Well, January has been a month, hasn’t it? Luckily, needing to hide from things makes for a good reading month. Not so much a great mental health month, but there it is.
Books I read this month:
Jackaby | Lillian Boxfish Takes a Walk | Dreadnought | Sorcerer to the Crown | Rise: How a House Built A Family | Trans Voices | Always | Shadowshaper (review on 3/20) | The Witch With the Glitch | Dust Bowl Girls | Fearless (review on 2/9) | Flowers of Luna (review on 2/2) | Unburied Fables | Jerkbait | You Can’t Touch My Hair | Things We Lost In the Fire (review on 2/17) | The Education of Margot Sanchez (review on 2/13) | Here We Are (review on 2/3) | Born A Crime* | Piecing Me Together (review on 2/10) | Everything Belongs to Us (Review on 3/27)* | Binti:Home
*= Still reading. Some things take longer to get through than others.
Character Interview: Hello World by Tiffany Rose & Alexandra Tauber | #TBT: The Golden Lily by Richelle Mead | My #DiverseAThon TBR | Rapid Fire Book Tag | I’m Attempting to Beat The Backlist | Goals for 2017 | Cover Reveal:: 27 Hours by Tristina Wright |
You will notice that I took part in #DiverseAThon, but I’m still reading two of the books on that list. I totally bombed, due to life getting in the way, but I am still reading them! I’ll do my full wrap up once I actually finish Born a Crime & Everything Belongs to Us.
