The Machines of Bellatrix by Cary Caffrey – Goodreads
I finally got around to listening to this one, which I should have done months ago but a combination of being a mood reader and pretty terrible stress has basically screwed all of my TBR lists this year in a HUGE way. It was a fantastic second book though and I still love Sigrid and Suko’s relationship. I love everything about the two of them actually, and the end of this one left me screaming.
Relish: My Life in the Kitchen by Lucy Knisley – Goodreads
This was for my Food Memoir item on the Read Harder Challenge. I couldn’t fathom actually reading a novel about food without wanting to die because I’m very picky about the non-fiction I read, but as soon as I saw this graphic novel was an option I immediately requested a copy from the library. I really liked it! It had a great mix of stories as well as some recipes, all done in a really fun vibrant art style.
Kindred: Graphic Novel – Goodreads
This doesn’t come out until Jan 2017, but I like to get my graphic novel review copies out of the way quickly since the PDFs expire and I don’t really keep up with when they expire (because I’m lazy). I read Kindred a few weeks ago and really enjoyed it, it broke me but I enjoyed it. So I’m looking forward to this one. I can already see that the artist plays with the use of color in signifing the past from the present which I think it’s a pretty great choice.
Homegoing by Yaa Gyasi – Goodreads
This is a story told over several generations. It starts with two half-sisters who have very different lives; one is taken from her village and sold into slavery, and the other marries a white colonial who is a part of the slave trade. It then follows their descendants over the course of centuries.
