish gifts to those unsuspecting booklovers. I appreciate everyone who participated in these secret valentine events. I am also grateful to those who organized gifting events. I can honestly say that I have enjoyed gifting as much as I enjoyed receiving, and I hope that I can inspire more to engage in these random acts of kindness.
