This weekly meme was created by The Broke and the Bookish. Today’s theme is Ten Books You’d Buy Right This Second If Someone Handed You A Fully Loaded Gift Card.
This theme is not a problem for me, I have a whole wishlist ready and waiting for me. If I only could I would buy them all right this moment, but I just have to control myself not to spend all my money on books.

Two brown girls dream of being dancers – but only one, Tracey, has talent. The other has ideas: about rhythm and time, about black bodies and black music, what constitutes a tribe, or makes a person truly free. It’s a close but complicated childhood friendship that ends abruptly in their early twenties, never to be revisited, but never quite forgotten, either…
Dazzlingly energetic and deeply human, Swing Time is a story about friendship and music and stubborn roots, about how we are shaped by these things and how we can survive them. Moving from North-West London to West Africa, it is an exuberant dance to the music of time
It’s Zadie Smith! I love her books, and this I’d pre-order first if I get a gift card.
