I read a total of 7 books in January, which is probably an all time monthly high since I was in grade school!

  1. Beloved
  2. Citizen: An American Lyric
  3. On the Come Up
  4. Purple Hibiscus
  5. The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks
  6. Daisy Jones & the Six
  7. There There

I took on poetry, young adult, classics; I read my first Morrison. I read the Chimamanda Ngozi Adiche book that I’d avoided because the cover didn’t match her other book covers. I read a scientific biography, had some fun with Daisy Jones, and took on some devastating and beautiful truths.

If I had to pick one book, drum roll, please, my favorite pick of January was…

Purple Hibiscus which was absolutely superb! I highly highly highly recommend it to everyone!

On to Black History Month with 43 more to go.
