February Wrap Up

There just isn’t enough time. I can’t believe it’s March already. So much still to do and not enough time to do it. 

But I do have a list of books that I read in February. So let’s get right into it.

In the initial drafting of this post, I was going to tell you which picture books I liked the most, but I can’t do that now. I can’t make that decision. 

Middle Grade

The only middle grade novel I read in February was the graphic novel New Kid by Jerry Craft. Honestly, it was one of the best middle grade novels I’ve read in a while (to be fair, I can’t remember the last middle grade novel that I read.

I will be writing a sticky note review for New Kid; I’ve been carrying the book around in my bag just in case I find a moment to get to it. It just hasn’t happened yet.

So keep an eye out if middle grade graphic novels are your thing.

The two novels for this month were both on the theme of lived experience of brown girls – one black and from the hood, one Iranian-American in 2002. Both were fantastic.

Cicada was a little weird, but the art was stunning.

The Choices series by Skyy

I stepped way out of my comfort zone again. After loving Once Ghosted, Twice Shy, the black lesbian romance novel I read in January, I decided to give the genre another go. I did have some challenges with the story (gender roles, biphobia), but the series definitely got better as it progressed. I’ll write a review of these as well at some point in the near future.
