My name is Amanda! I'm 24 years old from New York. My only child is my son, Alex. He's my world and my everything. I'm currently a student working on my Bachelor's degree in English and Creative Writing. I run the Instagram @ACourtofBooksandLove and the A Court of Books and Love blog and YouTube (which I'm on a hiatus from right now). I hope to one day help indie authors/lesser known authors work to spread their name and get their book to where they want it to be and ready for the public's eyes. If you're an indie author, feel free to email me to see if I'm interested in your novel (whether it's already published or not). I mainly read romance, YA fantasy, and YA contemporary. When emailing, please provide a copy of the novel or a link to where I can find it. I won't be able to purchase every book for myself, but I will try when I can. For now, if I am interested in your novel, then I will read and review it on my blog and my Instagram. If you would like some more in depth thoughts about the book, I can try to do that as well, just let me know what you're looking for in your email.

Good morning everyone. I’m going to be talking about the books I hope to read during the 48-hour Queer Blackathon. It was so hard to choose what books I wanted to read during this readathon, but I think I decided!
Let me know in the comments below what books you’re planning on reading!
Also, don’t forget to check out this link to continue supporting the BLM movement.
Good morning everyone. I hope you’re well. Today I’m going to be talking about mythical/legendary creatures I’d like to see more in books. And while I’m at it, I’m going to share some Instagram artwork of these creatures.
Though I would like to point out that a lot of these may be in a lot of books, so if you have any recommendations for books that include these creatures, then recommend them below. These are creatures I would like to see more, not that I don’t think are represented enough. Represented probably isn’t the right word here, but you get what I’m saying.
As always, make sure you check out this link to continue to educate yourself, donate, sign, and fight for the BLM movement.
Let’s get right into this post. I’ll be listing five creatures and make sure to comment below if you’d like to see me do this again.
Good morning everyone. Today’s post is a little bit different than my normal ones. Today, I’m going to be talking about my villagers on Animal Crossing and what I think about each of them. To make things a bit more interesting, I will also be including their current ranking in popularity (according to this poll) to see if I go with the popular vote or not.
Make sure you all check out this link where you can find resources to continue supporting the BLM movement. It’s not over. So make sure you are continuing to fight and support.
Good morning everyone! I hope you’re all doing wonderful. Today I’m going to be wrapping up this last week with my reading, favorite blog posts, and some stats to keep some things interesting. I’ll also give you a brief idea of my reading/watching plans for this coming week.
I’m going to be trying a new setup for these posts, so if you want anything included in them, let me know and I’ll try to add it in next week.
That all being said, make sure you all are checking out this link for some resources on where to donate, petitions to sign, and ways to educate yourself on the BLM movement. Keep educating yourself and keep fighting. This isn’t over.
Good morning everyone and happy Monday. Make sure you all are staying safe as you’re returning to work.
Also, don’t forget to click here to view any resources to sign petitions, donate, or educate yourself on the BLM movement. Click here for a list of movies that will help educate you. Don’t just limit yourself to watching movies that show racism and inequality. Watch other things as well, like romances featuring Black characters.
Today I’m going to be wrapping up the movies that I chose for my round 1 of movies I want to watch, all of which were romances or had romantic elements. I know that I could have done better with choosing movies, so let me know some of your favorite movies (romance or not) in the comments below.
Good morning everyone. I hope you’re all doing well and happy Sunday.
As always, remember to continue to fight for BLM and click here for more resources on where to sign, donate, and educate yourself. But also, check out this link to support Black Booktubers made by Myonna. Don’t just follow them to check it off a “things I did good today” list. Follow them and engage with them. Listen and learn their stories.
That being said, today I’m going to shoutout to five Booktubers that I follow and think that you should as well. I’m just going to make my way down my subscription box and share some of these people with you!
Good morning everyone. I hope you’re all doing well. Today, I’m going to be talking about some movies that I would like to watch. There’s not really any theme to these, though there might be in the future. This post doesn’t really have a theme.
I do have a post where I talk about Romance Movies I’d Like To See and I am working on that list right now and reviewing them in a post as I go that will go up after I finish those movies. I’ll do the same for these movies.
Before we get into these books, make sure you check out this link for resources for supporting the BLM movement and this link for any Black-owned Independent bookstores if you’re thinking about buying any books instead of shopping at the bigger stores like Amazon or Barnes and Noble.
Now, let’s get into this list of movies that I would love to watch.
Good morning everyone. I hope you’re all doing well. I was debating doing this blog post specifically because it’s going up a lot later than I normally would have these going up. But that’s okay. I decided to do it anyway, even though there isn’t going to be too much information in it because I haven’t really been reading.
Good morning everyone! I’m back from my mini-haitus. There was just a lot going on and I needed a few days off to get my crap back together and get ahead. But I’m back again and I plan on spending the week getting myself ahead of posts and videos.
That being said, Today I’ll be sharing how my reading went for the week and what I was watching. All that fun stuff.
