January 2018

Each of the books I read in January, organized by mood.  I’ve linked my more in-depth reviews wherever possible!

  • For a coming of age story that will make your heart ache: Tell the Wolves I’m Home by Carol Rifka Brunt
  • For something to fill that craving for a little bit of inventive magic: The Paper Magician by Charlie N. Holmberg
  • For a Russian history lesson with a spirited but imperfect narrator: the first half of The Revolution of Marina M. by Janet Finch (I’m 400 pages into this 800 page story, stay tuned for the second half in February)
  • For a terrifying but unbelievably well written dystopian look at a potential future of our country: Red Clocks by Leni Zumas
  • For a laugh and a sigh and an appreciation at how much a three lined poem can encapsulate: Haikantwithyou by Nicole Best
  • For that time when you want to sit down and consider how much we have control over and how much is decided for us: The Immortalists by Chloe Benjamin
  • For a powerful look at the way women are valued for their fertility in Nigeria: Stay with Me by Ayobami Adebayo
Skip: The Women in the Castle by Jessica Shattuck
