January Wrap-up

I read 11 books in January:

Turtles All the Way Down by John Green

The Power by Naomi Alderman

Obama: An Intimate Portrait: The Historic Presidency in Photographs by Pete Souza

One Crazy Summer by Rita Williams-Garcia

Ghosts of the Tsunami: Death and Life in Japan's Disaster Zones by Richard Lloyd Parry

Troublemaker: Surviving Hollywood and Scientology by Leah Remini

The Annotated Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens

How to Be Happy by Eleanor Davis

Wonder by R.J. Palacio

Homegoing by Yaa Gyasi

The Bright Hour: A Memoir of Living and Dying by Nina Riggs

7 were fiction and 4 were nonfiction. My goal was at least two nonfiction this month! So yay. I made it! I've been doing a lot better on my reviews. I sill need to get Wonder and Homegoing up this next week.

Wonder was my favorite fiction book this month. I laughed and cried with son while we read it together. We had some great experiences together.

My absolute favorite nonfiction this month was Ghosts of the Tsunami. Five stars from me. It's truly an achievement in writing about humanity.
