I spent some extra time off work in doctor’s appointments and in the hospital with the husband after his surgery so I got some extra reading done. (He’s recovering nicely.) I finished 20 books.

They were set in:

  • Mexico
  • India
  • France
  • Texas, New Jersey, Washington, Kansas, New York, and Iowa
  • The Bahamas
  • Hong Kong
  • and various imaginary lands


  • Adult General Fiction
  • YA Fantasy
  • Adult Urban Fantasy
  • High Fantasy
  • Memoir
  • Graphic Novels – historical fiction and nonfiction

There were 17 unique authors:

  • 11 were women and 6 were men
  • Non – United States authors were from Sweden, Australia, and England
  • 6 of the 17 authors were POC
  • 1 book was originally not written in English

I debated the weirdness of Atomik Aztex and won a bundle of weird ebooks.

Coming Up

I love swaps so I signed up for this one:

Book Expo America is in May in Chicago. I’m a discussion leader on one day and I’m going to be an onsite correspondent for Armchair BEA. I’m looking forward to that!
