Library Loot (April 10 to 16)

badge-4Library Loot is a weekly event co-hosted by Claire from The Captive Reader and Sharlene from Real Life Reading that encourages bloggers to share the books they’ve checked out from the library. If you’d like to participate, just write up your post-feel free to steal the button-and link it using the Mr. Linky any time during the week. And of course check out what other participants are getting from their libraries.

 

It’s Wednesday! Happy Library Loot Day!

What did you get from your library this week? Claire has the link-up!

Just a couple of books for me this Library Loot. I’m attempting to read more from my own shelves this month! But since I do co-host this meme, I need something from the library too!

 

Internment – Samira Ahmed

I love this cover. And also, I previously enjoyed Ahmed’s Love Hate and Other Filters

Rebellions are built on hope.

Set in a horrifying near-future United States, seventeen-year-old Layla Amin and her parents are forced into an internment camp for Muslim American citizens.

With the help of newly made friends also trapped within the internment camp, her boyfriend on the outside, and an unexpected alliance, Layla begins a journey to fight for freedom, leading a revolution against the internment camp’s Director and his guards.

Heart-racing and emotional, Internment challenges readers to fight complicit silence that exists in our society today

 

Fearless Females: The Fight for Freedom, Equality, and Sisterhood – Marta Breen

This beautifully illustrated graphic novel tells the stories of fearless females who have fought, and continue to fight, for the rights of women today.

Featuring familiar icons like Harriet Tubman and Malala Yousafzai, and introducing hidden figures like Táhirih, young readers will be fascinated reading about these women activists advocating for equality, education, and bodily integrity all throughout history, and it is sure to inspire a new generation of activists
