Eerie β€’ Fantastical β€’ Inclusive
β €
πŸ’¬ β€œEvery great city has a soul. Some are ancient as myths, and others are as new and destructive as children. New York City? She’s got six.”

πŸ“š The City We Became
by N. K. Jemisin
β €
❓REP YO CITY!!! Where are you from? If you had to become the super hero of your town, would you be about that life?
β €
β €
Synopsis: The City We Became is about six unconnected New Yorkers brought together to fight an otherworldly invasion. That’s all the intel I’m giving on this synopsis!
β €
πŸ”‘ This book deals with issues of
* Hometown pride
* LGBTQ+
* Racism, & Sexism
* Community
β €
β €
❀️The imagination of this book is absolutely bananas. I’m talking Jordan Peele and Octavia E. Butler had a baby with a Maya Angelou babysitter and Spike Lee play date. My mind was twisted beyond its limits! We are not worthy!
β €
⚠️ You have to be in the right headspace to read N.K. Jemisin. I’m talking clear your mind and pay close attention or the minute details will pass you by.
β €
πŸ’” I initially couldn’t get into this. It was just that odd. After the third attempt, I got it! I implore you to exercise patience with this book. It clicks after the third chapter.
β €
✨ Recommendations: New Yorkers, fans of #Afrofuturism , science fiction, fantasy, or speculative fiction.
