The books I read were:

  • 5 nonfiction
  •  2 audiobooks
  • Set in the U.S., England, and in space

The authors were:

  • 6 white women, 3 African-American women, 1 Afro-Latina woman, 1 Korean-American man, and 1 white man

Which ones would I totally NOT recommend?

Usually I say which ones I would totally recommend but everything was pretty good this month.  You really won’t go wrong with any of them with the exception of From the Corner of the Oval which has way too little political stuff and way too much drunkeness, poor life choices, and toxic relationships.  









I’m participating in #Blackathon in February. It has been expanded to all month.  I’ve already read the group book, The Poet X, which was amazing.

I got nothing.
