Well, it’s 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.

    1. I desperately need to read Every Heart a Doorway! TSIAAS is also on my list. I’ll get to them both someday and I’m fairly sure I’ll love them!

  1. That’s a ton of books, damn, girl! I read a bunch of awesome writing about race this month — The Fire Next Time and then The Fire This Time, and Invisible Man, Got the Whole World Watching, and then Jeff Chang’s book We Gon’ Be Alright. All superb, and then I read a bunch of fun fantasy, of which Monstress and Iron Cast were my favorites. On to February!

    1. The only one of those I’ve read is Iron Cast, but I’ve got The Invisible Man on audio that I’m hoping to get to this month! I’m glad you got some great reading done!
