I read Citizen: An American Lyric, by Claudia Rankine, in a couple of sittings...some of which played out during a bout of insomnia. It's a crime that I haven't written a review about this yet because I cannot stop thinking about it.
Last Night at the Lobster, by Stewart O'Nan, was not my cup. Read my cranky review.
Legacy: An Anthology, from Velvet Morning Press, was a good read, and I was happy to have Adria J. Cimino on the blog for an interview.
Giovanni's Room, by James Baldwin, was stellar. Beautiful writing and a gripping story. It filled my head and heart up.
Lost on Planet China, by J. Maarten Troost, was fun, irreverent at times, and still managed to teach me about China's history and present day.
Nimona, by Noelle Stevenson, is my favorite graphic novel thus far this year. Review coming soon
I read the first issues of The Fade Out and The Wicked + The Divine for Free Comics Day. I'm hooked. I'll have to get the trades of both.
Jem and the Holograms #3 still has me hooked on the series.
Lumberjanes #14 was delightful as always. I really really enjoyed this particular romp.
I gulped down Ms. Marvel: Generation Why (volume 2) just yesterday!
Have you read any of these? Recommendations for things I should pick up based on these winners?
