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)
  1. Binti by Nnedi Okorafor
    The first in a series of novellas. Very different and cool!
  2. Saga Volume 7
    This was a sad volume but it was also great. Marko and Alana remain goals.
  3. Alex and Eliza by Melissa de la Cruz
    A 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.
  4. Amazing Spider-Man & Silk: The Spider(fly) Effect
    Is time travel the most original plot?? Nah. Was I deeply moved by this anyway? Yes
  5. Isadora by Amelia Gray
    This was GREAT. a bunch of messy awful weirdos trying to do their best and failing and failing and failing. Wonderful
  6. Guardians of the Galaxy & X-Men: The Black Vortex
    Like half my favorite characters were in this Volume I ate it up
  7. Kindred Spirits by Rainbow Rowell
    A very lovely short story about nerds and Star Wars
  8. Daredevil Volume 5 by Mark Waid
    I think now I've read all the Mark Waid Daredevil and it really made me love Matt Murdoch so deeply
  9. The Fade Out Act Three by Ed Brubaker
    Depressing end to a depressing series. Not a bad thing.
  10. Ramona Blue by Julie Murphy
    THIS 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.
  11. Swing Time by Zadie Smith
    I did not get this at all.
  12. Moon Cop by Tom Gauld
    A bizarre and moving little comic.
  13. Hunger by Roxane Gay
    I 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.
  14. All Grown Up by Jami Attenberg
    This 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.
  15. ODWABDANOTWM by Scaachi Koule
    Essays about growing up in Canada as the child of Indian Immigrants and living as a woman and friends and love and her parents. Great.
