books I read this month

What I Read in January

Greenwich Park by Katherine Faulkner (not good)

Sorry Not Sorry: Dreams, Mistakes, and Growing Up by Naya Rivera (good peek at working actor life)

The Lifeguards by Amanda Eyre Ward (disappointing)

Carefree Black Girls by Zeba Blay (good)

Stepping Stones by Lucy Knisley (I continue to dislike her parents)

Hooked: How Crafting Saved My Life by Sutton Foster (interesting peek into her mom’s agoraphobia and how it effected her family and working actor life)

Thank you, Mr. Nixon by Gish Jen (always good)

The Times I Knew I Was Gay by Eleanor Crewes

Rose Petal Beach by Dorothy Koomson (way too long)

Wahala by Nikki May (pretty good)

Taste Makers: Seven Immigrant Women Who Revolutionized Food in America by Mayukh Sen (so bad. majorly disappointing)

O Beautiful by Jung Yun (good, abrupt ending)

Yinka, Where Is Your Huzband? by Lizzie Damilola Blackburn (I felt like I had a different opinion of the main character than the author did)

Fame-ish: My Life at the Edge of Stardom by Mary Lynn Rajskub (one of the odder memoirs I’ve read)

The Accomplice by Lisa Lutz (fun)

This Boy We Made: A Memoir of Motherhood, Genetics, and Facing the Unknown by Taylor Harris (way more religious than expected)
