Dragons & Tea Book Club | July Pick

dragons & tea

Hey, loves! Okay, today we are announcing our July pick for the #DragonsAndTeaBookClub! We picked an ownvoices Muslim story, all about love and the importance of being seen. This story is told in alternating points of view, through letters between two teens, while one of them is staying with family in Qatar for two weeks! Both main characters are PoC, one being Trini-Pakistani, and other being biracial (Chinese and white)! Also, one of these characters have Multiple Sclerosis, which is something that is very near and dear to my family’s heart. But this is also a story about Islamophobia, and how it can be quiet and it can be loud, but it is always so hurtful and hateful. 💗

And we hope that you all will join us in our Goodreads Group, too! 🐉☕

But we also will be celebrating and talking with you all on Twitter and Instagram using the (hashtag) #DragonsAndTeaBookClub!
