[CLOSED] Happy Birthday to me GIVEAWAY! It’s my birthday! Those who know me know I LOVE giving away my books. There’s no better feeling than giving a great book to someone you care about. So on my birthday I thought I’d do a giveaway of a book I recently finished and absolutely loved. Shoutout to @erins_library for putting this on my radar!
The world building in this book is fantastic. Imagine a different America where magic is real and is shaped by individual cultures and beliefs. Ellie is Lipan Apache and has the magical skill of raising ghost, something passed down through her family for generations. When her cousin gets in a mysterious car accident and dies she must use her knowledge and skills of her family and friends to find the murderer.
It is both a fantasy and mystery novel and at the center of it all it is about the love of family and friends. This was written by Darcie Little Badger and this is her debut novel. According to her author bio she is an “Earth scientist and a fan of the weird, beautiful, and haunting. She is also an enrolled member of the Lipan Apache Tribe of Texas.” I can’t wait to see what she creates next. This book made me nostalgic in all the right ways. I’m so excited that this generation of young readers and writers have someone like her to look up to.
All you gotta do if you want to enter is write in the comments a book by an Indigenous author you have read OR one you’re excited to read. Personally I can’t wait to read Even as We Breathe by Annette Sanooke Clapsaddle who is a member of the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians. And of course feel free to share if you know others would be interested in reading this book!
Love you all. This community has inspired me so much!! I’ll close the giveaway Saturday 11:30 AM PST. Open to US and Canada. #bookstagram #ReadIndigenousBooks #ReadIndigenousAuthors #AlwaysReading #ilovebooks
