Reading in Review: February 2024


πŸ“š Reading in Review: February 2024 ⁣

This was another light reading month for me, and I’m ridiculously off track to complete this year’s outrageous reading goal, but… I still read. ♥️ ⁣

πŸ“– Attack on Titan Volume 1 by Hajime Isayama ⁣

One of the coolest things about having teenagers is that they introduce you to new things, and this series is proof.

πŸ“– Attack on Titan Volume 2 ⁣

πŸ“– Mercury by Amy Jo Burns⁣

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ ⁣
Everything I want in a family saga, with a bildungsroman as an added (and equally well done) bonus. ⁣

πŸ“– Built for This by Julia Turshen ⁣


πŸ“– Chain Gang All Stars by Nana Kwame Adjei-Brennan⁣

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ ⁣
Horribly dark and impossible to “enjoy”, yet so well crafted. ⁣

πŸ“– Fair Play by Eve Rodsky ⁣

Helpful and useful, but could have been shorter. ⁣

πŸ“– Bright Young Women by Jessica Knoll ⁣

Daring structure and command of language almost perfected but tripped up by its pacing. ⁣

πŸ“– Footnotes in Gaza by Joe Stacco ⁣

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ ⁣
No notes. 😭♥️ ⁣

πŸ“– Bibliophile by Jane Mount⁣

A reread of a beautifully illustrated collection of book notes. ⁣

πŸ“– Roughneck by Jeff Lemire ⁣

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ ⁣
Cold, bleak, dark, beautiful-noir at its graphic best. ⁣

πŸ“– Soundtrack of Silence by Matt Hay ⁣

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ ⁣
Everything memoir should be wrapped in a delightfully musical package. ⁣

πŸ“– Writing Into the Wound by Roxanne Gay ⁣


πŸ“– The Devil and Harper Lee by Mark Seal ⁣

⭐️⭐️⭐️ ⁣

πŸ“– The Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver ⁣


Let’s just say that Demon Copperhead should have been her 2nd Pulitzer. ⁣

πŸ“– Saturday Night at The Lakeside Supper Club by J. Ryan Stradal ⁣

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ ⁣
Never has a man written women so well and never has quiet fiction been such a comfort. ⁣

πŸ“– Science of Stretch by DK ⁣
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ ⁣

πŸ“– Start Here by Sohla El-Waylly ⁣

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ ⁣

So fun, so readable. ⁣

πŸ“– The Lord is My Courage by K.J. Ramsey ⁣

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ ⁣

I, truly, praise God for Ramsey’s *courage* to press into the intersection of our faith and our bodies and say what others won’t. ⁣

This book healed me in ways I’ll always be grateful for. ♥️⁣
