Y'all know we loooooved Liselle Sambury's young adult psychological thriller, Delicious Monsters!! Part of the pleasure of experiencing the novel was that we were able to immersive read the title. That means we listened to the audiobook from @librofm while reading a physical copy.

So we were giddy when we found this behind the scenes clip. What do you think?!?!

We have signed copies of Delicious Monsters. Link in bio: @sistahscifi | www.sistahscifi.com | https://sistahscifi.com/products/delicious-monsters | https://libro.fm/audiobooks/9781797152400-delicious-monsters

Better yet, check it out from your local #library 😀.

Reposted @lisellesambury Check out this behind-the-scenes video of @sandraokuboyejo recording the audiobook edition of Delicious Monsters!! When we were looking for narrators, I found a clip of Sandra reading and immediately begged my publisher to see if we could hire her. She’s delivered such a beautiful and haunting performance that’s everything I could have wished for and more for the voice of Daisy 💚 it’s available now from @simon.audio - visit the link in my bio to get the audiobook

Reposted @byalexajoan I am patiently waiting for the third book in this legendborn cycle… I don’t even know where author @tracydeonn would go with the next book! I mean wow.

@sistahscifi thanks for the recommendation. I am speechless. I just finished the book, I have to digest everything I have read over the last three weeks… and I may have to read both of the books again.

Well what a way to end the night!
Peace Ya’ll ❤️🤍💙💜

It's a Sistah Scifi Wine Down Wednesday Throwback! @isisasare was joined by @omarepps and @clarenceahaynes discussing their book Nubia: The Awakening.

About Nubia: The Awakening: For Zuberi, Uzochi, and Lencho, Nubia is a mystery. Before they were born, a massive storm destroyed their ancestral homeland, forcing their families to flee across the ocean to New York City. Nubia, a utopic island nation off the coast of West Africa, was no more, and their parents’ sorrow was too deep for them to share much of their history beyond the folklore. But New York, ravaged by climate change and class division, is far from a safe haven for refugees, and Nubians live as outcasts, struggling to survive in the constantly flooding lower half of Manhattan, while the rich thrive in the tech-driven sky city known as the Up High.

🔥DO. NOT. MISS. THIS.🔥

Check out the full episode on our instagram: @sistahscifi. We have signed copies of Nubia available one our website. Purchase link in bio: @SistahScifi | www.sistahscifi.com | https://sistahscifi.com/products/nubia-the-awakening. Signed copies of Nubia are also available at @OaklandiaCafexBakery at 555 12th Street Oakland, CA open M to F 7AM to 5PM. And of course you can check them out from your favorite public

we loved this discussion with #NisiShawl about their first middle-grade novel Speculation published by @leeandlow
Brioxy and Sistah Scifi Book Club present Dark Matter!!!

📚03/01 Charles W. Chesnutt, "The Goophered Grapevine" a story published in the book The Conjure Woman by Charles Chesnutt in 1899. It is nominally about a character named Uncle Julius. He tells the story of Henry, a man who would gain and lose strength based on the seasons, due to an accidental eating of some magical grapes."

📚03/08 @nisi_shawl, "At the Huts of Ajala" "The main difference is her head. Or the lack of it; her head is not there. In its place are rays of shimmering light that stream down from a luminous ball floating nearly a foot above the stem of her graceful neck."

📚03/15 Henry Dumas, "Ark of Bones" short story published posthumously in 1974.

📚03/22 Tony Medina, "Butta's Backyard Barbecue"

📚03/29 Kiini Ibura Salaam, "At Life's Limits" - Excerpt - "Then her eyes flutter closed. The dark moons are strong, decides WaLiLa. This woman will be my host."
