2020 is a leap year, which means tomorrow is one more extra day in February to read!
This month I ended up reading seven books, ranging from re-reading an old favorite (Little Woman) to going out of my comfort zone (Woven in Moonlight). A quick recap is below:
Woven in Moonlight (3) After discussing more with the @literaryleague , I realized I didn’t like this book as much as I initial thought. It’s still a stunning debut from a new author!
Such A Fun Age (3.5) Sometimes all the bookstagram hype falls short. While it was an enjoyable read, it didn’t really live up to my expectations and what I thought this book would tackle based on the summary.
Their Eyes Were Watching God (3.5) The prose was beautiful, and felt strikingly modern, but the vernacular made it really hard for me to get into the book as much as I would have liked, which is a shame.
Little Woman (4) This was my third time re-reading this after a ten year gap. After seeing the new adaptation, it was nice to see that this still holds up so well.
All You Can Ever Know (5) This book moved me in so many different ways, it’s hard to pinpoint exactly why I loved it so much. Memoirs can be tricky, but this one hit all the right notes.
The Ways of White Folks (5) Despite being published close to 100 years ago, Langston Hughes short stories feel so modern and tackles problems within the black experience that are (unfortunately) still relevant.
Fleishman is in Trouble (5) These characters were so well written, I truly felt like I knew them. And the ending! Could not recommend this one enough.
