Kiki's Delivery Service is a classic for all those who love Hiyao Miyazaki films and this is the story that inspired the film. Kiki is such a delight and I don't know about you, but a whimsical story about a witch who travels to the seaside village of Koriko whilst forging new friendships is the kind of content that 2020 needs right now. Plus, there is a black cat, Jiji, who steals the scene.

Author, Brandy Colbert, does such a wonderful job at getting at the importance of voting, the barriers that get in the way, and navigating difficult racial conversations that needs to be addressed at any age. Marva Sheridan was the best friend I needed in high school because the importance of voting was lost on me as a teenager!

They say that you shouldn't judge a book by it's cover, but you absolutely should because this cover delivers. The Belles brings forth the neverending misconception of how beauty means good, when in reality, beauty is dark and dangerous. The world that Dhonielle Clayton creates draws you in with beauty, but darkness and an unstable society is what you end up staying for.

There is a lot of African American history and culture packed in this cookbook and one of my favourite parts is the stories behind each recipe. Learning about cultures that provide us with our favourite foods today is necessary. The history and recipes are there, but it's up to us to put in the work. Recipes I recommend (so far): Baked Macaroni & Cheese, Hibiscus & Ginger Sweet Tea, and Sweet Potato Pie!

This is such a feel-good book that I want everyone to read it. Lucky is the biggest K-pop star, Jack works for the tabloids, they eat amazing food in Hong Kong, and I just don't know what else there is. I am very food motivated and there are lots of good food in this book, amongst a rom-com feel to the plot.

A world where adults have to prepare children what it takes to keep Earth functional and sustainable.
