Ain't Burned All the Bright
Ain't Burned All the Bright - Jason Reynolds

Three.  That’s all it took.  Whereas some books use series, some use chapters, and some use pages of text, Reyolds began this book using three powerful, long sentences to get his point across.  Using his artistic talent, Jason Griffin grabbed those words and he chopped and stretched them.  Inserting his special touch, Jason manipulated those words, until he was left with a book that is equally part art and poetry.  To fully appreciate it, I read through it a few times.


It's the combination of art and verse that grabbed me.  The erratic use of language spread across this book, I thought for sure, it had to be more than three sentences for its message was worthy of a novel. I couldn’t help but feel the emotions this young man was experiencing and identify with his frame of mind.  Where is everyone?  Where was his own family?  His mother was physically glued to the TV, his father boxed in another room coughing, his brother lost inside his video games and the telephone was connected to his sister’s ear.  But, really where were they?  He’s looking for a sign in these individuals as his world spins relentlessly.  There’s too much going on and not enough solid answers, as the state of the world, the pandemic and his own world changes.  Why won’t his parents change the channel?  Why doesn’t anyone change the channel? An excellent hard-hitting question.


The contrasting use of color, the edgy images that spread across the page with the limited use of language allow this book to tap into your soul.  I felt energized yet also saddened as the truth this book conveyed hit me. This is not a book you should rush through but slow-down, appreciate those three sentences and the art that surrounds them.  Make sure you read Reynolds and Griffin section in the back of the book titled, “Is Anyone Still Here?”  I highly recommend this book.

A Long Way Down: A Graphic Novel
Long Way Down: The Graphic Novel - Jason Reynolds

I loved Long Way Down, also written by this author, so when I saw this graphic novel, I knew I had to read it. Long Way Down touched me on so many different levels as the story played out. Jason used space and time to tell this story, the words arranged just right, letting my emotions take over. I love this about free verse; the reader can put a piece of themself into the story.

In Long Way Down: The Graphic Novel, I felt that my attention was centered more on the elevator ride than on the emotions in the story. I was concerned about the individuals on the ride: trying to figure out who Will would encounter each time the elevator door opened on each of the floors and what that individual would mean to him. This book’s focus was totally different than what I had with Long Way Down. I enjoyed learning more about how these individuals mattered and why they were important to Will which I don’t remember focusing on when I read Long Way Down. Whereas Long Way Down was more emotional for me, this graphic novel explained more of Will’s story to me. To me, they complimented one another.

There is a lot of information in this book, this isn’t a graphic novel that you can speed read through. This story is emotional but I think the feelings were angrier and heavier than what I had felt with the other book, when they felt hurtful and heartbreaking. I thought the book was easy to follow and I enjoyed the illustrations. I liked how the illustrations show just enough information not to take away from the text. 4.5 stars.

The Hunger Angels by Jason Miller
The Hunger Angels: A Slim in Little Egypt Short Story (Slim in Little Egypt Mystery) - Jason Miller
I picked this up not realizing it is an in-between novella. I decided to give it a go anyways.
I'm glad I did.
I might not know backstories, but the characters were cool enough that I want to read the whole series now.
I need to know if Snake gets his 'just desserts'.
Yup, a quick little read that packed a punch. Literally.

Audio Review: My Darling Arrow (St. Mary’s Rebels #1) by Saffron A Kent, Narrated by Jason Clarke & Sarah Puckett
My Darling Arrow (St. Mary’s Rebels #1) - Jason Clarke,Saffron A. Kent,Sarah Puckett



My Darling Arrow by Saffron A. Kent

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Audio Review: My Darling Arrow (St. Mary’s Rebels #1) by Saffron A Kent, Narrated by Jason Clarke & Sarah Puckett

My Darling Arrow moves beyond the cheesiness of a fairytale and dives into love in all it's painful glory. Kent shows off the darker side of life. From unpredictable to hard to resist, it's a long road. Salem and Arrow will make a mess of emotions with all the drama. Clarke and Puckett intensify the burn with their razor sharp delivery of these two broken people. From hello to goodbye, Kent bleeds the heart dry and leaves a lasting mark on the soul. Not easy to love, but hard to forget.
