BOOKS I READ: JUNE 2017
Wasn't gonna do this because does anyone even read these lists but I read a lot of good shit and these books deserve my praise (oops just realized I titled this July, that's what happens when I stay up all night)
- •Binti by Nnedi OkoraforThe first in a series of novellas. Very different and cool!
- •Saga Volume 7This was a sad volume but it was also great. Marko and Alana remain goals.
- •Alex and Eliza by Melissa de la CruzA fine YA romance retelling of how Alexander Hamilton and Eliza Schuyler met and fell in love. Ever since I keep thinking about how I'd rather read historical fiction about them at the end, but what can you do.
- •Amazing Spider-Man & Silk: The Spider(fly) EffectIs time travel the most original plot?? Nah. Was I deeply moved by this anyway? Yes
- •Isadora by Amelia GrayThis was GREAT. a bunch of messy awful weirdos trying to do their best and failing and failing and failing. Wonderful
- •Guardians of the Galaxy & X-Men: The Black VortexLike half my favorite characters were in this Volume I ate it up
- •Kindred Spirits by Rainbow RowellA very lovely short story about nerds and Star Wars
- •Daredevil Volume 5 by Mark WaidI think now I've read all the Mark Waid Daredevil and it really made me love Matt Murdoch so deeply
- •The Fade Out Act Three by Ed BrubakerDepressing end to a depressing series. Not a bad thing.
- •Ramona Blue by Julie MurphyTHIS WAS GREAT. YA Novel about a lesbian in small town Mississippi with a pregnant sister and a waitressing job and no aspirations who realizes she might be bisexual and that maybe she can dream big.
- •Swing Time by Zadie SmithI did not get this at all.
- •Moon Cop by Tom GauldA bizarre and moving little comic.
- •Hunger by Roxane GayI feel like I waited so long for this and I was not disappointed. For me both relatable and unrelatable, essential and entirely new. Great shit.
- •All Grown Up by Jami AttenbergThis fucking gutted me. About a single woman in New York in her late thirties finally maybe taking responsibility for her life. Hard to explain why without writing a memoir but ugh this cut me deep right now.
- •ODWABDANOTWM by Scaachi KouleEssays about growing up in Canada as the child of Indian Immigrants and living as a woman and friends and love and her parents. Great.
